mixing firmware (stock and merlin) in the same mesh network?


New Around Here
is it possible to have different nodes/AP with different firmware in the same mesh network, assuming all nodes and AP are running mesh 2.0?


Part of the Furniture
Yes, possible. Anything is!

Recommended? No. At least not for AiMesh stability and performance.

AP's could care less (when not in an AiMesh setup).


Occasional Visitor
It is possible for sure. I am currently running it on one node because of issues I faced with the RT-3100 model. I have my AX88U and 68U models on merlins firmware and the 3100 on the beta version that was released today. The 3100 on Alpha 4 is having issues with AiMesh 2.0. Once that's cleared up, then I will put it back onto merlins firmware.

In both replies above, the configuration is Base Router:Merlin and the Nodes:stock Asus.

I have tried with Base:stock Asus and Nodes:Merlin but the base router (stock Asus) failed to join the nodes (Merlin).

I will switch it around and test . Thanks for the confirmation.
