Just got the AX86U. Logged in offline, and uploaded the newest firmware I had already downloaded from the site, and finished setting it up. Once I did that, and exited, I can't access the menu screen at all when I try to go back in?! Like I've tried everything, and even hard reset...and it does it again after I set it up and log out?!?!? Just times out when I type in the ip for the menu?! I even turned off ax one of my tries, setting it up and still the same issue.

Losing my mind, what am I missing?!

You know that the AX86U defaults to 192.168.50.1 and not 192.168.1.1 ? you can also try router.asus.com

I am an absolute nut job for missing that?!?!?!??!?!?!?! I didn't catch that ip change or even look to see that. YIKES. Years of putting the same in will do that to you. When I put in the og IP, it let me into the menu initially but after that and the ssid update or whatever, it wouldn't let me.

Thank you @BreakingDad I will try that and see.

Well, I reset it twice...3rd time may be a charm

Essentially I was able to log on originally with the og ip. Then after I got in updated, and changed a couple things when it kicks you off...I then once reconnected had access to the web, but could not use the same ip to get back into the menu.

Good lord, I am blind. That was it, freakn different IP...lol. Sorry guys and thanks for the assist!!!! This AX86U is bonkers awesome and no issues with the combo wpa 2 and 3 settings across all.

I manually set dns, locked in least interferenced channels. Made sure all was green on scan... I haven't messed with qos, not sure if it's worth it? Any newer stuff to look at setting wise?

Thanks all

Depends what you want to do with your network, and how much you enjoy breaking your router and fixing it :) Personally I use Merlin Firmware, Flex QOS, and Skynet. Settings loosely based on @L&LD guide Merlin Setup . If you want skynet etc, follow THIS guide.
