Any chance for ac66u (non USB) to get the imesh firmware? Ac66u thou is old model but really solid in terms of firmware stability
Check if you're is the B1 variant.

Thanks, spent a few hours to setup the mesh. Is this true mesh? Seems like transferring from router to router, there is disconnection. I tried with WhatsApp call and got disconnected

Unfortunately this is how wifi works. When you moved from one ap to another ap It will drop for a few seconds.

Unlike 4g calls can transfer call from one radio tower to the next tower without call drop

This firmware is working better for me 3.0.0.4.384_20287

I am using pure wireless because the ethernet cable is spoilt.

5 ghz repeating is holding up even after 1 days 12 hours 3 minute(s) 18 seconds.

i used to only get half an hr on ai mesh on the 10007 firmware.

Still cannot access then gui cause i would be redirected away if i did that. still cannot assign a static ip on the second aimesh ap.


Link speed with door closed is 150Mbps at -57 dpi at the furthest point away from the second aimesh point
Someone on the 88 thread mentioned that you can assign the ip by mac id manually

Recently took my old rt68 and update the firmware ton support mesh and i. Was quite happy with the mesh performance. My iPhone and iPad switch over transparent without nothing any connect issue.

Had not try it on video/audio call yet. For surfing and messaging is good enough

Maybe unless it's follows the 5 GHz Mac id or the 2.4 GHz Mac id.

I am not sure which one to assign to.

Eh ok

I just tried to copy the Mac id from the detected AiMesh node in the network map of the main router

Copied and pasted to the DHCP static list all

Seems good I can assign a fixed ip and the mesh does not disappear like in the 10007 firmware.

But it still directs me to the main router.asus.com/Main_Login.asp URL when I try to key in the fixed ip gui

In its current implementation, you can't access individual nodes. It's the same for my AiMesh at home. Even for mesh devices like Lyra, Velop or Orbi, you can't access individuals nodes anyway.

Just wanted to share for those who wants to get a cheap second hand AC68U, I have just bought a Certified refurbished AC1900 (which is ac68u) from amazon us, costed $49+11 shipping, so about SGD80. Its condition is as good as brand new, and comes with 90 days warranty, and shipping took just 1 week. It does come with a TC Mobile logo, which I see as the only downside to this awesome deal.

It then takes 1-3 hrs of following online guide to convert from AC1900 firmware to AC68U, depends on your tech saviness. Steps are in the amazon items questions, it is a popular process US buyers are doing, so plenty of googles hits on it.

After 2hrs, I got it converted into a proper ASUS AC68U. Now it is happily connected to my AC88U as a AiMesh node.

Amazon price can fluctuate a bit based on whether the seller has stock, probably due to this AiMesh news, stock has been running low, although they are restocking.
I just gotten 2 AC1900 from amazon...managed to flash both last nite.... Going to try the mesh feature later

I also took the same route , tm ac 1900 successful flashed to ac68u using cfe 1.0.2.0 eu.
Now running as a mesh node connect to ac3100 router.

Took a hard time to connect the node to router, finally resolved after disabled mac filtering. It just won't connect when filtering is on even is in the accept list.

So far has been running strong no disconnect issue, and previous blind spot is seeing 2bars now.

After flashing to AC68U, are you able to update to the latest firmware from Asus SG website?

Having trouble too, there's bug with the fw20187 according to the changelog on Asus website.
I scp the latest fw20308 to the router then mtd-write2 the firmware in SSH.
Reboot then new fw is online.
