    Need Modem: Xfinity: 1Gb/s speed tier because no one watches TV anyway in my home..

    Hi, I trust you guys a lot with this stuff. We are dropping TV/Phone from the big C and just getting high speed internet. I want to buy my own modem but there are a lot of choices with Docis 3.1, 3.0 etc. I have an Asus Merlin 5300 and I plan on using that for awhile and then expand using...

    Cutting Cable, Will go with 1GB/s Xfinity: Would like suggestions on coverage and gaming

    What is the usual latency from mesh node to mesh node? I don't have a mesh system right now and was curious. As for running ethernet to the APs, I could probably do that. I don't think it is too hard in this house. Might just call an electrician to fish it. Until Covid is over I really...

    Cutting Cable, Will go with 1GB/s Xfinity: Would like suggestions on coverage and gaming

    Hi, So right now I have an Asus AC-5300 running Merlin. The house is Colonial with the family room on the side. So think Colonial house with an extra bottom half next to it. Roughly 3000+ with basement. The router is in the middle bedroom upstairs and covers most of the house OK, but the deck...

    Kid was on discord too much so blocked with opendns. Now I see freegate and let's encrypt

    I might just chat with her about it. It's a 3 day weekend due to the holiday. It's not the end of the world, I might just unblock it all and let her be.

    Kid was on discord too much so blocked with opendns. Now I see freegate and let's encrypt

    Part of the problem is I use a VPN for work as well. I don't think I can do it based on MAC address.

    Kid was on discord too much so blocked with opendns. Now I see freegate and let's encrypt

    I know right. Trust me, if I could I would take it offline but I can't because it is all done online now. That being said, kind of proud of her finding a way around OpenDNS!. She is going to an IT magnet school where she has learned Javascript, and a game programming environment. I can't...

    Kid was on discord too much so blocked with opendns. Now I see freegate and let's encrypt

    Hi, So my kid is a pretty good kid, but was on discord a lot. The school gives them a laptop and all of the homework is done online with microsoft office online type of stuff. So, I blocked discordapp.com with opendns. Thought this should do it. Then (And I'm kind of proud in a sense she...

    Lost internet (Comcast was down) all Wifi disconnected

    Hi Swistheater, I went WAN and set DHCP query frequency to Normal instead of aggressive. Will this help?

    Lost internet (Comcast was down) all Wifi disconnected

    Hi, So I have a AC5300 running Merlin 384.13. It has been very stable and can do anything I need it to do. Yesterday we lost internet from Comcast Xfinity. I couldn't even log into the router. Wireless or by wire. It was like it was trying so hard to connect that maybe it was using all the...

    LAN -> DHCP Server -> Can't put a Domain Name with '.' in it. (Solution Provided)

    Hi, I'm trying to setup a home lab and I'm trying to get DNS to resolve a server on my network. Well, I can't use the dhcp feature because it won't let me use a . character a part of the hostname....whatever. Maybe there is a better way to do this, in Tomato, I used to be able to just add an...

    See all Devices on Network?

    Hi, Network Map -> View List (Where the computer is) used to show all the devices on the network. I used to be able to see my other switches and things like that in the official firmware. In Merlin, I only see the active device. I'm not sure I'm using the right terminology. Anyway, is there...

    Question on disk/flash usage df -h output.

    That was what I was thinking...but after mucking around with all this stuff yesterday, I wasn't sure if maybe I wrote something to flash. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write back.

    Question on disk/flash usage df -h output.

    Hi, I ran df -h after trying to get rclone working...for what ever reason I run out of memory, but that is besides the point now as I was debugging to see if it cached something on disk as it was working. I noticed the /dev/root is 100% used. Is this normal or did I somehow get stuff saved in...
