    Beta ASUS RT-AC87U Firmware 9.0.0.4.382.52503 (02-02-2021)

    There is no option 61 in the GUI afaik. But it looks like asuswrt is useing udhcpc from busybox for dhcp. The busybox doc says there exists a "-c,--clientid=CLIENTID Client identifier" argument. Question is how to get it into startup scripts.

    IPV6 Help

    But the thread is about ipv6? QoS in your asus router will not know about everything else in the house. If e.g. the work laptop overloads the upload connection on the isp gateway there is little the asus router can do about it.

    IPV6 Help

    Did you put the asus router into 'repeater mode'? I have a old asus router in this mode and I have problems with ipv6. The router does not have an ipv6 address but it does forward ICMPv6 Router Advertisment. Clients connecting to the repeater get a ipv6 address but cannot use it. It looks like...

    Beta ASUS RT-AC87U Firmware 9.0.0.4.382.52503 (02-02-2021)

    It is the same for me, I use it as my main router with the asus firmware. Very stable all day long. I reboot it every night.

    Best practices RT-AX88U and old repeater(RT-AC66U)

    I have no ipv6 connectivity in repeater mode. When clients switch to wlan from the router in repeater mode the ipv6 connections drop or timeout. What settings are needed on the page 'Advanced_IPv6_Content.asp'? Update: I wonder how this is supposed to work. Should ipv6 be bridged or routed? How...

    Best practices RT-AX88U and old repeater(RT-AC66U)

    It's a pity that the bandwidth is cut in half with repeater mode. I am still happy with my solution. My coax upload bandwith is maxed out (although that is not difficult :). And most important it seems to be solid and stable. From what I read this forums that does not seem to be the case with...

    Best practices RT-AX88U and old repeater(RT-AC66U)

    I use the ASUS stock firmware. Disabling the 2.4GHz band in AP Mode does work. But unfortunately I cannot connect reliably to the 5GHz Band in 'Repeater mode'. I have the same problem in 'Media Bridge' mode (random drops if I connect via 5GHz band). What is interesting is, I can copy&paste the...

    Best practices RT-AX88U and old repeater(RT-AC66U)

    How do you disable the 2.4 GHz if the router is in 'Repeater Mode'? I cannot find this option in the GUI. If the router is in another mode I can go to Wireless / Professional and set Enable Radio to no. But the option Wireless does not show while in 'Repeater mode'.

    Question: Did you setup the repeater mode on the old router via Bridge / WDS (Wireless Distribution System)?

    Beta ASUS RT-AC87U Firmware 9.0.0.4.382.52503 (02-02-2021)

    Thanks ASUS for this update. I installed it a few hours ago and seems to work fine.

    RT-AC86U AiMesh with RT-AC66U bridge

    Same for me. I am having stability issues with the stock asus firmware connecting on the 5Ghz band. Sometimes the media bridge is unable to connect to the wlan network. I have switched to the 2.4Ghz now. Seems to be more stable an reliable. But of course the speed is not so great.

    RT-AC86U AiMesh with RT-AC66U bridge

    I am also using the RT-AC66U in media bridge mode. In my opinion the media bridge mode has some bugs. For example it is running a dnsmasq service for reasons unknown to me. I have observed with wireshark that after a while the media bridge responds to dhcp queries form clients connected via...

    RT-AC87U 2.4Ghz problem

    Sounds like a bug in the wireless driver or firmware. I would try a factory reset and update to the latest asus firmware. Recently asus publised an update for the RT-AC87U model.

    RT-AC66U mediabridge 5GHz not available

    My main router is a RT-AC87U model with latest merlin stable. I have switched my 5GHz channel bandwith to 80 MHz and set Control Channel to 36. It works my AC66U can connect to the 5GHz network. Originally I have set the 5GHz Control Channel to Auto and it had selected a channel the AC66U...
