And you need to enter passwordI downloaded putty already. I'm not sure if I'm doing it wrong but I put my IP "192.168.1.1" to the host name. But I still get an error message. See attached pics:
Hi again, tried your suggestion.That shouldn't be happening after a RESET, which means something is wrong with FW 3264 code. Do it the hard way then:
To know what language is set:
# nvram get preferred_lang (it should be JP)
To set the language:
# nvram set preferred_lang=EN
# nvram commit
Probably after this you will see the language option available on GUI.
Tried the link you just gave. Still the same result. I'm trying to speculate that the Asus Router bought in Japan has a different kind of hardware configuration or something... Now, I'm running out of options already.Your FW is goofed, try to download from here and compare with your previous file:
Downgrading since 380.3264 is more difficult now
You can't roll back through the GUI as you will get the incompatible firmware message but you can roll back through the CFE miniWeb Server or with the Asus Restoration Tools
Yes, this indeed solves my problem. Thank you very much!I'm using a AC68U bought in Japan too and I'm having the same problem.
Downgrading to 184.108.40.206_380_1842 solved it. Obviously something is wrong with 380.3264.
Should I be able to flash my Japan RT-AC88U with your firmware with no issue? (Considered this option and you've confirmed it with this reply... better option to use this than wait for Asus to resolve this..)As odd as it might seem, this was done on purpose by Asus. Routers with a JP region will no longer allow you to change to a different language. The reasons behind this change are apparently marketing-related.
I lifted that restriction within my firmware, since I don't have a marketing department dictating me silly things to do.
Thanks and I understood your point.Since this was deliberately done by Asus, there's nothing from their point of view to fix - it's how they want it to work. So unless they have a change of heart, this isn't gonna change in the future.
