    RT-AC66U B1 vs AC68U cooling

    Thank you for reaffirming my hypothesis :-) I would have liked to make a more scientific measurement wih the two devices. But sadle the water killed them. Annoying global warming and rising sea levels ;-) This would seem to suggest that an AC66U B1 mounted veristically in a homemade stand...

    RT-AC66U B1 vs AC68U cooling

    Unfortunately the water then "drowned" them in the basement was very mineral rich. And the routers dont even booth up even after drying and cleaning with isopropanol to remove moisture. Just wandered about the heatzink difference on seemingly identical hardware

    RT-AC66U B1 vs AC68U cooling

    Are they same HW revisions?

    RT-AC66U B1 vs AC68U cooling

    I am asking about the AC68U not the AC86U :) But thanks for the numbers. Both routers have received water damage due to water in basement. So out of curiosity I took them apart to see if I could fix them.

    RT-AC66U B1 vs AC68U cooling

    Hi all I have both an ac66u B1 and an ac68u that are defective. After opening them I notice that the AC66u B1 has a larger heatsink on the front and also a quite large heatsink on the back. Whereas the AC68U has a one the fron ta bit smaller and then a very small one on the back. Since they...

    DNS server on LAN DCHP settings page

    Oh, ok I see. I did not think about this issue. WOuld make it problematic for all LAN devices needing to talk to each other like printers and such

    DNS server on LAN DCHP settings page

    Thank you for the reply :-) I am not sure though i am ready or have the abilities to spend 1 hour using a firmware restoration tool to update to a custom firmware. The router is placed in a hard to get area on an attic so it will probably not be realistic. But I thank you for your replies :-)

    ASUS Blue Cave throttling to 200Mbps

    I have experienced on several Asus routers that when using them in AP mode the LAN port always yielded the best result. Compared to using the WAN port as you would normally do when using the router in router-mode. SO I dont think it is buggesd per se.

    DNS server on LAN DCHP settings page

    Thank you for your reply. I am more interested in privacy than security which is why I would use the DoH. I of course already have cloudflare as DSN in the WAN tab. But would setting the DNS on the LAN DHCP site and bypassing the dns chain in the router have any adverse effects? I am not sur...

    DNS server on LAN DCHP settings page

    Hi SNB I would like to use DNS-over-HTTPS which Firefox and chrome supports. To avoid setting the DNS to cloudflare (1.1.1.1) manually on all clients browser settings I would like to set it on the Asus AC66U (not B1) router. If this is done on the WAN settings page the DoH does not work since...
