Hi peeps, I’m know best nothing regarding Aimesh. I recently upgraded from the AC5300 to an AXE16000. I am running both on the most recent Merlín firmware. I have tried setting the 5300 as a slave but it doesn’t connect. I think I even tried hard wiring the two and it still didn’t pick up the 5300.

Are they comparable to work together?

Thanks.

They should work OK but the AC5300 may limit the performance of the AXe16000. Also best to run Asus factory firmware on the AiMesh node, your AC5300
 
Thanks for that. I’ll try it that way.

I was thinking of using a ethernet to home plug, both ends for the back haul hoping it’s faster than WiFi between.
 
Had a play about today and got the AC5300 in a aimesh as a node. I reset back to factory and removed Merlín.

I’m also running through a switch and a set of home plugs and still sees a gigabit back haul 😬 thanks.
