    Asus AiMesh Router w/ AES support?

    Yes, I meant AES-NI to support a VPN, but my understanding was that AES-NI was specific to Intel chips and Asus uses Broadcom and I couldn't find a name for the equivalent special processing unit on Broadcom. I can see how that may have been confusing. I'm thinking I will get the AX86U when it...

    Asus AiMesh Router w/ AES support?

    I'm looking to add an Asus AiMesh router for my multi-story house. We use the network for remote work w/ conferencing and streaming, but no gaming. We have a 400 Mbps service. I have my ONT in the basement w/ routing and basement wifi running on RT-N66U then a RT-AC1900P on my main floor with a...

    Recommended router for AiMesh and VPN?

    @SoFluffy thanks for the reply. This is exactly what I was looking for. I'll check out the AX86U. I have Merlin running on my existing Asus devices (which are all in a moving truck so I can't explore much just yet). I only have one cable from my utility room where the ONT is up to the main...

    Is it possible to defina a custom dhcp-range for Guest networks?

    I want to apply this solution, but I have a question about the script you provided. Your instructions say "reset, configure internet and vpn, then run this." Do I need to put this script somewhere to run on every boot or will the new bridges persist through a power loss?

    Seperate DHCP Range for Guest WiFi

    This is the part of the dnsmasq.conf that sets up the primary DHCP service. dhcp-range=lan,192.168.1.20,192.168.1.100,255.255.255.0,86400s dhcp-option=lan,3,192.168.1.1 dhcp-option=lan,6,8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4,0.0.0.0 dhcp-option=lan,15,meadow.local dhcp-option=lan,44,192.168.1.1...

    Seperate DHCP Range for Guest WiFi

    I realize now that the IP provided to ifconfig is the IP of the new interface associated w/ the guest radio. (I'm not sure why the other standard radios don't show up as having separate IPs when I do ifconfig, but whatever). I followed the instructions in the wiki post linked above and its not...

    Seperate DHCP Range for Guest WiFi

    I'm trying to assign my guest network SSID to a different DHCP range that aligns w/ my VPN exception (i.e. straight to WAN) range configuration. I'm following the wiki article here https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki/How-to-have-dedicated-DHCP-options-bind-to-a-specific-SSID%3F I...
