    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    @RMerlin so I was looking, and I could not find it. Asus supports green wifi or at least eco mode. So my suggestion is to make the eco mode time based. So at night eco mode can kick in. And during day time full speed. Or maby activate by usage... If no usage then off or like... Any how...

    AC86U Heatsink Mod

    Iam not using spring load screws... I just replaced the therma pad for copper. It's running now for a few hours. And it has settled on 65 degrees. So that's a major plus. Coming from 80~90 degrees. I use 2 cable connections and a vpn. Including 2 old 68u's as mesh.

    AC86U Heatsink Mod

    @sorachan i just wanna say awesome you try this.... so i did same today, only copper mod on the cpu. The basic results are also cpu at 60 and the rest is same. Soooo best option would be to do the copper mod on the wifi but that is really fragile
