Asus Merlin Media-Bridge Mode Bug

Hi,
the media-bridge operation mode is seriously bugged in merlin firmware.
Any value you insert in lan settings is not read and used by the bridge.
Also the bridge announces itself as a DHCP server, confusing the devices on the lan.
Asus firmware is ok.

Router model?
Firmware version(s)?

Right, my fault.

AX68U and AX56U
firmware 386.7 and 386.5_2

I include a screenshot of the lan settings that both merlin firmware ignores. Infact you have to push a route command via ssh to make the router connect to the gateway on 192.168.1.1
Asus firmware is ok.

I suggest that you try stepping back through previous firmware versions until you find one that works properly. That will help RMerlin identify and fix the problem.

I have routers that are running media bridge mode from both versions, 386.5_2 and 386.7 with no issue. (AC68u and AC3100). I would suggest a WPS reset and then setup manually again. It should allow you to use dhcp or static IP address for the router during setup.
