Is anyone having internet issues, while using an USB modem or Hotspot connected to one of the USB ports??
Im having hard time accessing many big name webpages; Google, CNN, Toyota, etc. I have to constantly reload webpages because they don't fully load.
Speeds are fine, I'm maxing out my hotspots throughput at 100Mbps but, having issues with webpages.

But if I connect to the Hotpot directly over Wifi, then internet works perfectly.

Router RT-AC68, latest Fork Firmware.

Is anyone having an issue with the GUI where text on the various setup tabs is overlapping, different sizes, and even partially covered e.g. Administration page tabs?

I went from the latest Asuswrt-Merlin to the latest Fork. Had to use the Firmware Restoration Tool. Was running the Fork for years before that without this issue.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Have you cleared your browser cache/tried a different browser?

Hello,
Yes, when using the Chrome browser (76.0.3809.132 as well as 77.0.3865.75), I am seeing some overlapping text, etc. Same with MS Edge.

Safari iOS and Internet Explorer look fine, so it may be a Chromium browser issue?

Maybe, or some adblocker that you are used?

Thanks for the suggestion.
I tried both Chrome and MS Edge, adblocker on and off - same issue appears.

Not a huge deal. I remember years ago when a Chrome update caused some issues with the GUI, and John was able to update the FW.
Anyway, I hope he is well.

Thanks for your reply. I did the same thing, tried Edge and same issue. I didn't try IE, that might be working fine.

But this didn't happen before, and I've always been using Chrome. I think switching between firmwares caused the issue. Flashing stock Asuswrt then going from there might be the solution.

Mine seemed to just start around two weeks ago (perhaps a Chrome update?). I’ve also always used Chrome.
I've used this latest version of the FW since it came out in April, and it did not have the issue initially. So for me, it did not start happening with the FW version update.

For what it is worth, I am seeing the same issue with Windows Chrome but all is well with MS Edge. As I remember, this seems to have shown up after latest Chrome update (works fine on Chrome running on a Linux machine)...

Agree it's not the firmware update. I've been running it for a while now too and it was fine until 7 days ago when I flashed the main Merlin firmware. Everything was still fine. Then this morning I flashed the stock Asuswrt and then immediately John's Fork. Now the text is all screwed up.

Maybe it's not the back and forth with flashing different firmware, but some other update like Windows or the GeForce driver, which I did yesterday? But that was between the firmware flashes and everything was fine until I flashed John's Fork. I don't know, I finally got everything running the way it should so am hesitant to try and flash firmwares again just to fix this bug.

Hard Reset the router.
Flash it again with Fork.
Once it’s finished installing the firmware, hard reset the router again.

I use recovery mode to flash from one brand firmware to another brand firmwares and never had issues, instead of flashing from GUI.

I didn't have an issue until I updated Chrome earlier today. Even then everything was fine, until I cleared the browser cache and then immediately got this issue.

I did that. I went from the latest stock Asuswrt to Fork so had to use the FW Restoration Tool. I restored settings to default, did WPS NVRAM clear, flashed firmware again but through GUI and repeated the above.

It may need to be flashed with the FW Restoration Tool again. Might try it once the RT-AC86U comes back from RMA.

Sounds like Chrome updated during all the firmware flashing I did last night. Why Edge is doing the same though is beyond me. Perhaps Windows update related, or graphics driver?

Oh wow I didn't know that. So Edge must've received the same update. As long as it's a browser issue and not firmware I'm okay with it.
It’s not widely released yet, so if you didn’t download the Edge Chromium beta, you’re probably not running it. Probably another explanation for the behavior you see.

Thanks. No I didn't download it. Hmm then something else must be the cause.

It's probably one of those things that'll just fix itself one day. Don't think it's worth the effort chasing.

I got fed up with trying to figure out what had changed in Chrome that caused this so I went back to an earlier version. I disable Chrome's automatic update process so wasn't exactly sure which version I previously had but I knew I hadn't updated it for a couple of months.

Anyway, I tried the previous version (76.0.3809.100) from 15th August and that still had the problem. Then I tried the version before that (75.0.3770.80 5th June 2019) and everything was working again :).

So it looks like the problem appeared with version 76.0.3809.100.
