    ASUS have kindly given myself access to the first beta for the DSL-AC68U to now act as a Child/Node within an Aimesh configuration.

    ‘Note: this is a beta so normal beta T@C’s apply’

    DSL-AC68U/R beta firmware that could support setup as AiMesh RE(child) node now finally available. Feel free to share on your forum.

    In order to setup as RE node, reset to default is a must. Then could setup via target WiFi router(AiMesh CAP)’s Web UI or via ASUS Router app.

    Feel free to post comments via this forum and I can pass them back to ASUS – there is a dedicated Topic below.
