    AI protection shows no attacks

    Ac86u with Merlin firmware 386.1.2. Under ai protection all are on but no incidents are shown. Is the ai protection broken in the Merlin firmware? My att gateway security protection shows ip addresses trying to be accessed by the ASUS router.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Is anyone else seeing WiFi speedtest results reduced by 1/2? I used to see 200 plus down and up. Now below 100? Switched to my att gateway WiFi and I get 200 plus. Ac86u main, ac1900p in aimesh mode. Edit this appears to happen only when I’m connected through the ac1900p (ac68u).

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    After getting up this morning, all appears to be working. CPU activity looks strange. It will peak and drop, peak and drop. I’ll look at it again when I’m home and can log in to the router page.I have not updated my ac68u in aimesh node. I’ll do that and read the change log later today as well.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    Went from 384.19 to beta 5. Ac86u. Restarted the 86u by powering it off. WiFi works and wired internet works. But I cannot access the router webpage and the ASUS router app shows no wireless devices connected. Connected to an att gateway. From the first post it seems like I should factory reset...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    I read that. Just confirming that was still correct. Considering the security issue was found after the thread was started.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    For future reference. When the full Merlin 386 firmware is released, can I go from 384.19 to 386? Or would I need to download the ASUS 386 and then go to the Merlin version?

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    I currently have 384.19 on my routers. Is it still safe to go straight from 384.19 to the 386 beta4? Or would I be better off waiting for the release of 386 as non beta version?

    High ram usage

    Looking at my router stats I see my ASUS ac86u is using 75-85% of its ram. I also see high upload from my nest doorbell camera. 4 gb per day. Is the high ram usage related to the high upload? I assume the high upload from the nest is the data from the camera. Any tips to lower the ram usage...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    Thank you. That is what I have always done. I presume this is a safe way to update the firmware?

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    Excuse my ignorance. What is a dirty flash?

    Lowering WiFi power

    Thanks. Set 2.4 to fair from balance. Other options were performance, good, balance, fair and power saving. I left 5g on performance.

    Lowering WiFi power

    I was walking through my subdivision today and noticed I was still connected to my home WiFi about 300 feet from my home. Is there a ways to turn down the WiFi signal so it won’t connect from so far away? AC 86U as my mesh router with an AC 1900p as a satellite.

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.15 (and 384.13_4) are now available

    Should I factory reset both my routers after the firmware update? AC86U as the main router and an AC1900P as an Aimesh node. Both with the previous Merlin firmware version. If yes, how do I factory reset the node?

    Setting up aimesh

    It’s not managing anything yet. I may attempt setting up a vlan for our nest doorbell. But that will be later. The doorbell isn’t installed yet.

    Setting up aimesh

    It’s a managed switch. Not sure what l2 means. https://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/8-10-16-24-48-port-GbE-Smart-Managed-Switch-GS1900-Series/features
