    After setting up all the desired amtm scripts yesterday, I thought I would do a spot check on CPU usage this morning, as I have had problems with high CPU usage previously. However, this has revealed another problem - I can't access the GUI. I've tried from my Windows 10 laptop and also via the app on my Android mobile, but neither are working. The router itself is working as I am able to write this message and also use my employer's VPN. I can't do anything else until I finish work later today, but I was wondering if anyone else had had this problem with their RT-AC86U routers?

    Do you have scMerlin installed?

    Use PuTTY to ssh in and run the restart web interface.

    I hadn't installed scMerlin, but I've just followed your instructions and can now access the GUI. Many thanks for that.
