    AC68U Wi-FI radical fluctuations on two different routers

    Like ozarkedge says could be poweroutlet or your extension/strip. if two routers are doing the same thing, doubt your router is the issue.

    Asus 86U or TP-Link AC4000 for the Same Price?

    What did you end up doing? I'm pondering literally the same thing but two years after you :) Wondering whether to get the ac4000 next time it's on sale at costco (they had it for 100 a couple months ago but i wasn't looking then)?

    Administration- ASUS notice (for privacy) -- where is the withdraw option located?

    Thank you all for helping out. The screenshot from ColDen makes it quite clear that the withdraw link/button should it exist will be on the privacy page itself. I do not have that button available, which i will take as an indication that the parental-controls feature does not send out any data...

    Administration- ASUS notice (for privacy) -- where is the withdraw option located?

    In my router, the "Administration - ASUS NOTICE( for privacy )" contains the following verbiage: "Please note that users are required to agree to share their information before using DDNS, Remote Connection (ASUS Router APP、Lyra APP、AiCloud、AiDisk), AiProtection, Traffic analyzer, Apps...

    Guest Network - No internet access

    I had followed the steps in the reddit link to a T. Only the LAN menu's DNS1 entry has the pi-hole IP in it. The WAN has quad-nine. I might still use diversion within the router sometime (i only just migrated from stock asuswrt to merlin) but for the near term will stick with the pi-hole. For...

    Devices connected to Yazfi guest ssid -- how to find/monitor them?

    I managed get a YazFi based guest ssid running and have a bunch of devices working properly. That said, I appear to no longer have visibility into the various (guest ssid connected) devices and their status i .e. whether they are connected to my network, their IP addresses, their mac-ids etc...

    Guest Network - No internet access

    I have the OP’s problem as well. My guest ssid devices have no internet access likely for the reason he explained. I have pi-hole as my dns server hooked up to the router and would like to preserve qos feature like you. My only question is if i follow your link’s steps and additionally configure...

    Scheduled blocking of internet by mac id

    Thank you! for linking that blogpost. I will try the sample script in it (assuming that the article also explains where/how to deploy it) and get back with the results.

    Scheduled blocking of internet by mac id

    I just finished migrating from ancient stock asuswrt to the latest (non beta) merlin firmware - i had to do the intermediate “55” version first and overall went smoothly. But now I’m a bit shocked :) to find that parental controls now come with a revised set of privacy terms. I am only...

    Interesting ac-68 guest network devices behavior with pi-hole

    Yes thanks, I did end up finding those entries with status "ok forwarded" under 192.168.1.1 -- i suppose i can surmise which device the traffic is from based on the contacted domains but it doesn't appear possible to search/list traffic exclusively from tv (intent is to selectively blacklist). I...

    Interesting ac-68 guest network devices behavior with pi-hole

    Would I gain any more insight than possible currecntly if I used a pi-hole that could also connect to the 5ghz guest ssid? (because I've seen many posts stating that to get pi-hole benefits for guest ssid devices, a separate pi-hole must monitor the guest-ssid). That said clearly that traffic is...

    Interesting ac-68 guest network devices behavior with pi-hole

    Thank you. In case (1) is not abnormal behavior, is there any way for me to view/understand what (urls, when/what) from the TV is being suppressed? I'm glad to have the tv under the pi-hole umbrella but some visibility would be nice particularly when the IP addresses are in the same subnet...

    Does latest ac-68 firmware Version 3.0.0.4.385 provide dns IP assign feature?

    Thank you all, just reporting back. For the moment, since I had a raspberry-pi lying around doing nothing, I decided to use pi-hole to accomplish my original requirement simply because I am reluctant to switch firmware for the present (when i have more time and flexibility in the future, will...
