Try another reset – it did eventually work for me. With the Asus we are seeing a number of connection drops daily. Appreciate your thoughts. So here is my question… Recognizing this is now a user support forum… I bought these because I’ve been a long time ASUS fan due to it’s heavy customization abilities until the Lyra. First, your Wi-Fi 5 client has to support that speeds, so they have to be 3×3 or 4×4 clients (not 2×2). Thanks. Where do I find the option to schedule restarts for the routers? Had to disable using telnet. I’ll continue to let computer with Intel modem runs a few days connected to the node. 2. I even called the Verizon tech support and they did not have a clue (or logs) of why my router is disconnected to the ONT. I’ve turned off the ‘Hide SSID’ option but still not appearing, interestingly there is a network being shown that’s strong but says unknown, when trying to join it asks for SSID so have tried adding both the names for the 2.4ghz and 5ghz but gives error of not recognised. Good tip, thanks for sharing, Dan. Have all phones with wifi 6. Thanks for your help. Take your time and really read them. Not worried about sharing gigabit port on primary router since virtually all of my high bandwidth traffic is between wired hosts on switch which will remain local to switch and never see the router port. But the connection speed between a pair is always that of the slower party. But otherwise, the Asus system appears fastest overall? To update on my previous request; I found the solution on DFS channel thorugh this article of yours > https://dongknows.com/how-to-fix-wi-fi-dropping-and-disconnection-issues/. Instantly my WiFi speeds increased to 500mbs plus on my OnePlus 8 Pro after your suggestion to expose the WiFi6 WiFi network. I live in a 3 bedroom condo where the rooms are next to each other in a line. They’d both be wired. Yes, it’s fair, Jamie. When I added XT8 as nodes, both nodes got connected to AX11000 is ‘star’ format. (1500 sq ft) Or if there is another that I should consider? could I use them as additional mesh nodes in different room? setup that will better dedicate or setup the backhaul? 2. Not that I have a lot of WiFi 6 devices, but because the wireless backhaul is very powerful (4800Mbit). I am going to use it as wirless setup. My hope is that the XT8 has enough power to punch through obstructions and serve the master bedroom with no issue. . My understanding is the main router uses a Broadcom BCM6755 chip which supports 2×2 20/40/80 MHz channels. And I suggested that plus some other tips in this post, too. Other than customizing your Wi-Fi network’s name and password. I’ve had zero issue since I opened up the 5G-2 network, turned on smart connect for 2.4G and 5G-1, and only have WiFi 6 devices on the 5G-2 network. Cheers! I forget which. I have just bought ASUS XT8 AX6600 Mesh Wifi Router. Hi, as Martin suggested a reset on both units magically worked for me too, having had the mysterious yellow light that isn’t in the instructions. To upgrade Apple Extreme routers (X 3) I am now leaning more to an AX89X and 1 pack of ZenWifi AX (as opposed to 2 packs) using the ethernet backbone. Generally, you need to know a bit about data sharing etc via a network. So, the only time you truly benefit from the multi-gig Wi-Fi speeds is when you have a multi-gig WAN connection, and the clients connect directly to the router. Thanks! Will continue to monitor. The RT-AX88U will work fine with any other AiMesh routers (and vice versa.) Do i directly plug the XT8 to the internet wall socket and take the exsisting Archer VR1600V out? By the way, I’ve never used more than two VPN clients at a time. Do not buy this stuff. it looks like there are some additions to the modulation scheme and the OFDMA and MU-MIMO. My suspicion is that there is a bug in OpenVPN being exploited remotely. That’s why ethernet backhaul is key for me. It seems like schematically I should use AP mode as I have ISP router in between. Speedtest WiFi connected to the Asus Node via wired backhaul: https://www.speedtest.net/result/10506486371 – Is Apple advising Netgear on Pricing? The AX6100 two pack is a fair bit cheaper. QoS cannot be activated (not even to test it). Same concept, different implementations? the system is getting bogged down and we are getting slow speeds. The last firmware 25524 resolved all issues and system is super stable now. Both ASUS and Verizon support said would need to set up as a bridge that way Verizon would be used to support FIOS TV functionality. Option 2: Do the same as above, but get the AX86U instead when it comes out (any idea when this might be or when you’ll review it?). Yes, that will totally work, Ian. I also changed my laptop clients to Wifi 6 buying Intel AX200 cards. Thanks for the input, Leo! Am I overthinking this? One question… I wanted to use the AX8s in wifi 6 mode with AiMesh, and connect an older Wifi 5 dual band asus router via wired connection to also use as a node in the AiMesh network… Do you know if this Is this possible considering i want to use the AX8s in WIFI 6 for both backhaul and for clients… or would i have to “downgrade” the backhaul (and therefore client wifi on AX8 as well?) . How ever as everyone started WFH, my ISP got unstable on the upload. At the ROG I get 850 Mbps down / 600 Mbps up over wireless on my cell phone. Some of the dual band mesh systems you’ve reviewed seem to have sometimes a higher 5Ghz channel (Wifi 5), but lack the backhaul, and the Triband systems seem to have a great backhaul and a lower Wifi 5 client channel speed. 