    OpenVPN Clients - Error Connecting

    Hi, I'm not sure whats going on here, but I cannot connect to any VPN server. There appears to be an "error connecting", this happens even after reinstalling the .ovpn file. This isn't an issue of username or password being wrong. They are the correct details. I receive the same result with 3...

    New owner of ASUS RT-AC86U

    Afternoon guys, So yesterday I decided to take the plunge and pick up a new router, this was the ASUS RT-AC86U.

    RT-AC68U V3 Merlin Supported?

    I'm looking to buy ASUS RT-AC68U Which is quite an old router (2013) but just perfect for the purpose that will be bestowed upon it and at a good price. Going over Merlin's README, I see that RT-AC68U are still fully supported...

    Possible intrusion?

    Hi, I woke up this morning and logged on to my iMac and the browser was open with the RT-AX88U's (Merlin) page open. It stated that to login to the page I had to sign out of another logged-in session elsewhere. But I wasn't logged into any other session. Does this mean someone connected to my...

    RT-AC68U won’t update

    Hi there. So I have an RT-AC68U and recently I’ve been having troubles with intermittent connection while running it in repeater mode to my Orbi system (as there is one room in my house that is a complete dead zone). To try and solve this, I thought I’d try to update the firmware. I’m running...

    Hi all. Maybe this has already been discussed and need not be relitigated but why use host file format? Why not regexp? regexp > hosts file format, sort of obviously?

    RT-AX58U Wireguard under Merlin

    Odkrys' thread about Wireguard is older than six months, so I can't ask this question there, otherwise I would. The thread mainly concerns RT-AC86U and RT-AX88U but they recently added RT-AX58U (armv7l, 4.1.52) files to the first post, which I would be willing to test. I'm not quite sure how to...

    Has anyone setup and used AdGuard DNS through the ASUS Router app? I hadn’t noticed it until the last update and wasn’t able to find any information regarding AdGuard being set up through the ASUS Router app. Seems pretty straight forward, all it seems you need to do is toggle it on and...

    AsusWRT-Merlin Configuration with VyprVPN and DNS Settings

    VyprVPN provides an App that can be only used with Tomato Shibby; it seems that Shibby is out of date (last update 2017). For router configurations, I see that VyprVPN suggests to use Google DNS or OpenDNS for the “suggested DNS server addresses”. For instance, the instructions for ASUSWRT...

    Is there any way to block certain URLs for certain MAC addresses? (YES - solved)

    I just got a new Asus router and I installed Merlin and Diversion and so far it's looking amazing, big props to the developers. Anyway, stock Asus only has firewall blocking for every device, and parental controls blocks too many sites. How do I block URLs for certain MAC addresses? In practice...
