    RT-AC66U upgrade to AC or AX (86 or 88)?

    I held off an upgrade pending a decision between cable or fibre and finally went for the latter and a 150mbps service initially. I will purchase a new router before the install early June. I was considering the AC86U (bang for the buck) though want to make sure it can last me a few years...

    RT-AC66U Merlin 380.70 2.4GHz channel missing

    On checking this morning the 2.4GHZ band seems to be back. Possibly an intermittent fault/on the way out. I'll try the flash as suggested above and see how it goes.

    RT-AC66U Merlin 380.70 2.4GHz channel missing

    Thanks. I've been looking at the AC86U for some time. I guess my hand is now forced. I tend to hold on and only replace when I have to. Cannot justify the costs of the AX.

    RT-AC66U Merlin 380.70 2.4GHz channel missing

    Thanks. Any suggestions for a new router? VPN important. I'm using a Huawei modem if it makes any difference.

    RT-AC66U Merlin 380.70 2.4GHz channel missing

    The 2.4GHz channel is missing and dropped connected devices. Could not connect again nor connect to 5GHz so rebooted and 5GHz now available. Tried another power off reboot with only 5GHz appearing after. Obviously, the device is now a few years old and I'm wondering if the 2.4 circuitry has...

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    OK, so what should be my local port setting on the router? It seems to require a single port unless I missed how to input a range. Service name-test Source IP Port range XXXXX:XXXXX Local IP 192.168... Local port ? Protocol TCP Incidentally, the app is a new development project. It...

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    Thanks for all your suggestions. Just to be clear I can ping the router from my mobile (data network) with/without VPN and FTP into the router's FTP server (so FTP is working). I can also ssh into the router from using PuTTY on my mobile. I disabled the PC's firewall yet I still cannot reach...

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    I can ping the public address both via the VPN and without the VPN from my mobile. Using a port scanner utility on my mobile I can see that 21 and various other ports are open. The range I specified above is not. I can FTP from my mobile to the router's FTP server.

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    Yes, using https://whatismyipaddress.com/ I can see 194.35.x.x. Edit: I can get a ping response from Windows command line.

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    Thanks for your prompt reply. The VPN is (at the moment) only on the devices. The ping is coming from another device/network across the WAN. It doesn't work with the VPN enabled or disabled. I've rebooted the router (incidentally, Merlin 380.70).

    Port forwarding inbound on XXXXX from RT AC66U to Windows 10

    I'm having a problem in getting port forwarding to work from my RT AC66U to my Windows 10 desktop over a wireless link. I've configured the desktop's wireless adapter address as 192.168.0.25 and opened some inbound ports in Windows Defender/Firewall. I'm using a VPN. On the router I've set port...

    WiFi/Internet connection issues RT-AC66U

    Thanks. You mean a reset and not a reboot, right? I'll have to set aside some time for that.

    WiFi/Internet connection issues RT-AC66U

    Recently switched ISP and since around that time have experienced some WiFi/Internet connection issues. However, I think that the problems are not connected to the ISP switch. Basically, wired seems OK. On wireless (mainly using 2.4 GHz) several devices (e.g. phone, tablet, and desktop PC) have...
