    OpenVPN Server RT-AC68U

    @eibgrad and all I just realized that when I I have VPN on, I can't access internet. It only allows local traffic. I have Marlin 384.xx and it is set to VPN Access - Both. I wasn't able to access all clients on local area until you asked me to manually add the route in the custom config. Is...

    OpenVPN Server RT-AC68U

    Sorry, I forgot to mention, I am using Merlin's firmware. 384.19. I found 386 to be a bit heavy on resources. 443 1194 are default, so I switched to 443 since its widely enabled everywhere. If you recommend something, happy to hear suggestions.

    WiFi and AiMesh Issue 3x RT-AC68U

    so i tested the mesh. everything worked flawlessly in term of setting up and binding IPs to certain Nodes and etc.. What i hated is a) you get limited access on node b) there is a slight lag in term of smooth switching (when client switches node) c) node to node fight with client (devices tend...

    Can't access router configuration (AC-68U)

    You'd need to reset router after you update to avoid issues. And also let it sit for a while before you do anything after an update. This usually allows router to build db.

    VLAN Setup Asus RT-AC68U and Netgear GS105Ev2

    Colin - thank you. I think, the NetGear Switch support DHCP. So if i turn on DHCP on that Switch & change to different subnet 192.168.2.1 -> will this kill the internet for the devices connected to it? If not, i think this will resolve the issue to some extent, because devices connected to the...
