That is exactly what I am looking for. More features/settings to take advantage of the hardware performance. I feel with Linksys while the hardware is there. It’s hampered by lackluster firmware that does not take advantage of the hardware. At the same time. I was willing to sacrifice some of that with Linksys again only if it was a benefit having a parent WiFi 6E node and child node. Since I already own the MX5300. I am getting the impression you would go with the single unit Asus over the dual Linksys setup? This would also be my first Asus router. I have only owned Linksys routers.What's wrong with your existing setup?
The ASUS has many more features/settings than the Linksys. So if you need that, the ASUS is a better choice as your root node/main router.
That depends on the device. As long as you have an AP mode, the WAN port should be fine for most devices, but you really need to check the manual, as not all routers work the same in AP mode.Please bare with me I need to make sure I set this up right.
modem-Parent node-Switch-Child node
Is that correct? I have one of the switch ports connected to the internet port with child node. Or does it need to be a lan port instead same child node?
