I'm not sure where you are located, but I wonder if the wifi country settings are the same?So got my replacement AX88U rev A1.1 made in china with firmware 220.127.116.11.384
Updated to newest firmware and can say it is waaaay better now, no problem reaching out to the garage with 2,4ghz now. Seems like it was a faulty unit.
Regardless of where the hardware is manufactured, the router capabilities are territory specific. So, for example, a router designated for the UK will have different channels available to use and signal strength specs than a router designated for another country and so on.UK here.
On a sticker, mine says made in China. I didn't know there was any other reference to country?
Have a look into the German and UK wireless radio specs to see if they're different. Perhaps they're the same standard, or the retailer you bought the unit from isn't procuring or supplying UK models. Just as a guess.Mine also says
DE (DE/963) GERMANY
Shouldn't it be set to the UK in my case?
No. "DE" is commonly used to as an alternative to "EU" as theoretically WiFi regulations are harmonised throughout the EU countries. Otherwise Asus would have to make individual models for every single EU country (at additional expense) for no good reason.Shouldn't it be set to the UK in my case?
