    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 is now available

    Thanks for moving the settings "Redirect Internet traffic" and "Killswitch". It's nice to not have to scroll down to see them. It also puts the settings that one most likely wants to change in the same section.

    Problem adding third VPN client (tunnel) with VPN Director

    I ran ifconfig and found the IP addresses for the tunnels. There were only four tunnels configured and the IP addresses were unique. I then loaded another config for StrongVPN so I had three StrongVPN tunnels (different locations) and two PIA tunnels. Guess what? The third StrongVPN tunnel...

    Problem adding third VPN client (tunnel) with VPN Director

    Thanks for your reply, @eibgrad. Just to clarify, are you saying that when I want to change the Windows 10 VM from one VPN client to another, that I have to also change the IP address of the VM's network adapter? I previously had my VM configured with three network adapters, each with a unique...

    Problem adding third VPN client (tunnel) with VPN Director

    I'm having problems adding a third VPN client (tunnel) and then using the VPN Director to force a client to use the new tunnel. I previously had VPN client 1 using Private Internet Access and VPN client 2 using StrongVPN. Within each of these two clients I have: Automatic start at boot time...

    VPN Director Wiki

    I'm seeking clarification of a paragraph in the VPN Director wiki. Under Various Notes is: Keep in mind that the killswitch will affect how lower priority clients work. If a higher priority client triggers its killswitch, then no traffic will go through the lower priority clients. You will...

    RT-AC86U failed firmware update

    The only LED that ever lights is LAN 4, and it is always on when the power switch is on, regardless of whether a cable is plugged in. Because the power LED never comes on, you can't tell if the router has entered recovery mode. The LEDs worked prior to the firmware upgrade. I'll try again with...

    RT-AC86U failed firmware update

    Thanks. I tried that today but it didn't help. When I try to upgrade the firmware it fails immediately. To verify that the reset button works, I pressed and held it and after a few seconds the router rebooted. However, when applying power to the router while the reset button is pressed and...

    RT-AC86U failed firmware update

    I cannot get the router into rescue mode. I had it in rescue mode last night, but it's like none of the buttons, other than the power switch, work. If I plug the power in while holding the reset button, the power LED never flashes like it did yesterday. LAN 4 LED is the only functioning light...

    RT-AC86U failed firmware update

    My attempt to upgrade the firmware on my RT-AC86U from 384.19 to 386.1 went badly. The current state of it is: I can access it's web server (finally). LAN 4 LED is the only working light. I can no longer enter rescue mode. I've tried the usual sequence to enter this mode, but the power LED...

    PIA VPN always disconnects with policy routing

    I've observed that pairing of messages far more often than I previously did, and I was beginning to think that had something to do with the killswitch not engaging or disengaging properly, but I wasn't able to prove it because I didn't have one of the VMs dedicated to monitoring it's access to...

    Sorry, I should have made that post a reply to you.

    PIA VPN always disconnects with policy routing

    I have two VPN clients setup on the router. Client 1 is PIA Montreal and Client 2 is ibVPN Toronto. Both are configured to start at boot and both have the kill switch enabled. I have three IP addresses configured for each client because they are assigned to three Windows 7 VMs I use through the...

    PIA VPN always disconnects with policy routing

    Thanks for your input. I changed the "Cipher Negotiation" to disabled, "Connection Retry Attempts" to -1 and added the router's IP in the policy route set to WAN. The first four lines in your custom configuration are what were loaded there after uploading the ovpn file. I'd previously tried...

    [Release 382] Asuswrt-Merlin 382.1 is now available

    After trying 380.69 for three days I've had no issues with throughput on the VPN client. Did anyone else notice issues with 382.1 after a few hours, or is the VPN client not a commoly used feature?
