    Decided to splash out on a RT-AX88U (connected to HG612 3B). Superb performance from the router but still to try out Wifi6 (phone and laptop support natively).

    The RT-AC88U I tried to connect as an AiMesh Node but it wanted 192.168.1.1 on boot (same as RT-AX88U)… can’t be a*sed for the rest of the day. May look into tomorrow when the natives are all sleeping and no moaning about no internet….

    First factory reset Aimesh-Node, then it should work. Before save config to go back easily like it is right now just in case.

    I suppose you still have it configured as master like new one.

    The RT-AX88U arrived quickly, are / have you flashed the any of your two routers with ASUSWRT-Merlin firmware ?

    Families and Internet access, especially during lockdown

    Yep, both on latest Merlin. The RT-AX88U was on 192.168.50.1 out of the box (factory). Couldn’t find it initially.

    I run PiHole on a Linux Mint machine as DHCP/DNS which makes swapping out routers fairly quick – and no ads on the network to boot.

    Yes RTFM, they use different default IP on newer routers 50.1 instead of 1.1 on older routers. You find it in manual and help.

    RTFM indeed

    Didn’t notice the downstream router should be using the WAN port, doh!
