Additional Asus router settings

In addition to disabling “Airtime Fairness” which was stickied at the top, here are my RT-AC86U router settings which focuses on 2.4GHz band for Wyze cameras and my smart light switches. These are settings just what I used mainly for my environment and I found them to be quite stable.

Wireless - General 2.4GHz band

  • Wireless Mode - Auto (you can set it as N/AC mixed, but I have 1 really old wireless G printer. Also I disabled 11b because I don’t have any of those devices)
  • Channel bandwidth - 20 MHz (for better range and wall penetration)
  • Control Channel - 1, 6 or 11 (you can pick which ever has the least interference)
  • Protected Management Frames - Disable

Wireless - Professional 2.4GHz band

  • Roaming Assistant - Disable
  • Enable IGMP Snooping - Disable
  • Multicast Rate (Mbps) - OFDM 6
  • Preamble Type - Short (Long could be better for some IoT devices, but Short seems to allow me to connect quicker to Wyze cameras)
  • Enable TX Bursting - Disable
  • DTIM interval - 1
  • Beacon interval - 100
  • Enable WMM APSD - Disable (you can enable this for power saving, but from my testing I seem to get a better connection quality with it disabled)
  • Modulation Scheme - Up to MCS 7 (802.11n)
  • Airtime Fairness - Disable
  • Multi-User MIMO - Disable
  • Explicit Beamforming - Disable
  • Universal Beamforming - Disable
  • Tx power adjustment - Performance
