    I followed exact the same steps and I cant make it work here.

    I have 2 EA6900 runing the latest A68U firmware, but cant connect the AIMESH node.

    did you do anything else? what is your setup there? what is your main router and what is your node?

    I have multiple TM-AC1900 converted routers (AC68U), which I used as AiMesh router and nodes (ethernet backhaul). To get EA6900 connected as an AiMesh node, I performed the following:

    1) take the CFE from post #101,
    2) modify it so that MAC addresses match with your router
    - the LAN and 2.4GHz MAC should match with the mac address written at the back of your router,
    - the mac address for 5GHz should be the LAN+4
    3) also modify the following fields in the CFE:

    (credit goes to david901 at post #195)
    4) flash this CFE to ea6900
    5) install the latest AiMesh firmware from Asus (for AC68U).

    after these steps, I was able to connect EA6900 (v1.1) as an AiMesh node.
