ASUS is turning old routers into mesh Wi-Fi networks

ASUS has unveiled its AiMesh system, which lets you repurpose your old ASUS routers as mesh network components.

Mesh Wi-Fi networks automatically repeat a wireless signal and can be used to extend a Wi-Fi signal around the home.

Setting up the AiMesh network is relatively straightforward, ASUS said, and can be done through a PC interface or mobile app.

AiMesh also supports Wi-Fi networks with multiple SSIDs and users can mix and match compatible ASUS routers within their network.

Setting up AiMesh on a compatible router requires users to download a beta firmware package from the ASUS website.
