    Need advice on AiMesh and NFS server.

    Copying file from A-->B kills internet and network but B-->A is fine

    Some time ago I had a problem with my Windows server 2012 R2 downloads failing. My ISP of course blamed my equipment. I had an ASUS RT-AC878U. So I replaced it with an RT-AC88U. That didn't fix the issue. It turned out to be a dodgy port on my Fibre Terminating Device ("NTD"). When I purchased...

    380.66 (_2) Bridge Multicast Snooping Problem

    I think the new setting to enable bridge multicast snooping is broken. My only evidence is when I'm watching IPTV, the LAN lights on all the devices behind my AC3100 are flashing continuously.