2. My way of testing, it’s limited by the router’s Gigabit port. Not the most important thing as it’s unlikely I will need or use full speed anyway! These devices are a mix of Windows laptops, Chromebooks, iPhones, Android phones, Google Nest Hub’s… it’s basically everything in my house which is unstable. usually when this notebook connected to the node it will cause probelms within hours. Update it to the latest firmware, Tom. Question for the other commenters here is: has anyone enabled OpenVPN and noticed any problem with it? Here is my setup: I am really enjoying your reviews. I should mention that I’ve tried both tri-band smart connect and 5GHz smart connect, and neither one seems to use the second 5GHz. Funny thing is, my son intel ax200 WiFi card has no issue. Asus ZenWiFi AX XT8 reviews, pros and cons, Amazon price history. That said, even though not necessary, it’s a good idea to use a network cable to connect the two hardware units. 2020/06/1172.28 MBytes Excelente! Thanks for that, sounds like I will stop waiting for Amplifi to deliver the Alien down under (if ever) ! They are lucky that I don’t have the ability to get the Alien quickly or I would have at least given that a go. Better but not much better. By the way, I love that WRT300AC. Found another hiccup. Mine come tomorrow, paid $199 Canadian dollars for a2 pack: https://amzn.to/3fNEvPi. Installed it just before sleep. By the way, I know it doesn’t have it today, but is the XT8 capable of getting link aggregation with a firmware update?. The restart takes about a minute. 2020/06/0472.27 MBytes Asus told me that it has enabled that already on the ZenWiFi line. But the Wi-Fi 5 client speed seems a little disappointing. Forum Members: 133,190. If my research is accurate, ASUS released a WiFi 6 mesh router just a few months after they released their first WiFi 6 standalone router. Bernie. I haven’t a clue if some of the devices would work with it or not, I know our phones will and the windows laptops I’m sure, but the other stuff I haven’t a clue. But if there’s more, you can send it to me via a message in the About menu at top of the site, and I’ll update that post for you. . I personally don’t use the Guest network.

Hey Robert, Les participants reconnaissent les règles suivantes (notamment ce qui est indiqué au point 10 : « Accord » par le biais de leur participation : 1. Thanks again for the great review. Else, you can just ignore it. Seems the only solution is resetting the modem and routers. The Asus ZenWiFi AX (XT8) is a whole home Wi-Fi 6 mesh system equipped with the latest 802.11ax hardware. We all need/use the network during the day so again this tosses a wrench into trouble shooting during the day. I was looking at the AX92U units but then I stumbled across these Zen XT8’s. Hi Dong, Read your reviews on ASUS line of routers specifically Zen, GT-AX11000 etc. Technical, yes. I’ve been running the XT8 mesh set up for about a month and a half with no issues. I’m wondering, for those who are having issues, what is different from my setup that allows me to not have the same problems you all exhibit. The XT8 has Wi-Fi 6 on BOTH of its 5GHz bands. Is there a way to make sure the XT8 node (connected with a cat 6 cable) use that connection instead of the wireless backhaul? Also, I did not see the “wired backhaul” option in GT-AX11000 and I am guessing that it will show up once I change it to AiMesh mode along with adding the nodes and removing Smart Connect. Can you comment on my particular setup with the AX88U as my router and whether you see any benefits in doing with the XT8 over the cheaper AX92U? A theoretical question about AiMesh. So that one is good. Still, it’s nice to have the option to have a 5GHz band working for high-speed clients. Our Comcast VOIP has a separate router w/ wifi disabled, so I’m not bothering to mess w/ the Asus settings w.r.t. As for how many active clients at the same time, that depends on how fast the speed you want at each of them. Thank you for all the of very helpful information in your reviews; I have an GT-AC5300 as my main router, and am looking to create an AiMesh network by adding 2 nodes. I’m currently using 2x Google WiFi with powerline backhaul in my 1300 sq ft apartment with brick inner walls, and the pucks fail to maintains the connections on the Gbps fiber. But generally, update the hardware to the latest firmware and set it up from scratch. Thanks for sharing, Wil. I saw that it is set to “Auto” by default. Sorry Dong – I must have misinterpreted your article. Not much of gaming happening here. Next morning, all devices function normally. Previously I was using that for my iPhone and my desktop PC, both of which are AX devices. 