    Use Merlin cfg on stock firmware (aimesh issues)

    If this is true, why does RMerlin recommend running nodes on stock firmware?

    Problems connecting node to main AiMesh router using Merlin firmware. Should I go back to Asus stock?

    Use the latest Merlin on your router, you can use Merlin or stock on your node (note, rMerlin recommends using stock on your node)

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 is now available

    I have Comcast, how would I know or test if this is happening and whether or not I would need to set this switch on? Are there any negatives to just switching it on?

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 is now available

    This was happening to me. Toggle the "Enable DNS-based Filtering" to Off (Apply) then ON (apply) then it worked for me (I was using selections not custom though)

    Aimesh stock to merlin

    RMerlin used to recommend running stock on nodes (I haven't seen him comment in a long time so I don't know if he still does). I believe this is because the AiMesh code is all closed, so he doesn't touch it. And the stock firmware is usually on a slightly newer version than Merlin.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 beta is now available

    2) Would VPN2 and VPN3 need to be set to ON? Or could I leave them OFF ("Stop Client"), and the router would switch them ON automatically if VPN1 goes down and it is looking to enforce policy rule no 2? The yes to question 2 could go either way. Is that yes to the first part of the question or...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 beta is now available

    Quick testing on Beta3 (dirty upgrade) dbfafff825 openvpn: only set error state in nvram on fatal config errors seems to have fixed my VPN issue we discussed and seems to be working as expected now.

    amtm amtm step-by-step install guide - L&LD

    OK, this is definitely not best practice, but I just dirty upgrade, no dismount USBs (I have 2 attached) nor disconnect. It usually just works. So, I wouldn't worry about it. Been doing this on RT-AC68U and later RT-AC86U). Also, every now and then (say every 10 dirtys), I'll do a rebuild...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 beta is now available

    I am having issues with VPN (note, I'm in contact with RMerlin with logs, etc). He mentioned that it could be a script interfering (although he reviewed my running scripts and didn't think any would interfere). I was wondering if there is a way to start the router without scripts (similar to...
