    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    beta 3 ok for me using AC86Us as a main router in a main/AP combo. But I'm using a pretty simple configuration, and didn't have any obvious issues with beta 2 or beta 1.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    On Comcast 1 gig connection, I see a max of 930 mbps with my AC86U. I've only provisioned for 40 mbps outbound, and the max I see in speed tests is about 44 mbps. Comcast overprovisions the slower data rates, but its hard to say for the 1 gbps connection what's happening. For the SNB AC86U...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    AC86U main/AP combo running beta 2 working fine at two locations, but as usual, I'm utilizing a fairly minimal set of features.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    All ok for me. However, I've been puzzled for a while about why ASUS has not been releasing 42095 firmware updates for more routers. I think this may be the first time I've seen where your firmware may contain a newer GPL than a stock firmware for many routers. It looks to me that ASUS is...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    I thought your previous post that I'm quoting here indicated that ASUS had released a new GPL beyond 42095, but I apparently misunderstood what you wrote.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    I was wondering if incorporating the new GPL would mean taking 386.2 back to alpha phase.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    This would seem to explain why ASUS has only released only a few firmware updates based on 42095. Are you going back to alpha status when you incorporate this update?

    I would install now, but daily backups are running.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    Both of your reasons don't make immediate sense to me. On your first reason, If I understand correctly, Merlin enabled CPU wait for 384.1, but it was disabled in the GPL. Another good example is that pretty much everyone on this forum would agree that its better to disable Universal Beam...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    @RMerlin, would it be possible to add a Web UI element to enable/disable EEE and CPU wait?

    Aimesh 2.0 vs Router and AP

    I've got dual AC86U routers acting as main/AP at two locations, and it just works. I never have to think about that aspect of my wifi system.

    Router temperatures

    My takeaway from some of Tech9's earlier posts is that a fan is the best solution for the average AC86U because it provides cooling for all the heat generating components which preserves caps and apparently helps reduce the potential for solder cracking. However, for routers such as yours where...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 Beta is now available

    Updated one set of my two AC86U main/AP combos without issue. Nothing unusual in the router logs, and everything appears to be functioning normally. Fairly minimal setup. Using built-in DoT, two continuously running OVPN clients on the router, some port forwarding, some static IPs and manual...

    [Alpha] 386.2

    Interesting news. I've been cruising happily along on the 386.2 alpha bandwagon, but not sure I can afford to be among the first to try alpha2 when its posted.