2. That said, for your home, you can get the GT-AX11000 and a 2-pack XT8. GT-AX11000 + RT-AX92U. – Improved node connection stability Would it be appropriate to use the AX88u as the main router for an AImesh setup? I used the Asus Router app to set the XT8 up, just using out of the box settings. My original setup that I couldn’t find network on my work laptop on is 140MBps with an ISP in the UK of EE. The idea here is if you have multiple devices, it’ll have more bandwidth. That said, I ended up with Netgear’s AX6000 solution because two nodes (router/satellite) accomplished what the Asus ZenWiFi couldn’t do with four nodes – good coverage and high speed in all locations. I have the Tp Link 2000 Mbps which I have been using for tv stuff effectively. if you are running 25513 you won’t get the notification until you downgrade to 25509. thanks Steve, i was looking for the actual file, it doesn’t show on the US Asus website. I’m finally getting a the ASUS ZenWifi AX system but wonder, can I extend the system by adding on my old Mac AirPort Extreme (last generation) or Mac Airport express? I’d stay away from Google/Amazon mesh systems. There are shed fulls of settings, and knowing what best to set everything to would be good! Default was it Aggressive mode … but after changed it in normal mode. House is about 2800sf. I purchased two nodes to use in conjunction with my Verizon router/modem only to find out that they are not compatible. Also, use a simple Wi-Fi name and password for your IoTs. If the Netgear Orbi is more of a hub and spoke model, I am guessing that anything beyond 2 nodes, where the “main” Orbi is at one end of a house would be inferior to using a different brand’s mesh system? I originally had it connected to the slave node at my desk area where that node is. I got this router about a week ago. Also, the easiest way to “hack” a device of this type is to use its default user name and password (like admin/admin etc.) I tested all my Cat 6 connections and connected a line directly to the modem and a laptop when it is down and I get no signal. The AX88U has a gaming section, and that works fine, Carl. But the speed on your tests shows the Asus outperforming? More on that here. Fiche technique Asus ZenWiFi AX (XT8) Normes reconnues en réseau sans fil Wi-Fi 802.11 n/ac, Wi-Fi 802.11b, Wi-Fi 802.11g, Wi-Fi 6 On my second Aimesh upstrairs, I have some problems with connecting macbook air 2020, it does not received an IP number from the DHCP. A crude approach would be to turn off the Guest 2.4 GHz signal, then see which devices continue to operate. Do you remember when I asked you if I can choose between Zenwifi and Orbi 852. Firstly, I cannot seem to find the two pack for sale anywhere at the moment but I could buy two single devices (for a similar price). As I said, this also happens with nodes that have ethernet backhaul (currently 3 of 4). wondering if I need to tweek some settings? @ John – See my other comments and feedback in the comments section under the name “Rocky”. Read the manual, but can’t tell: can you configure this as a fallback WAN interconnect in case the primary wired WAN connection fails, or can it only be used as a primary WAN interconnect (or on simultaneously with the primary WAN wired interconnect). Search This Thread. So hopefully this new one incorporates the best of 25513 and some other goodies. Phenomenal content on this site. I’ve stepped through disabling every single advanced function, eventually getting to running 2 separate networks (5ghz, 2.4ghz), and using wired backhaul, and nothing seems to fix the issue. The Asus ZenWifi AX Mini, a new 3-piece mesh router that supports Wi-Fi 6. I have a question similar to one above. I would be interested as well. @Joe I’m starting to feel the same way. Would an AI Mesh router and 1 X 2 pack be a better outcome ?? In doing all this my 2nd node now has a weak signal, I’ve taken it out of network and added again and still the same, this is with boxes next to each other. I combine it with the Netgear nighthawk modem that just came out to capture an extra 200 Mbps from Xfinity and my kids are happy as pie. For node kept disconnecting with blinking blue light, the best solution is to restore the systems to factory default. So you have external cables? But a pair of the RT-AX88U will work, too, and will work great if you have wired backhaul. I would put the primary centrally located on the first floor and the secondary in the master bedroom, hardwired backhaul, and still