    fe80: IPv6 addresses are local and this looks to me like somewhere you use an IPv6 address where a hostname (for IPv4? :rolleyes:) is needed. :oops:

    Hi,

    I actually using 380.65 on my RT-N66U and I experiencing an issue with a DNS. I have added a record into the hosts on the router via hosts.add script file. When I make nslookup to the host I added it responds correctly. The same happens via web interface from Network Tools. But when I make the same nslookup from the local PC then I get different answer. I already tried to clean DNS cache several time, rebooting PC, ... but nothing helped. My problem is that I have domain name for my external IP and I need to translate my domain name to local IP address instead of the external one. Reason for this is that I do not need to reconfigure all my mobile devices when I'm using them outside or when they are connected to local network. It was working before, when I was on 380.63/64, and I'm not sure if the latest update can break this.

    nslookup from router:
    nslookup-router.JPG

    nslookup from PC:
    nslookup-PC.JPG

    Any idea how to get it work again? I'm on Windows 10 x64.

    Thanks.

    PS: It was a Windows issue, and I resolved it by reseting network with this commands:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    NETSH winsock reset catalog
    NETSH int ipv4 reset reset.log
    NETSH int ipv6 reset reset.log

    maybe it can help somebody.

    Just doing another "me too: on 65_2; consistent problems maintaining connections to WAN and connecting via webUI/ssh. rolled back to 65_0 and router is stable now (RT-AC3200)

    I'll try the alpha build in a few days.

    Hello

    I'm a fan of Merlin running on my severals Asus routers for several years now and I love it.
    Thank you. Thank you for all the efforts done. Thank you forum fans.

    Last week I started to use AiProtection - Time Scheduling for my son last "Étape" at school so it will be easier for him to focus on his homework and examen preps.
    Yesterday (saturday) he complained at 9:05 that his link was still down. I had to open it starting at 8:00 (instead of 9:00) and that fixed it.
    Again today the problem reoccured. His time on his phone is good so as the time on the Asus.
    I also rebooted his phone around 9:15 and it was still blocked.

    I revisited all the schedule by widening the windows.

    Anyhow my work around is ok for now and I will do some more tests this week on my own.
    Probably this behavior is the same with the original rom ....

    Anyone have experienced that?

    Try rebooting the router. The service might be confused by last week's shift to summer time.

    DST begins on Sunday, March 26 at 2:00 AM. In Sweden
    The clocks will be put forward an hour.

    Look under Admin-system if "DST time zone changes starts" is set correctly. By default i think asus set it on ,month 3,2th sun,hours 2. This is not your case.But maybe im wrong

    Yes, set the correct week for switching to summer time in the settings under Administration! :eek:

    In this March it's the 4th Sunday to switch time +1 hour and in this year October it will be even the 5th Sunday to switch back!

    Upgraded to 65_2 on an AC88. The only unexpected thing was a blank MAC address under WAN / Internet connection. It took a few minutes to discover that as everything connected to the router, but the router wouldn't connect to the internet. I selected MAC Clone (because its fast/easy) and after a few minutes everything came back. All my other settings seem to have been preserved.

    As an FYI, changing the MAC seems to be a predictable way to get comcast to change the IPV4 Internet IP provided behind their modem. Disconnect/reconnect never does that for me

    Hi RMerlin,

    I'm having issue when after a certain amount of space or files been used or created on a ext3 partition, I'll get OOM whenever further files are created. I'm not sure what actually caused the issue but if I delete files from that particular partition, then I can create more files again without the OOM being triggered.

    The log captured is as below,
    Code:

    There is sufficient swap space most of the time,
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:        239672     105448     134224          0       8760      29780
    -/+ buffers/cache:      66908     172764
    Swap:       761656      70060     691596
    
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, seeing how much swap used you are running by sure out of memory! :oops:

    You need to reduce the no. of services and/or mange the memory usage of the services and/or the kernel parameters for memory handling.

    I don't get it. At the time when OOM occurred, the log states that there is 70384kB of free RAM. Also the swap used is definitely low.

    Memory handling in Linux is not that simple - have a look into here for all the options for memory handling related to vm/swap.

    My current settings to avoid memory shortage (as outline here) in the init-start script are:
    echo 49152 > /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory
    echo 384 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_ratio
    echo 5 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio
    echo 10 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_ratio
    echo 500 > /proc/sys/vm/vfs_cache_pressure
    # Scheduler setup moved to post-mount script
    # echo cfq > /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler
    # echo noop > /sys/block/mtdblock3/queue/scheduler
    # echo noop > /sys/block/sdb/queue/scheduler
    echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
    echo 20 > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
