    So you went back from the alpha/test version to the latest stable release.

    Nothing has changed compared to before (no change configuration), but now "printer wifi" seems stable and Airtime Fairness is Enable.
    Mystery of faith!

    What wireless printers are you using. Do any of them have scan functionality. When last I made a run at this, I lost both wireless scanning and sonos. I'd be interested if anyone knows if these have cleared up.

    Did you try disabling airtime fairness on both bands? That cleared up my airprint issue. I read somewhere else that Sonos suggests the same fix.

    Flashed onto my AC3100. Seems fine so far. No disconnects like with 380.65_2 or 65.

    Hi, will this support BRT-AC828? I have with me the BRT-AC828, compliment from Asus since its probably the first Asus model to actually put the title as Wireless-AC2600 Duan WAN VPN WiFi Router but practically running an older OpenVPN 2.3.2. This model is running Qualcomm IPQ8065 1.7Ghz CPU, which makes this the fastest CPU for Asus routers. But as everyone know, Asus has great hardware but you cannot use any of the latest VPN features with its stock firmware.

    Is there any Merlin versions support Qualcomm, I most probably lose the Dual WAN support using Merlin but I can always restore the stock if needed.

    Thank you

    I was thinking of it, but does not disabling airtime fairness degrade peformance if one has a mixed environment?

    I only use wifi for phones and such really everything else in the house is wired
    anyway the other day i connected my xbox one wireless on the 5ghz band
    to play overwatch (its usually wired) and was getting 2 seconds running on the spot all the time
    every 2mins or so switched it to 2.4ghz after the game still doing it

    turned off airtime fairness next game on both bands hasnt done it since
    the only other devices connected in the house where two
    Galaxy Note 4's both idle one on 2.4ghz band one on 5ghz

    why would airtime faireness cause such lag on an idle network

    This was not the thread for asking that question, again. This thread is for issues arising from the 66 alpha firmware. Eric would have announced his intent to support that model if he intended to do so. Also, why are you interested in beta testing Merlin's firmware. I am sure that Asus wants you to use the stock firmware for testing seeing as they sent you a complimentary unit.

    That is difficult answer. This link should help you understand what airtime fairness is and how it could affect your individual network clients and under what circumstances.

    Wifi is a complex technology, where timings can be critical. Doesn't take much to create compatibility issues with other devices. MU-MIMO, Airtime Fairness, Beamforming - those are all extensions that haven't been fully tested by everyone involved (i.e. both the router AND the client manufacturers).
