    Asuswrt-Merlin 384.6 Beta is now available for all supported models, except for the RT-AC87U (as Asus hasn't updated that model to the 382_50624 code). The focus of this release was the update to the latest GPL code available. The highlights:

    • Updated GPL to 384_21045(with 382_50624 binary components for the RT-AC56U and RT-AC3200).
    • Added option to enable DNS rebind protection, available on the DHCP page.
    • Updated dnsmasq to 2.80test2-17-g51e4eee, nano to 2.98 and curl to 7.60.0.
    • Added AES-*-GCM ciphers to the OpenVPN legacy cipher list.
    • Added support for the -p switch to netstat. This has been integrated into the Network Tools page, so now netstat will also report which process is currently tied to a specific port/socket.
    • WTFast support was removed from the RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100 and RT-AC5300, as the precompiled components are incompatible with modern versions of curl (wtfast would crash at start on these models). Only Asus/WTFast can fix this.
    • When enabled, DNSSEC validation is now enforced on DNS replies (due to a change in dnsmasq's behaviour). If you are no longer able to do do name resolution on various domains while DNSSEC is enabled, it means your upstream DNS servers do not support DNSSEC. You should either disable it, or switch to DNSSEC compatible servers.

    Please keep discussions in this thread to this specific release. Off-topic posts might possibly be removed.

    Installed fine, will update if I get any issues, also WTFast is a waste of resources since I never saw any updates to it in the first place, I guess I won't miss it.

    Also will DNS sec work on the DNS filter, if for example I set a DNS server that supports it?

    Nice to see the SMB tweak implmented, should be some decent preformance improvements for those previously not using it.

    We have to wait for Asus to release the new GPL for RT-AC87u

    Upgraded my rt-ac1900p to beta1, right over alpha2. Everything running great.

    Thank you, Eric!

    Anyone using opendns? Is it failing with dnssec? Stupid cisco bought opendns then stopped working on it. Might need to switch to cloudflare but the protection is helpful.

    Quad9 provides both protection and DNSSEC.

    OpenDNS does not support DNSSEC, it never has. This has nothing to do with Cisco...

    No, and don't expect any since that is part of the Linux kernel, which does not get upgrades.
