    RT-AC66U users in 2021, which firmware do you recommend others using?

    Thank you. That's more than enough reason to disable the web GUI on WAN. Fixing that now.

    RT-AC66U users in 2021, which firmware do you recommend others using?

    HTTPS only, I generated a new certificate, and I use good password measures, different passwords and usernames for each service like VPN, SSH etc. But I'll ask you naively like this then for arguments sake: "What's the harm?"

    Release [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374 LTS release 49E4

    Ah.. So much for that wireguard-go idea I had then. Yes, It's a AC66U.

    RT-AC66U users in 2021, which firmware do you recommend others using?

    Thank you all for your time and energy. I will stick with Merlin's last build for now until I've done enough research on the John fork. I've disabled any ports/services to the WAN interface that could be a risk, or changed ports for the critical services I'd like to use, like VPN and remote...

    Release [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374 LTS release 49E4

    @john9527 Pardon me for asking, which Linux kernel version is the latest release built on? I couldn't find any info in the changelogs or readme's in the download folder on one drive.

    Do you mean I should choose John's fork?

    RT-AC66U users in 2021, which firmware do you recommend others using?

    Care to elaborate on Fresh Tomato for a newcomer of that firmware family? I've used OpenWRT in the past but have fallen in love with the Streamlined experience of Asuswrt-Merlin. It's a lot easier to recover from any disastrous misconfiguration and alot simpler to understand than dealing with...

    RT-AC66U users in 2021, which firmware do you recommend others using?

    I got back my good old RT-AC66U again after a relative got to use it for a few years and I want to hear which firmware the rest of you use today. I am aware of the dropped support for Asuswrt-Merlin, which ended on 380.70 I believe, but it's feature rich despite being a security risk. There's...

    Extremely slow VPN Server transfer speeds even on AES-NI supported RT-AC86U. Out of ideas, please help.

    Well, I did some further testing from a windows laptop from another, external 100/100 Mbit network against my own 300/10 Mbit home internet, and I saw some improvements when using a windows laptop as a PPTP client (less encryption work for the cpu to work with in theory, and on the 'send files...

    I read about wireguard on their website just now and the technology sounds amazing, with minimal attack vectors and it's goal to be simple to use and all that stuff. But it's not yet consumer-ready from what I can see, which is probably why neither Asus stock firmware or Merlin firmware has it...

    Extremely slow VPN Server transfer speeds even on AES-NI supported RT-AC86U. Out of ideas, please help.

    I don't know how comfortable I would be with trying Wireguard if it's all CLI based. Too many things that could go wrong with my knowledge. I could look into trying to host a VPN server on a PC or (maybe a NAS?) to let my devices into the network. Are there any easy ways to get that up and...

    Extremely slow VPN Server transfer speeds even on AES-NI supported RT-AC86U. Out of ideas, please help.

    Sorry Xentrk. I forgot my manners. Well, everything is possible, but I thought I'd ask for help at this point as I've reached the extent of my own knowledge on the matter. Is Wireguard Web GUI 'setupable' or is that a part of CLI territory?

    Hi. I tried a quick IPSec server too last night but same story sadly, no better luck there. I don't know what that is or how to setup Wireguard server.

    Well, I have a Snapdragon 845, but I'll give it a quick try tomorrow morning on my laptop to follow the process of elimination, however I doubt the problem is there.

    Dude, please read the thread before you reply. I am not using any VPN providers, I'm trying to setup my own personal 'cloud' at home, using my Asus router's own VPN server software that's available in the Web GUI. I want to connect to my router from anywhere in the world and still be able to...
