    Hi, I have been having some weird issues watching Spectrum TV APP on my apple TV. I am getting buffering at random times of the day. This issue does not affect other streaming services like Hulu, Disney+ Amazon Prime. I have a feeling that it has something to do with the router if anyone can...

    [DEVEL] Asuswrt-Merlin Remote Log Server (Syslog & Syslog-ng Synergy) to Centralize Primary Router & AiMesh Node System Logs

    ATTENTION: It has come to my attention that there is an established Asuswrt-Merlin Add-on in AMTM called scribe and a user interface for it called uiscribe that takes the native Asuswrt-Merlin Syslog implementation to the next level, which is the recommended approach over this tutorial. The...

    Syslog demuxer for detailed iptables logging

    Fed up with the misery of logging iptables to syslog I made a log demuxer which makes it possible to demux the syslog feed into any number of separate log files. All that is needed is to change syslog to output to a named pipe, and an awk script which does the demuxing. The purpose is to demux...

    Fun with /www/user :)

    We all know that you can see the syslog from the web UI. However if you have relocated syslog somewhere else (or even if you haven't), here is an alternate way. Symlinks from /tmp/syslog.log will still work, but if you use some non-standard logging, just change the DEFAULT_LOG to your log that...
