Yeah - WiFi - 4 LAN Ports and 1 WAN would be great.

Feedback - As a Idea and part of Network security -> Network Segmentation with the option to let other Subnets Route to each other or not (Like a toggle switch) :D

Makes Home-Network configuration a breeze like:

- Do you want to segment your network for IoT / TV / PC / Console / WiFi and it gives you a choice on how many devices you have or plan to have (Example: 10 in total)
- Then it could create equal subnets automatically (Example: IoT 192.168.0.0 /29 - TV 192.168.1.0 /29 - PC 192.168.2.0 /29 - Console 192.168.3.0 /29 - WiFi 192.168.4.0 /29) - That means that there is space for six devices in each network and if you need more you just switch up the Subnet form there on... /28 = 14 Devices on each Network
- Like this ppl can choose if the IoT network should talk to the consoles or the TV and so on...
Just a idea/suggestion :D

Sincerely
Val.
Yep, I get that recommendation. I'll stick it on our list. Not sure how long it will take to implement, but I know it's not something they are working on at the moment. I have daily calls with our Engineering team.

We really appreciate any and all feedback, so thank you for the suggestion!

Question to all aiprotect/merlin/asus router users. Does aiprotect/trenmicro block/notify on ransomware activity (specifically encrypting of network shares)?. Has anyone had ransomware activity on their network that aiprotect/asus trendmicro missed?

It would if it contacted a C&C server I bet. It’s mostly IP filtering, or at least it used to be.

Thanks! I have to say, our AX router is pretty awesome. I'm testing out the new app as well, and it's got some great improvements! My only problem at the moment with the AX router is that for some reason we've removed a couple of LAN ports. :( I'm going to ask about it, cause I am definitely bummed.
I've had the AX for a few weeks now and that's my only issue as well. I actually had to get another ethernet switch to replace the extra LAN ports I was using on the old Tower. But other than that, the AX is great so far.

There are only 2 lan ports on the AX!? That would be a deal breaker for our house.

My biggest gripe about the Gryphon is UPnP not working for game systems/PCs. I know it’s not the most secure, but if kept up to date the UPnP stack can be used on a home network.
There's only 1 LAN. And the 1 WAN. Their response to my question was that wanted to concentrate on making it more wireless.

I ordered a Belkin RT3200 to flash it with OpenWrt, the hardware looks promising (64 bit dual core Cortex A53 @ 1.35GHz, 512MB RAM and 4x4 WiFi 6 radio).

My current router it's a Mikrotik hAP AC2 but WiFi it's not so good although ROS 7.1 beta recently got CAKE QoS.