potentially have the old AC bridges in place. I feel like I need a third node in the basement. @Rob, Something is seriously wrong there, Charles. My question is should I buy 2-3 2 packs of the XT8 (total of 4-6 nodes including the router) or get the AX11000 with 1-2 sets of XT8? That depends on how you add it to the system and what your expectations are. However, even if that works, chances are your network will be fragmented. It may not display this or other websites correctly. You can only hard-reset everything and reconfigure everything from 0. Unfortunately I can’t change network adapters as it’s all locked down, I’m only in this job for 3 more weeks so think I will just cope with wired network for now. That unknown one is the backhaul band, Andy. All Asus routers have that wording in their interface, but all AX routers, including the RT-AX89X, I’ve tested, with the latest firmware, worked fine with SMBv1 turned off. That’s odd. I’ve even disconnected as many electronics in the area around the two units that I can still maintain a working household with, but it still refuses to keep the backhaul stable…. I have 4x 4k TVs, two laptops, one tablet, about 25 IoT devices, 3 smartphones, 4 Apple TVs and an Xbox console. I am seeing higher throughputs on 5-2 vs 5-1. Just picked up a pair of XT8s and an extra single unit XT8. It’s just a very slow process and you may need to refresh the app a few times. Also, can our current Netgear AC1900 combo modem/router be used in any way with Orbi or Zen Wifi to provide more wired connections (or for any other purpose on the new network)? 1. Get a dual-band mesh instead, Patrick, considering you have wired backhaul. Does anyone know how many device connections the XT8 system is rated for? I’d go with an extra ZenWiFi set. I have exactly the same experience and would like to be sure that this does not work. I applied the update and everything is working fine, but I’d like to know what changed and if others are having luck with this update, too. I’ve tried messing around with the settings, almost tried all of the channels, but unable to get my devices any faster. Unfortunately my house is not hardwired for CAT 5 or 6 (yet). After reading a lot of your reviews and advice I decide my best bang for buck was to install an ethernet cat 6 backbone which has been money very well spent without changing my routers etc. Hi Dong, thank you so much for the thorough review! I followed these steps I found online: https://www.snbforums.com/threads/rt-ac3200-wont-let-me-disable-qos-in-the-gui-is-there-a-line-command.57346/, Was imposible from web interface Dong. P.s. Thanks Dong. I had success turning off the QoS from the phone app and did not have to resort going through Telnet or SSH. I had to use telnet. I tried to reset but can’t seem to get that to work. I also recommend using its web interface first and the Asus Router app as a supplement. So, I called Xfinity and they said they were shipping one out, but I have no faith they understood what I needed. And yes, you can and should run cables outside your home like that. 2. When this happens I can no longer access the wireless network. For your situation, I’d recommend getting an RT-AC86U as the main router and then getting the Lyra Trio (not Lyra) as nodes. Highest package offers 910Mbps download. Using the GT-AX11000 as the main router and the RT-AX92U as node(s) is a great setup, Sandeep. I’ve looked at the GT-AX11000 (which you suggested previously), but it’s unavailable everywhere (I’m in Canada). go into the administrative settings –> Firmware Update Tab, and at the top of the screen (it may be visible from other screens as well) there is a yellow exclamation point icon. No. . You’ll find it here, Mark: Administration (menu)-> System (tab)-> Enable Reboot Scheduler. I used the Asus Router app to set the XT8 up, just using out of the box settings. Wondering what I can do to get the 4×4 5GHz-2 radio to get used more to share the load. Thanks for the help so far and hoping the only issue left is the external drive. GT-AX11000 is perhaps a decent choice and adding nodes later once the firmware becomes more stable. The 5.1 band is supposed to give maximum speed. You can click on the device on the network map and choose to bind the IP to its MAC. I am getting about 200Mbps according to Ookla Speedtest with my Google Pixel 2 and my Asus Chromebook and only about 111Mbps with my Asus ROG Laptop (all fairness the laptop is about 10yrs old). I’m only considering it because I’ve run into issues in the past though not as of yet with this router. More on AiMesh here. Great review! What is the added value of using a 3-unit setup? Thanks Dong, I had a go with the backhaul advice but it still gave error message of unable to connect so have turned the dedicated backhaul back on. 3) Are there any specific steps I need to do to activate a Backhaul ? For background, this Asus XT8 replaced an Orbi RBK50 Mesh WiFi System that I am handing down to a family member for their new house. 