    RT-AX86 Series

    Yes, that is more in line with the spread I was expecting between the two models: not the ridiculous, mimimal $30 difference we have in the US. On top of that, this price difference was artificially created by bumping up the price of the RT-AX86U and slotting in the crippled model (RT-AX86S) at...

    Oh no, this is turning into yet another temperature thread....

    [ 386.4 alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s)

    I don't have the exact same DNS error, but similar problem with this upgrade from 386.4 Alpha 1: I have only IP4 enabled, and my DDNS provider is DNS-O-Matic. This has always worked perfectly in the past, but now I am seeing the yellow exclamation point (on the main index page near the top with...

    Release Asus RT-AC86U 3.0.0.4.386.45956 2021/11/25

    Yes, if I remember correctly, the accumulated stats from TrendMicro are stored in the jffs partition, so it will require the "full reset and initialize" to format and clear that partition (and thus the stats) when using stock Asus firmware. Or, if using the Rmerlin firmware, the separate...

    Upgrade from AC86U to AX86U or AX88U?

    Perhaps slightly off-topic, but MSRP and retail price (at Best Buy anyway) on the RT-AX86U went from ~$250 to ~$280 about a month ago, to coincide with the introduction of the slightly crippled version (at ~$250) of the RT-AX86S, filling in the former price point. Wish I had known that was going...

    Release RT-AX86U 386.45934

    Or perhaps Asus should just update their website to eliminate all references to versions and/or OS in the situations when and where it is absolutely not applicable, such as BIOS/firmware updates.

    [ 386.4 alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s)

    Yes, the choices will be hard. I have been tempted to pick up an RT-AX86U, and they have been available in my nearby BestBuy, but...they also just went up about 12% in price about two weeks ago ($250 to $280 USD now). Not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but annoying for an item I am on the...

    [ 386.4 alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s)

    Hmmm... I almost reached for the "Like" button, but that didn't seem appropriate at all in this case as this can hardly be interpreted as good news, but I wanted to acknowledge reading it nevertheless. I can only echo what @heysoundude wrote about keeping your (@RMerlin) chin up, and as a group...

    Are addons still updating?

    I am surprised to hear that there may still be ongoing issues with access to Github with Skynet installed: there actually was a (now rare) specific update to Skynet a couple weeks ago that was meant to fix that. Odd...did you install that one?

    SIX months since Merlin included updated Asus GPL - what's cooking at Asus ???

    Just an FYI to @stargazer, there is no need to post information about new compiled releases from Asus here, as this discussion is specifically regarding the release of GPL files (which don't always come out at the same time as compiled new releases). In addition, @RMerlin always receives the...

    Things About to Get Meshy

    Those problems were under wifi only, I never tested while hard wired.

    SIX months since Merlin included updated Asus GPL - what's cooking at Asus ???

    Can you elaborate on those reasons? Or does that fall under proprietary/confidential/trade-secret/NDA? I don't claim any sort of "right to know", but I have to admit to being curious about what brought us here. TIA.

    Things About to Get Meshy

    I wouldn't worry about the lifespan of any the RT-AC68Us, as they have proven to be nearly bulletproof in that regard. However, I would be more inclined to "pause" on using those as AiMesh nodes; my experiences (and some others on this forum) with using them that way didn't go so well, as they...

    [ 386.4 alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s)

    @L&LD , just curious as to why you consistently refer to what is customarily called the 2.4 Ghz wifi band as the 2.5Ghz band? Yes, the channels do run between the two, but the standard/traditional nomenclature has always been to call it the 2.4Ghz band. Regardless, thanks for the updates on...

    Memory on RT-AC86U

    Sorry, that's not a feature that interests me in the slightest, couldn't care less about gaming. And yes, I know that was meant as a joke....
