    Merlin F/W for Asus RT-AC66R

    Cool. I get it. Similar back ground here. Doesn't really sound like there is as reason for me to move over to this F/W. I am interested in upgrading however. My S21 Ultra is 6E compatible and I will probably be able to get my Yoga C930 upgraded to this, hopefully. Be nice if Asus had a 6E...

    Merlin F/W for Asus RT-AC66R

    I don't attach any drives to the router. I have a NAS attached via ethernet. What gains did you get from using John's Fork?

    Merlin F/W for Asus RT-AC66R

    I did read that John's fork was the only option. Is it not worth switching to the John's fork f/w? Just stay where I'm at on the latest Asus f/w? thanks...

    Merlin F/W for Asus RT-AC66R

    I have the RT-AC66R running ASUS f/w ver: 3.0.0.4.382_52287. I've forgotten all about alternative f/w for this router. What is recommended to try or simply upgrade the router at this point? The LAN seems fine but WiFi seems to vary at times. Might be the device I'm testing from (shouldn't be...

    Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 - won't boot

    hmmm...I've found these to be finicky at times with connectivity. Some times reseating the ethernet and I've always disconnected power for a while also.

    RT-AC66R Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 - lost access to Guest WiFi

    Just looked but it only shows the 2.4/5ghz primaries but not the guest network. Running the latest f/w. I did have the SSID hid but I removed that option and refreshed the data but still no go. Confirmed I could see the guest SSID.

    RT-AC66R Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 - lost access to Guest WiFi

    Hmm... not seeing an option to view devices (in this WiFi router) that are on the guest SSID only.

    RT-AC66R Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 - lost access to Guest WiFi

    Ya, I did. Factory reset cleared it up. Running snappier when I log into the interface as well. New config about done so will back this config up soon.

    RT-AC66R Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 - lost access to Guest WiFi

    Logged in now. When I go into Guest Network now it has something called Facebook WiFi. This was never there before. Goes on to say: Facebook Wi-Fi lets customers check in to participating businesses on Facebok for free Wi-Fi access. When people check int to your Page, you can share offers and...

    RT-AC66R Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 - lost access to Guest WiFi

    I opted to segment the IOTs to guest WiFi. Oddly some items connect and some won't. Why is that? Anyway, since the update to f/w Version 3.0.0.4.382.51641 I lost access to Guest WiFi in the RT-AC66R GUI. I still see the signal I setup for Guest WiFi but I can no longer get to it in the GUI...

    Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 - won't boot

    Yes, I had to label these drives as well. The NAS wasn't it terribly will marked on the inside. I get it. I'm big on documentation. I think that's why people like to have me do it because I like to do screenshots and try to be concise. Yep, I find doing these things really help when it hits...

    Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 - won't boot

    Well the new hard drive came quickly. Was able to buy an identical with a 3 year warranty for a great price. I'm fine with that for what I'm going to use this for. So, you can power the unit off, swap out the bad drive with the new, pop it in place and then power up the NAS. You go into the OS...

    Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 - won't boot

    Okay, I forgot how finicky this NAS can be. Funny I've been thinking about getting a new one for a while now. But this box always chugs along. Seems after being powered off for a while helped. Cleared system memory apparently. I did finally get connected without the drives. Finicky getting up...

    Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 - won't boot

    I'll look into these options. Thing keeps rebooting so not sure I can connect to it. Comes on, I hear the drives spin up, I hear a click..continued spinning of the HDDs and then a louder click sound an it looks it shuts down and then starts the process again. A loop. I tried the reset (pin...
