    Hi guys,

    Currently, I have the two devices (DSL-AC68U and RT-AC68U) in an AiMesh and everything works as expected.
    Due to changes in my office, I need to isolate client(s) connected to LAN Port 4 on the RT-AC68U so that they do not have access to other clients within my network (as described in this thread: https://www.snbforums.com/threads/f...guest-network-for-asus-merlin-rt-ac68u.18969/).

    So my question is: Can I install Merlin on the RT-AC68U to run the custom scripts described in the thread above and still have an AiMesh with the non-merlin DSL-AC68U or is this just not possible?

    Thanks for your help, guys!

    I think you cant run these scripts on an AP-node without routing.

    But wait for GNUton's new DSL-release, maybe he will support Aimesh too like Merlin does now with 384.13.

    Looking into Gnuton's changelog of the latest release I saw a bulletin stating

    • rc: allow experimental AiMesh toggle to survive factory default resets
    Does that mean there is an option already present? (I didnt find it yet)

    No. A lot more work was required to enable support for it. That was just a flag I added for private testing before work formally began.
