What's the consensus on whether to use Merlin or stock firmware for AI mesh client?

main: 86u
client: 68u

I use Merlin on both of mine and it works very good.

If you do not need Merlins added features, use the stock Asus.

not only added features, but also enhancements and fixing some of the known issues and limitations

I would think that standardizing on Asuswrt-Merlin across all nodes would ensure similar/compatible Asuswrt components, if this matters. I believe AiMesh is closed-source within Asuswrt-Merlin.

Since using a mesh setup several months ago, I've kept both the AC86U router and AC68U node on the same Merlin versions, so currently both are on 348.19, without any issues.

thanks everyone. as far as I understand, there's no way to access the node webui once it becomes an aimesh node right?

Whatever you choose, it should be the same firmware 'flavor' for both.

RMerlin firmware is still the one I would suggest though. More performance, fixes, options (even if you don't use them today), and better stability too.

Post 8 question: Not yet. :)
