Perhaps u can try side by side first? See if the green switches to cyan? If it doesnt then perhaps it is a wiring issue. Ive set up two other Trios in other homes and dont have any issues too.

Hello guys, is anyone facing an issue whereby Lyra Trio master unit, doing a speedtest through LAN port, and only get speeds locked at 300+Mbps speeds?

I tried my older router AC68u, did a speedtest through LAN and got 800+Mbps.


I have a 1Gbps fiber connection. Is it my Lyra that has problems? Or is there a hidden setting?

Thanks!

If you reset and re config, does the speed return to normal ? You can also switch one of the nodes to act as the master unit to test if it could be a faulty unit.

Double check to see if there is a double NAT.
Then try disabling AiProtection.

Hi Maylyn, iMovies,

With the help from a Asus staff who is also my ex-collegue, I managed to get it up and working.. I would like to share what we have done.

First, set up all the 3 Trio nodes as usual over wireless backhaul using Lyra App.
This is can be done at one location. No need to position the nodes far away..
All 3 nodes should display Solid Cyan after a while.


Second, leave all the 3 nodes power on, use Lyra App to configure the nodes to AP mode. Since the 3 nodes works like a single device with single ssid, all 3 nodes will be configured to AP mode at one go.

Third, power off all the nodes and:
- Remove the existing cable connecting the switch and WAN port of node 1 and connect it to LAN port of node 1
- Deploy node 2 to actual location and connect cable from Ethernet point to LAN port of node 2
- Deploy node 3 to actual location and connect cable from Ethernet point to LAN port of node 3

Lastly, power on all nodes and wait for a while until:
- Node 1 turns Solid Cyan
- Node 2 turns Solid Green
- Node 3 turns Solid Green



Now, I am getting great speeds of 100~300mbps (down) and 400~600 (up) on all the 3 units using speedtest App on my handphone


But, there is one thing Asus can improve on the Trio.
I noticed that the nodes get a little warm after a long while, especially when you are going to leave it on for 24/7.
So, I would like to suggest to Asus to:
- Deem the LED lights when there is no traffic after a certain time frame
- Reduce the wifi transmission power when is no traffic after a certain time frame
- When there is any traffic or connection, it will resume normal brightness and wifi power

"Time frame" to be configurable by user. I believe this should be able to achieve through firmware upgrades..

I think this will increase the lifespan of the device and save energy.
Just got mine today. Thanks for the guide. Works great. Ethernet backhaul for all 3. Speedtest on wifi reached 400Mbps. Auto switch node when I move around the house.

Hi all, I have just bought and installed the Asus Lyra Trio but I can't seem to find WPS button to connect wirelessly to my gadgets like wireless printer. Can't seem to find solution online too. Any kind soul could help to advise?

Guidance is much appreciated!

Don't think you can.

I believe the "pairing" button is also the "WPS" button.

ONT -> AC68U -> wired to each room lan point -> lyra node
I'm unable to connect to node 2 and node 3.
is there something i need to look out?
i have follow the instruction to switch all to AP after setup.
CYAN GREEN GREEN which is correct.

Thanks for the advice. Shall go try using the "pair" button and see if it works. Just checked on Asus website and it does indicate "1 x WPS button" for Asus Lyra Trio. Strange. https://www.asus.com/ae-en/Networkin...pecifications/

Question High memory usage?

Hi all, anyone encounter high memory usage using the device?

With reference to the enclosed screenshots, it seems the memory use is pretty high even though AiProtection has been disabled.

I also do encounter instances where the router will become "dead" i.e. connection lost for some clients.

Posting a support to Asus did not help as the reply given was pretty superficial asking user to do a factory reset which obviously is not addressing the issue, even though all the necessary logs were provided.

Any insights or advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I looked into the web page, turned off AiProtection a while back, and the speed went up to 600Mbps or so. Still unable to match AC68U's LAN speeds.

By the way, anyone here faced a weird issue like mine: I have a strong local WiFi signal from my phone to the nearest node for lyra when i'm around 0.5-2m away. I do a speedtest, I get the typical max speed, able to stream youtube all, not choppy, does not buffer.

BUT, lets say I moved away to a far corner, around 5-8m away from the same node that i'm still connected to, but behind one or two walls, it still shows maximum WiFi strength, but videos don't load, or buffers A LOT, even webpages or instagram or shopping app images don't load properly. Speedtest sometime suggests that i'm getting 0.5-3Mbps down speed, 10-15Mbps up speed.

Any idea what could be the cause? What can i do to improve that? Even though it is supposed to be "mesh" and "improves coverage", locally yes, but not to the internet world, and it is really frustrating for us to stream videos but it doesn't load.

Maybe i'll attach an image to explain my situation better, test point 2 and 3 are examples of strong signal, but videos/webpages don't load.
