    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    Hi John, Perhaps I'm not reading your upgrade matrix file correctly, but I don't see the specific rec procedure for someone on v28L who wants to go to v29E. I'm guessing it would be the same as the v26L to v28E+ line, which recommends the factory reset? Though I recall some folks posting here...

    Expired? - was [PSA] TP-Link PowerLine AV500 Refund Program

    @SirRadiodude, Sadly I had a very similar and ridiculous experience. You will in no way get any sort of response through emails or telephone. I tried just like you. I even tried to get through 'tech support' and wasted so much time first waiting for them to pick up and then speaking with the...

    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    If you read the original post, the point of this fork is to be an extremely stable version of 374.43. Security updates are maintained. It will not include many bells + whistles added by Asus/Merlin since that version. Some of those extra features you are missing are not there, nor will they...

    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually finished tinkering with it before I read your post but I appreciate the links for posterity. What I meant in my question was could I use a newly saved NVRAM cfg file, from this bugged state, in my current debug attempts. I did not use that method on the...

    [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS releases (Archive)

    I just had this same thing occur to me, the graphical glitch in the tools page, after converting my TM-1900 to a full-fledged RT-AC68U with bootloader I flashed your latest V20E9 version. The firmware prior to this was the stock ASUS 376.3626, which was necessary to expand the...

    Expired? - was [PSA] TP-Link PowerLine AV500 Refund Program

    Just as a follow-up, I have rarely dealt with a more incompetent customer service organization. After going through an exceptionally aggravating amount of calling/emailing, I finally received a RMA for my 2 units. I received my check ~1 month afterwards. But it was for half the amount due...

    Does a MoCA adapter need a splitter if sharing with a cable modem?

    I'm looking into MoCA options for my home network. My current setup has a coax cable going straight into my cable modem, which is then connected to my router. The TV signal is from a separate outlet in a different room connected to a HDHR Prime. If I want to use a MoCA adapter with the cable...

    Asuswrt-Merlin 376.49 is out

    I am running still (see my sig). I do not really put the router through its paces so I do not need most of the benefits Merlin affords us over the T-Mobile branded firmware. Agree with everything you wrote above, hard to brick this thing!

    Asuswrt-Merlin 376.49 is out

    Curious as to what you think may happen on a Tmobile AC1900 router which has not had the CFE modification and is still running Tmobile's CFE? I'm running an earlier Merlin build but did not swap out the CFE. My guess is nothing good would come of it! As there is significant...

    Does T-Mobile/ASUS TM-AC1900 (RT-AC68U) Support Merlin?

    I currently have a RT-N66U running Merlin.... and T-Mobile service... but no 802.11AC-wireless peripherals. Worth 'upgrading'?

    How to configure Samba Share on RT-N66U...

    I too was just trying to activate samba sharing on my N66U. I discovered that with my router admin password containing some non-typical symbols (they're not anything weird, they're on the keyboard but not used very often), I was unable to login. If I make another account, using the same...

    Asuswrt-Merlin 374.39 is out

    I just installed this version, and after restoring to default and then reconfiguring the settings, I hit reboot just to start it running anew. When it came back up, all the settings were lost. Anyone else?

    RT-n66U and Samsung Galaxy s4 5ghz issues

    Hi all, I have a T-Mobile Galaxy S4 that connects to a 5ghz signal on my Rt-N66u. Right now I'm running the 270.26b build of Merlin's. I had been running the latest Asus firmware but found there were frequent disconnects with the 5ghz freq. Every now and then, though, with the 270 build...
