    I have a strange issue with my Asus AC66U B1 router. I connect to my ISP through "bridge mode". This means that I am using the router provided by my ISP just for communication and the router functionality in it is disabled. The ASUS are getting IP etc directly from the ISP and is my "main...

    Hi, first time poster here. I currently have an AC86u as a main router, and an AC68u as a AiMesh node (wireless backhaul as wired is not possible). The AC86u is unfortunately in probably the worst place it could be, being downstairs in the extreme corner of a 1000 sq ft house, but there is...

When I enable 6in4, my speed over ipv4 gets capped at around ~130-150 mbps, and router is lagging like crazy (ICMP 20-30ms, unresponsive web), as soon as I disable IPv6, I get ~700-900 mbps without...

    Does the AC-1750 B1 (AC66U B1) support WireGuard

    I've been using Merlin for the past couple years. The advanced OpenVPN configuration has been a blessing when it comes to setting up 2 or 3 streaming devices, but it's not very usable for other devices, since the speed is capped at ~20 Mbps due to the single-threaded nature of OpenVPN and the...

    A friend recently gave me his Asus RT-AC66U and said I was free to play around with it and experiment. After realizing that OpenWRT and DD-WRT were not viable firmware options, I looked in to Tomato. Seeing tons of successful installs on this particular router, I decided to give it a while...
