Possible to configure Google Wifi having same SSID as Asus RT-AC88U WiFi SSID and same Network Segment? 192.168.1.x. Asus is the main internet router.

Sent from my friend's phone using GAGT
There is no need to put on different IP segment because you are not bridging the 2 together. When Google wifi detects its connected to a router, it will automatically establish a transparent bridge with the router but with a separate NAT. You can go ahead to use it normally..

Regarding wifi on Asus, first of all are the 2 equipments far apart or next to each other.

If next to each other, Asus should have wifi turned off..

using AC88U with my current AC5300 for Aimesh.

Hi guys thinking of top up from M1 since going to recontract for the AC88U then setup Asus Aimesh , does it really work for dead zone in the HDB?

doubt you'll need AiMesh for HDB if you are using such a powerful router.
AC88 alone is enough to cover 2-storey landed.
Even AC86 alone can cover entire 5-room HDB.
In the rare event you really need AiMesh, definitely can cover deadzone with proper placement.

Hi. Iím currently on singtel miotv and Fiber broadband. Up till today my connection is

Fiber point -> ont-> singtel router-> airties mesh 1-> (wireless ) airties mesh 2 -> miotv.

I had this set up because my master bed room have no data point and the mesh system worked well with my mio tv.

I wanted to replace my singtel router to Asus 88u. So my setup is

Fiber point -> ont-> Asus router-> airties mesh 1-> (wireless ) airties mesh 2 -> miotv.

I did enable vlan tagging in the router and connected my airties mesh 1 to port 4 of my Asus router. But my miotv is not starting up. Is there a way I can setup without running any trunking or using the singtel router. Please advise. Urgent. Thanks.

hi all,

i am experiencing slow wifi speeds on this router even after upgrading from the DIR-865L.

Download speeds on wifi still average 1XX - 200mbps at most, but upload speed is about 400-600mbps.

is there a setting or configuration that i am missing or should enable/disable?

thank you!

+1 this, I'm using 3 routers in fact.. there's a particular dead spot that I tend to use my phone, coz of the newer bto store room being in the middle of the house, WiFi signal can't pass thru that store at all. But for the small dead spot I only use a cheapo free router

Hi Shifu,

I've got a RT-AC5300 and RT-AC88U router. I have created a mesh network with these two router (RT-AC88U - Main router and 5300 - Node).

Just wanna know if I need to upgrade any future firmware, do I have to upgrade the main router only or both my router?

I used to use just one 88U for 5-rm (DBSS). Covers the whole area leh.
After that shift it to a 2-storey landed still covers the whole house (except the garden).
You have many things blocking or interfering with wifi signal ?
