    This was more intended to the script developers, as it's not something simple to do yourself if you're not already familiar with Asuswrt's code.

    It is working now. I powered off an let it sit for five minutes. VPN started automatically after power turned back on. I then installed fake-hwclock. Doubt I really need it. I tehn did a reboot thru the gui and it started okay this time. I'll do an occasional reboot and power on/off as we progress thru the 380.68 releases to keep an eye on it.

    nvram show | grep ntp:
    Code:
    ntp_server0=pool.ntp.org
    ntp_server1=time.nist.gov
    ntp_ready=1
    ntp_server_tried=pool.ntp.org

    That's actually an old bug also present in the stock firmware. Finally took the time to configure two separate clients so I could track it down and fix it.

    Https works fine with Firefox 55. Same issue as described with Chrome 60. Hangs and 1/2 fills in, can exit and login with http then go back to https and it seems to work. At least sometimes. It is a lot slower tho and pages flash white as they update. Edge seems to work fine as well except the slowness Something kooky with Chrome and https apparently.

    In other news working great on AC66 so far. Thanks for your efforts!

    Ok i have not tried the HTTPS method what is involved in using this. Basically how do i do this. I assume its more secure then HTTP. Sorry i am a little behind the times here and does this work with only merlin builds ? Can someone explain ?

    Sorry if i am off topic. Jim !!

    Not the right place indeed, but if you read this (the explanation below) it will be clear. It's a commercial site, I'm not affiliated in any way, but their explanation is just plain and simple. You can configure it in the router' s settings whether you want to use http or https for using the webbased user interface. Just like the connection to your online bank is secured (encrypted). If you only access it locally, so you have no need for access when you're away from home, you're fine leaving it at http (unless you have a nest of wannabee hacker-kids at home, then you're better off with https... :rolleyes:)

    Now, back on topic, as this thread is for feedback on the alpha builds for 360.68 o_O

    For the guys with https loading problem and firefox: Delete the "cert8.db" file @ C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*profile*.

    Be aware that all custom certificates and exceptions are lost afterwards.

    EDIT: This fix only fixes the problem when youre not even able to open the page ;)

    I'm really digging the new icons in the new refresh build they look impressive, I wonder what the next ui change is going to be.

    Hello Merlin,

    For the AC-5300 which of the files on mediafire is the most current? I am confused because the dates don't line up with the numbering.

    Thanks,

    J

    The series of characters at the end of the filename denotes the Git commit hash from which the firmware was built, it's not chronological. Drop the -g, and look for the first couple of characters on Github. In this case, -g5d6b6dd means it was built from that snapshot:

    https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/commit/5d6b6dd6285f3deca61919e9f170ddf3faab00c9

    You can also see those short hash values on the commit log:

    https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/commits/master


    You have to rely on the date to determine which snapshot is newer.

    I saw there was a new 380.68 alpha 2 available dated Aug 7 RT-AC88U_380.68_alpha2-g5d6b6dd.zip I received an invalid firmware message when I tried to flash.

    Does anyone know if NTP Daemon for ASUSWRT/Merlin is compatible with this version? The install knocked the link away from the tools section.

    Anything that modified the menu layout will need to be updated to work with the new system.

    I see, you're 12 hour ahead from my time zone. BTW, did the firmware works now?

    @Xentrk That's what you get "future man" :)

    Glad the fw flash worked for you.
