    AC68U WDS with DSL-N55U as a bridge

    One thing I have noticed is the Network list on AC68U loses the static N55U routers in the list then they come back within a couple of minutes but the N55U on beta firmware network list is stable.

    ASUS RT-AC68U - New Firmware Released July 24, 2020

    I already have Wifi analyser and the 2.4 band has around another 3 routers. The AC68U is set to fixed channels, 11 and 44. Trouble is when I change the 2.4 channel there is a BT router that seems to follow it and maybe that is interfering as it is the strongest signal. I will try 5 ghz for a...

    RT-AC68U AI Protection

    If I turn on AI Protection, I have to turn off Intrusion Detection as it falsely identifies a program on my PC, DSLStats which connects to the modem via telnet to get modem stats every minute and plot graphs. It identifies it as a medium bot Telnet Admin threat. Is there anyway to whitelist it...

    Considering returning my RT-AC1200G+

    Just done a side by side comparison of the 1200G+ with my old DSL-N55U and there isnt much in it speed wise with wifi. Getting around 100mbps on the N55U to clients and 100mbps upload and 240 mbps download on the 1200G+. The N55U is nice and stable with my VDSL as a router and I can download a...

    Internet dropping on AC1200G+

    I have managed to test it and it happens on a 1gig file but then you can repeat the 1 gig file and it is fine and connection stays up. I have changed the internet detection to DNS Probe, 2 and this means at least it reconnects quickly.
