    Lease expiration not being enforced?

    Six days ago I had an iMac attached to a wired connection for 2 days. It has since been removed. Last night I logged into my Asus AC-86U w 386_2_6 firmware and noticed that an Apple Device was connected to a wired connection here with an Automatic IP. Since I only have 3 Apple devices all of...

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    ok think the drive is in fact FAT32. I guess it is time to eject the flash drive backup the files format it as NTFS and copy the data back over. This power cycling was intentional since I could not get the radios to active properly.

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    Ok switched over from NVRAM to USB again and waited a couple of hours and did a reboot via the UI and this time the traffic chart showed the history like it should rather than a blank graph w no Y axis lines like it did before. Using a USB2 flash drive but that should be fine for the amount of...

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    That is exactly what I had. Doing a Reboot via the menu UI button or a power cycle resulted in the blanking of the screen on the Traffic Monitor page and no stats showing up after the reboot or power up completed. I had to do a reset of the data files every time on the USB flash drive in order...

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    Ok if the reboot option does the same thing then the /jffs/scripts/services-stop is probably not going to help. Am I the only one storing these stats on USB and having this inability to display the prior collected stats after a power cycle or reboot via the GUI reboot button? Is it possible to...

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    Is that services-stop issued via a telnet session? I am more familiar with dd-wrt which has a command area in the firmware where one can issue commands. I could not find any such area in Merlin to do that.

    Proper reboot method when using Traffic Monitor

    If one is using the Traffic Monitor to save stats to a USB flash drive in the router what is the proper shutdown procedure if one has to reboot the router? Does one simply click on the USB symbol in the UI to safely close dow the USB flash drive then power cycle the router? I am asking because I...

    Better wifi than WNR3500L

    Going to let the dust settle on this current configuration and see what the customer says. It seems that TP-Link on the existing WNR3500L may be fine for this particular case as its less disruptive and the number of employees using it is small 6 or so. The router and cable modem are located in...

    Better wifi than WNR3500L

    I had thought of using the Ubiquiti ER-X but have never personally used it. Was wondering if it is capable of supporting vlans and 802.1Q since there are two vlans being utilized on dd-wrt in this particular instance.
