    AWESOME work once again @GNUton - flawless firmware upgrade from stable 384.14.2 to 385.15.0_alpha2 :).
    Running in a small office environment on VDSL 40Mbps down 10Mbps up with latest amtm [FW version] plus Diversion pixelserv-tls / Entware / Skynet / FreshJR QOS / Scribe / scMerlin / uiDivStats / uiScribe / Stubby DNS / ntpd {firmware} / Disk check and 1Gb Swap file.

    Survived several reboots ... and is rock steady :D:D {Thumbs-Up}

    No. WAN can be configured to be single or dual.
    Supported WAN types are DSL, ethernet and usb.

    Hi, there is a ticket open for that feature here https://github.com/gnuton/asuswrt-merlin.ng/issues/17.
    "Unfortunately" the ticket is up to date. At the moment there are people interested in sponsoring but not yet people working on it. If you wanna give it a try you may find all the info you need in the ticket! :D

    could you support DSL-AC51?

    Sadly not - GNUton, despite his early ambitions on page 1 of this thread, only supports the DSL-AC68U.

    NB - the firmware he supplied is based on RMerlin firmware for the RT-AC68U to which he merges the DSL section.
    So - to begin with the base router must be one on which Merlin-Ware is supported.

    See this link for a guide on supported routers ...

    That model does not use Asuswrt but a custom firmware developed for it.

    I was trying to build a custom firmware for Mediatek based DSL Asus routers but then I gave up when I faced a lot of issues in building it on the cloud. No idea if the circleci support is improved now...

    I still would love to get something working for these routers but it won't be a Merlin firmware fork, but rather it could be an improved version of the Asus Firmware.

    In any case, I do not have time ATM to work on it right now... but I would be more than happy in supporting anybody willing to continue my work.

    You can achieve DoT by installing Stubby add-on which you will find here ...
    https://www.snbforums.com/threads/stubby-installer-asuswrt-merlin.49469/

    If you upgrade to @GNUton firmware 384.15_Allpha2 - you will already have amtm installed.
    After installing Stubby from the command line mentioned in the link above - you will find that "Stubby"will appear in the amtm menu.

    Unbound - a validating, recursive, caching DNS resolver - your very own lightweight DNS server with DNSSEC built in.

    Just a heads up to all those @GNUton / Merlin DSL-AC68U users - if you have the latest GNUton 384.15_0_Alpha2 firmware - you can install unbound from amtm menu. It works incredibly well on the 3 DSL's I have and has made a really significant performance improvement to throughput on the routers.

    More info here ...
    https://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/unbound/about/ and for install script if not using amtm ...

    Part of the problem is a number of these do not run Asuswrt, but some other firmware. That's the case for the DSL-AC51U as well as the DSL-AC88U. Anyone supporting these would pretty much have to start from scratch, on a per-device basis.

    Hi folks,
    I have just tagged a new stable release based on Merlin 384.15 and It's already available on github.
    Enjoy!

    Hi @SeamusMAcSpud ...did you find any solution for this issue? Is happening exactly the same to me, but with RT-AC86U. I've enabled all settings for multicast optimization (IGMP Proxy, Snooping, etc), but nothing works.

    Thanks,
    Regards!

    Hi @maxiarg14 - off topic - this thread is for the GNUton firmware mods for DSL-AC68U.

    Have you tried a search for "IPTV" in the search box top right of each page?
    Lots of dedicated links discussing how best to get IPTV working - here are some ...
    https://www.snbforums.com/search/1296596/?q=IPTV&o=date&c[node]=42

    Sorry I can't help you - no IPTV here down South ... :(.

    Hi There,

    I'd love to develop custom Merlin firmware for the DSL-AC52U. Could the OP be kind enough to guide me? :)
