    Best new router for Merlin?

    Good catch. I glossed right over that when reading the change log two weeks ago.

    Best new router for Merlin?

    On the Asus website they have the RT-AX86U product page and if you got to Tech specs they also show a RT-AX86S which appears to be a neutered AX86U. I'm assuming it would be less expensive but note that it is not listed on Merlin's website as a supported model at this time. Another less...

    New AX86U Settings

    On my AC86U if I set the modulation scheme to MCS 11 my Pixel 6 Pro will get a link speed of 1083 vs 866 on MCS 9. This is the first AC device I've owned that took advantage of MCS 11.

    Is the RT-AC68U V4 HND?

    It's amazing how long the 68U had endured albeit a reincarnation with the V4. I still use a Best Buy 68U as my RV router (USB tether) on weekend camping excursions.

    spdMerlin Is this normal?

    Are you using the "automatic" server selection? If so you are probably just hitting a server now and then that isn't fast enough for gigabit connections causing your results to fluctuate.

    Solved OpenVPN server issue

    Well for whatever reason I am still able to connect to my ovpn server after updating the OpenVPN for Android app. I was getting ready to apply the work around but thought I'd try to connect first and it just connected.

    Dual WAN using Xfinity Wifi?

    This is the solution I would recommend. I have had success using GL-iNet routers with xfinity wifi.

    86u openVpn server speeds not 200 Mbit

    I concur. I was/am getting similar results with PIA.

    Help with changing outgoing TTL on Asus WRT

    I believe chmod a+rx /jffs/scripts/* needs to be done after creating the script.

    Best way to replace USB

    I would personally start fresh with the new USB stick but that's probably because I don't know my way around Linux and have no idea how to transfer the data to the new stick :) Factory resetting your router and starting fresh is never a bad idea. If you haven't done a reset in a while now...

    Diversion Diversion block stadia?

    I would try some basic troubleshooting. Disable Diversion for a few days and see if your problem persist. In my opinion if Diversion was causing an issue it would be constant and not intermittent.

    Is the VPN client on your PC using openvpn or wireguard?

    RT-AC86U Beamforming

    MU-MIMO seemed to be working based on my testing results a few years ago.

    Airtime Fairness question

    I'm old school. Is WiFi 4 ac or n? I think where airtime fairness helps the most is with really old/slow clients still on g.

    spdMerlin spdMerlin - v4.x - speedtest and bandwidth monitoring

    4.1.1 works just fine on my 68U (384.19) which is using USB for the WAN via a cell phone. I did nothing special. Just installed and let it rip. It is also working on VPN1 using openvpn.
