    What happens if you have openvpn configured on router AND have vpn app running on computer?

    A VPN CS agent had previously indicated that the VPN & DNS IP address should be almost matching (perhaps the last 1 or 2 digits off being ok) if no DNS leaks are present. I decided to double-check that today and I was informed that non-matching VPN and DNS IP addresses and ISP names on...

    What happens if you have openvpn configured on router AND have vpn app running on computer?

    Some good info here. As I understand it, with DNS leaks a user's actual IP address and every site they connect to is exposed, which to me is data exposure. It seems you might be indicating something else, however (please forgive my lack of experience in this area). Assuming it's not browser...

    What happens if you have openvpn configured on router AND have vpn app running on computer?

    I'm still getting DNS leaks connecting to the majority of servers I've tried with this configuration - which is the same result I was getting with a prior configuration on 386.3 that had "Accept DNS configuration" to "strict", and no route entries in the custom config field. As I understand it...

    NordVPN client does not connect automatically after reboot on ASUS RT-AC68U

    Is it necessary for the time to merely be set, or does it need to be synced with a VPN provider's servers? If, like the OP, a VPN user has a killswitch set up, wouldn't that prevent the router from communicating with a time server before the router connects to the VPN server?

    GT-AC2900 Dimensions?

    Can someone please help me with the dimensions for this router, *without the stand or antennas*? Interestingly ASUS doesn't have any dimensions on their product page, and I can't confirm if dimensions found elsewhere include the stand, etc. Many thanks!

    Simple beginner questions about using SSH with Merlin

    I'd like to try troubleshooting the copy/paste method briefly so this method might be an option in the future. Is there any way to remove what what was done at this point, other than restoring the jffs directory to what it was prior to this attempt? When pasted into the terminal, should the...

    I was able to install the eibgrad's killswitch script found here: https://www.snbforums.com/threads/kill-switch-doesnt-work.74948/post-715885 However I encountered something unexpected after pasting it into the open ssh session. Examining what was pasted in the open terminal window, part of...

    Simple beginner questions about using SSH with Merlin

    Performing a WPS reset will wipe out the JFFS partition and restore the router to the same state it was in when new, including stock Asus WRT firmware, correct?

    Simple beginner questions about using SSH with Merlin

    I appreciate the reply, however it is still unclear to me whether scripts such as those linked in post#5 would be stopped as a result of setting "Enable JFFS Custom Scripts..." to "No".

    Would any code-inserting scripts such as those linked in post#5 also be stopped as a result of setting "Enable JFFS Custom Scripts..." to "No"?

    I know we set it up with the latest firmware, but it's in a shared office space I have not been going in to lately for health reasons.

    Simple beginner questions about using SSH with Merlin

    Understood. Well if anyone is able to comment to their best knowledge whether currently supported models will wipe code-inserting scripts and the JFFS directory by doing a reset, that would honestly be helpful.
