    For me it is open, I don't understand how this is taking asus so long to fix or how this isnt being made a bigger issue, this is an incredible oversight and security vulnerability where any other users with this equipment may be broadcasting an open network without even realizing it.

    The open SSID gives FULL ACCESS to my entire network, all devices, full visibilty as if I were connected to the password connected to the properly secured WPA2 SSID

    This should be incredibly simple, the AC68U mesh node should be matching it's 5GHz radio configuration to the primary AXE's 5GHz settings, NOT the AXE's 6GHz settings because the AC68U does not have a 6GHz radio

    (RT-AC68U) Node
    2.4 SSID- A password protected
    5 SSID- C open network

    As you can see, AC68U broadcasting SSID C when it should be broadcasting SSID B, because SSID C is configured for the 6GHz radio on the AXE11000
    What is the firmware ver. on RT-AC68U?

    Maybe when Windows 11 comes out in late October, (probably Halloween ) it will clear some of this up. I have not tried running a Mesh system again but maybe I will now that my 6 GHz radio is operating normally with the Windows Insider Dev channel.

    I still think it is only seeing the SSID, not the actual network.

    I asked you this question and you sort of skipped over the answer without actually giving one. This is what I found to be the answer to that question.

    If you have had Win 10 forget all your known Wi-Fi networks, then that computer will not be able to wirelessly join your network without a password. And if you have the 6 GHz radio set with WPA-3 security, the network is password protected and secure .. and I know that for sure since I just reconfigured my entire network to test..

    My system is set to use Ethernet Back Haul only and I see no mention of the 6 GHz SSID, except in the section shown below. The info shown is confusing but the actual radio for that SSID is not available to my AX92U or 68U..

    I also just got another firmware upgrade from a 41xxx to 43xxx.. I will check that out using the system with Wi-Fi 6 GHz capability..

    I've mentioned before, I think you are misunderstanding a crucial detail for what I'm explaining: I can confirm without shadow of a doubt that this is not related to Windows, which version of windows, my wifi card, drivers, my computer, or any combination of them. I dont understand why you keep bringing up windows and 6GHz radios, I've explained several times there is no issue with 6GHz as that radio is set to off until I have wifi 6e devices to use it.

    Its not a matter of whether or not my devices (cell phones, tablets, laptops) can see the proper information, considering every device sees the same thing (an open unsecured network) I'd say its safe to say the issue is inside the router and not my devices.

    I've tried explaining this in so many different ways I dont know what else to say to you except for you to please re-ead my threads. The issue is either A. in the firmware of the AXE11000 because the primary mesh router is what configures the node clients, or B. in the firmware of the AC68U because is is not configuring its 5GHz settings to match the 5GHz settings of the AXE11000.

    Please reference my post attempting to show visually the expected and actual behavior, pay close attention to the SSID names (A, B, or C for examples) and how the node is not using SSID B like it should. SSID B is set for the 5GHz radio on the AXE11000, SSID C is set for the 6GHz radio on the AXE11000... problem is the AC68U broadcast SSID C as open network

    After 29 contacts with support, each time has been someone new telling me either they are escalating my case or that there are no RMA units available... Not once have they managed to contact me for troubleshooting

    I performed a complete system format and reinitialize settings, Mesh node still broadcasting wrong SSID and OPEN security when it should be WPA2
