    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    I only really need a couple of devices running at max speed. The other 10 devices in my home, 50Mbps download is more than enough. I worked out a backdoor to get maximum VPN speed without buying a new router. Go to LAN, Enable Manual Assignment Below that, choose the device (1) below which you...

    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    I did a factory default (Initialize) and it fixed it. Some new problems or maybe it's the same one? If I restart the ASUS router while my PC (LAN) is already on, the router will connect to the VPN server but my PC (shows ISP ip) will not connect to the VPN server unless I drop the LAN connects...

    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    I think it's bugged now. When I try to turn on 'Service state' it says connected but when I check my IP on 2 different browsers, it says my ISP IP? The VPN status page says 'connected' too...

    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    yes it's on! My NBN router that it connects to my ASUS (2-3 minutes) usually takes nearly 10 minutes to connect to the internet. I waited 20 minutes after resetting both routers but after 20 minutes if I look into the VPN settings, it says stopped.

    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    I noticed when I reboot both routers, my ASUS connections again in 2 minutes while my NBN takes 5-10 minutes. When the NBN connection again, my VPN on the ASUS router won't auto-connect (kill switch) how do I get it to connect again without manually doing so?

    Thank you. I turned the VPN off on the router where it caused the kill switch to kick in.

    Does the VPN kill switch work with Merlin?

    I signed up to ExpressVPN this week where their knowledge with Merlin is limited. Apart from this enquiry, their live support is fantastic with no waiting times. I found information about setting up a VPN with a kill switch here. https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/help/manuals/asuswrt-merlin When...

    Changed ISP, now devices are disconnecting?

    What channels is everyone on? Neighbour 1 = 2 Neighbour 2= 4 Router = 6-8 (Auto) Are the cameras on 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands? Are these on 'Auto' Control channels? Cameras are 2.4Ghz while my phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8 where I'm having the problem on 5 & 2.4 for my phone. It drops out. Channels...

    Changed ISP, now devices are disconnecting?

    It's mainly my security cameras disconnecting the most. I wasn't doing anything on my computer at the time when running these tests below (no CPU usage). Test 1: I notice the live feed isn't smooth anymore, it lags a bit when I view it on my computer. It never did this before, it was always...

    Changed ISP, now devices are disconnecting?

    There's no wifi on the modem from the ISP. Anything else? I find it disconnects half my devices after about 30-60 minutes.

    Changed ISP, now devices are disconnecting?

    Firmware Version:384.14_2 ASUS RT-AC5300 Hi, I changed to a new ISP yesterday where I received a new modem to plug into my ASUS RT-AC5300 (cable from the router to ASUS Wan port, same as before). I was on ADSL (10Mbps) but now I'm on NBN (100Mbps). For the last year, I never had a problem with...
