    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    when you first had the router, did you perform hard reset? I bought from Amazon warehouse deal as used item and was experiencing very similar to yours. I was doing reset from gui and it kept on having issues on new flash. Had to do button combi ie WPS + power hard reset. Everything was working...

    Simple setup with Diversion, Skynet and CakeQos. All 3 set and forget. Skynet was eyeopener with some 350K IP's banned and 3K inbound blocks since installed 2 weeks back.

    [Beta] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 Beta / 384.13_9 is now available

    I'm seeing some crazy CPU usage on AC86U with latest beta 1. Only have diversion and cake-qos installed. Don't know if this is normal but apart from that everything seems to be working. Nothing out of ordinary on sys log. Edit: ignore. It's diversion loggin when enabled causing CPU spikes.

    wan-start script also run on wan-stop

    bump any help would help :cool:. Looks like the issue is vpn provider using port 53/80. I've tried another provider using port 1194 and no issues. Any workaround to this?

    x3mRouting x3mRouting ~ Selective Routing for Asuswrt-Merlin Firmware

    is there a fool proof idiot guide on how to do this thing :D? Gone back to last 10 pages and now my head is hurting. I've installed option 2 and can't add any client using GUI. I can see the client list on Source IP dropdown but nothing happens on click. If i manually input Source IP then it...

    wan-start script also run on wan-stop

    I'm having issues with VPN which when toggled off, wan disconnects. Reboot fixes but found from here that I can get internet connection back using GUI so saves the hassle to reboot & long wait. Looks like this script may be the solution. Sorry for dumb question but how do I use this script? copy...

    wan-start & wan-event

    Router gets disconnected from internet when VPN switched is toggled to OFF. Searched the forum and found that need to use wan-start script to call wan-event on 384.15 FW. Can anyone put out the code so that I can just copy/paste :) many thanks.

    Selective Routing with Asuswrt-Merlin

    Thanks very much again. Yes working perfectly. I tested first with removing port 80 and couldn't access box. Then removed 8001, can access but won't stream as expected. iptables --nVL PREROUTING --line -t mangle output:

    Selective Routing with Asuswrt-Merlin

    Excellent bud. Will test it and report back soon. I found one script from here on post #51 posted on Nov 2013 which looks to be working. But yours look much cleaner and shorter. regards,

    DHCP failing to give DNS to clients in Merlin 380.68_4

    Not sure if you managed to fix it but had similar issues when I flashed previous builds. Can't find it but think the recommendation is to do "factory restore" once in every 3rd FW flash.
