    Possible bug in 02-02-2019 release for AC-RT68U

    I was trying to link a new Denon AVR S740H to my QNAP TS212 NAS. Just to be on the safe side, I installed the newest AsusMerlin firmware on my ASUS router. But I just couldn't get the Denon receiver to recognize the NAS. In fact, the Qfinder couldn't find the QNAP either. It was even worse - I...

    Buying a second Asus router to be a dedicated VPN router, thoughts?

    I currently have a 87U router and was wondering if buying a second router (Asus N300) to be my VPN router is a good idea. The second VPN configured router would be connected directly to my 87U. Would this setup work? I'd like to have some of my devices connected without a VPN and only select...
