I cannot install Merlin on my AC88U

Hi, when I load the latest version of Merlin RT-AC88U_386.7_2, when I try to load it on my AC88U, it tells me "Signed Version" and does not load the firmware.

DSL-AC88U is not supported. RT-AC88U only.

You're loading the wrong firmware. You have a DSL-AC88U, not a RT-AC88U. Merlin doesn't make firmware for the DSL-AC88U.

I just realized it..
Does RT-AC88U support ADSL? Or can you recommend a better modem?
Now I have to send this back..

No xDSL modem in RT-AC88U. The best modem for your ISP is your ISP recommended modem. It will be guaranteed compatible with their network.

Not for this specific Modem/Router model.

I'm not sure this model runs Asuswrt. Ask here:


I would get a separate modem and an Asuswrt-Merlin supported router instead. Why binding the router with your current ISP service?

Mainly I bought this router for the ability to install a fixed indoor vpn .. My ISP is Telecom Italia

I understand, but you didn't do your homework well. Get a modem recommended by your ISP and a router with Asuswrt-Merlin support.


One of often recommended models here on SNB Forum is RT-AX86U. There is a cheaper alternative available RT-AX86S.

The DSL-AX88U does not even run Asuswrt, so supporting it in either Asuswrt-Merlin or Gnuton's fork is flat out impossible.
