    If your Lyra Voice is under warranty, I would open a ticket with Asus. Does rebooting the Lyra Voice correct the 2.4 GHz radio? If not, you might try to change it to be an access point or router...

    As you stated, 2.4GHz has a further range than 5GHz (and 6GHz), but has a much lower data transfer rate, which is why the backhaul (third radio) prefers to use the 5GHz-2 or 6GHz radio of the...

    Having the same SSID on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz-1 channels makes it easier for roaming devices to connect to the best signal. Regardless if this is a mesh or non-mesh environment, having a single...

    I have WPA2/WPA3 enabled for the backhaul 5GH-2 channel on my ZenWiFi XT8 router. My XT8 node uses WPA3, whereas my CT8 node (WiFi-5 802.11ac) uses WPA2 for the dedicated backhaul.

    However, when...

    Your RT-AC68U nodes are only dual-band (as you probably know). Since you are using wired backhaul, then I would suggest making the RT-AC5300 5GHz-2 channel available as a second 5GHz channel, as it...

    I would guess that your third SSID assigned to your second 5GHz frequency would not be available from the dual-band node since it does not have that 5GHz frequency available.

    The number of frequency bands (dual or tri-band) has nothing to do with the number of SSIDs. Dual band has 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies, and tri-band has these and a second 5GHz band that is usually...
