    Consequences of RT-AC68U USB flash failure

    [RT-AC66R] Very Strange Firmware Updating Behavior

    I have two RT-AC66R routers configured as router/AP. They were both running v1.28. Since I was running such an old version, I decided to try out the newer firmwares available (Shibby v1.40, Merlin v380.67_0, and stock ASUS v380.7743). I took the AP down and flashed to Merlin and then stock...

    TM-AC1900 router -- seems bricked but didn't do anything to it!

    Hi! I have two of these routers. One was connected and in use. While it was connected, I decided to try flashing the OTHER one to an RT-AC68U using the instructions that are easy to find on this site. It took some time, but I was successful. However, and this seems too weird to be concidental...
