[Wireless Router] Which Wireless backhaul should I use on ASUS Router?
Dedicated Wireless Backhaul (DWB) and AiMesh wireless backhaul mechanism work on:
Triband and above.
Firmware later than 188.8.131.52.386_xxxx.
Our AiMesh Wireless Backhaul feature allows you to configure the wireless backhaul based on different requirements. It could be dedicated backhaul only, or connect to devices when using us backhaul.
So, which might be the best choice for you?
Let's start with “Do I have high frequency (5GHz-2 or 6 GHz) demand on internet “? The 5GHz-2 or 6GHz band will be prioritized as dedicated backhaul by default, while you are using triband models to build up an AiMesh system.
If you HAVE NO high frequency (5GHz-2 or 6GHz) demand from end devices, we recommend remaining "Use as a dedicated wireless backhaul "as your DWB band. This in particular backhaul creates an uplink connection from AiMesh node to main router, therefore providing the best transmission to each mesh node.
But If you HAVE high frequency (5GHz-2 or 6GHz) demand from gaming and streaming, or your AiMesh main router & node(s) establish on Ethernet backhaul, “Use as both backhaul and fronthaul connection” would be a rather good choice for your DWB band configuration; however, switch to ‘’Use as both backhaul and fronthaul connection’’, the priority of the backhaul will be replaced, and share bandwidth with devices.
The Following steps will display how to change your dedicated backhaul on Web GUI and ASUS Router app. Web GUI layout depends on the model. Here we take ROG GT-AXE11000 and ZenWiFi AX as example.
Here we take ROG GT-AXE11000 for example.
Step 1. Connect your computer to the router via wired or WiFi connection.
