    Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker

    Do you have any browser level ad blockers running (Adblock, uBlock Origin, etc)? The router may have them whitelisted but they are getting stopped in browser.

    [Experimental] WireGuard for RT-AC86U/AX88U

    Does your Address line have a "." after then /32 as shown above? That's probably throwing the error if that's the case.

    Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker

    I've found that every few weeks the Amazon app on phone stops working and I need to follow the blocking log to see what new domain is causing the issue. I've got about a dozen that I've had to add myself to get it working.

    Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker

    Tasker has integrated Wireguard support and it works great. Very simple to do. I've got it set up so any access point I connect to outside my home or travel router (which acts as a VPN client as well) switches on my wireguard profile to connect home. I'm running a wireguard server on a Odroid...

    [Beta] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.16 beta (and 384.13_5) are available

    I'd give you the complete OPPOSITE advice! Give it a go! Next thing you know you'll be duel booting your system with Windows and Linux and getting in to real trouble!

    Wireguard implementation?

    Exactly... I picked up a ~$40 ODROID C2 and have it behind my AC68 acting as both an OpenVPN and WireGuard server. The whole purpose is to give me simplified and safe browsing while traveling (I stay in hotels often). I use WireGuard pretty much exclusively but fall back on OpenVPN...

    Help me identify myAC68U-AC1900

    Careful... ssh is a gateway drug. It will lead you places you never intended to go, often in the middle of the night, and you'll realize you have no idea how you got there.

    My Unenlightened View of VPN Tunnels

    Try looking in to NoMachine. I've been using this pretty regularly at home. It has servers and clients for pretty much all operating systems. They have a pay model but I've always used the free versions.

    If I remember correctly, the firmware used to have something like that but it was a significant security issue so it was removed.

    2018 in review

    Let's not derail this thread. Do a search for Shadowsocks and look for my user name. I went through the details in a few places. If you have any questions let me know.

    You can set it up yourself. I've got it running on my AC-68u. Honestly though, look at Wireguard rather than Shadowsocks. Unless Asus bakes one of these in to their router I highly doubt we'll get official support....

    The Odroid-C2 is $45 vs $170 for the RT-AC86U :) I agree, moving to a different router would be they way to go but in my use case hotel wifi is usually less that 15Mbs (if you're lucky). Moving to the AC86U would be expensive overkill.

    That's what I use for OpenVPN on both the ac68u and on my Odroid-C2. Works great, even through the Great Firewall. Even then, I sometimes get one VPN method that will suddenly start getting REALLY slow so I switch to another and it's back to normal speed. I read a report on the machine...

    I travel to China often and wanted several options for a VPN to connect back home. I had been using OpenVPN and Shadowsocks on my ac68u but wanted to give Wireguard a go. The ac68u kernel is too old to support wireguard so I set it up on my HTPC server (standard x86 box) with ports forwarded...

    Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker

    Are you using Pixelserv-tls? I was never able to figure out what needed to be whitelisted in order to make the amazon app work. I ended up not having pixelserv-tls active. Diversion and Skynet work great however...
