nvram return to 32k.
Wow, it did.
What is the benefit to have 64k nvram ? I can see this version runs quite good for me...
P/s: Anybody still have a slow down with Qos in this release ?
The router stores a lot of information in nvram, including hardware configuration. In the case of a dual band router like the RT-N66U, it means a lot of that space is already taken by hardware configuration, leaving limited space for storing actual user configuration.
A typical RT-N66U with basic settings has only around 2 KB of space left out of 32 KB. Those 2 KB are used to store things like port forwarding, DHCP reservations, QoS rules, etc... It's very easy to accidentally fill up the remaining nvram, which will result in a crashing router, followed by a complete wipe of all your configuration.
Asus only released betas with 64 KB nvram. The last official release (144) was also 32 KB.
RMerlin, are you able to implement that when you update your version ?
I've had 64K nvram enabled since my 144.10 builds.
I'll release 157.12 real soon, then start working on rebasing on 162 once they release the sources.
Well, that's what I meant. Once they release the info you need from 162.
is 144 the last official? it's not available from within the router upgrade UI. 112 is still on mine showing the most current. However, on 112 I've experienced daily stale and had to reboot at a daily basis, otherwise the router is awesome.
I run linksys EA4500 and N66U side by side, both performed greatly with multiple HD streaming on both 5G and 2.4G. The only difference seems to be the coverage and speed on the edge. N66U, if not this daily stale/reboot, its speed is better than linksys its about 20-30 feet away from the router. therefore I'm looking for the newer firmware to upgrade hopefully takes care the staleness.
Asus pulled 144 the day after releasing it, for unknown reason.
162 is now the latest official release, published by them today.
I suspect your daily reboots might be caused by you using an IPv6 tunnel. There was a memory leak in Asuswrt that was fixed by Asus in 151.
I am located in Europe (FW 162) - how does the N66U sense my location? I would like to try power settings beyond 100mW, but it doesnt let me.
Depends where you bought it as the region is preprogrammed in the CFE, router bios.
Over at the wl500g.info forums there's info on how to change the routers region to get over this limit.
Only seems to be beneficial using the official firmware.
By stale, I mean the speed drops to very low.
I don't have ip6 tunnel on (in the type dropdown it says disabled). However, just loaded 162, will see how it plays.
