    Purchasing RT-AX86U AX5700 Router would help to increase VPN speed ?

    I have an RT-AX86U and I also use NordVPN over UDP. On a 500/500 Mbps WAN connection, I get a little more than 300 Mbps download over VPN, with a little less on the upload side. The router is running Merlin 386.3_2. I think the RT-AX86U would greatly improve your connection speeds, though...

    2.5G Port for backhaul with Aimesh Node?

    For what it's worth, here's another data point. I have two RT-AX86Us, one is in router mode and the other in AP mode. They are connected via 2.5G backhaul using about 60 meters of Cat5e cable running from a basement to a second floor through a cold air return duct. Both ends of the long cable...

    RT-AX86U - Router and AP - Ethernet Port Status

    I'm sure there is probably a more elegant way to do it, but on my access point I used the brute force method of unplugging everything but the 2.5G backhaul port, then plugging in a working computer to one port at a time and seeing where it showed up on the status screen. That's how I found out...

    RT-AX86U - Router and AP - Ethernet Port Status

    I have the same setup as Rassal, two AX-86Us with one being a router and the other an access point. I see the same status discrepancy. I reported this to Asus in early October 2020. They responded and confirmed that it was a bug. They obviously haven't fixed it yet. And I think the bug is...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Do you have 160 MHz bandwidth enabled on the 5 GHz Wireless General page? If so, what you are seeing is normal. When the radios are restarted because of a configuration change, the router has to check for radar interference on the DFS channels. This takes about one minute on my AX86U. If you...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    I have two AX86Us. One is the main router and the other an access point. Both are running ASUS firmware 3.0.04.386_41435 and are connected via the 2.5G ports. Here's the status display from the main router: The access point doesn't show the 2.5G connection at all. Here's its status...

    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    I'm getting three of these log messages every time an NTP update occurs, the messages are a couple of seconds apart. Sep 14 21:20:15 ntp: waiting for dnsmasq... I was getting more NTP messages, but then turned off NTP logging. I recently updated from the fork V14 to V18. I don't...

    Both my wife and I have Nexus 7 tablets that had random disconnects. I gave them static IP’s and the disconnects disappeared completely. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    Asuswrt-Merlin 378.50 is out

    Samba password length error This error can be fixed by modifying some Windows settings. In XP and Win7, it is fixed by using Windows' policy editor. Most likely, the same thing can be done in Win8 and Win10. On the Windows machine, open Control Panel -> System and Security ->...

    USB Devices

    I've been using Asuswrt-Merlin for some time now. I have a USB disk attached. It has always been /dev/sda1. I recently bought a second USB disk and installed it. The issue is when the router reboots, sometimes the two disks are /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1. Other times they are /dev/sda1 and...
