    DOCSIS + Wifi6 MESH solution?

    I am seeking an upgrade for my old Netgear C6300 router, it is pretty outdated in technology (DOCSIS 3.0 instead of 3.1) and on top of that it does not cover all my rooms, so I decided to go into Mesh. I have a pretty petty 3000 sq ft house. I have read several threads here, and I see there are...

    Is it possible to run AdGuard Home on Orbi LBR20?

    Here is the github for AGH. It is for OpenWRT, and my understanding is the Orbi's firmware is modified OpenWRT. My Orbi LBR20 has Voxel Firmware. I can add Entware if needed, as there is no sudo, apt-get, or opkg functions on it currently. I have SSH access via Putty. Anyone know if this is...

    Orbi+Voxel external drive unmounted?

    Two strange things happened today (or maybe in the last couple of days). Yesterday my Mac complained my shared drive got disconnected, but I didn't bother too much since I had the Mac sleeping for a couple of days and I assumed it just got disconnected. Today our power went out, but fortunately...

    Orbi problem with DHCP after setting up Diversion latest Merlin Build

    Hi, I recently updated to the new Merlin Build with AI-mesh new GUI. The problem is that every time I setup my Orbi in Ap mode I can’t get IPs from the DHCP server on my ASUS. The computer I connect right to the ASUS gets an iP & works. I notice all my ORBI devices receive an ip of...

    Orbi/CBR40 - Viewing current and max NAT table size

    As the topic says. How can I view the current and max sizes of an Orbi 802.11ac's NAT table? My model is the CBR40, but I imagine it's a telnet command that applies to all Orbis. Can't find it in the web GUI, but I suppose it could be hiding from me. Thanks
