    He's just teasing everyone since he is helping in the development of my fork build that supports the later rev AC68 variants (He's running an AC1900P, stock clock is 1400 MHz).

    Cleaning up a few loose ends.....public beta is around the corner :)

    A small update to keep things current.....

    LATEST RELEASE: Update-26E4
    5-August-2017
    Merlin fork 374.43_2-26E4j9527
    Download http://bit.ly/1YdgUcP
    ============================

    Following are the major changes (full changelog is in the zip files)

    Update-26E4 Highlights
    • Fixes for networkmap CVE-2017-11344, CVE-2017-11345 and CVE-2017-11420 (KiloFoxtrotPapa/Merlin backports)
    • Fix guest access to samba shares if you changed the default login name - @Lotta Cox
    • Change the behavior of the On/Off slider on the QoS page
      The slider is now a true On/Off, consistent with other On/Off firmware switches. User the Save button to save changes to the QoS parameters.
    • Further improvements in managing http authorizations
      Note: The various browsers are tightening http auth security in different ways. Chrome has implemented changes that essentially disable the 'Cancel' button under all http authorizations. You must now close the associated browser window if you with to abort the authorization process. For IE, trying to 'Cancel' the http authorization will result in the 'IP Address has changed' page instead of the expected 401 error, and you will again need to close the associated browser window to proceed.
    • Fix for some cases where Port Forwarding/UPNP may not work when CTF is active (Merlin backport)
    • Added missing samba36 file to the git repo - @Santiago C


    As always, a reminder to have a backup of /jffs in case the jffs space needs to be reformatted due to increases in firmware size.

    Awesome! <insert cheering emoticon here>
    Thanks @john9527 for coding and @cybrnook for risking the wrath of the lady of the house.

    Now got to find some time to make a fresh start... (summer holidays here, nine-year-old at home, so this takes careful planning ;) But it'll be soon...:D

    Maybe an idea to link to the beta fork for the models mentioned above in the first post?

    Its true I am leaving the Johns Fork and returning to Merlin, I know Shocked huh, I understand.

    Sorry, just cannot deal with constantly having to reboot my routers to get IP address's Was fine until the last build again.

    Best of luck all

    Use whichever works best for you......if it's Merlin, great. In all honesty, I hadn't changed anything that would affect Media Bridge between the builds you say worked and those that didn't because I couldn't identify anything to fix. Whatever is affecting your setup, I don't know what it is, even after tearing down my setup and putting in a Media Bridge just to test. I hope that Merlin works out better for you.

    Well I, on the other hand, am adding the fork to a previously unsupported model through some kind of programming black magic. :)

    Question about the dual WAN settings:

    [​IMG]
    (ignore the text overlay, that is for another script)
    The numbers do not add up, compared to Merlin calculations, can you elaborate why?

    [​IMG]

    In Merlin the following is true:
    Failover is: Interval*Failover
    Failback is: Interval*Failback

    In your 26E3 this appears to be this:
    Failover is: Interval*Failover
    Failback is: (Interval+Delay)*Failback
    Now, if I test it with this formula, the actual times are higher than the calculate ones.
    Say, Failover is 4*2 = 6 seconds. But the failover kicks in much later, at about 12 seconds.
    The same is for Failback time.

    Is there a reason why they are off by a large margin in your fork?
    In Merlin I can count on these calculations, they work 100% accurate, at least since 380.67.

    The answer is.....I have no idea. Someone would have to try to do a compaison going through their uncommented code. And since I have no way to test dual-wan, it's not something I'm really inclined to try.

    I thought you were tinkering in that field an expected a clarifying replay...
    No problem, I'll figure it out.

    Earlier today, I was telling another firmware developer how the wanduck code should be thrown into a room, a grenade tossed into that room, and the door locked.

    I tinkered with a couple of things on some specific issues, but nothing comes immediately to mind. I'll take a look to see if anything pops out.

    One thing that did jump out....I changed the ping test to require two successive fails before initiating a fo (it's testing with a single ping and we had at least 1 case where we saw a false positive)
