I want to use NFS mounts with RT-AC66U B1 but the UI has absolutely no options for NFS. Is it possible to enable NFS on this router? Why is it missing on this model?
My version is 3.0.0.4.385_20633-g593a8ef
Even if not, can I ssh in and install NFS server myself? I can't seem to find any docs on installing anything on merlin.

As mentioned above you're posting the the Merlin forum but using stock Asus firmware. Asus' firmware doesn't include an NFS server AFAIK, however Merlin's does (it's under USB Application).

Wait what? So Asus does not have the full blown Merlin? Just to be clear, if I bought another Asus router I would end up in the same situation simply because Asus has modified Merlin?
The RT-AC66U B1 router comes with FTP, Samba, and Windows Media Server for USB Application right out of the box.
I read all over the web of people having an extra tab on the USB application for NFS, mine does not and 0 information on why not.

"Merlin" (or more accurately "Asuswrt-Merlin") is an unofficial firmware made by one individual (Eric Sauvageau) that replaces the official stock Asus firmware.
