I bought an ASUS RT-AC88U and my old router ASUS RT-AC86U and I configured Aimesh.
Both routers have official Asus firmware.

ASUS RT-AC88U (master) ( (
ASUS RT-AC86U (node) ( (

I've noticed sometimes the node is offline, and after a few seconds/minutes come back. I was thinking was the UI showing the incorrect status of the node, but I checked with a simple ping and I have packet loss.

--- ping statistics ---
15384 packets transmitted, 15335 received, 0.318513% packet loss, time 15990ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.653/2.331/1103.978/15.393 ms, pipe 2
I executed the ping from a raspberry PI 4 connected via ethernet to the node router and doing a ping to the master.

Someone else is facing this issue? my only custom configuration was fixed the channels for 2.4Ghz (channel 1 - 20-40Mhz) and 5Ghz (channel 36 - 80Mhz)
