    RT-AC68U can't get past login screen after 386.1 update

    Update: After a long wait, the page actually managed to load so the GUI seems to work now. Another thread mentioned issues with QoS (on older firmware) so I disabled mine just in case. Hopefully the issue will not return. In any case, it would be good to know if others have experienced this...

    RT-AC68U can't get past login screen after 386.1 update

    I just updated my RT-AC68U to 386.1 from 384.19. The router seems to works fine, SSH too, but I can't get past the login screen on the GUI via HTTP (I don't have HTTPS configured). I tried power cycling the router, no luck. Also tried "service restart_httpd" from SSH, and each time I do it I get...

    Best way to do DDNS updates when behind another (DSL) router?

    Good point, Merlin! I thought about this but went the lazy way. I now realize that it'd be much more efficient to store the external IP in a shell variable, check every 10 min or so if it's changed, and only then performing the DDNS update if necessary.

    Best way to do DDNS updates when behind another (DSL) router?

    Thanks for all the helpful replies, guys! I ended up creating a cron job that updates the DDNS records every hour. I use afraid.org which provides you with a simple URL that you just need to access and it automatically get the IP from the request and updates the host. @Cake, I see you've added...

    Best way to do DDNS updates when behind another (DSL) router?

    Well, I'm no networking expert, so forgive my ignorance in the terminology. I need to use DSL router, obviously, because that's how I get my internet connection. But I've connected the Asus router to the DSL one via a cable and have assigned a static IP internal to it and set forwarding for all...

    Best way to do DDNS updates when behind another (DSL) router?

    Thanks for your reply! I'm not that much concerned about obtaining the external IP. I know this can be done in many ways. I'm more concerned about *when* the DDNS record will be updated. This should ideally happen when the external IP changes, but in my case the DSL router is responsible for...

    Best way to do DDNS updates when behind another (DSL) router?

    Hi, My new awesome Asus RT-AC68U router, running Merlin 378.50, sits behind a DSL router. The DSL router is from Sky and only supports DynDNS as a DDNS service. So I must use the Asus router to do custom DDNS updates. I want to use afraid.org as a DNS host, so this means writing a ddns-start...
