[Maylyn - Networking] ASUS Lyra Trio - Corner to Corner WiFi

ASUS Lyra Trio

Introducing a new brand ASUS Lyra Trio - a more affordable, sleeker and easier to deploy ASUS MESH WiFi system together with the new brand 3x3 internal antenna design for the masses.

Nevertheless ASUS isn't scrimped on it's performance and features either, what ASUS Lyra has to offer are almost identical what one can find on ASUS Lyra Trio.

Let's find out ^^

Product was announced @ CES 2018

ASUS Lyra Trio was first announced during CES 2018 together with ASUS Lyra Voice. ASUS RT-AX88U was announced again as well.

Source ~> https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/othe...ra-mesh-family

Specification

CPU ~ Qualcomm Atheros QCA9563 @ 750MHz
Flash ~ 32MB Flash
RAM ~ 128MB RAM
WiFi ~ Qualcomm Atheros QCA9982 (3x3)
Ethernet ~ Qualcomm Atheros QCA9563
Switch ~ Qualcomm Atheros QCA8072
WAN ~ 1xGbE
LAN ~ 1xGbE

Brand new and unique 3x3 internal antenna design to better minimise interference and transmit the WiFi signals vertically and horizontally for better reception and performance in multi storey homes.



Actual Retail Packing

Do note that the retail packing might varied for different regions from what i have posted. This is provided to me from ASUS TW HQ. But the contents are the same less the power plug adapter for different countries.

Rest assured that SG version will be coming with the 3 pin plug adapters for the power adapters.

Back View



Both Rear View





Actual ASUS Lyra Trio



Comes with 1xGbE LAN and 1xGbE WAN/LAN



Accessories (Power adapters and power plug adapters)

Setting Up

Setting up is easy and simple like 1-2-3, just download the ASUS Lyra App either from Apple Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android) respectively and use it to do the setup.

Using the ASUS Lyra App to setup accordingly

Final setup done on the main ASUS Lyra Trio Node



ASUS Lyra Trio LED is more subtle as compared to ASUS Lyra IMO.

What are some of the differences between ASUS Lyra and ASUS Lyra Trio?

There are some distinct differences between ASUS Lyra and ASUS Lyra Trio, besides different Qualcomm CPU/hardware specs aside.

Let me list down some.

ASUS Lyra

1). QCA IPQ4019 770MHz quad core
2). 128MB Flash
3). 256MB RAM
4). 7 smart internal design with dedicated wireless backhaul
5). Full AiProtection (Malicious Sites Blocking, Two-Way IPS and Infected Device Prevention and Blocking)
6). Adaptive QOS
7). Traffic Analyser



ASUS Lyra Trio

1). Qualcomm Atheros QCA9563 @ 750MHz
2). 32MB Flash
3). 128MB RAM
4). 3x3 internal antenna design
5). AiProtection Classic (Malicious Sites Blocking, No Two-Way IPS and Infected Device Prevention and Blocking)
6). No Adaptive QOS
7). No Traffic Analyser





ASUS Lyra Trio does support Ethernet Backhaul for max WiFi performance if one needs to utilise it same as ASUS Lyra.

One can find tons of useful information regarding the ASUS Lyra Trio @ ASUS Knowledge FAQ.

Setting up the remaining 2x nodes are all done up via Wireless Backhaul

Living Room



Kitchen



Network Map (connectivity)

This is the most ideal setup one would try to achieve, full 3 green lines of connectivity strength to provide maximum performance via Wireless Backhaul.

Of cos the best of the best will be connecting all the 3 via Ethernet Backhaul. (Please refer above on how to setup)

So placement of the individual nodes are very important.



If one encounter during adding of new node stating the connection is weak, please relocate or move the node higher etc (best there is some line of sight between all nodes)

Benching results

Main Node @ Room using Apple iPhone 7+



SpeedTest



Kitchen - Furthest node





The ASUS Lyra Trio results are attained from from choosing from sample of at least 5x SpeedTest runs @ per node location and my ASUS Lyra was turned off to prevent direct WiFi interference due to direct proximity to the ASUS Lyra Trio.

What is shown isn't the highest speed attained, there is sample run that have shown the upload speed of 515Mbps but jitter is @ a little higher of 5.3ms

For example



So overall it's pretty constant of achieving what i have posted on top 2 SpeedTest Results (average range) on my setup/environment.

The ASUS Lyra Trio is performing just a slight notch lower as compare the bigger brother ASUS Lyra IMO. Do note that the more hops from the main node will impact on the performance speed nevertheless does one needs 500Mbps+ download speed to stream/surf whatsoever stuff to their WiFi devices?

Better coverage = still able to be connected to the Internet than spotty or no connection to the Internet right?

LED Colour Status table



Is it possible to add the ASUS Lyra Trio to one's existing ASUS Lyra network?

Yes, it's possible to add the ASUS Lyra Trio to one's existing ASUS Lyra network whether on wireless or Ethernet backhaul.

One needs to make sure all the ASUS Lyra's and ASUS Lyra Trio's firmware are up to date. (latest firmware)

But it doesn't work in other way around.
ASUS Lyra Trio (main) ~> ASUS Lyra, or ASUS Lyra Trio (main) ~> ASUS Lyra Trio ~> ASUS Lyra etc.

the download speed test result on main node isn't attractive.

Hi, I need some help with setting up of Asus Lyra Trio which I bought from IT show yesterday. I have the following questions below:

Firstly, my home is connected with Cat-6 LAN cable from the fibre point to all the rooms and I want to connect the Lyra Trio x 3 to the LAN point in each room which supposedly to get full speed everywhere.


Q1 : Out of the 3 devices, is there a predetermined device which I have to setup as the first device? I cannot find a differences between the 3 devices in the box

Q2 : What is the correct method for setting up the second and third device? What I have done are as follows:
- Connect 1st device's WAN port to a router. Use the App to setup. This is easy
- Connect 2nd device's WAN port to the LAN port of the 1st device. Power ON and use the App to add the 2nd device
- Connect 3rd device's WAN Port to the LAN port of the 2nd device. Power ON and use the App to add the 3rd device
- After finished, I connect each of the device to the LAN port in each room
Are the above steps correct?

Q3 : I have some how managed to get it working but I am not if is correct. I am getting 2 devices with Cyan LED and one device with Green LED. From my guest, I think Green LED is correct but I am not able to find any manual from Asus website talking about this.

Q4 : I am able to get the follows speed
- up to 300-400mbps when I am near to the first device
- up to 300-400mbps when I am near to the device with Green LED
- up to 50mbps when I am near the device with Cyan LED
Is this correct?

Not answering your question but why did you choose a mesh system when your house already has ethernet cabling?
