    odd spam in the system log? "kernel: wl0: random key value"

    That was only just a small chunk of the log I posted. It's a lot more then what is shown, as I posted only an example. However thank you for the clarification on the function.

    odd spam in the system log? "kernel: wl0: random key value"

    I have this spammed in my system log and I've been trying to track it down. Although I'm sure it's just a common feature and function of the router, I'm one of those curious types that likes to know where things are coming from. Does anyone know what causes this type of spam in the system log...

    RT-AC86U finally died looking for recommendations! :D

    I'm glad the post helped you out. The folks here are very helpful and tried their best to analyze and resolve my issue. Although it wasn't anything burned on the board replacing it with the AX86U Zaku edition has been night and day. So I suppose in the long run it was a good thing that my...

    QOS Cake or FlexQOS/Adaptive for Gaming?

    Hmm thanks for the insight. I suppose there isn't any benefit for me using CAKE and just stick to use FlexQOS then. I guess CAKE is on a different scale in terms of FlexQOS and is not really something I should be using for my particular scenario. I also read it doesn't use Hardware...

    QOS Cake or FlexQOS/Adaptive for Gaming?

    Hey everyone! I know there is a thread here talking about this but a few of them are quite old and one was derailed slightly on the second page ;) (https://www.snbforums.com/threads/how-to-choose-between-cake-and-adaptive-flex-qos.72101/) I have an RT-AX86U with a network that is quite...

    RT-AC86U finally died looking for recommendations! :D

    I switched over to a RT-AX86U and this thing is a beast. I even got the neat Zaku Red version since it was the same price all around and was more accessible. Besides I prefer the Red color XD. Thanks everyone for their suggestions. I just need to do all the settings all over again but I'm...

    Many thanks for all your input. I'm going to review everything and look at the models one last time and budget in pricing vs stability and age. :) So far it's down to two models.

    I reviewed this as well. Its only dirty. It's pretty clear it's not burned or damaged. Just poor quality photo for that section. Hard to get zoomed in photos sometimes XD. Sorry about that.

    Interesting thanks for the response :) I did a quick search and there is another thread on this. https://www.snbforums.com/threads/is-my-ac86u-toast.68578/page-3 It seems the part in question is this one according to the article. Going back to my photo though. I'm not seeing it as damaged...

    RT-AC86U finally died looking for recommendations! :D

    I know and I don't want to seem confusing. I just didn't want something that was extremely old or will be out of date soon. I don't mind if it's a year or two old as long as it's stable. In terms of bleeding edge the AX6000 seems a bit pricey for what it is. There is no harm in wanting...

    I checked using a DMM and the capacitor was coming back with roughly 19V+ 19.5 ~ 19.8. The AC Adapter that comes with it is 19V. I'm not assuming it was going to go past that. It seems to be getting juice and technically should be working. So the only assumption I can make it's something...

    Yep I'll give that a try. In terms of the new toy, that's still a work in progress as to which lol. Seems all indications are pointing towards RT-AX86U, though I'm open to any other possibilities. I had one person whom is a friend I know tell me Ubiquiti UDM. I'm unfamiliar with those...

    At this point it may be best just to replace the router itself. I was hoping the damage would be immediately noticeable but I just can't seem to find anything anywhere wrong. I'll try sniffing it as well and see if I can smell the burned. I may try to still repair it and give it a go. Worth...

    It seems pretty normal to me. Not really seeing anything wrong all around. Pretty flat on the board as well. I don't see any oddities on any other components on the board either.

    XD hehe it is less than $400. Just need to look it up compared to the other models and vs the RT-AX86U. I'm going to immediately assume it's at least faster and what not since it seems newer. Hmm I will admit I've never tried the ROG routers. Worth investigating and looking into comparisons...
