    Thanks. Just set the Get LAN IP to Auto/Dynamic and it rebooted and picked up date/time. Forgot to change DNS, it was still on NO and...

    That's exactly it. I recreated the time not being set with gateway 0.0.0.0.....as soon as it's set to the router, everything works....

  6. anotherengineer replied to the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    Thanks John. If I set the N66 AP to DHCP, do I still have to put in the 68U router ip into the n66 DNS address? (mech eng, not...

  7. anotherengineer liked john9527's post in the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    @anotherengineer '0.0.0.0' should work as the default gateway. Put your routers address in as the DNS address. But, I would set the...

  8. anotherengineer liked ColinTaylor's post in the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    @anotherengineer You need a default gateway, which will be your main router's IP address. Probably simpler just to leave the AP set as...

    no change, same thing won't pick up time. I used Hostname time.nrc.ca IP Address 132.246.168.148

  10. anotherengineer liked ColinTaylor's post in the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    @anotherengineer Perhaps the AP doesn't have a valid DNS server set. Try specifying the IP address of an NTP server near you rather than...

  12. anotherengineer liked john9527's post in the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    Been a while since I set up an AP. I can pull my N66 and try it and refresh my memory.... First, did you do a factory reset after the...

  13. anotherengineer replied to the thread [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (V42E7).

    Good to see you back John. I just put 42E7 on my old RT-N66U, h/w B1, and I am running in AP mode. I gave it static ip. The router...

  14. anotherengineer liked ColinTaylor's post in the thread open WRT security hole.

    No. Asuswrt/Merlin is not OpenWRT. EDIT: See post #7.

  15. anotherengineer liked RMerlin's post in the thread open WRT security hole.

    What's your point here? Those security holes are long fixed. And half of them aren't even related to Asuswrt, but to other Asus...
