  • - Hey guys, this is Austin and our Wi-Fi sucks!

  • So you guys will probably remember our old set.

  • (laughs)

  • Alright.

  • Now, that was great, it was cool to have everything

  • in one office but as we've started expanding we've gotten

  • another office that's across the hall.

  • It's awesome because it's enabled us to do a ton of

  • cool stuff, build some new sets, have a lot more space,

  • but the problem is that the Wi-Fi is now a

  • straight up disaster.

  • So that's where Asus comes in, not only do they sponsor

  • this video, but more importantly they hooked us up with

  • their brand new Lyra Trio.

  • Hopefully the saving grace to our terrible Wi-Fi situation.

  • So, the thing is we actually have good Internet

  • here at the office.

  • We have a dedicated business line with 300 Mbps up and down,

  • and as long as we're actually here in the office,

  • typically we get pretty decent speeds.

  • So, over Wi-Fi a lot of times we're actually going to be

  • pretty close to that full 300 Mbps.

  • Now see there we're getting 190, 240, 260, I mean that's

  • definitely, totally solid speed.

  • Now, Wi-Fi's really important for us as not only are we

  • obviously going to be doing stuff like watching videos and

  • downloading stuff, but importantly we deal with a lot of

  • really giant video files we're constantly uploading

  • to YouTube, uploading and sending files back and forth

  • between us, and of course most importantly, downloading

  • those sweet, sweet Steam games to do the benchmarks with.

  • So in comparison if I run a speed test in our second office,

  • you're going to see that the speeds are slightly

  • less than 280 Mbps.

  • So right now we're getting...

  • Four, maybe five megabits, oh no, down to two, one.

  • So, the thing is not only do we not get great speeds,

  • but almost more importantly than that, it sort of

  • drops out pretty consistently.

  • So the way that a mesh Wi-Fi system works is

  • pretty straightforward.

  • So, right now we have a single Wi-Fi router, now it's going

  • to be a fairly high-end AC solution and it's fine for a

  • small space, but the laws of physics mean the Wi-Fi can

  • only go so far.

  • So, if you take a look at the actual Lyra itself, you'll see

  • that the way of getting around this is just to add

  • more stations to the mix.

  • I make it sound really simple, as if a bunch of engineers

  • at Asus didn't spend years and hundreds and thousands of

  • man hours on developing a product.

  • I'm like, "Just add more Wi-Fi, it's fine, don't worry

  • about it!"

  • (laughs)

  • Out of the years that we've shot videos, I've never heard

  • Ken say the words, "My thumb was in the shot."

  • (laughs)

  • So the way this works is that one of these will function

  • as your main base station.

  • So just like any other Wi-Fi router, you just need to

  • connect it via Ethernet to your modem, and especially if

  • you have a smaller house or apartment, one of these is

  • actually going to be enough to cover it.

  • However, if you've got a little bit of a bigger house or

  • specifically for our situation, you have an office that has

  • a lot of space to cover, you can connect to the additional

  • hubs and they will all work together.

  • What's unique about these is that not only do they have

  • 3x3 MIMO Wi-Fi, but you're also going to be getting

  • this triangular design.

  • So, what's cool about that is not only do you have full

  • dual-band support for 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi, but because

  • they do have this triangular shape, you're going to be

  • getting some better range.

  • So you have to think about a mesh network a little bit

  • differently than a standard Wi-Fi network in that your

  • devices are going to be connecting and bouncing between

  • all of these depending on where you are in the house,

  • but also only one of these typically, at least, although

  • I'll talk a little more about that later, is going to be

  • connected to your router.

  • So these also need to be able to communicate between

  • each other and the 3x3 plus the actual triangular design

  • makes all of this work a lot better than

  • a traditional 2x2 solution.

  • The triangular design also helps the Lyra to project

  • better Wi-Fi signal into multiple story houses.

  • So this is something that I actually wouldn't mind using in

  • my own place.

  • So I do use a mesh network in Google Wi-Fi, and well for

  • the most part it actually does work really well,

  • one of my main issues is the performance.

  • It's reliable but a lot of times when I'm farther away from

  • the main base station, I see significantly reduced speeds.

  • In addition, while these will work wirelessly, if you have a

  • newer place that has Ethernet wired around your house,

  • you actually can use the Ethernet backhaul to connect

  • each one of these to the network independently.

  • So that will give you some better speeds because instead of

  • them having to talk to each other wirelessly, it can all be

  • done via wired Ethernet and you're going to be getting

  • the maximum speed.

  • So our current network setup is pretty straightforward.

  • So, a lot of it surrounds this, the Storinator that I built

  • with Linus a little over a year ago, which currently has

  • over 150TB of capacity that we use to store all of our

  • raw footage as well as our completed projects.

  • So Jimmy has the iMac Pro which is connected via

  • 10 Gig Ethernet to the Storinator.

  • So you actually don't need the Wi-Fi that much, but for

  • Ken and I we're actually pretty much entirely relying

  • on Wi-Fi to be able to pull down files and that

  • kind of stuff.

  • So, let's actually get this set up.

  • With our UPS installed and our cable modem disconnected,

  • the next step is to install Lyra.

  • So, all we need to do with this guy is just plug it in

  • with the included power cable and plug it directly

  • into our cable modem.

  • So we plug the Lyra into power as well as connect our

  • Ethernet port into the LAN/WAN, then we just need to turn

  • on our cable modem and we will be up and running...

  • Hopefully.

  • Next step is to download the Lyra app for iPhone or Android

  • and it should be as simple as just connecting it like this.

  • Excellent, your Lyra mesh Wi-Fi node has been discovered.

  • And there we go, the Lyra is set-up.

  • So our next step is to take our other base stations and

  • spread them out throughout the office.

  • So, one of the main things we actually need to keep in mind

  • is that we have to cover not only this space but also

  • the space across the hall.

  • Setting up the base stations is really straightforward.

  • All you need to do is plug them in and then inside the app,

  • they will be added and then once everything is tied together

  • and any firmware updates are done, you're going to be

  • up and running.

  • Inside the app you can see that not only do we have the

  • main Lyra but also do have the secondary one in the office

  • as well as most importantly for what we need here,

  • we have a Lyra set up in our secondary studio.

  • So with Lyra we are getting features like AI protection,

  • which is using Trend Micro to be able to analyze any

  • kind of threats on the network.

  • But the most important question is, is it going to be

  • faster in here now?

  • Let's find out.

  • Please be faster, please be faster!

  • Alright, pings pretty quick and oh yeah!

  • Dude, 120, 130, wow!

  • And that's at serious upload as well.

  • 170, 180 Mbps.

  • So no, it's not going to be the full 300 Mbps that's

  • theoretically possible, but considering that we were at

  • two, three, maybe 4 Mbps in here before, this has made

  • a huge difference.

  • So, that my friends is how we fixed the Wi-Fi

  • in our studios.

  • Of course, huge shout-out to Asus for sponsoring this video

  • and if you guys wanna go check out the Lyra, the link

  • will be in the description.
