    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.8 is now available for specific models

    I would be interested to hear more about your experience with AXE16000 - do you have anything on the 10GbE ports? How is the speed? Also very important for me - how is the speed on VPN?

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.8 is now available for specific models

    What do you mean just WiFi 6, AXE16000 has WiFi 6E!

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.4 is now available

    That is a very interesting review and the speed is very impressive (definitely better than what I am getting on OpenVPN on AX88U or with an older external-compiled wireguard module), but that router (ASUS ZenWiFi XT8) is rather very modern with 4 core * 1.5 GHz or so, even the AXE11000 right now...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.4 is now available

    Possible but weird, since on the AC86U that problem DID show on an earlier update, but at that point it was enough to erase last user and then it worked. On the first AX88U nothing like that was visible before and on the other non-updated AX88U I have like 20 OpenVPN users so I will need to do...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.4 is now available

    > "HND firmware now include both the kernel module and userspace tool for Wireguard. There is no built-in support for Wireguard at this time, these are only included for end-user or third party usage. Asus is still working on their own implementation, which isn't available yet." You might be...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.4 is now available

    A bug with 386.4 that I was able to repeat now on two different routers (AX88U and AC86U) and I am holding a 3rd one that is more important (also AX88U) a few days just to be certain nothing bigger than that shows up. The confirmed problem is with users in the OpenVPN server(s) - after the...

    Solved Text Notifications on Android Phones

    Is it possible that you had some weird value inside some of the "WiFi / Professional" settings, stuff maybe related to DTIM interval or similar (this is the way devices come out of sleep to check if some packets are waiting on WiFi).

    DDNS with Double NAT not update IP

    Also be aware that in some parts of the world the asuscomm.com servers are in a very, very poor state right now.

    Failed resolving hostname ns1.asuscomm.com

    I believe that there is an issue anyway - initially asuscomm.com was working when the router has last registered, then at some point the asuscomm.com servers went down but the router did not know it, and now that those are back it does not know that it has to go there and register again - it...

    Any comments/news on the FragAttacks vulnerabilities?

    This is the site with more details about it: https://www.fragattacks.com/ Also I remember seeing some mention of FragAttacks in some very, very recent ASUS firmware release.

    Another VPN question

    You can probably use either one of the two options, differences might be in protocols and ports used. You should absolutely check first that everything works with your OpenVPN from some network other than your normal ISP. You should also check in advance how to setup things so that ALL traffic...

    VPN (server) performance?

    Sorry, I have just edited my post to show that I was testing the speed of the VPN servers in the router itself - I do not have reasons to believe it will be a huge lot different with it as a client but indeed in that case the first speed limit will be the (commercial or not) other VPN server.

    VPN (server) performance?

    I know this might be a very tricky subject but I am trying to understand if I am doing something wrong (and if so what). I am testing on AX88U (currently with 386.2). WAN is 1Gbps optical (and I get around 950 Mbps up / 950 Mbps dn in most tests against a close enough server) but for some of...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    Thank you for Beta2, uneventful update from 386.1_2 on AX88U. Will try to keep an eye on speed over OpenVPN and wireguard.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    YES, thank you, that was it - it was actually hinted in the log that the issue was that it was considering those as the same client but the first time when I tried I was too much in a hurry :rolleyes: As a somehow related question - how is OpenVPN speed now? To me it looks like the CPU load...
