    Random 802.11 packets on wl0(2.4ghz)?

    To expand on the title, I picked up some random packets while running tcpdump for my wl0 2.4ghz interface. These packets seem to refer to other wireless devices inferred from the packet data. No IPs or any identifiers, just my router’s MAC addr in each packet header. Is this just random AP...

    Guest Network Causes 2.4 Ghz Conflict

    Hi, Every year i am forced to turn on a 2.4 Ghz guest network because my “smart” Christmas lights cant connect to a network that automatically switches between a 5Ghz network and a 2.4 Ghz network, depending on the client and the distance.

    router upgrade from RT-AC87U to RT-AX3000 = (old) Tivo wifi devices no traffic

    I swapped a working (for 2-3+ years?) setup as the title/subject states in a one-for-one swap. I did NOT import the cfg file from the AC to the AX as I've seen times that messed up some settings and slowed down the AX network (not the focus in this post, just sayin').

    Trying to Understand AP Isolate

    I am having some issues connecting to a printer on my 2.4 network. I cam across a post about ap isolate which I thought was disabled per the web gui. The post had a command to run and my guess wifi shows: ap_isolate=1 which is fine as I want that separated, but when I check the main 2.4 and...

When I got a replacement, I didn't want to take a chance so had it always running with a fan. I recently upgraded to RT-AC86U and converted the old router to an...
