    JFFS Full

    On the GUI, there's a trashcan icon on TA's page so you don't need to ssh into the router to do all the work.

    Fix full /jffs without factory reset

    In my case, it took the router 4 months to fill /jffs with TA’s data.

    Signal lobes of ZenWiFi-XT8's antenna?

    I updated the diagram with the facing of the router. I didn't realize the orientation of routers plays an role in this. Do you mean pitching the router 90 degree up, so that asus logo is pointing up?

    Signal lobes of ZenWiFi-XT8's antenna?

    This diagram is a cross section my home. There're 3 ZenWiFi-XT8 routers in the diagram. They're at the same "depth" on the diagram. The facing of the asus logo is represented by the vectors, with guest room router pointing left, bedroom into the page (that tiny "⊗"), and garden right. +...

    JFFS Full

    I think I might be wrong in saying file without write permission will help. Usually, you create an empty file with the same name by running touch aabbcc000000.log, and revoke write privilege by chmod a-w aabbcc000000.loc. ("a-w" means removes write from all) But since everything is run as root...

    If that's just one very large file, maybe creating a small file with the same name without write permission will help keep the file from growing.

    Did you use costomized icon for devices? /jffs/usericon contains customized icons for devices, named after the device's MAC address. For example, if a device's MAC address is "AA-BB-CC-00-00-00", and you uploaded a customized icon for it, then there should be a AABBCC000000.log or...

    That usericon file/folder is very large, 178M(?) almost. Maybe you can see what's in it then figure out why it is there in the first place? /jffs means to execute a binary called "jffs" in root directory. But that jffs is a directory, so you get a permission error. What you want to do is cd /jffs.

    running ssh processes with sites like github times out when connected to a network through Asus AC68U

    That sounds like something is wrong with your ISP. One way to verify this is to bypass the ASUS router and see if the problem persists.

    You can log into your router via SSH and run du /jffs to find out which files take up most of the space.

    Fix full /jffs without factory reset

    Also in my case /jffs/.sys/TrafficAnalyzer/TrafficAnalyzer.db alone took up 30MB, and the journal for this database took up addtional 15MB as the last nail on the coffin. I think some past ASUS firmware update might have been shipped with a regression that prevented traffic ayalyzer's database...

    Fix full /jffs without factory reset

    In your case your JFFS is almost full, so you can still remove files. My JFFS is full to to the brim, so I had to remake the filesystem.

    In which language should I send feedback?

    There's a feedback button on the GUI, and I want to send some feedback to ASUS. My router's GUI language is set to English but it's being used in China. This got me thinking, should I write the feedback in English, or in Chinese? Or should I just write feedback here?

    Fix full /jffs without factory reset

    I do not have physical access to the router. Once the router is reset, I will lose access to it because it cannot connect to the Internet via PPPoE anymore. So I must use this method that fixes the problem without resetting.

    [RT-AC86U, 384.17] can't remove; no space left on device
