    PCVR Asus XT8 AiMesh local network traffic path

    Wireguard performance on ASUS XT8 running VPN client

    I have an XT8 running the latest Merlin firmware (GNUTON build). On this XT8, I have a VPN client running Wireguard. With Wireguard on, download and upload speeds are both 200 Mbps. Video passing through wireguard on the router is very choppy and frequently buffers. When I install wireguard...

    "Fun" with SAMBA on XT8 Mesh LAN (It's not working!)

    Two upfront confessions: I am a complete noob with this topic, and whilst I am IT literate, a lot of the relevant networking terminology I just don't know (For example: with as simple a thing as "\\server\share" I'm not sure exactly what each thing is, even though it's obvious! Don't get me...

    ZenWifi XT8 w/ Gnuton, weird Wifi Issues

    I currently have 4 ZenWifi XT8 with Gnuton's firmware. Technically it's completely irrelevant that I use Gnuton's firmware becuase the issue I'm describing here happened both with the original firmware and with this one, so it doesn't seem anything to do with firmwares itself Thing is that it's...

    Asus XT8 or Asus ET8?

    Hey all, wanted to get your thoughts on these two routers. First off a little bit about my needs, I have a 1000 down/30 up connection from my ISP (currently being heavily underutilized because of the very very old wireless router that I had laying around). My house is an older (~1960s) 2-storey...

    ASUS ZenWiFi AX XT8 horrendously slow speeds and connectivity issues.

    Hi guys! Less than a month ago I bought the ZenWifi 2-pack and I installed it in my 81 m2 apartment. I thought that since the apartment has a bit of an unusual structure, I would definitely need a mesh network to get better coverage and above all else - speed. I was shocked to find out that...

    ZenWifi does not recognize USB drive.

    Replacing an aged Airport Extreme network, I just installed a new XT8 system and added a RT-AX56U as a third node. While trying to attach a Mac OS Extended external USB drive to the AX56U, I found that the drive was not recognized in the router interface. Is that because of the drive format...

    Asus XT8 Major WiFi Issues

    So this is my last ditch effort before I use AMEX to file an insurance claim on defective equipment. ASUS support has been dragging out my case since July and keeps asking for me to submit the same information over and over and now they are claiming it is a hardware issue and I have to pay to...