1) Should I go ahead and enable SmartConnect ? If I can’t stabilize in the next few days, it’s being returned and I’ll go with a less performant option such as an Orbi or Google Wifi. Carmine. I found one glitch, though. User #179 2102 posts. • ❄️ Happy Holidays! I need to switch of the Aimesh router upstairs, and switch it back on than it works. Also, check the cables. So hopefully I can get to the bottom of things. I just didn’t enable anything in the QoS tab (Bandwidth Monitor, QoS, Web History). The whole house is wired with Cat6 cable. I’m upgrading from a 3 pod Orbi RBK53 system to WiFi6 and purchased the ASUS ZenWifi XT8 2 pack. Obviously there are multiple limiting factors, but assuming my Uplink and Downlink speeds from the router to the internet are not the limiting factor (because of fiber 1Gbit internet), what speed could I reasonably expect? I don’t want to rebuild my network with every update. The UI has all the features I want. What I need is reliability. I can continue to use the office wireless bridge router and then use the old primary router in bridge mode on the family room entertainment center as a “wired” connection without having to run any cables or lose any bandwidth, and the two bridges would not interfere with any other wireless clients on the other 5Ghz band. Do you recommend Option A then? 1. Personally, I use a few Asus routers in a mixed AiMesh system. The RT-Ac3100, by the way, is an excellent router. Many mesh routers don’t support 160MHz channel width for end-users. and that would be better than buying the zenwifi? Thanks for any assistance you can provide and sorry for the novel…. But you can start out with the Lyra Trio alone. If not, check out this post first. You can find more information in this post. I have been waiting for a good replacement since my Comcast ISP speed has increased from 100mbit to 200mbit and I am getting around 120mbit wired or wireless. I’ve looked for commonalities, such as the same loads, same users on at that same time and I can’t find it. That’s disappointing. Jun 24 02:06:05 wlceventd: wlceventd_proc_event(461): eth5: Deauth_ind 46:32:9F:FD:6E:AC, status: 0, reason: Deauthenticated because sending station is leaving (or has left) IBSS or ESS (3) For a house where the internet comes in at one end, and you need to get internet to the other end, I think other systems which actually mesh like a lattice would perform better. It seems like the Default connection mode in ZenWifi is neither which is Wireless Router Mode. I did reset my modem on Wednesday as I tried to add in a MoCa network (that was a failure), but the router and mesh nodes never went down. I know the similarly priced Orbi AX4200 will live slightly lower specs, but I can’t get myself to spend $699 for the AX6000 version. Get the rt-Ax88u and use a cable to connect it to your ac68u. I understand about the Wi-Fi 6 and gigabit, but I have seen some great improvements, going from ~300-500Mbps on AC to ~600-800Mbps using Wi-Fi 6, which is good enough for me. Are these separate tests? Great idea! I’d recommend you read this post in its entirety. From mesh, connected via ethernet, I get the same. The XT8 will work for you, Terra, and you’ll get the option to have a separate 5GHz network for high-speed devices. Just wanted to say thank you to your reviews and recommendations. Joining in 327 Views Message 1 of 5 Flag for a moderator. I am clearly out of my depth. Of course, make sure you use it with the latest firmware. My take is there was a built-in threadhold of speed in Mbps where a client should consider switching. Thank you for the article. I Did JavaScript is disabled. Both are tri-band so suitable to use with wirless backhaul if one of the nodes is wired to the main router. It does not stay on for more than 30 seconds before blinking blue again. Update AMD AM4 AGESA V2 PI 1.1.0.0 Patch C 2. Way to go! Your help again would be very much appreciated. The deal is Guest network will eventually be supported. No VLANs or multiple SSIDs, but you have one SSID plus a Guest network for each band which can be configured to work as a regular SSID. So far so good (hope I haven’t jinxed it). Also, the latest firmware is not the one that opens up the higher speeds for clients. Can you advise any alternative main router to complement my two XT8 as nodes. I was all giddy when I saw the firmware update thinking *maybe* it would have the 160 Mhz front haul but it doesn’t appear to have. Unlike some on here, I have had no trouble with mine. The home is wired with CAT6 in each room, making wired backhaul easy to connect. Warren. Asus XT8 advanced settings. What’s the best option XT8 or Netgear Orbi RBK852? However it lacked configurability for me. I believe this will help many. The Asus supports WPA3 fine, Flippo. Other option is to reset both and have them in the same room.
