    Connecting two remote networks using Merlin & OpenVPN

    Hi I did sort of the same. Note that the two networks need to be on a separate subnets, ex: and The simplest way is if you need to add a static route on the router with the openvpn server. Or you can tell openvpn to set up the routes automaticaly. In my case the client...

    [ Request ] Pi-Hole on Asuswrt-Merlin

    I don't use any of the two mentioned here but I have a Pi zero attached to my AC56 running in usb gadget mode. Minimal list in my case is Pi, usb cable and sd card. It is used as a low power test server for work and sometimes thinkering. Speed is much better than wifi. It worked also on my AC66...

    cause for constant crashes

    Being different platforms and on different kernel versions it's not rely the same software. I bought the AC66 more than a year ago and the AC56 is second hand. Both combined cost me about 150 euros, 100 + 50. I know I could have bought a AC68 from the start but back then it was over my budget...

    cause for constant crashes

    I had similar issues with my AC66 when IPv6 was enabled. I bought an AC56, disabled wifi on it and set up the AC66 as AP. Used AC56 are cheep and IPv6 implementation on it works. I have given up on IPv6 on the AC66.

    Slower than expected wan speed with RT-AC66U when connected to ISP fiber router

    Of course I did the reset to factory defaults, it was the first thing I did. I understand it can be the source of many problems but it is not a magical solution for all of them. I managed to stabilize the router and have CTF enabled. I still see high soft irq cpu usage when connection is maxed...

    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    I also had problems accessing the router but only on 5 Ghz wifi. I switch over to 2.4 Ghz and it works ok. Internet usually work but the router can't be accessed in any way(web, ssh). I have a AC66U running 16E1.

    Slower than expected wan speed with RT-AC66U when connected to ISP fiber router

    O Johns fork my AC66U was rebooting itself every 6 to 8 hours so I tried disabling CTF. For now I can get by without it and it seems it solved the reboots also as my up-time is over 21 hours now.

    AC-66 rebooting itself every 6-8 days

    I also had periodic reboot about every 6 to 8 hours. I noticed this after installed Johns fork and cranked up the 5 Ghz transmit power to 180 mW. I had some problems with CTF NAT and after a few changes in config I managed to enable it and that is when the restarts started to happen. Yesterday...

    Slower than expected wan speed with RT-AC66U when connected to ISP fiber router

    I have disabled URL filter and keyword filter and IPTraffic. QOS is also disabled. What else affects CTF, what else should I disable/enable considering I have a pppoe connection. LE.: I installed Johns fork and this FW seems to better manage soft irq-s. I also disabled spanning tree protocol...

    Slower than expected wan speed with RT-AC66U when connected to ISP fiber router

    On my 100 Mbs pppoe connection the AC66 can keep up but I don't think it can handle anything more then 200Mbs. In top cpu usage for sirq is very high when the connection is maxed out: CPU: 5.9% usr 2.8% sys 2.5% nic 0.0% idle 0.0% io 2.5% irq 86.0% sirq CTF is shown as enabled but...
