ASUS ZenWifi Mesh - ping slowdown after period


New Around Here

I am wondering if anyone can advise on things I can try. I recently purchased three ASUS ZenWiFi AX (XT8)s to set-up a mesh in my home, upgrading from a Deco M5. It has been connected to Virgin Fibre and seems to work pretty well. However, occasionally I have noticed the typical ping replies spike and stay at an elevated level (sometimes with intermittent timeouts) and the only way for me to get it back again is to reboot the router. I have tried pinging from various devices and the pings were against the LAN IP after originally spotting when pinging to So I am assuming it is an internal issue rather than anything to do with my provider or subsequent route to remote sites.

Any suggestions would really be welcome. I haven't changed any of the default settings on the devices except for getting them working as per set-up.

Thanks in advance,

It could be something on your network.

I had that with our mesh and tracked it down to a phone running WiFi Analyzer, it effected every device on that node.
