    RT-AC86U Lag Spikes

    The version I updated to was 386.2_2 and the version before updating was 386.2_0. So here is the strange thing. I did a factory reset and install the asus official firmware and I am not having any problems ever since. I don't really know if this was caused by merlin or something else but it's...

    RT-AC86U Lag Spikes

    So I know this isn't really specific but I am having problems with the Asus Merlin software lately. It was working well until I updated 2 weeks ago. Since then, I am getting huge lag spikes (999ping) on games every 10 minutes coupled with strange wifi not being responsive in all devices. So the...

    How can I edit defaults.c?

    Ok cool then. I guess you are that limited. Thanks a lot for your answers.

    How can I edit defaults.c?

    Oh I see. Well then there is only one way of fixing my smart connect and this is by removing some channels from the control channel list and/or capping 2.4GHz/5.0GHz bandwidth (changing wl_chanspecn and wl_bw_cap) . Is that in any way possible?

    How can I edit defaults.c?

    Oh Merlin, it's an honor. Thanks for the clarification, i am not good with firmware procedure and stuff. I was hoping I could change some values somehow so that I could use Smart Connect without any problems. This is one of my unanswered posts asking for help...

    How can I edit defaults.c?

    So I have been reading the default.c intensively and I was wondering on how I could edit it to fit my needs (like limit 2.4GHz channels to 1,5,11, restricting channel bandwidth e.t.c. I am just looking for a way to extract it somehow to put my modified defaults.c in my flash or in some other...

    Force nvram settings after reboot

    So I have been having trouble using my router's Smart Connect because of region problems (bought US router in Europe and my router automatically uses 149+ control channel which is not allowed here so my 5GHz isn't detected at all). So I guess the only fix for this is changing nvram (by editing...

    RT-AC86U Problems with Smart Connect

    Yeah that's what I was saying to, I figured it out when I checked in on Wikipedia. So do you have any links I could use to work on SSH so that I can do it myself? I don't know how to access the files and check what values change.

    RT-AC86U Problems with Smart Connect

    I don't think it's practical for me to change internet connections whenever I want to change my tasks. Because let's say I am using the PC for gaming and then I stop and get to browsing or something. I hope you can understand what I am trying to achieve.

    RT-AC86U Problems with Smart Connect

    But if there are 2 bands under the same ID, isn't it common that most devices turn to the 2.4GHz because of better signal? I want to achieve the opposite: Having the 5GHz for my devices for demanding tasks (gaming, downloading, video streaming) and having the 2.4GHz for smooth messaging and...

    RT-AC86U Problems with Smart Connect

    I am not sure but is it a way to steer between bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) without smart connect?

    RT-AC86U Problems with Smart Connect

    So it seems like there is a problem with my Smart connect feature on my RT-AC86U. Every time I enable it, all of my devices are connected to 2.4GHz. Even if I disable it and try to get into the 5GHz channel, it doesn't let me in. I have found a fix to it by changing the Control Channel from Auto...
