    Need help troubleshooting - problem started out of nowhere

    Hi I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction—I’m not sure what happened. I’ve been running Merlin 386.9 on my RT-AC86U since very shortly after the final version was released — my most stable experience in a long time!! No freezing. No lock files. No nothing. (Additionally, I run...

    Can't stop ping?

    I dunno if this is Merlin specific, but I just tried doing a CTRL+C to stop a ping, and it doesn't stop it. I just did a simple: ping from within a terminal (I used Termius when it happened, so not sure whether it happens in other terminal software, but my assumption is yes). I...

    ping request time-out over WAN

    I just spent 3 hours trying to figure out why my ping requests to my public IP address were timing out over WAN yet successful over LAN. Well..... I narrowed it down to the WAN - DMZ setting being configured! While it makes sense as explained in the description of this setting... I don't recall...

    Baby ping spikes with XT8 router

    While investigating a packet loss issues (now resolved) it came to my attention that my XT8 quite frequently adds up to about 20ms to ping of the ISP gateway (using ethernet). This does not occur with another router, a Mikrotik Hap AC2. Originally I noticed this with the stock firmware, but I've...

    Ping Issues with new DSL-AX82U

    Ever since I changed routers from my ISP router to the Asus 82u my ping in games have gone from 30ms to spiking between 50 and 1200ms. It's really inconsistent. I understand with wireless they will be the odd spike but this is really really crazy spikes all the time. Are there wireless settings...

    Netgear router 50ms latency more than direct to modem.

    Recently I noticed an increase of about 50ms in ping to WAN addresses. Connected direct to a cable modem ping rates are normal for my geographic area. Going through the router, basic configuration, no Qos, etc., the latency is 50ms more. This just started happening. I have changed routers...

    How to ping/telnet to the secondary WAN box?

    I'm using an XT8 in dual WAN mode with failover. From my LAN, I can easily ping or telnet to the modem on my primary WAN. How can I do the same to reach the modem on my secondary WAN, while it's in standby. I haven't tried it yet, but I suspect I won't be able to reach my primary WAN when I'm...

    Allow pings from a single IP

    Hello, If ICMP (pings, etc.) is blocked in the firewall, it is possible to white list a single ip? ...using SSH or Telnet, the web interface only allows to enable all or none. Thank you

    How important is synchronization in TR-398 Long Term Stability testing

    There are some procedures to measure long term stability behavior in routers such us sending traffic or doing pings from a couple of stations, for example, every 2 minutes. These tests last about 24 hours, so I was wondering how relevant could be the delay that occurs for example in the ping...

The commands are below: wl -i eth7 ap 0 wl -i eth7 scan wl -i eth7 scanresults //To see the NETGEAR SSID wl -i eth7 join...

    Where is ping response coming from?

    I've got an ASUS RT-AC88U Router running ASUS-WRT Merlin 384.10, and I'm using port forwarding to put a device I'm developing on the Internet so script-kiddies can help me test my code. Today I turned off the device's ping response to see if that got less attention and was surprised to see that...

    arping is unreliable for wireless clients?

    Hi, I've noticed that arping seems very unreliable for wireless clients. It's perfectly OK for wired clients, and 100% reliable. Anybody have any ideas? No clients connected to guest wifi, and I can't see any logical reason for it to behave like it does. Here is an example...

    AC-5300 - No routing between 5G-1 and 5G-2

    Hi all It seems that devices on 5G-1 and 5G-2 cannot "see" each other. On Wireshark it seems some packets can't traverse from one 5G band to the other. Has anyone encountered this issue or got a fix? I suspect the same issue exists on other dual 5GHz routers too.
