    VPN Help

    And I have it finally working- reason it was not working before was that my jffs/configs directory did not have the proper certificate referenced in the script. For some reason, the certificate was not properly backed up (probably my mistake) just before I did the factory default

    VPN Help

    After attempting a few diagnostic runs, I have discovered that the culprit is the jffs up (and maybe also down) scripts in custom configuration. I have those scripts to email me when the VPN goes up or down. At the moment if I leave the "down" script in, the VPN works (and likely because the...

    VPN Help

    I have been using VPN in the past and have just upgraded to FW 386.3 (and have performed a factory reset) and am struggling with setting up VPN. My router is set to be 192.168.1.250 IP address The problem I have is that even though the VPN client is up and connected, I appear to be still...

    Best way to replace USB

    So to close the loop, I replaced the USB drive, but did not do a full reset. I was prepared to do a full reset if what I tried did not work, and in any case, I may well perform a full reset when I next upgrade to 386.3. Here is how I did it (on my RT-AC86U), with a lot of help from this thread...

    Best way to replace USB

    I have a RT-AC86U with a 2GB USB drive attached. I don't stress the router much and only have and use diversion. The drive has a 1GB swap file and the rest is for jiffs storage. However, I am thinking that with more of Merlin's functionality going to be stored in jiffs, maybe 1GB is not...

    Router temperatures

    I have done a similar mod to my RT-AC86U router and achieved 20C -25C drop in CPU, all without external fan. Ambient temp is probably 15C in the attached picture. Previously in summer and early autumn when ambient temp was about 30-35C, I was getting 85-90C on CPU My recommendation would be...

    pixelserv pixelserv - A Better One-pixel Webserver for Adblock

    @dave14305, thanks for your pointer. I repeated the process of removing pixelserv-tls and diversion again, but this time, I also uninstalled the entware package. The newly installed package of diversion/pixelserv-tls with entware now starts. SO all good now.

    pixelserv pixelserv - A Better One-pixel Webserver for Adblock

    No. I have a AC86U. If that is not the expected architecture, I have no idea how it happened. I used amtm to manage the entware package, including updating and upgrading. Come to think of it, the problem arose after I updated and upgraded the entware package. How would I be able to ensure...

    pixelserv pixelserv - A Better One-pixel Webserver for Adblock

    I removed pixelserv-tls with "opkg remove pixelserv-tls". Uninstalled diversion from amtm. And reinstalled diversion standard, which includes pixelserv-tls. Restarted, but no joy. Pixelserv-tls still does not re-start. Same "unhandled level 3 translation fault"

    pixelserv pixelserv - A Better One-pixel Webserver for Adblock

    I have an RT-AC86U with Merlin installed (Firmware 384.16). I have been having problems with starting pixelserv-tls, trying to restart it. I have uninstalled Diversion Standard and reinstalled it. But I am still unable to start or restart pixelserv-tls. The following lines are from...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    Sorry, I must have woken up confused this morning. So I should turn it on and use "Router" in Global Filter Mode. I blame it all on self-isolation:). Thanks for your help By the way, if I apply that I noticed that there are DNS servers specified below in DNS Filter. Will that then clash...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    I currently have DNS Filter turned off. So I should turn this on and apply "No Filtering", in order to force the DNS specified by router or router itself (according to definition of No Filtering"

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    Yeah, I think I am going to have to do some troubleshooting the next time it happens, but I was under pressure to get the zoom connection up on the Android phone, so re-booted the router after a couple of troubleshooting steps. But I am still curious why multiple devices connected through the...
