XB8 and ASUS Router

Nuke71
I've been here awhile

Hi all,

Just got the XB8, I was wondering if I could utilize the wifi 6 on the modem but disable the 2.4 and 5 ghz and use the 2.4 and 5 ghz from the ASUS router? Is this possible? Would I keep the modem in gateway mode and setup the ASUS as an AP so I can still use my other ASUS AiMesh router as well?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Biollw! I finally got around to doing this and it works like a charm. Actually had to factory reset the XB8 as the app still showed as still in bridge mode. Then put the main ASUS router in AP mode and then added the second ASUS router as an AIMESH node. Working great so far! Thanks again!
