    [384.18_Alpha Builds] Testing all variants

    I just noticed that my AC68U in media bridge mode got some weird Open NAT option that wasn't there before. I don't know if it's supposed to be there or not? Judging by the red frame it must be a gaming router thing...

    The rmerlin donation thread.

    Donated as well. Started using Asuswrt-Merlin back in the N66U days, and stuck with it for a long time, then migrated to Shibby's tomato due to better support of USB LTE modems. After I got some more Asus gear, I used official firmware because back then only that had Ai-mesh support. Now all but...

    Stability issue with RT-AC68U Firmware 384.15 Media Bridge mode?

    I also have RT-AC68U in Media Bridge mode, at fixed channel 5Ghz. Configured to be in bridge mode directly from new setup wizard. I found that after a reboot it has issues with reaching outside of LAN. For example ping reports that "Network is unreachable". The workaround I found...

    [Beta] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.16 beta (and 384.13_5) are available

    Once I saw that you maghuro succeeded in in compiling the newest code for AC86U, I attempted the same to learn something. That was an interesting experience, specially since I've never even used git before, and my Linux knowledge is pretty basic. :) I don't know what magic binary blobs Asus put...

    Asus-Merlin 384.15: amtm won't run, just hangs

    Had the same issue on AC68U dirty flashed from latest official ASUS. Hanged on theme selection, processor usage skyrocketed, and after about 10 secs I got a segmentation fault. In my case reset to factory and jffs reformat helped though. Also I made sure to give it ample time between making...

    RT-AX88U snmpd - mini Guide

    Thanks for sharing. Before I wasn't even aware that mini-snmp exists. I set it up on an AX88U and on an old N66U running stock Asus as well. It's a bit limited, as expected, but provides the basic status and traffic information. Now I can check on all my home devices for no reason at all. :)

    Unbound unbound_manager (Manager/Installer utility for unbound - Recursive DNS Server)

    First of all, thanks a lot for your time investigating this. I have copied your recommended settings for my AX88U and everything runs really nicely at lightning speed. On a side note, before installing Unbound, every so often I used to run Steve Gibson's DNS Benchmark to find out the fastest...

    ASUS RT-AC86U Firmware version

    No issues so far after over 24h. Running AC86U with AC68U as AiMesh node, and a venerable N66U in Media Bridge mode. Hopefully it will be just as stable as previous 81049 which was the most stable firmware for me up to date. By stable I mean it shouldn't do anything weird by itself when left...

    Asuswrt-Merlin is out

    RT-N66U. Firmware: Confirming the em build range is at least as good as the old SDK5 builds. Possibly even slightly better; checking the maximum range with my cell phone outside my house allowed me to go at least 10 meters further than I ever did (2.4 GHz). The result of...
