    I'm new to the forums, & I am considering replacing my router(s) with the RT-AC66U & Merlin. But before I plonk down my cash, I need the following questions answered (I have searched before posting but can find nothing in the Merlin forum).

    I run 2 FTC VDSL lines, one of which is provided by SKY, which requires MER encapsulation to get a WAN IP address. My current set-up uses DD-WRT with the following script to enable this functionality:

    killall udhcpc
    /usr/sbin/udhcpc -i eth1 -V "5.27.1a4N|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0" -c "##SKYUN&PW##" -p /var/run/udhcpc.pid -s /tmp/udhcpc &

    NB: In the Startup Script eth1 is the designation of the WAN port.

    Will Merlin support this config?

    My Second question concerns DNSMasq.
    I use DNSMasq to assign specific clients to my secondary gateway/router, using the following additional commands (again in DD-WRT):

    dhcp-option = net:Infinity, option:router,
    dhcp-option = net:Infinity, 6,

    Reading through the forums I am fairly confident this DNSMasq config can be achieved with Merlin, but I would be grateful if someone can confirm it is possible for me.

    Thanks in advance
