  • What's the difference between XD6 and XD6S? Couldn't figure it out…

    • +1

      2x Ethernet Ports (XD6s) vs 4x Ethernet Ports (XD6)

  • cant speak for the XT8 but the CD6 has been phenomenal for us, purchased ~1mth ago, range is impressive for the 1 router+1 Satellite. Would recommend 100x over the Orbi, as Orbi cannot do a 5ghz and 2.4ghz separately.

    • Have you them meshed via Ethernet backhaul?

      • By default there is a dedicated wireless backhaul channel, I use this. You can make it dedicated front/backhaul also.

    • I have 2x XT8, range is also really good. I could almost do without the mesh (Nest WiFi certainly needed two) but have Ethernet PC to node and wireless backhaul. Also great having a PC admin portal rather than totally mobile which many these days seem to be.

  • Waiting for the Google Nest Wifi Pro

    • +1

      I would still go with Asus.

  • Can vouch for the XT8. Previously purchased the CT8 for my parents and bought myself an XT8 after seeing how well the CT8 performed.

    Set up was a bit of a pain but after that it works like a charm. Fortunate enough to be able to connect both routers via Ethernet Backhaul so I’m getting near typical speeds in every area of the house (XT8). 250/25 plan with 225 typical speeds from Exetel fyi.

    One thing to note was for both my CT8 and XT8 routers I have not updated to the latest firmware or else it throttles my internet speeds significantly. Tried waiting a year for all the kinks to iron out with the latest firmware and tried updating it recently but it basically made my internet speeds unusable still. Took me 2-3 hours to restore to back to its original firmware OOTB

    • FWIW I have 1000/50 NBN and don't have any NBN issues. Generally 850Mbps give or take.

  • +1

    Have the XT8 for 2 months, solid mesh system. Have via wireless backhaul with satellite connected with RSSI -60dBm. I have a 1000/50 connection with More Telecom. Speedtest direct on router itself achieves 870mbps/47 up. Using iPhone 14 Pro on satellite 650mbps/47. MacBook Pro connected to Satellite 720/47.

    Built in security is great as well, working very reliably.

  • Anyone had issues with xt8 over wireless mesh setup? Issues include resetting itself to factory settings multiple times, the node drops sometimes (then unable to find requiring reset and set up from scratch) and instability with connection.
    My googling led me to this solution, but give it a go next time it goes down.

  • Have had the XT8 for 2 years and about to send them back for RMA a 2nd time.
    When they work they are great. The App and user options are brilliant (such as the ability to block my teenagers off the net remotely when they are playing up).
    HOWEVER - before buying these routers, google issues such as random reboot, dropping wifi, dropping mesh, dropping to 2.4Ghz back haul - you will see lots of known issues that are not being fixed.
    1st RMA was within months of owning. The node kept losing 5Ghz backhaul and eventually lost the 5Ghz band altogether. After lots of trouble shooting, Asus ended up replacing them - though this took a month (with no router).
    Current issue is random reboots - up to every 20 mins. Lots of threads blaming broken firmware, but dropping back to older releases doesnt work… and this issue was 1st reported years ago and is still occurring many firmware updates later).

    These are expensive units and have some great features but they are not reliable.

    • Try hard resetting both and setting up from scratch. New firmware is very stable, mine have been really stable since I purchased them.

      • Tried and same issue. Maybe slightly longer between reboots.

        Mine was stable for around a year as well before getting these issues.

    • Same when setting up from new. Fiddled around with them for ages and eventually found a firmware that seems to work. Never going to change it unless I'm forced to. That's the problem with these kind of products. They are so critical to your life that you can't afford to have them go down. But if you don't update firmware you may be open to attack.

      If I could afford it, I'd buy a second pair and set them up as a "hot swap" replacement so I can update the firmware on the main one and then hot swap to the "backup" pair if the new firmware stuffs up the main one while I troubleshoot the main one.

  • I have FTTN, will I need to plug in my existing router to this, or does it replace my existing (ADSL?) router?

    • +2

      It is just a router. Need to plug in to your modem.

      • Ok thank you, are there any mesh wifi systems that have a built in modem? Cheers

        • +1

          Asus DSL-AX82U is a VDSL2 modem and router that can be paired with Asus AiMesh compatible routers.

          TP-Link Deco X20-DSL or TP-Link Deco X73-DSL VDSL2 modem and router can be paired with other TP-Link Deco's in a mesh.

            @Twix: Great, thank you for your help

  • These prices have all been jacked….
