Replacing MI424WR Rev F Router

Message 1 of 4

I got Asus RT-AC68U high speed router. Have it hooked to my MI424WR Rev F router as an WL Access Point. MI424WR was having issues connecting to my WiiU. The Asus has no issues. I want to make the Asus the main router (much faster). I know CAT5 to ONT. Can I get my TV guides to work?

As long as you give the ActionTec an Internet connection despite your ASUS being the main router (basically, hang the ActionTec off of your ASUS and use it as a switch or an additional Wi-Fi AP), your TV Guide info and Video on Demand will continue working. The only things that won't work are Remote DVR and On-Screen Caller ID.

I think that your problem is that AC routers only operate at 5ghz but certain devices will only operate at 2.4ghz.

 

I know that the original Wii's only operated on 2.4ghz as do many phones.

 

I just bought the ASUS RT-66U N900 router today.  This isn't as fast but is dual band and everything works great on it.

My on screen caller id works fine, via the double natt'd vz router - you just need to forward to the VZ router the verizon fios service port tat were created on the VZ router.
