    AX-89X All Ethernet Ports except 10G-Base T are not wokring

    This morning I woke up to this disaster. At first, I thought my APs are acting weird so I power-cycled the POE switch but no luck. Then I noticed all wired devices except my desktop, which is connected to the 10G-Base T port, are offline. I tried power-cycling the router as well as factory...

    RT-AX89X and Smart Connect

    So I've been trying out Smart Connect on my RT-AX89X. Unfortunately, a lot of the settings are not configurable when Smart Connect is on. For example, I would like to be able to choose channels manually and limit the 2.4 band to 20 MHz, among other changes. (I think this may apply to other...

    Solved GT-AX6000 - Control Channel Auto issues

    So while evaluating an RT-AX89X to go with my new 2 gig Internet service, I am also trying out a GT-AX6000 and noticed an issue. When I set the bandwidth to 20/40/80/160 and have the Control Channel on Auto, it will not go into 160MHz mode. It sets the channel on 153 or 157 usually and stays...

    ASUS RT-AX89X QoS issue with self hosted nginx instance

    Whenever I turn on QoS on my AX89X I am no longer able to connect to any websites that I host on an nginx instance internally on my wan using internet facing URLs. I'm using the URLs for the internet so it's doing a DNS lookup to my ip and probably going through the WAN via port forwarding(443)...

    Asus RT-AX89x SFP+ slower than 1gig ports, notably so for upload. Anyone still having issues with this?

    I found some threads motioning SFP+ issues with the Asus RT-AX89x but it was a months ago on a closed thread. I just picked this up as I'm getting 2gig internet next week and I've had a 10gig aqtion 107 on my asrock 'creator' motherboard that has never gone past 1gig. I put in a Wiitek rj45...

    ASUS AX89X - Google Fiber Support

    I'm fortunate enough to have Google Fiber available and would love it if this router would support 2.5Gbe connections via the SPF+. I plan to email ASUS to request this feature and I'm putting this here to encourage others to do the same.

    RT-AX89X - what is the "correct" price?

    In Amazon US the price is $411(originally $450) but in German Amazon it cost €695 (≈ $825) - almost exactly twice as much. In both cases it is sold directly by Asus. In UK Amazon it is not even available (at least I can't find it), nor is it available in the Asus Store. Why is this? Delivery...

    RT-AX89X vs RT-AX88U

    I've been wanting the 89X for a while now but it's been sold out everywhere for over 3 weeks. The 88U is also on my radar and I can find that in stock. I really have no need to the 10G Ethernet or the 10G SFP as I don't run any servers at home. What I do have is a smart home with a lot of...
