    Possibility to increase the length of the password (16 characters for the moment) ?

    Password Entropy is only one factor that determines the strength of a password and should never be considered in isolation, especially given the natural human tendency to create simple, easy-to-remember, predictable, non-random passwords. By definition, password entropy is just a measurement of...

    Possibility to increase the length of the password (16 characters for the moment) ?

    According to the following post (#21), ASUS has already made changes to increase the login password length to 32 chars. RT-AC68U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.43129 (released 2021-May-21): https://www.snbforums.com/threads/rt-ac68u-firmware-version-3-0-0-4-386-43129.72638/page-2 So, in theory...

    YazFi YazFi v4.x

    Jack Yaz, Last weekend I updated the YazFi add-on to the latest 4.3.4 version. This weekend while testing/verifying some custom changes I had made to the 'service-event' script, I discovered a syntax error in the latest '/jffs/scripts/YazFi' script, 'Auto_ServiceEvent()' function, line #253...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    Thank you for letting me know that I apparently failed to communicate clearly my intentions by using poorly chosen words in some of my posts. I thought that with the above I was making it clear that I sincerely meant no offense to the developer, @thelonelycoder, by posting my feedback...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    Do those installation instructions plainly state that at least 4 custom user scripts (post-mount, unmount, dnsmasq.postconf, services-stop) will be created if not found, or modified when found, during the configuration setup? Do those instructions also state that if any of those custom user...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    Easy there, man. I think you're overreacting with unnecessary self-chastisement. If I understand correctly, your Diversion "4.0" project (with all new code) for AsusWRT-Merlin had its very 1st release on August 25, 2018, so it's been "out in the wild" for a bit over 2 years and it can be...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    I don't have a coded shell script solution that I can provide. I'm a C, C++, C# and Java s/w developer by training & by trade and that's where my main skills & strengths lie. I write shell scripts (bourne, bash, csh) only as needed to automate mostly simple, routine, repetitive tasks at work or...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    [Continues 3rd part] As mentioned at the beginning of my post, all these installation errors have left me with a bad impression of the utility. This kind of "look-for-specific-line-and-remove-and-replace" bug is a simple rookie mistake to make, and I don't know why it has not been found or...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    [Continues 2nd part] The "unmount" shell script ------------------------------- The "unmount" shell script was modified with the insertion of the following 2 lines: [ "$(/usr/bin/find $1/entware/bin/diversion 2> /dev/null)" ] && diversion unmount # Added by Diversion [ "$(/usr/bin/find...

    Diversion Diversion *not* working after installation due to erroneously inserted/added lines of code.

    For over a year now I've been wanting to install & use Diversion (i.e. the Router Ad-Blocker, pka AB-Solution) on my home router but never had time available. However, lately, with everyone in the household working from home or taking classes remotely for many months now due to the coronavirus...

    NVRAM still high after factory reset

    When your number of client devices in your LAN with manually reserved IP addresses starts to get large, I think it's time to start looking into using the "dnsmasq.conf.add" custom config file as a way to add all your client devices to the DHCP Server IP Reservation list. Doing this will avoid...

    NVRAM still high after factory reset

    WRT NVRAM, to get a few more bytes free you might want to remove some of the unused/obsolete entries per RMerlin's 3rd bullet point in the 2nd post of the following link to the "384.10 Release" thread...

    Need help with DNS filtering

    You can try a possible solution to your scenario by taking the reverse approach of what you've done: 1) Select & add *only* the Preset Servers for "Cleanbrowsing 1/2 (adult filter)" on the "DoT Server List" configuration, and set those same IP addresses for DNS Server 1 & 2 in the "WAN DNS...

    OpenVPN works in ASUS firmware Not in Merlin

    Keep in mind that the OpenVPN versions installed on the ASUS stock F/W and the RMerlin's F/W are likely to be different (with RMerlin's usually being the most recently available) which means that some VPN configuration settings may not be quite compatible between different versions. IOW, you...

    Firmware bug found by changing Username & Password?

    @L&LD, I can understand and respect your personal stance WRT rebooting and then testing [often], which seems to come more from a system user's perspective with the ultimate goal of getting the device well tested, verified, and completed for you and your customers. I'm certainly not opposed to...
