    RT-AC68U Internal Storage usage

    Thanks! Not sure how l missed 68U when check on Asus site:) but also just realized that the latest firmware does not support RT-AX68U yet...will have to wait for the new firmware to decide the upgrade purchase...

    RT-AC68U Internal Storage usage

    Okey...I guess either I would ignore that alert or choose a newer model to upgrade...if I may ask, which model would be recommended for upgrade? Donot need the latest wifi standard but want to balance performance, reliability and cost... RT-AX86U is a good candidate? I don’t need many lan ports...

    RT-AC68U Internal Storage usage

    Thanks, those did help get rid of the JFFS alert but the NVRAM usage is still high...Do I need to factory reset again? I only run this RT-AC68U in AP mode with couple USB harddrives as a not-so-frequently used file server...

    RT-AC68U Internal Storage usage

    I recently noticed these two alerts (screenshots below) from my RT-AC68U...It is possible that they might be there for long time... I did factory reset of the device and restored with my configuration backup....I then did format the JFFS. But the alerts still show up...The running firmware...

    Need some help troubleshoot NTFS USB drive issue on Asus Merlin.

    Why I should not be used Hitatchi on USB2, because that port doesnot provide enough power? Also I think I still experience the drive disappear issue with the Seagate on USB3. So I swapped seagate to USB2 and hitachi on USB3. Will see if that changes...Did not experience much difference on...

    Need some help troubleshoot NTFS USB drive issue on Asus Merlin.

    Good information to know. I think the two USB drives are Hitachi HTS727550A9E364 and Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex STAA1000101 on USB2 and USB 3 respectively. The Hitachi one does need 900mA for spinup but can not find relevant information of the Seagate...

    Need some help troubleshoot NTFS USB drive issue on Asus Merlin.

    Donot have a spare power supplies works for the router...would hope that is not the cause. Would be easier to replace a hard drive...But if it was the cause, which model would be recommended as a replacement? Or I can just order a replacement power supply ?

    Another router? Or another power supply? This router is the only Asus product I have.

    Need some help troubleshoot NTFS USB drive issue on Asus Merlin.

    I think the issue is with the USB drive on USB 3 port. If the drive is excluded from spin down, then the issue is gone...the mystery part is I have been using the same setup for last three or four years without issue... The drive was also scanned without any error under windows 10...

    Good to know there is issue with 2.4GHz wireless and USB3... I might try to exclude the disk from spin down feature and see what happens...A little bit difficult to format the disk...

    Need some help troubleshoot NTFS USB drive issue on Asus Merlin.

    Will try to exclude the disk from spin down. But this issue only started recently (maybe after the recent firmware upgrade...).
