    No Add-Ins Tab

    I rebooted my router and now the Add-Ins tab is missing. How do I get it back, and what needs to happen to ensure it does not happen again?

    I want more of a understanding of the issue as it relates to any Merlin f/w, or any of the scripts that we use. Yes, we should all be bothered by security problems, but that comment does nothing to explain if it is or is not an issue that we need worry about, and if it is something to worry...

    Yes. But all that LAN traffic might be impacting the routers performance when it is doing these tests.

    I'm not sure about the details of the cameras, but looking at Traffic Monitor in Merlin, I'm using about 32Mb/sec (4.0MB/sec) on the 5GHz network and about 5.6Mb/sec (0.7Mb/sec) on 2.4GHz, mainly going to the NAS.

    All my testing was through a Ethernet connection from my Win10 PC to the AC86U. The router is ethernet connected to my Comcast Docsis modem. Most of the ethernet connections are 1G but I do have an occasional 10/100 connection. The PC ethernet connection is 1G. There is still a little...

    Thanks. I need to experiment with this. I just ran a few hundred pings and had 0% ping loss but cake was still reporting about 0.5% packets dropped. I also ran the DSLReports speedtest and got A+ bufferbloat when I had my Win10 PIA client off but with the client on, bufferbloat varied from A...

    What is a good target for % Drops? After decreasing the download bandwidth, I'm now at about 0.8% of packets.

    I just ssh'ed into cake, and saw this status: Sent 13260906455 bytes 12095560 pkt (dropped 11004, overlimits 3750932 requeues 0) Does the overlimits mean what it implies, that I have my bandwidth settings wrong? I currently have it set for ~89% of my max ISP download speed, but because of...

    After doing an cake update, do I need to reboot, or will cake right itself at the top of the hour, or did it take immediately after updating? Looking at the logs, that suggests to me that cake was stopped, then updated, then restarted with the new version. Is anything else needed?

    NVRAM [Release] NVRAM Save/Restore Utility

    Has anyone else reported that sometimes the script does not complete? I have a cron job that runs this script daily at 3:01am. When it works, it takes about 52 secs to complete but occasionally it stops at about 2 secs. I previously reported this issue but it is still happening. How can I...

    NVRAM [Release] NVRAM Save/Restore Utility

    I want to try to install unbound again. I'm thinking that my previous problems with the router config going south was due to heat, so I installed a couple of fans to the back of my ac86c. That has lowered my cpu temp by 20C. As of now, my router has been working great without unbound for the...

    I just set my speeds to be 90% of the tested values, and set the priority to Besteffort. I now have A+ across the board. Thanks for everyone for your help.
