    try clear browser cache or change browser to test.

    Maybe also good to try a restart of router after the above steps.

    By the way, this thread is not meant for bug report. Please post them in appropriate threat or create new thread.

    @RMerlin / Eric,
    As always, many many thanks for your continuing work on this project. Had it running on my 66, and now running on my 88.

    Have a very good new year :)

    @RMerlin, as many have already said: thank you so much for your hard work, your firmware was the main reason I bought an Asus RT-AC68U, and switched from Netgear/DD-WRT to Asus/Asuswrt-Merlin. I have no and haven't had any regrets whatsoever, I truly appreciate and respect how you, unselfishly and dedicated, keep putting so many hours in this project, supporting many models with high quality, feature rich firmware. I'm wishing you and your beloved ones all the best for 2018 and keep up the great work!

    Thanks so much for all the hard work Merlin! I've never regreted moving over to your version. It solved most of my issues, and when there is aproblem, it's great to get such rapid feedback from you and the community you have built! I hope everyone has a great new year!

    A question for folks: I currently have the 88U, and it is working well. I have about 16 clients, ranging from PC"s, iPhones, to IoT devices. I don't use a usb driver on the router, because I have a synology NAS. Is there any compelling reason for me to move to the newer 86U?

    Brad

    I know I have saw mention of the GT-5300 not being supported. I have no plans for that model...

    But is the RT-AC5300 in the same boat ? For future updates to the new versions ? If it is depreciated, rather than me posting to another topic.

    I do apologize if this has been asked, I usually just troll around and see if any updates pop or someone mentions it. I don't have many issues with my setup. Most solved from that lurking around reading all the posts I can find on my issues and setting about fixing them.

    Regardlessly if the new year includes my model or not, I have great admiration for the project and the work you accomplished. May the new year carry you upward and onward to new places.

    Tom

    edit : Found my answer for this question "Anyone know if its supported or will be supported by Johns fork?
    " ;)

    It's up to Asus. Until they release GPL code for it, there's nothing I can do.

    Sure hope you will get an update out for my RT-AC68U soon. Ver 382.1881 on my router and can't download any versions on your site. I want to switch from cable to optic fiber at the beginning of te new year without buying a new router.

    Thank you for your ongoing hard work. I love this project although I only use the openvpn server of all the possibilities it offers, but it gives me a warm felling and I like the magician hat in the UI. :)

    Sad news :( My 66U has been faithful for 4 years now and no plan to change it yet, I bought this asus router when I found about your firmware, when this happens I´ll check the options probably a new router or go with johns fork (great firmware) in the meanwhile
    Thanks for the support and happy new year!

    I'm new to the community, having just discovered this great project when hacking together a VPN. I am deeply impressed with the thoughtful improvements over ASUS' already-great code base. Please accept this n00b's thanks and appreciation for your work. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2018!

    Thank you Merlin and the beta testers. Without you guys I would have to deal with Asus firmware. Have a happy New Years.

    Thank you, Eric and a Happy New Year!

    Is there a chance to see this year VLAN feature implemented?

    You'd have to ask Asus, implementing this on my own is out of the question.
