    384.18 -> 386.5: What is the impact to INBOUND OpenVPN server running on RT-AC86U?

    Thank you both @RMerlin and @L&LD ! So my next question, is an OpenVPN (the OpenVPN version within 386.5) question: Are there any differences in the OpenVPN in 386.5 compared to 384.18 that I need to take into consideration? (other than I will need to remake the key and send it to the remote...

    384.18 -> 386.5: What is the impact to INBOUND OpenVPN server running on RT-AC86U?

    Advance apologies if this is a really stupid question: I currently run 384.18 on an RT-AC86U with inbound OpenVPN. I only have one inbound user (from another UU country) with OpenVPN configured to NOT allow ingress into my network, simply to redirect into UK internet so that user can access...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Apologies for a really dense question (try not to judge me): Currently running 384.18 - which is vanilla (no scripts or other stuff) EXCEPT OpenVPN Server with 2048 encryption and Internet only access for a clients (so that my daughter, in a different country, can watch UK catch-up TV). With...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.15 (and 384.13_4) are now available

    I knows this sounds weird, but with 384.15 on 86U, the first time you hit the 5Ghz config page, you are right, you can only select "Auto" in the drop-down. HOWEVER if you click on the 5Ghz SSID right at the top of the window in the "Wireless Mode" line, it does something to the 5Ghz GUI and now...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.15 (and 384.13_4) are now available

    384.14 dirty upgrade to 384.15 on RT-AC86U all fine. One bit of weirdness - although the time is set correctly via NTP, all INFO log entries think it is either Jan 31st or May 5th at 06:05 (Syslog entries have correct date and time when received by remote Syslog Server - actually Mikrotik's...

    Router reboots when i turn off switch

    I am interested in this - because this week, I have been plagued with a similar problem: RPI B+ running Domototicz, connected directly to one of the 1GB RJ45 ports on the 86U. Both 86U and RPI micro USB 5V power are driven off an APC UPS. The RPI has been crashing (don't know why - it just...

    AC86U 384.14_2 - Tasmota Sonoff wifi connection.

    I have Tasmota on Sonoff S20's, S26, POW, Basic, T1 and even the new Mini and no issues on an AC86U for me. However, these are 2.4GHZ devices - so I have 24/40 mhz channel bandwidth set. Wouldn't surprise me if they would struggle if you had set 40mhz channel b/w ONLY.

    RT-AC86U Ethernet Speed dropping with 384.14_2

    I had the same problem as you - going Gigabit 10m (60m is really pushing it - LOL) between an AC86U and a TPLink Gigabit switch. In the end, one of these was the solution:

    [Beta] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.14 Beta is now available

    I could have sworn that in previous .13 versions, LAN ->DHCP Server -> lease time number was in minutes, but in 384.14B3, it appears to be seconds, so have just had to set lease time to 604800 - in order to get back to 7 days. Can anyone confirm?

    5GHz not working

    So here is a weird thing that might be relevant: I run: 86U with Merlin 384.11 Mikrotik cAP ac Both have different and unique SID's for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz - i.e. 4 discrete SID's - so I know exactly which AP and frequency I can see and connect to. ALL my 5Ghz devices can see and connect to...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.11 is available

    Recent purchase of RT-AC86U from Amazon UK (I say that only because it indicates I have a fairly recent revision) running virgin (no scripts, no changes, no USB connected etc) 384.10_2 dirty upgraded to 384.11 this evening. All running buttery smooth, but a couple of observations: 1. 384.11...

    Asuswrt-Merlin 376.47 is out

    Merlin, I am a noob with the Asus product line - having just purchased and installed an RT-N16, specifically for installing your firmware (I am currently running 376.47). I am using The Dude as a network monitor, but I note that there is no SNMP support (which I ideally need) in the current...
