    Mine seems to work fine and I do not have the same problem.

    @GNUton, if you don't have a dsl anymore are you still going to continue with development?

    It's a long time I do not have a DSL connection now.. and I'm still actively maintaining this project.
    The DSL-AC68U is still my main router to access the internet but I do not use its DSL capabilities for now.

    May I ask a feature ? Sorry if this is has been answered before,

    Is voip function supported eitheir from asuswrt0-merlin firmware itself or from this firmware?

    I currently use dsl-ac68u as modem/router but because I dont want to have 2 devices I dont use the voip services of my provider.

    thx in advanced and well done @GNUton , keep the good work mate ;)

    I can confirm that the problem referred to has never occurred in any of the @GNUton firmware releases - and certainly not in ver 384.14.0

    I have 3 DSL-AC68U’s in the “family” at different locations - all running @GNUton released firmware - and none have had any issues with reconnecting via PPP on DSL lines after reboot.

    Are you going to incorporate 384.15 into your GNUtonwrt realm? I am curious to see how well the add-ons adapt to the dsl branch.

    Can indeed confirm this bug, and the workaround does rectify it.

    I really don't believe this is a bug in the firmware - or many folk would experience the problem.
    Suggest a factory reset and then reconfigure all settings manually without restoring from any prior settings.

    Best procedure to follow can be found here ...

    Hi there,
    I have built a new pre-release https://github.com/gnuton/asuswrt-merlin.ng/releases/tag/384.14_2-gnuton0_alpha1 which is waiting for some testers.
    I would like to thank all the people who help me in testing the firmware and support other users! cheers mates!
    I just noticed Asus has released new binary blobs so I will update the firmware most probably this weekend. No idea what are the changes yet there.

    Hi there,
    I have merged the latest ASUS binaries in 384.14_2 and here is the build: https://github.com/gnuton/asuswrt-merlin.ng/releases/tag/384.14_2-gnuton0_alpha2
    This will require more testing than the alpha1 because ASUS has changed a few functions.
    So once again, please test and let me know if the latest build works for you. Expecially the DSL part which I cannot test by myself.
    Thanks a lot.

    This one running rock steady as ever ... includes Merlin fixes between 384.14 and 384.14_2 - so better than ever.
    Great work @GNUton once again ... {Thumbs Up} :D.

    I can see lots of changes and bug fixes from Asus in their latest release.
    I will test this alpha 2 of yours over the weekend and report back.
    I don't doubt it will be as plain sailing as usual ;).

    Ooops - this one did not work for me ... uploaded fine - but then on reboot could not gain access to router at all - webgui or via SSH.
    Boot process seemed unstable - lots of intermittent LED activity.
    Sorry no logs - had to revert to running Asus Rescue to stock firmware to get the router back.

    Suggest you hold off anyway - and rather do next release when RMerlin releases 384.15 - which has some amazing additional features.

    The cautionary from @GNUton was clear - which is why I held off on the alpha 2 until ample time to play with the alpha [expect issues]
    If you went ahead after reading my post above - then :rolleyes: ...

    While router is powered on - press and hold the reset button for at least 6 seconds - then press the power button and hold it in while still hanging onto the reset button ... wait until the power LED blinks slowly - then release. Run Rescue program asap with Asus Stock firmware selected. Do not restore settings from backup - reconfigure manually.

    I suggest you stick with GNUton 384.14_0 stable release - it is rock steady if carefully an correctly configured.

    I'm having problems flashing stock, reaches 85% then fails. Is there a smaller stock firmware or a way to flash from usb?
