    DHCP advice needed for 4G modem to own router

    Cheers. I may actually ask the manufacturers as they are very approachable. Perhaps we can get Bridge Mode added.

    DHCP advice needed for 4G modem to own router

    The 4G modem is sold by OutdoorRouter and is described as a Category-6 MIMO 4G router with 2.4GHz wifi built in. Their model number is EZR30-Y6U. It runs OpenWRT. I can't find a setting for Bridge Mode in it but I can certainly disable wireless and DHCP on the modem/router thus allowing the...

    DHCP advice needed for 4G modem to own router

    I am a bit out of my depth setting up my 4G modem to integrate with my wireless router and would really appreciate some advice. The equipment I am replacing is the usual FTTC modem in bridge mode through to my ASUS AC86U which then goes on to my (non-PoE) 16-port switch. I now want to use an...

    Simple QoS advice needed please

    Yay! It works, thank you. I can confirm that the HomePod is counted as Streaming. With Adaptive QoS on, Streaming set to top priority, the HomePod set to Highest and all other clients set to Default, I get the behaviour I expect. When a new track is requested, the HomePod gets 100% of the...

    Simple QoS advice needed please

    Thanks - I saw your tool earlier and will have a look if the HomePod struggles. I can easily test it... start playback then go watch a youtube video. I can watch the bandwidth monitor to see which gets priority when tracks are requested.

    Simple QoS advice needed please

    Thanks for the advice but I need clearer instructions than that I am afraid. Adaptive QoS does not have any limits to define, it is Traditional QoS that has those settings. Adaptive QoS will keep iTunes and YouTube in the same priority category if I select "Streaming". If I leave Adaptive QoS...

    Simple QoS advice needed please

    A quick update to this... I have watched the wireless traffic on the Traffic Monitor and the HomePod requests the next track in a single burst rather than in increments. Here is what I mean... Current download speed has risen to 9.0Mbps due to a reset last night which was unexpected but not...

    Simple QoS advice needed please

    Hello folks - I would appreciate some advice on using QoS on my AC86U running Merlin 382.1_2. I have never had to use QoS before as I just left all my devices to get on with it as the router saw fit but I now need to prioritize one device over all others. The situation is that we have a...

    RT-AC87u firmware development

    I too have an 87U but I find the ASUS router model numbers confusing. I would be interested in knowing what is the "current" family of routers that ASUS is actively supporting rather than the previous models that happen to be still receiving support since it is reasonable to assume they will...

    Plex WOL

    My situation is different in that I have a NAS in the house which holds the movies and Plex. It sleeps until needed and auto-sleeps when not used. I use Linux as my main PC and there is a tool for Linux called Powerwake. I have created a desktop icon for "powerwake (MAC address of the NAS)" and...

    Recommended 3G/4G routers to use with AC87U?

    I briefly used the O2 Huawei 4g dongle while waiting for my Openreach connection to be installed (7 weeks) and was pleased with it. You can pick them up on a data-only sim. Normally they have a £40 fee for issuing the dongle (£16 up front, £1 a month till paid off but you can pay it off early...

    Site Survey timeout?

    I am using 380.67 on my AC87U and I am wondering if there is a timeout for the Site Survey process? I am now in a very quiet rural area with no near neighbours and none of my devices can pick up even a glimmer of nearby wifi. When I click Wireless - Site Survey - Scan it displays the expected...

    Can I bridge wifi and LAN to update my NAS?

    I need some advice on whether I can bridge my wireless and lan connections to allow me to use my wifi from my main PC to update a wired device. I have an unRAID NAS running headless wired to my network switch. I have a desktop PC with a choice of Linux or Windows with both a wired connection to...

    RT-AC87U running hot.

    I had the dehumidifier on to help dry some laundry so that helped warm the room somewhat but perhaps I should calibrate the sensor. It is just a digital Air temp sensor from my Aquaero6 and I have never calibrated it - it just helps measure air vs water delta for fan control. EDIT : Checked the...

    Silly question but are you using the correct version of the AC66U firmware? There are two models...
