    Firmware upgrade not working, upload of firmware is timing out

    I'm trying to upgrade to the latest f/w (384.18_0), but each time I try to upload the new f/w it times out. I've gotten as close as 93% uploaded and then it died, though sometimes it times out after 5% (seems quite random). Any ideas how to avoid this problem? Can I SCP the f/w to some...

    The jffs partition is full and I cannot remove any files nor format the partition

    Hi, I've finally gotten around to restoring my AC-RT86U to factory defaults (since upgrading to Merlin) and i'm now attempting to clear the jffs partition, but i'm having trouble. I've tried the GUI option of "Format JFFS partition at next boot" several times, but it is not working. I've...

    AIProtection - Parental Control - Time Scheduling

    Talking about an RT-AC86U. No, i did not do a full reset (although I recall you've told me that already). I will do that and see how things go.

    AIProtection - Parental Control - Time Scheduling

    Magically, my second device suddenly appeared. I did nothing but enter and exit the Parental Control section multiple times. At first I was unable to modify the time range, but after deleting and re-adding the client MANY times, it finally allowed me to enter a time range. And i can confirm...

    AIProtection - Parental Control - Time Scheduling

    Hi, I'm running the latest version of Merlin (384.17) and i've found recently that the "Parental Control Time Scheduling" feature in the webUI is not working. I mean it's partially working, but the problems i'm having with it qualify it as "not working" in my opinion. I have two devices set...

    Downgrade to stock ASUS f/w for RT-AC86U

    Wow, looks painful. I'm guessing the router does a factory reset as part of the procedure? (it doesn't explicitly say). Anyway, my problems with Merlin are all webUI-based (for which i'll start a new threat)... so not really major. Perhaps there are methods with which i can accomplish the...

    Downgrade to stock ASUS f/w for RT-AC86U

    Hi, Yes, i'm ashamed to say it, but i would like to downgrade my f/w to the latest ASUS stock f/w (Version 3.0.0.4.384.81858). Would anyone care to share the procedure? I am running the latest version of Merlin. I have tried using the Manual f/w update option (clicking "upload") twice but my...

    The jffs partition is full

    I just installed RMerlin 384.17_0 using the manual f/w update procedure and then rebooted. My existing settings were restored, I did not initialize all settings or do a factory reset... i didn't want to have to reconfigure everything (and didn't know I had to). But when I was using the stock...

    The jffs partition is full

    Only scMerlin. I've only just installed Merlin this week, so my router is quite green.

    The jffs partition is full

    I just recently installed scMerlin to the jffs partition on my ASUS RT-AC86U router and it is working just fine. However, today i tried to setup dnsmasq.conf on the jffs partition and i'm getting an error for no space left on device: [email protected]:/jffs/configs# pwd /jffs/configs...

    Web Interface for RT-AC86U not working, need to reboot router

    @kernol Thanks very much for the tip... I have installed scMerlin and I can now give my WebUI a kick without having to reboot my router (which was quite annoying). I don't know what caused this problem with the WebUI becoming unresponsive in my case, but the only change I made was to replace...

    Web Interface for RT-AC86U not working, need to reboot router

    Hi All, I just recently moved from the stock ASUSwrt firmware to the Merlin f/w, and i've noticed an issue. Now, for some reason, I'm having trouble hitting the link for the Web interface login. I have to reboot the router and then the link works. I'm trying to hit...
