    I've googled and read too much on AiMesh, APs, Repeaters, confuses the heck out of me and just need someone that knows what they are talking about to advise me on what will work best.

    Asus AC-88U Router problem as a Repeater

    How to turn off AP Isolation while in bridge/repeater mode on RT-AC88U

    I have a RT-AC88U and RT-AC68U that are in bridge/repeater mode connected to a linksys router. I have security cameras and my phone connected to the bridge on 2G and I can see they are connected and operating as expected, but I am unable to ping them. I am assuming the AP Isolation is on, but...

    Mash Network vs Extender Long range

    Hi all, I am currently faced with the following problem. At my new place I am trying to expend my WiFi signal. Due to structure limitation, the position of the router and the idea position of the extender/repeated are fixed (no possibility to reduce the distance). There are no LAN cable...

    RT-AC88U: DHCPRequest via 2.4GHZ Wlan does not work properly (Repeater, DHCP)

    I was searching for a solution of my problem now over one year... Problem: I have a repeater (tried several models, even Asus RP-AC66u, using now a TP-Link RE500): This Repeater was linked with the RT-AC88U on 2.4Ghz Wlan. With Asus-Firmware 380.3341 everything worked fine. Repeater got a...

    Thoughts on the linksys ea9500 v2?

    I’m leery of belkin products, firstly, but I have been looking for a router that has strong WiFi signals for a new android tv box. My current router is an 86u, and it’s in a less than ideal location for delivering signal through a chicane hallway and a bedroom door (best place I could put it)...

    how do i set up second router as an extender, seperate SSID, no DHCP,WISP?

    Ok really must admit here that i know nothing about networking this is my 1st try at any sort of range extension and it is not going well for me at all. I first tried to install a wifi repeater and it was a total disaster, the repeater used the same SSID and password as the main router with...

    Repeater/Bridge Alternatives for Asus RT-AC87U Router?

    So I have a Dodo Hub acting as the router and modem for my network. This was provided by my ISP, Dodo. I also have an Asus RT-AC87U router that I want to use. As you may know, the RT-AC87U does not have a repeater mode, unlike other Asus routers. *RT-AC87U only has 3 operation modes; Wireless...

    Repeater Mode Difficulties on AC68U

    Hi there, I jumped on the TM AC1900 bandwagon around Black Friday time, and finally had some time last weekend to reflash back to AC68U and upgraded to Merlin. The experience had been overall positive. Still, a couple issues linger after my best attempt to google up networking terms and making...

    [projects] - Espressif ESP8266 AP/Mesh Wifi Repeater/AP

    Fun little project - the ESP modules are fairly affordable, and well supported. @thiggins - not sure it this should be here, or over in the smarthome sub-forum, but since this is WiFi, this is as good a place as any since we don't have a hobby oriented single board device subforum for things...

    TP-Link repeaters wastes 715 MB/month on NTP

    If you’ve got a recent model TP-Link repeater (not routers!) on your network, you may want to look more closely into its NTP related traffic. Especially if you’re paying by the megabyte or are on a tight monthly data cap! I found that the firmware on TP-Link repeaters sends and receives 715 MB...

    Is there anyway to get my repeater to use a different channel?

    My repeater is using the same channel as the main router and so is my Roku4 (which is another story /me shakes fist), but since I can't convince the Roku4 to not be stupid, can I change the channel that the repeater uses? I don't see it in the web settings.

    Is mesh a good choice if the number one priority is stability?

    Typical use case of the home Wi-Fi: a) Speed (bandwidth) is not important, as long as something above 40 Mbps (or 5 MB/s) can be maintained; b) Online gaming: consistently low latency is very important, and intermittent droppings of packages cannot be tolerated; c) Video calls: it is not...

    Can I use an RT-AC66U as a wireless repeater?

    I have an RT-AC66U, Windows 8. I recently changed apartments and the guy upstairs is willing to share his Internet connection. Since our work patterns are different, this seems a great way to save costs. The signal from upstairs is too weak to penetrate our entire apartment. It seem I ought to...
