    Slow Internet after enabling Traffic Monitoring/Analyzer (RT-AC68U)

    I've been looking at the traffic monitoring feature in the ASUSWRT software as well. One thing that I've noticed is that it seems to be limited to TCP / UDP traffic, e.g. when an IPSEC tunnel comes up on a node, it no longer gets counted. I'm wondering if VNSTAT is the answer to this issue.

    Slower speeds on RT-AC68U compared to ISP supplied router, especially upload on a wired conn.

    I'm thinking that the speed test in the router is single threaded, i.e. not attempting multiple streams from different sources like the web client and Windows app are.

    Strange issue losing Internet Connection

    I do not see that option. I will assume that it's removed in the Merlin fork so that ASUS doesn't get reports that may be caused by Merlin changes.

    Strange issue losing Internet Connection

    As I said above, I already made the behavior go away. It isn't necessary to go bare metal to fix it. If I had a separate test network I might do that and try to create a tight reproducer of the problem, by returning to bare-metal, turning on Dual WAN with auto-failover then disabling Dual WAN...

    Strange issue losing Internet Connection

    I have a RT-AC1900P running current version of Merlin firmware. Connected to an AT&T BGW 210 gateway in IP Passthrough mode. Has worked reliably for years. I also have an Ooma VOIP device with T-Mobile LTE backup, on which you're allowed to do some non-VOIP traffic. I found out that the...

    SECURITY: LAN-side security hole - mitigation

    Oops. Thanks. It didn't sink in that January 2015 wasn't this year (still living in the past, I guess). I'm running the firmware that was available when I set up the thing back in September. I will install the latest version as soon as I have the time. Until then, it's powered off.

    SECURITY: LAN-side security hole - mitigation

    I believe that I have been hacked. There's really only one user using this router, and she reported to me yesterday that she was being asked by the ISP for a login. While the screen was a pretty nice forgery of the ISP's style, the ISP never asks for a login. I clicked on "forgot password"...

    I've looked through the forums, and I cannot find a real answer to this: What, exactly (and please use human readable terms, as opposed to configuration script lines), does turning on the IPTV setting do? I get that it sets up a VLAN and I see that I can play with IGMP peeking and routing...
