    Max RAM% allocated usage?

    After I re-read the posts, I figured you must have been talking about how much RAM was being used, not allocated, but all I had to go by was the bar graph on the GUI. Following Butterfly Bones' lead here, mine said:

    Max RAM% allocated usage?

    I hadn't been worrying about it until I was reading your post about Router troubleshooting in 2020 and you said to be concerned if it was less than 10%, and got me to thinking, mine hasn't been 10% free in a while, so maybe I had a problem. I did understand much of it was allocated RAM and not...

    Max RAM% allocated usage?

    My RAM is usually between 93-95%, which has crept up from about 89% over the last few months and weeks. I read some threads where one should be concerned if there wasn't over 10% available. My RT-AC86U has an Asusmesh node and not over 20 clients usually , and they are pretty small potatoes...

    [Release] Skynet - Router Firewall & Security Enhancements

    That's a good thing, and shows you it's doing it's job. Nothing is trying to connect to a bogey. That's what you want to see.

    [Release] Skynet - Router Firewall & Security Enhancements

    It sure does. I guess that is so rudimentary that no one should have to look it up, but it didn't register for me. Now if I can figure out how to block it.... thanks, jts edit: that was one time I should have searched outside the forum.

    Can anyone tell me what IOT blocking is? A search didn't turn up anything for IOT.

    Setting up two Asus routers to extend wifi

    1) I have a similar setup with ethernet backhaul, and debated about the ap and the mesh method also, and wound up going with the mesh. I am no expert, but they both have advantages. I do like the automatic switching from the node to primary router when I walk from my home to small office...

    Are there any risks or downsides to installing a firewall like Skynet or AiProtection?

    There are risks and downsides to NOT installing them IMHO.

    spdMerlin - Automated speedtests with graphs

    It would be nice, and it may be available, to know from the GUI which servers were used in the speed test when selecting random servers instead of preferred. Sometimes it gets a really slow one and seems like it would be advantageous to know which one it is. Again, if this is already...

    ntpMerlin - NTP Daemon for AsusWRT Merlin

    Thanks, I replaced the default file contents with the contents of this one, # and all. The line for "disable auth stats" wasn't in yours so I left it out. There are some of the system logs that are different, but I think it is working. If I don't have any issues with it, I will leave it...

    Wow, that was too easy. I don't know how I missed that. I should have used some different criteria in my search. I try not to bother you guys unless I am stuck. thanks a bunch.

    ntpMerlin - NTP Daemon for AsusWRT Merlin

    Darn, I didn't mean to reply to my own post. Anyway, I have managed to install WinSCP, but where is the file located? I found a ntp.conf, but it isn't the same as the one that I tried to edit in ntpmerlin > nano. If somebody can tell me where to find it and what to edit, I'll give it a try...

    Firefox DoH and DoT?

    My firefox proxy settings are set to "use system proxy". Does this affect the auto turn on of DoH when I have it turned off? There are also some "doh-rollout-*" parameters that look fishy in the configuration and may need turned off, but not sure which or what. A search of the merlin board...
