    Router Not Detecting When The Internet Is Disconnected

    I completely forgot about checking the modem logs. Thanks for pointing that out. The log is currently a mess since I rebooted and disconnected it multiple times, but that's the first thing I'll check next time this happens. Another thing I didn't know was a thing. I'll look into that setting...

    Router Not Detecting When The Internet Is Disconnected

    RT-AX88U 368.2_4 My internet has dropped a handful of times in the last couple weeks (not typical). This is particularly problematic with my wife and I WFH. When it disconnects and I log into the router the Internet Status show "Connected", but wired or wireless clients can't reach the...

    AC68U/Merlin 386.2_6 time scheduling working intermittently only?

    How do you go about doing that these days (AX88U)? It used to be NAT acceleration, but now there's Runner and Flow Control. There doesn't appear to be a setting for these, they just get disabled when some incompatible feature gets turned on.

    Possible to Change the Blocking Page?

    If I manually block a client from the client list, it simply blocks the internet. On my phone I get an exclamation mark on the wifi icon letting me know there's a "problem" with the internet. If a client is blocked using the parental controls time scheduler, my phone appears to disconnect from...

    AiMesh nodes disconnect since 386.1

    I was on stock (RT-AX88U) 3.0.0.4.384_9566 back in November 2020 when I switched to Merlin 384.19. I don't recall what FW the node (RT-AC86U) was on. Immediately after switching, my main router would reboot every couple of days. I alleviated the issue with the main router by scheduling a...

    AiMesh nodes disconnect since 386.1

    What application are you using to monitor the connection? I'm having the same problem where a Node is dropping connections once or twice a day. I never had any problems until I installed Merlin on the main router. Even though the aimesh portion of the FW is closed source and unchanged by...

    RT-AX88U Random Reboot

    I replaced the original file with the complete log.

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    I turned the enclosure fan off yesterday at 9AM and continued recording temperatures. The thing I found interesting is that the temperature of the small router enclosure did not change very much and didn't exceed 91F (33C). I suppose this makes sense because the total heat input to the space...

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    In my experience fans tend to whine and squeal before they fail completely. At the moment, when it's very quiet, you can just hear the fan inside the house when standing directly underneath so I would hear if the fan started degrading. Also, I suspect equipment rated for 65C operation would...

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    I threw a remote temperature sensor in the small enclosed space where the node router is located and took some measurements when we had a warm day. The router CPU temperature hovers between 70C and 82C which is well within normal. The other thing to consider is that the temperature rating of the...

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    Yes actually. I happen to have a thermometer prototype I can use. It has two probes that average the temperature. I didn't previously show an additional scrap of insulation I had thrown on what I showed above. The temperature on top of the insulation is 102.6F. The remote sensor measuring...

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    That was without a fan. As I type the inside of my house is 75F (Which is bit warmer than usual, trying to save a little on A/C). Outdoor temperature is 84F. Attic temperature is 108F. The inside surface temperature of my ceiling is currently 77F (general area). The temperature in a small spot...

    Node placement may be less than ideal but it works

    The operating temperature is referring to the surrounding environmental temperature. In my case, the fan/drywall system keeps the enclosure temperature just a few degrees higher than the temperature inside my house (~75F or 24C). I did a bit of research before going down this road and 85C is...
