It's so bizarre to find a router now a days that you can't adjust the channels for your wifi since it's such a crucial step for troubleshooting interference issues. ...I don't have the AX3000 doing router duties because the majority of commercial firmware is extremely lacking, and Linksys is no exception.

    "Good but heavy focus on using app to manage...Only downside in my opinion is the management interface does not seem to be too robust. Also a heavy push to use a mobile app to manage. Other than that it works well and I get great speeds....With an eye towards simplifying and reusing the machine running the firewall, I started looking at decent units that could do duty as "one unit" without me having to maintain a firewall and WAP, with he resulting mess of cabling and power bricks.
