I run cake qos v2.1.2 on the merlin firmware of the TUF-ax3000 v1 router with default parameters. It runs fine, but the download speed can only reach...

    UnderClocking CPU

    Would it be possible to add an "Underclocking" CPU feature to a future merlin build. Im running an RT AX88U F/w & even with multiple device connected (Wifi & hardwired) + a USb media server, my CPU usage never reaches about 10%, so by reducing the CPU clock i could lower the units temperature...

    How can I bond two VPN connections?

    I have an rt-ac68u and I have it set up as a VPN client. Each core in the CPU in the router seems to be able to handle about 25Mbps each. I've tested this and been able to simultaneously download at 25Mbps on each VPN connection to total 50Mbps. Is it possible to bond the connection locally...

    OpenVPN CPU question

    I have a 50/50 connection, when I use OpenVPN, that changes from 50/50 -> 20/50 I traced the problem to the CPU. For some reason, when it downloads, it only utilizes half of 1 core (I know OpenVPN is an inherently single-cored process). For upload, it uses all the core - which btw results in...

    How does the Trend Micro Two Way IPS work in AsusWRT while Snort would melt desktop computers?

    Hi, Since I enabled the Trend Micro Two Way IPS on my AsusWRT and seen how well it performs (In terms of Network Speed and detected attacks), I would not change it back to how it was before. At some point I needed to change to another router with an OpenWRT, and I've seen that Snort/Suracata...

    VPN usage and processor utilization

    1) Is there a way to monitor the CPU load imposed by VPN usage ? 2) When using two OpenVPN clients, is splitting affinity the default or was this a special build ? https://www.snbforums.com/threads/fastest-router-for-vpn.28091/#post-216375
