  1. RMerlin replied to the thread [SOLVED] High nvram usage.

    Not possible.

  2. RMerlin replied to the thread [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 and 384.13_10 is now available.

    You're asking the wrong person... Unrelated. 385_20490 code was identical to 384_81846 for instance.

  3. RMerlin replied to the thread [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 and 384.13_10 is now available.

    The RT-AC87U still works, and still gets security updates. If you think the grass is greener elsewhere, you'll be disappointed. Asus...

  4. RMerlin replied to the thread [ 384.19_Alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s).

    Those builds are development builds. Nothing is "planned", I just make them when I happen to need to.

  5. RMerlin replied to the thread [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 and 384.13_10 is now available.

    From what info I have, this won't be happening, hence my decision to stop waiting and to pull the plug now. The script is doing what...

  6. RMerlin replied to the thread [Beta][Fork] FlexQoS - Flexible QoS Enhancement Script for Adaptive QoS.

    It's not a bug, it's just a bad design. Those app categories (Web Services, and I forgot the other one) can contain traffic that is not...

  7. RMerlin replied to the thread Parental control in AP Mode.

    Not possible. AP is just a bridge between the client and the router, it doesn't perform any action on the traffic routing.

  8. RMerlin replied to the thread [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 and 384.13_10 is now available.

    That's impossible, the 384.18 code is no longer compatible with the closed source components Asus provides for this model.

  9. RMerlin replied to the thread [ 384.19_Alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s).

    It's recent Both Adaptive QoS and Malicious Site blocking were working fine on my RT-AX88U before the 384_93xx merge.

  10. RMerlin replied to the thread [ 384.19_Alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s).

    Everything tied to the Trend Micro engine is half broken (Malicious Website blocking for instance doesn't work), and I have absolutely...

  11. RMerlin replied to the thread Changes in SSH in 384.13_10.

    Yes, obsolete algos like 3DES were disabled, for security reasons.

    Jul 4, 2020 at 1:51 PM
  12. RMerlin replied to the thread DNS Server Question.

    If port 443 was really blocked, it means you would be unable to access any web site over HTTPS... Your issue is elsewhere.

  13. RMerlin replied to the thread Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker.

    I have daily disk imaging of my desktop sent to my NAS. Worst case scenario means I lose 24 hours of work. Saved me twice as a %#&&%...

    Jul 4, 2020 at 1:45 PM
  14. RMerlin replied to the thread Have I had a security breach?.

    Host key can be changed in various scenarios. For instance, switching between Asuswrt-Merlin and stock firmware will cause it to be...

  15. RMerlin replied to the thread RT-AC5300 DHCP List Working very Poorly.

    Yes, and it works for me, which is why I suspect something on your setup is interfering.
