    WAN DNS problems

    I'm running an AX88U with Merlin 386.3_2. I leave LAN DNS off, and use the WAN DNS settings instead. This works great, but not for an AC87U in bridge mode. This bridged router will include its own IP-address as DNS no matter what. First address is from AX88U and the second is always the...

    RT-AX88U enabled AX slows wifi extremely

    Why use Mesh at all? I would not because of security reasons like WPS.

    [Beta] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.14 Beta is now available

    Thanks for your answer. The question is about wpa2/3 combined. It makes little sense to have them combined. What is the benefit when WPA2 is still weaker?

    AX88 Primary WAN can be set to USB, can...

    Thank you very much for answering,,, I should maybe have opted for the AX89 instead... Too bad the AX88 doesn't have multigigabit ports. I will live with Link Aggregation, and I think it will sufice for now.

    I would love for a higher than 1 gigabit port,,, I allready use LAN port 1+2 in link aggregation for max 2 gigabit... USB may offer even higher bitrate 3-5 gigs?

    ...USB be set to LAN as well by changing the code? Is it a good idea btw? Both LAN and WAN wise? Any drawbacks?

    AX88 and AC88 both working fine regarding on/off leds and it's nice it stays off after a power outage. YOU ROCK Merlin! (I will not ask about any updates for AC87 haha---).
