    How would one upgrade an ASUS RT-AC5300 from firmware version 380.70 to version 384.19?

    Okay, thanks for the the clarification and advice. Not exactly what I was hoping to hear, but I do appreciate the response.

    How would one upgrade an ASUS RT-AC5300 from firmware version 380.70 to version 384.19?

    There is no way to do an upgrade and preserve the settings? What I am particularly concerned about is some OpenVPN settings, I am not sure if the GUI exposes all the keys and such. A factory reset would destroy all those settings. The reason I was asking is that I can export the whole config...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 380.68 is available

    Maybe some people in this forum have enough knowledge to do that, but I wouldn't have the foggiest idea how. I don't even know what you mean by entware.

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 380.68 is available

    I just came across this thing: https://github.com/securingsam/krackdetector I know absolutely nothing about it other than what it says on that page. But assuming it works the way it say it does, and since it is just a python script, would it be possible to include it in an upcoming build, maybe...

    ASUS Krackattack patch?

    Okay, got it. I just wonder how the DD-WRT people are implementing the fix then. I am not certain whether their fix works with Broadcom-based routers, so I will leave it at that. Thank you for that clarification, I appreciate it.

    ASUS Krackattack patch?

    Silly me, I think that when you ask a question in a forum, people should answer the question you actually asked, not go off on some irrelevant tangent. If you ask me "What is the capital of the United States?" and I respond by telling you the circumference of the moon, I have not helped you in...

    ASUS Krackattack patch?

    NO, I was NOT given the answer to THE QUESTIONS I ASKED. You gave me the answers to the questions YOU thought I SHOULD be asking. But I already knew all that. The questions I ASKED were these: "First, will the 380 branch of Asuswrt-Merlin be updated with the fix for this vulnerability, and...

    ASUS Krackattack patch?

    You did not answer either of my questions. I realize that it is mainly a client problem but still it appears that there is at least some value to updating the router firmware as well. And beyond that, with most wi-fi clients there is nothing you can do because you have to wait for the...

    ASUS Krackattack patch?

    I'm a little confused by all this, and by all the conflicting reports of the severity of this vulnerability, but I have two main questions I'd like to see definitive answers for: First, will the 380 branch of Asuswrt-Merlin be updated with the fix for this vulnerability, and if so, any idea...

    Questions about rmerlin on ASUS RT-AC5300

    Well it seems there was another release of the stock firmware this week, and it appears to have fixed the port forwarding issue. So maybe it was just one bad firmware release, I don't know. Thanks for all the help and information.

    Questions about rmerlin on ASUS RT-AC5300

    Thank you. So if you only plan to use the router as a router, and not run additional software on it, I'm assuming you don't need Entware, and if you're not trying to capture extra traffic history then you don't need ipset, which is good because right now I would not know how to install either...

    Questions about rmerlin on ASUS RT-AC5300

    Thanks, but... What is "the latest Entware-NG"? What is "the extended ipset info"? And, can you please tell me how you installed it?

    Questions about rmerlin on ASUS RT-AC5300

    I am having an issue with port forwarding not working in the stock Asus firmware. I was going to try dd-wrt but someone in their forum says the LAN ports on this router don't work in dd-wrt. So my questions are: Will rmerlin allow port forwarding to work on the RT-AC5300 (allowing me to open...
