    Has anybody tried the wired backhaul setup. I am happy to try as long as I get some guidance on how to do it!

    As far as I was aware, Wired backhaul (Primary to Node) for AiMesh was not yet implemented for DSL-AC68U acting as RE (Node),  I can ask ASUS if you wish for clarity and guidance ?

    Edit: I have dropped the ASUS team an email asking if the DSL-AC68U supports AiMesh Ethernet backhaul

    Ok. so spoke with ASUS and the DSL-AC68U does not support wired backhaul when configured as a AiMesh (RE – Node)  as it does not have a dedicated Ethernet WAN port.

    @Grisu – hopefully this answers your earlier post also ?

    AiMesh Specifics (General):

    AiMesh Backhaul = (AiMesh connection between mesh routers – ‘CAP > RE’ )

    AiMesh Fronthaul = (normal wifi/ethernet connection between AiMesh routers and client devices)

    AiMesh CAP = (AiMesh Primary),

    AiMesh RE = (AiMesh Node/Child)

    not good

    Do you know why?

    I thought on RT-AC68U it should be possible to use a LAN port instead of WAN too, so it would be the same config on DSL or RT, only you loose one port for clients (then unused WAN port). Maybe I’m wrong, did never test it on RT.

    I do not know why ASUS did not choose to use a LAN port to replace WAN port for DSL-AC68U AiMesh child/node with ethernet backhaul, I assume to much extra coding and DSL-AC68U is not a priority
