First of all, my router is an ASUS router, but not an ROG router. I couldn't find any ASUS support forums other than the ROG forums, so I'm posting here. My old LinkSys router started acting flakey, so I replaced it with an ASUS RT-AC68U. It seems like a decent router and should be an easy drop-in replacement for my LinkSys. That was wishful thinking. I've never had so much trouble replacing a router in my life. My network connection is Auto, with no settings from my ISP to set. Initial router setup detected that and took me straight into wireless network setup. I setup my 2.4 and 5GHz networks and I can connect the Internet through them with no issue. The problem is that I cannot connect via ethernet with any of my wired devices. My network is mostly wired, I only use wireless for devices that don't have an ethernet port. If it has a port, I use it. The problem is, now I can only access the Internet through iPads, iPhones, and one old laptop. That's all I have because my wired network isn't responding and I have no idea why. I have all of my ethernet ports going back to a 24 port switch, which is then connected to my router. I'm showing activity on the router ethernet port that my switch is connected to and I'm showing activity on the various ports on my switch, but I can't hit anything on the Internet with any device. There really isn't much else to my network. It isn't all that complicated and is pretty fool proof. A new router should pretty much be a drop-in swap, but something isn't going right with this ASUS router and I have no idea what it may be.
Does anyone have any ideas?
