    Curious log message

    I have firmware 386.7_2 loaded on my AC86U. I have not been checking the system log for the previous firmware, so am not certain when this particular log message started appearing or whether it is the latest firmware related, specifically about potentially unexpected fatal signal 6. I have not...

    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...
