    According to Can Asus RT-AC66U+ (B1) run Asuswrt-merlin? and according to content of directory on download servers model AC66U_B1 *is* supported by using firmware for AC68U.
    But on About page is stated that "hardware revision B1 is NOT supported", and this is very confusing.
    @Merlin, could you please update About page and change it to something like this: "hardware revision B1 is supported by AC68U firmware".
    Thanks!

    Hardware version B1 is not the same as Asus RT-AC66U_B1 which is the router model. We knew this would be confusing. The easy identifier for the AC66U_B1 is the front USB. The older AC66U has two back USB connections.

    So much to do, and I'm alone doing it all... I updated the documentation where I remembered it was referred (I think I did the Wiki and the README files), there might still indeed be some places where I haven't had the time yet to update it.

    About page is still not updated. If https://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca is on github, I can try to help and create pull req with updates.
    I've created PR against README-merlin.txt.

    Thanks, I will probably take a look at all that this weekend (currently got other things keeping me busy for the rest of the week).
