    Question about the Parental Controls

    Not even sure if this is a Merlin question but the issue came up a couple days ago when I upgraded the Merlin from RT-AC86U_386.1_0 to RT-AC86U_386.2_0 (just tried RT-AC86U_386.2_2 see if it changed and it has not). Up to 386.1 the time schedule for a given machine was a nice easy to use and...

    Solved Guest network can access private net

    Glad I posted the screenshot. I mis-read that. Thought it said access internet which did seem odd as that is kind of the purpose. I've moved to third position and been playing with the enable / disable intranet. It does seem to be working correctly. My excuse for not reading that correctly...

    Solved Guest network can access private net

    No. It is in slot #1. I assume #1 is the left? What is the difference? The manual doesn't mention anything. Is that a Merlin thing?

    Solved Guest network can access private net

    Your drawing is pretty much right. The 172.21.17.60 laptop is actually the same machine as 172.25.25.100. I disconnect from one wifi and connect to the other in these tests. The TP Link connects to the ASUS guest wifi via it's WISP mode. So on the server side, it has the 172.25.25.1 gateway...

    Solved Guest network can access private net

    no i did not. The ASUS is in WIreless router. Are you saying then that mesh issues should not be the issue? I just have the volunteer router (TP Link) connecting wirelessly to the the ASUS guest network and the laptop connected wirelessly to the TP Link. They are different networks. ASUS...

    Solved Guest network can access private net

    thanks. I mostly wanted to make sure I wasn't screwing up. In this particular case, the reason for using the guest network is so I don't have to make sure I delete all my main network settings from the volunteer equipment. So I'm connecting their laptops to their routers to a temporary...

    RT-AC86U static IP Assignment?

    Probably more an ASUS question but as I'm running Merlin, I thought I'd start here. Although I've had the router for some time now, I mis-configured it. I have a DHCP range of 172.21.17.0-255, but have static IPs assigned for a couple printers. I had not reserved those IPs and all was well...

    Time Schedule Issue - 1 hour off

    Thanks. That may have done it. I'll be checking a couple times tomorrow to test it but I think the reboot did it

    Time Schedule Issue - 1 hour off

    As best I can tell everything is set right. I am in NJ/USA and below are my settings. I don't see anywhere where you would turn DST on / off so. The dates were odd when I got the router which caused me some confusion until I fixed them Actually the settings aren't below. Is there some way...

    Time Schedule Issue - 1 hour off

    I see a number of threads indicating that the parental controls / time scheduling is part of proprietary stuff so maybe this is just an asus issue. Merlin Firmware Version:384.7_2 Router RT-AC86U I noticed that the block / enable times were a little funny so I did some testing. It appears...

    RT-AC86U HD not visible on win network

    will look I had discovered #2. That made my wife's win10 visible. Oddly the other two Win10 machines did have it turned on so I always saw them (I mostly use an 8.1 pro). Both of those were Win7 x64 pro machines upgraded during the free period (did my 8.1 too but hated it enough to do an...

    RT-AC86U HD not visible on win network

    thanks will do the search here. I've spent days in general internet searching and read a lot on this. None have said anything about discovery changing under v2. Most speak about restoring v1 often while at the same time cautioning against that and some saying it should be temporary. That's...
