New Around Here
Hey Folks,

I have been reading the forum and seen that some of you had similar problems, but not exactly this: I have an AX88U as my main router and an AX58U as a node, with an exclusively wired backhaul setting (backhaul connection priority set to 1G WAN only). Nevertheless, I cannot enable the 5ghz wifi on the node, it just shows up as N/A in the settings, and as a wifi network named "ASUS" if I do a search for available networks on a computer.

Any ideas? Theoretically, dedicated wireless backhaul should not be established here, when we are talking about two dual-band routers...

Thanks in advance!
