    AC86U sometimes powers completely off during reboot

    Whatever happened with this? As I mentioned elsewhere, a reliable reboot may be the most important feature of any router. WTF.

    is reboot schedule still broken on RT-AC86U with latest Merlin firmware 386.2_6?

    For many years, there has been a bug on RT-AC86U, where the "reboot" scheduler shuts down the router, but does not actually reboot it. My routers are over 3,000 miles away, so this is an absolute disaster. It happened to me a couple times and I had to send someone to physically unplug them. I...

    is it possible to install python on my ASUS Merlin router?

    Isn't this the right forum? For me it says ">Asuswrt-Merlin" at the top of this forum

    how to get a list of named clients ("Bobs-iPhone") from shell to detect visitors

    From the ASUS shell, how can I get a list of connected clients (by device name, for example "Bobs-iPhone" is how they usually show up) as well as MAC address? This is similar to just looking at the Network Map in the ASUS UI, but I need to know on an hourly basis, when clients are there and...

    3.80 to 3.84 dirty remote upgrade worth it?

    This is a really good idea actually. Routers are cheap after all. Thanks for the tip!

    3.80 to 3.84 dirty remote upgrade worth it?

    I am pretty careful. WAN is https only of course, I would never use plain http. And ssh is using keys only, I never use passwords. I do think that unless there is a crazy exploit, these methods should be pretty secure. Is there any evidence of exploits for these?

    3.80 to 3.84 dirty remote upgrade worth it?

    It sounds like you think having WAN access enabled is pretty risky. Is that true? I always have WAN access as well as SSH enabled. I also have VPN as well, but I don't need VPN for all tasks, usually WAN or SSH does it. Are there really exploits on 380 to hack through the WAN or SSH?

    3.80 to 3.84 dirty remote upgrade worth it?

    I'm on the RT-AC88U. I wasn't aware of anything called 42.E7 but it looks like it's for earlier than 380. This is not a mission critical router but it would still really suck to have it go down. To get to it physically, I have to fly 3000 miles and then drive 2 hours one way ;) Nothing worse...

    3.80 to 3.84 dirty remote upgrade worth it?

    My remote router is running OK on Merlin 3.80, but I wish some bugs were fixed. For example, automatic reboot hangs and doesn't work. Also, adjusting the bandwidth limiter causes a crash requiring manual reset. Problem is this is a remote router approximately 3,000 miles away. And now during...
