    Long term, cheap upgrade from RT-AC56U

    Now, ignoring the instructions for 'installing' amtm, you can use the link below to properly format, name, add a Swap File and prepare the new USB drive for amtm use. Sorry again, Which link are you referring to L&LD? Thanks, Noob

    Long term, cheap upgrade from RT-AC56U

    Heya, Sorry to bother you all again but iv figured out what my issue is. When I SSH into my router the date / time seems to be stuck: ASUSWRT-Merlin RT-AC86U 386.3_2 Fri Aug 6 21:48:26 UTC 2021 The time / date never moves from this, no matter how many times I SSH into the router. Is this a...

    Long term, cheap upgrade from RT-AC56U

As of a couple of days ago, I thought I'd mess around with the Asus media server and then I thought, well, I have a...

    Long term, cheap upgrade from RT-AC56U

    Heya, Thank you so much for the advise. I'm looking at £120 for the AC86U, £229 for AX86U and £279 for the AX88U. All my issues started when the original usb I was using for swap etc crapped out and iv changed it. Since then iv had lots of silly issues. Is there list of some sort for what usb...

    Long term, cheap upgrade from RT-AC56U

    Hey @L&LD, I have an AC86U which is glitching out all over the place. I think the usb 2.0 port which has my usb swap file, skynet etc is failing as I constantly have to re install things on the usb. One thing I definitely need is good openvpn performance for expressvpn. Would you still...

    openvpn server and client question

    Iv managed to find out whats happened. I had a look at the ipsec.postconf script & changed it so the tunnel uses the 10.10.10.0/24 subnet. I rebooted the router, ran your original code & hey presto, it works! In this case, should i keep the 220 table clone part? Where would you recommend i put...
