The idea that 5g-2 is used as backhaul to provide the aimesh node with a signal that as "clean" as possible.

While you can still connect your other devices to that signal, it means your aimesh node is now sharing bandwidth with other devices.

Ideally you want everything else on the 2.4 and 5g-1 to keep 5g-2 optimal for aimesh nodes.
I see. Thanks for the info. in this case should i turn off 5g-2 or hide the ssid to prevent other devices from connecting to 5g-2 ?

The Asus RT-AC86U is one of the best all-around routers. It has all the latest features, including extra security. This router should maximize your bandwidth and keep your home network running smoothly.

Don't key in the password for 5g-2 on your device loh...

Turning it off, then your aimesh node how ?

Oh I see.. then in that case, it should not impact your aimesh node unless the LAN connection goes down.

Can I check what is everyone's wireless speed obtained using speedtest?

I'm using PCE-88 on my desktop, but max i'm only getting 350DL 350UL speeds no matter which position.

Hey, I just got a second RT-AC5300 to use as aimesh with my existing RT-AC5300 and I'm curious how come this one has rubber washers on the parts where the router antennae screw onto. Do any of you guys have that on your AC5300 too?

Getting really frustrated with my home network setup. I have an issue that pops up from time to time where the speeds of every other device gets throttled like crazy when the TV is switched on and in use. It's an LG TV connected through Ethernet. Ridiculous thing is that the TV is only 100Mbps port, yet it messes everything up. Anyone else experiencing this? I don't want to use QoS as Charlie_Zhan and other experts have said that's for people with low bandwidth, and since this is a 1Gbps plan, that shouldn't be necessary. Moreover, using QoS turns off hardware acceleration, so that's no good.

Hi kira.yiktah,

That's the revised version for RT-AC5300 for the antenna to stay in place when tightened.

Regards Wayne
