    Wireless 5GHz takes 10 minutes to be ready

    IIRC, on my RTA86U and 384.17 with SmartConnect Disabled, when Channel was set to auto, there would also be a checkbox next to the drop-down that you could enable that said "Also use DFS channels". On 384.18, I don't see that checkbox anymore and I don't think I'm mis-remembering that option...

    Help: Run scripts on AI Mesh node

    Check out /opt/share/syslog-ng/examples You need to enable one of two types of processing methods (but not both) but HOW (and when) each facility is processed logged (and where) is more complicated. There are a lot better resources out there than anything I can type up but it basically...

    Help: Run scripts on AI Mesh node

    Yes, but it must be getting overwritten by the AI Mesh sync code (called at node reboot, or a change on the primary). I assume that when a change is made on the primary node that is something that the mesh code (AMAS?) knows it needs to keep in sync, a static config 'blob' (not a delta) is sent...

    Help: Run scripts on AI Mesh node

    I have 2 RT-AC86Us both running 384.18. On my main router I'm running syslog-ng and have enabled it to listen remotely, On the remote node I have to manually set nvram "log_ipaddr=192.168.1.1" and restart syslogd after each reboot since this value is not retained, which is my problem. I...

    Connected but "No Internet, secured"...

    There's a number of variables here but a few questions.... Did you restore your 68U configuration to the 86U? If so, that's is big "DON'T" and the source of all your problems. Based on the face you can manually chose between 2.4 and 5, you must have separate SSIDs and NOT using Smart Connect...

    Traffic Stats - Which to believe?

    Well I'll be darned - just assumed it was there and I never enabled it. Observation noted. +1

    Traffic Stats - Which to believe?

    In short - no. I never got a clear answer in this thread nor a lot of other searching. I think the variables (models, QOS types, HW accel (two types), per-IP monitoring, make it difficult for a single clear answer why, I just wish I knew how things worked under the hood so I could do real...

    modmon - WebUI for monitoring cable modem stats

    SOOO Disappointed. My ISP's Arris 8200a has been running some really dusty firmware "D31CM-PEREGRINE-1.1.1.0-GA-03-NOSH" for years. It did not have the /getRouterStatus URL. This morning they FINALLY did the major upgrade to "AB01.01.009.36.02_022720_183.0A.NSH" but sadly it still doesn't...

    Protected Management Frames

    I have a couple of cheap USB 2.0 wi-fi cards based on an older RealTek / MediaTek chipsets (81xx IIRC) ('n' standard, 2.4Ghz only) which have not had new drivers for a long time. These don't like PMF set to capable.... it does 'connect' but it doesn't work - DHCP will timeout and the os will...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 and 384.13_10 is now available

    Just pointing out something - we sometime chase down event log noise even when our devices are working properly. By Disabling a (power savings) feature in the wireless section on the router, it will negatively affect battery life of every device that uses Wi-Fi. When my iPhones start causing...

    scribe - syslog-ng and logrotate installer

    I suspect this is outside the current capabilities and maybe even the roadmap of scribe, but I'd like to pull in the logs for my other Mesh nodes and have them presented in the main router's UI. Pre scribe and syslog-ng there was a open to forward log levels > 'x' to a syslog server. Can...

    RT-AC86U Watchdog & mtd9 scan

    I noticed this in my logs yesterday. Never seen it before. RT-AC86U with 384.18_beta1 It seems that something went wrong and the watchdog daemon caught it, but I'm bewildered by the actions taken. Perhaps a listing of the function <> partition mapping can shed some light? Is mtd9 really...

    Withdrew from 'Privacy' on RT-AC68U speed boost

    I've noticed this with one specific app. Its called "Wifi Sweet Spots". Quite useful at times, however I think it does something to the router it cannot handle well. This appears to test 'pure' wifi speed vs. internet speeds. I dont know exactly how it works but the traffic does not...
