... was connected to the 5GHz guest network (with vlan) ...
You obviously have a very non-standard WiFi setup so I suspect that is what is causing the problem. When I last tested the WiFi scheduler it was working as expected.

Easy question for anyone familiar with nvram show|grep commands...
Every time I execute an nvram show|grep command on the router the results contain the size and space left for nvram-
size: xxxxx bytes (xxxxx left)

Is there a way to execute an nvram show|grep command without showing this?

Fortunately the unwanted "size:" line is being sent to stderr so it can be removed like so:
Code:
nvram show 2>/dev/null | grep wan0_hwaddr

I added a function to /jffs/configs/profile.add since I was searching nvram so often.
Bash:
nsg() {
        if [ -n "$1" ]; then
                nvram show 2>/dev/null | grep -i "$1" | sort
        else
                echo "ERROR: search string required."
        fi
}

Then I can just run nsg wan0_hwaddr

I was on 380.70 for a long time on my N66U. Recently I observed the router getting reset while my phone gets connected to the 5GHz network. Could it be a issue with the AC standard client connection causing problem? I have the phone for over a year but the issue is observed only recently.
Quoting myself just to update about this issue. The reset was still happening and upon further googling, it seems many have reported the issue with the OnePlus 6 phone and N66U combination causing the router to reset when connected in either wireless bands.
https://www.reddit.com/r/OnePlus6/comments/8suqm8
Solution suggested is to disable the NAT acceleration and seems to have worked for many. I have also tried and monitoring now. Though I am not very convinced with the solution because the issue cropped up only very recently though I have been using this phone for last 1.5 years.

Before trying this out, i tried disabling the MAC randomization in the Phone, but still the router was resetting.

Question: Is there any way to debug the router logs to see what is causing this issue? I don't see anything in the system logs before the reset happened.

PS. This issue has nothing to do with this build, but seems affecting all firmwares.

Hi all,
I've been using john's fork and lurking this forum for awhile now but finally decided to get an account.
The discussion on this thread is great and everyone seems so helpful.

As for my (minor, but possibly important to some such as myself) contribution, I have discovered that recent versions of Linux are using samba 4.11+ which defaults to SMB2 as the minimum protocol.
Samba does not appear to allow decoupling NetBIOS from the SMB version like Windows 10 does.
This has the effect of breaking the Network Map -> Client Status screen in the sense that Linux PCs receive the "other" icon rather the "PC" icon (even with samba and winbind installed and firewall set correctly).

The fix/workaround I have found is relatively easy:
On the affected client, under /etc/samba/smb.conf place "server min protocol = NT1" under the "workgroup = WORKGROUP" line, save, then reboot.
This will restore NetBIOS (and SMB1 :/) functionality to make the PC icon appear on the Client List once again and should not interfere with connecting to Windows 10 machines.
Connecting from Windows 10 to Linux may be affected but that was not the case on my network; based on distro/version, YMMV.

Ultimately, it may be better for someone more knowledgeable than myself to find a way to make the Client List use a newer discovery method such as avahi/wsdd.
As you are all likely to be aware, re-enabling SMB1 may introduce a security risk in some environments.
I found I can mitigate this somewhat by adding "restrict anonymous = 2" under the "server min protocol = NT1" line.

Hi

is it possible to update vpn client to "cipher CHACHA20-POLY1305" or must openvpn need to update first?

Needs both OpenVPN 2.5 and OpenSSL 1.1.1. And OpenVPN 2.5 is still in beta.

Ok, im using your alpha build with my Android and chacha20 and its working fine. I can connect with both gcm and chacha20 cipher. I can wait was just curious.

Does anyone else have to log into their router twice? Right after the first login, the router again asks for username and password.

P.S.- This is when logging in with a web browser.

I have problem with ANY AsusWRT firmware, including this. In my country there is some forbidden websites, primary torrents. With AdvancedTomato firmware websites works fine. With any AsusWRT doesnt load, i get Timeout error. I though it may be DNS problem, but when i do ping command i see that it resolves correct IT. What's may be the problem?? Can anyone confirm custom DNS (cloadFlare, google) work ok for you?
I would use AdvancedTomato, BUT with AsusWRT based firmware i get 300Mbs wifi speed, while with Tomato only 144Mbs. Helps when transferring files in local lan.

Yes. this is first firmware that doesn't work with OPERA. had to use shirttiest browser - CHROME to be able to use it. With Opera it always ask login details and can not pass initial setup window (stucks on wifi).

@tmx All custom DNS servers work fine with this firmware or any other AsusWRT firmware. If you're having problems you'll have to tell us what country you're in and what websites you are trying to access. I am in the UK and most torrent websites are blocked by the ISPs here. I would have to connect through a VPN server to access them.

Strange thing just happened. Now it works. maybe my both computers had DNS cached... Strange because whenever i write AdvacedTomato FW it works instantly after install. with this fw it didnt for half day. Starnge and it happened not once but with every my attempt to use AsusWRT based fw.
Anyway THANKS to author for keep updating this FW for us who use older gear!

Hello, I was trying the latest release, it was my first attempt, and I found that there is not possible to change 4g mode authentication type. I need to change it to PAPO/CHAP but after applying changes it reverts back to none. All other settings are fine and they are saved instead of authentication. I made factory reset several times, but still no go. Any idea what could be wrong?

I hope someone has figured this out. Is there any way to completely disable the "cannot login until user has logged out" feature? I do have an "unsetuser" script-

#!/bin/sh
# echo $PATH | grep -q "\/sbin" || export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin
logger -p 1 -t $(basename $0) "STARTING SCRIPT, PARAMETER: $1"
nvram unset login_ip_str
nvram unset login_timestamp
nvram unset login_ip
nvram commit

that works but it would be great to permanently disable this abomination once and for all. Is this possible?

What is the use case here? Is it because you left another PC logged into the UI and moved to another PC? Remember that the entire UI is designed around the principle that only one person will be using it at any one time. It is not a multi-user interface and allowing more than one user simultaneously is just asking for trouble IMHO.

If you need to "force off" the other session you could just restart httpd from a terminal session.

There are just a lot of times I run into this brick wall. Like today when I reset the router to redo all the settings from a clean slate. Add computers (including the one I'm using) to manual DHCP list and BANG! Can't get back in. What if I connect to a vpn? POW! Can't get in. Use a different NIC? BAP! Can't get in. You get the idea. Thanks for the httpd restart advice.

I'm going to be moving to a new Fiber connection with Bell Canada that's rated at 1.5gig/980. ( deal I just couldn't pass up). I've been using John's fork on my AC68U for a long time and I prefer not having to get a new router forcing me off his fork. Those with experience in here what is the maximum theoretical speed you can get using the AC68U? I've overclocked to 1200mhz CPU/666mhz RAM so hopefully that should help get me a little more juice out of the connection. Thanks for any assistance.

should get you to the max ~940mbps (the rest up to 1000 are protocol overheads)
