I've fiddled with the SSE T589vac for a few hours now trying to get the WAN connection working with the AC87U. Various sources on the interweb point to a secret WAN bridge mode. Customer services couldn't help and suggested I disabled the wifi, which I had already done. I've also reset the AC87U, used the wizard to auto detect the settings numerous times as i try different settings on both devices. The network map shows it isn't online. But, only once did it report an error with the DHCP client. By that time I had already changed its IP address to 192.168.2.1 and enabled WAN connection via Ethernet and the relevant auto detect settings.
In router mode on the AC87U the internet LED is red (should be blue) and on the T589vac WAN port it is flashing. When I check the port traffic it shows a lot of data, but no WAN connection. The AC87U WAN connection fields are 0.0.0.0. So it's obviously not picking it up.
I've got it working in Bridged mode by connecting 2 LAN ports. It's decent enough to watch YouTube, Amazon Prime and Kodi with a bit of surfing at the same time, but nowhere near as good as the TT setup. I've updated the FW on the Asus devices. Speed tests come in around 37Mbs down and around 1.5-2.8Mbs up.
I'm hoping someone out there can help me configure everything to get the best performance out of everything. I think I've captured most of the info. I am not an IT professional. Just like fiddling.
My long term project is to get our Synology DS414 on the network too. That is another headache. Thanks in-advance.
