Alright guys! Thanks for the advice. So I should get a laptop cooler and put the router on top of it?
no need no need. RMerlin mentioned in SNB that its warm to touch doesn't mean it is not designed to operate at that temperature..

Unless you got a lemon set, if not feel warm or hot is normal..

Dear cochran,

You mean

ISP >>> AC87U>> AC87U>> Prolink WNR1004 [AP]>>Devices

Why do you need Prolink WNR1004? when there are 2 extra port for lans.

Please provide both AC87U firmware version?

Best regard,
JK
Hi

I set up the Prolink WNR1004 as wireless access point for me to use my tablet, phone etc in my room as the wireless strength from the main AC87U in the hall is not strong enough.

I want to set the prolink as AP but the mobile device is unable to obtain IP address fr the AC87U. Then i set the prolink to router mode. its able to get internet access via the media bridge unit. meaning i cant have "access" to my other device connected to the main AC87U unit.

firmware latest 3.0.0.4.376_2678

Oh i see okay thanks! There's anther question i would like to ask the experts here, I have just bought a wifi repeater for a media players as the media does not have wifi built in. and the wifi repeater is a 300Mbps rated. For example, the wifi repeater is off and i still can connect to the asus wifi. Then when i on the wifi repeater, will my speed drop as the wifi repeater is only 300Mbps?

All the setup instructions on here seem to be in relation to Singtel i.e. presets and CT1/CT2.

Anywhere I can look for specific instructions for Viewqwest? Can I connect directly from the fiber box on the wall to AC87, or do I still need to use the zhone router?

There is no way you can connect AC87 to the fiber box on the way.

Zhone is a ONT cum Router device, no way you can replace it with AC87 completely !!!

Dear cochran,

You need to play around with your system settings on network drive.

Nothing to do with RT-AC87U settings.

JK

Its the mobile device like iphone 5, sony tablet xperia and xiaomi 1s they are unable to obtain ip address from the AC87u to be connected.

Lets not talk about network drive first.

AC87u unable to assign IP addresses to the mobile device when connected to the prolink WNR1004 when set as AP connected to the media bridge AC87u unit.

Pls advice.

Thank you.
