    everything seems to be working fine but i can't seem to get the built-in torrent client to connect to the tracker.
    I am using the router as a wireless ethernet bridge.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Which says to me " use my forked 3rd party firmware if you want but if your router turns to crap I don't care and have no idea how to fix it " ........ reason enough to stay well away.

    asuswrt merlin kept crashing my router. it worked for a while but then it started acting weird.

    I'm finding that the Tomato firmware is even faster on Samba transfers . I'm using a USB drive to store files and it's way faster than Asuswrt merlin firmware.

    Anyways, I was able to fix it by installing entware-ng and running the
    opkg install transmission-web command.

    If anybody needs detailed information on this, let me know.

    Good you found a solution .

    Merlin stopped supporting that model some time ago.
