    amtm amtm 3.2.x - the Asuswrt-Merlin Terminal Menu

    Times are correct for UTC and these turn the lights off at night and back on in the morning. Still confused.

    amtm amtm 3.2.x - the Asuswrt-Merlin Terminal Menu

    So then I am definitely missing something. Screenshots attached. Router is set to PDT. Time is just after 8am Leds are set to come on at 1300 and off at 600 Right now the option offered in amtm is to "disable" the leds implying that the leds are on. I can also confirm that the leds are...

    amtm amtm 3.2.x - the Asuswrt-Merlin Terminal Menu

    Update (22/05/02): I don't want to mislead anyone so I'm going to retract what I said below as others are quite certain that cron should be happening in local time. I still haven't gotten it to behave this way on my router. However it appears not to be a amtm issue so I'm going to post in the...

    Application of routing rules in VPN Director

    Thank you both for the comments. You are correct and despite my proper understanding of "client", I have botched my terminology in the original post. I will correct that. I agree that "tunnel" could be a less ambiguous term but as I am a humble beginner I'm going to work with the terminology...

    Application of routing rules in VPN Director

    I noticed you said "for that particular client". If there are conflicting rules between clients, eg. same ip with rules on two clients to use VPNs or same ip to be routed to WAN on one client (due to an explicit rule) and VPN on another, how is this resolved? Would the policy on the client...

    Application of routing rules in VPN Director

    I currently have several working VPN clients setup in the latest MerlinWRT and I have some questions on how VPN Director routing rules are processed/applied. 1. Is the order of rules on the VPN Director screen, the order that they are applied? This appears to be the case but just wanted to...

    Why do I need to sell my soul to boot the kids off the internet at bedtime?

    I setup apple screen time in the end as it gives some granularity to the access they have. My one frustration is that I want to leave the iMessage app unblocked so that they always have a way to communicate as long as they have wifi but the kids have figured out how to play games on this...

    Why do I need to sell my soul to boot the kids off the internet at bedtime?

    Okay, maybe that was a bit of a mellow dramatic subject line but why do I need to give up my privacy just to enable internet scheduling on ASUS-Merlin? I was going to enable internet scheduling on my AC68U for the kids iPhones when I got the message about giving ASUS/Trend permission to look at...

    Unbrick Asus RT-AC68U router over serial connection using a Raspberry Pi

    For those who appreciate pictures, like me, here is one showing the very simple connection between the RPi 3 and the AC68U router. I have reattached an antenna at this point and you will see that I left the metal shield on the router at the left hand side of the router board. The shield gets...

    Unbrick Asus RT-AC68U router over serial connection using a Raspberry Pi

    I recently did an RMerlin upgrade and botched it. I can`t say for sure how but likely not resetting the router properly and unplugging the unit at a critical point. Tried the firmware recovery, setting IP on computer and holding reset. Twice, recovery loaded to about 80% then pooched. After...

    Where to put firmware for peripherals

    Okay. Bought a Pi 3. Can you provide a link for the "RPi package repo"?

    Where to put firmware for peripherals

    You have a point about the router environment. And I guess until I read about that guy who`s router got "owned" recently, I probably would have tried to justify my use case. What started this for me is reading about people using tvheadend +tuner stick on other routers and I thought it might be...

    Where to put firmware for peripherals

    I'm still working away at getting my 950Q TV tuner working on an ASUS RT AC68U and I think I have the tvheadend software sorted. Now I'm having some challenges with getting the hardware going. Some questions: I cannot cd to /lib/firmware. Where on the AC68U I should be putting the firmware...
