    TimeMachine, Network Backups, and macOS Big Sur and Monterey

    Good article on updates that Apple has done for MacOS 11 and 12 - as of Big Sur, TimeMachine can and does by default, use APFS in the SparseBundle image for networked backups... Note that it will not convert an HFS+ image to an APFS image, to make use of APFS, one does have to start over with...

    mDNS name drifting on ZenWiFi XT8

    I've got this issue where the mDNS name of my router keeps changing or -should I say- increasing. What do I mean by "mDNS name"? One of my router's hostname is set to `ZenWiFi_XT8-Main`, so it's reachable at `zenwifi_xt8-main.local`, and this ".local" name is the mDNS name. What is the...

    Decoding RT-AC86U

    First off I would like to thank the lot of you, as reading threads and posts here helped me decide on this Asus router. Though money was not an issue, things here were so well articulated here, it helped understand my own needs and bite the right bullet. Imagine I was going to buy Nighthawk...

    AC86U USB Drives not recognized & Time Machine not working

    I'm a novice at routers. I bought this router based upon reviews and the fact that they advertise that you can use if for Mac Time Machine backups. I've contact ASUS and while they are very nice - they're not at all helpful. They don't seem to grasp the nature of the problem. I have two...

    Time Machine Issues

    Recently, I tried to setup on a 68u and an 88u with the same result. The router see's and mounts an unencrypted drive but when I select the path all i get is the apparently hidden and tiny Boot_OS_x partition. The drives have existing time machine backups and plenty of free space. The several...

    Is it possible to enable wireless Time Machine backups for Macs to a USB HDD connected to my RT-AC66U? I might be confused, but it seems like there is a possibility by looking here: https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1004458/ I don't, however, have the Time Machine app under USB apps, is there a...
