    AX86U using 500 MB RAM for USB HDD

    Speaking of RAM usage, without the USB HDD the RAM usage is around 480MB with it connected it is more like 975MB. Is this normal that the router uses 500MB for the connected drive?

    AX86U-Any One having problems with guest network slot 1?

    Funny event. I set up a guest login on slot 1-2.4GHz, even though the guest is showing as connected with strong signal, on the phone it is either appearing as being connected to another network on the router or not showing at all. I removed the entry and put exactly the same thing in slot 2, it...

    High RAM Usage RT-AC86U

    I found that the USB external HDD is using 500MB of RAM. When disconnected the RAM usage drops to below 500MB. Is this something to have a look at?

    High RAM Usage RT-AC86U

    Sorry if I replied in the wrong thread. Indeed I was talking about the RT-AX86U. My old router was RT-AC87U. No comparison for stability and speed.

    Set up my new AX86U today

    Anyone was able to find the proper manual for the RT-AX86U? The one on ASUS website is a first edition and does not mention any of the new features. If you find it, please post a link so we can understand what all of these new settings and features do.

    High RAM Usage RT-AC86U

    Just purchased this 2 days ago and set it up. For one, the VPN is twice the speed of rt-ac87u on the download and 100% ISP speed on the upload, but this morning I switch it on and the 5G wifi does not come on. I had to switch it off and then on again and only then the 5G wifi came on. Anyone...

    Asuswrt-Merlin firmware inconsistency - VPN client - 'Policy Rules' setting (Asus RT-AX88u)

    My VPN provider has a configuration to route ipv6 over ipv4, which I am using. When vpn is set to route all traffic inside the tunnel, IPleak.net shows only the ipv4 IP and the ipv6 IP as unreachable and the VPN DNS (here using "strict"). If I have connections inside and outside the tunnel, and...

    Asuswrt-Merlin firmware inconsistency - VPN client - 'Policy Rules' setting (Asus RT-AX88u)

    When using RT-AC87U with openvpn and IPv6 enabled, it leaks DNS if there are connections outside the tunnel, but not if all connections are inside the tunnel. Will this be the same with RT-AX88U? I find that VPN is much faster and reliable if IPv6 is enabled, as we are being throttled to death...

    RT-AX86U/RT-AX5700 hits the FCC

    Will the rt-ax86u have hardware crypto acceleration? Does this acceleration work with openvpn or ipsec only?
