    I had the ExpressVPN setup on my old router AC87U. The AX88U running the Merlin 386.3_2 is different to the AC87U firmware. I wonder if anyone can help me to set it up.

    Upgrading RT-AC87U from Merlin 380.65_2 to the latest 384.13_10

    Last time I upgraded the RT-AC87U was quite a few years ago. In the last few months, the Wi-Fi connections of 5Ghz networks are very weak. The wired connections are fine. I have not moved the router, nor I added any furniture that may block the router. I'm wondering if this has anything to do...

    Slow transfers over Ethernet RJ45 Cat 6 cable with RT-AC87U

    The interesting part is on the second screenshot. When I cancel the backup, the data transfer is uninterpreted??? What the backup program should do is access the router and delete the partial backup file. What actually happens is that it transferring uninterrupted data for quite a few...

    Slow transfers over Ethernet RJ45 Cat 6 cable with RT-AC87U

    Tx for all the replays. I observed the same dropouts using slower computers. It looks the stronger the PC CPU the shorter the transfers are because more data is capable to be transferred and the router CPU cannot cope with it. Yes NAS will surely help...

    Slow transfers over Ethernet RJ45 Cat 6 cable with RT-AC87U

    When doing backup to a portable HDD connected to router USB3 using ToDo backup, my maximum transfer speed over Ethernet with RJ-45 Cat 6 20 meter cable on 1Gb connection is maximum 420Mbs. When copying large file (10Gb) from PC (i9-9900K CPU with 64Gb memory and Samsung 1Tb M.2 NVMe 970 EVO...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 380.67 is now available

    I have the RT_AC87U as main router running Asus-Merlin380.65 and an old RT-N56U that I want to connect as secondary router with different IP. I am wondering if I can flash the Asus-Merlin 380.67 on the RT-N56U?

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 380.65 is now available

    Upgraded AC87U from 378.56-2 to 380.65-2 with all the resets possible. MU-MIMO enabled, Airtime Fairness enabled. MIMO works great. After 12 days some of my devices lost the 5G network. Restarted router. all fine again. With the 378.54 this happened every 6-7 days.

    RT-AC87U with PCE-AC88

    I am wondering if there is any advantage in network speeds by using the RT-AC87U with PCE-AC88 over PCE-AC68. I am using Marlin 380.65_2 with MIMO enabled.
