What have you configured under USB Application > 3G/4G > USB Modem / USB Tethering ?

Check that USB tethering is still activated on the smartphone.

If you click on the 3G button does it give you any more information?

Sorry, I'm out of ideas. This has worked for me on my RT-AC68U but I've never tried it on an RT-N66W. When I used it I did notice that the phone's connection to the internet needs to be very good otherwise it doesn't work properly.

This seems to be a problem with the firmware. As reported here, the latest release made Android USB tethering impossible for me - but John's Asuswrt-Merlin 374 LTS fork works fine.

I think that your RT-N66W is probably the white version of my RT-N66U (?); if so that may be an option.

Does it make a difference to use English in the router? Maybe a possible language bug?

He changed it to English.
His screenshot shows the same language as before. If John is going to be able to fix this problem he needs to know exactly what steps were involved to make this work.

@ColinTaylor, I noticed that and deleted my post. But not before you had quoted me. :)

But now I'm thinking he may have simply uploaded the same screen snip by accident?

i downloaded the latest firmware from here. the link for the firmware habna sent me worked.
Thanks. So the new firmware version did work then? You said in post #11 "the same problem still exists".
