    Possible to retrieve configuration settings when changing Asus model ?

    I am about to replace an Asus router model RT-AC68UF with an Asus router model RT-AX88U. I want to know if there is a way to recover on the new router all the configuration settings of the old router without having to re-enter them. Perhaps this issue has already been addressed.

    Problem when installing Merlin firmware 2.0 or 2.2 with AC68U

    I am equipped with an AC68UF router. I haven't had a problem so far installing the latest versions of Merlin up to version 1.2. My attempts to install versions 2.0 and then 2.2 seem to fail. At the start of the loading, I have a message that says "Failed to update the software. This could come...

    Simple question about configuring Policy-based routing for an OpenVPN client

    OK, thanks for the advice about remote access; I won't implement it anymore even if I don't see why it can be easily hacked unlike a VPN link. But, I must be a bit blocked, I don't see the relation between implementing a remote access via the VPN server so (from ASUS or my NAS; do you have a...

    Simple question about configuring Policy-based routing for an OpenVPN client

    Simple question about configuring Policy-based routing for an OpenVPN client

    I have another more annoying problem (which may have already been addressed in another thread): when I restart the router manually or when the router restarts automatically as scheduled, I find that the VPN client has stopped. And yet, I checked "yes" for the "Automatic start at boot time"...
