antenna are expendable item. So it should be interchangeable with other antenna.
If you want original, maybe call Avertek and check.
Else just go carousell to grab similar models.

Hi, anyone can check if roaming assistant is working on their 86u? I am running the latest stock firmware and roamast doesn't seem to work for me. The 86u does not have system logs about associating and disassociating clients.

What is the purpose to set auto reboot?

Sent from HUAWEI MATE 20 using GAGT
In our case the reason for needing automatic reboots is a bit involved. My wife has to use her employer's VPN when dialing in. If her DHCP lease expires during a session then she gets kicked off. My workaround is to set the lease duration to one week and have the router reboot 2x/week @ 04:00. This guarantees that her lease cannot expire while she is working during the evening, ever.

So automatic reboots are a game changer for us.

I suggest you disable SSH access from the internet.

There are bots that scan for open ports and possibly attempt to brute force/guess your password.

A more secure way to access your router remotely is to VPN in and then use SSH.

thanks for noticing.. it's currently on for me to configure some settings only because this router is now on double NAT, but during this brief period there is a built in brute force protection feature that is activated as well.. usually it's accessed via the VPN server method..

I dont understand what youre saying lol.
my set is with the official fw. so i downloaded from the suggested website. loaded the fw file with the .trx extension through the update option in the app.
it starts flashing and completed 100%, stating successful. but after reboot, the fw ver remains the same.
i'm connected via wifi from my pc when doing this upgrade

Looking to change router to replace the Singtel router... Is this a good router in mid 2019? Since this is 2 years old alr but seems to still be getting good reviews. Or anyone can recommend any other router similar price range/cheaper?

I don’t think this is 2 years old already. It came out fairly late last year. I used it barely a year I think? Lol. It’s blazing fast man, doesn’t heat up, doesn’t take up much space and very stable. I don’t see any other routers replacing my unit soon. I will say, go for it.
