    Dear all,
    I have bought the router 86U new and wanted to run it with the same, working configuration of my 68U. But unfortunately there seems to be a problem, which is very likely due to the current firmware in connection with the Open VPN Client.

    The following facts.
    Router updated to the latest firmware, the router was reset to factory settings and then I started with the configuration.
    WLAN and LAN configured, no problems

    Then I set up and activated my OpenVPN client as usual.
    Internet is available and usable.

    Then I rebooted the router:
    WiFi connection to the router established, intranet works. There is no WAN connection detected in the GUI, although there is a cable in it.
    If you unplug the cable and put it back in, the WAN IP address will be displayed correctly and you will be told that you are connected to the network.
    In fact, the internet does not work, only the intranet IPs are reachable.

    The OpenVPN client indicates that it is connected correctly - but no data is flowing.
    Reboot leads to the same result.

    The only thing that works:
    Pull out the WAN cable, reboot the Asus router, plug in the cable, terminate the OpenVPN client, reboot the router without the WAN cable, plug in the WAN cable, activate the Openvpn client -> Internet will be available until the next reboot.

    When rebooting with WAN cable, I can not go to the OpenVPN client side to disable the client. Whenever I try to call the rider, the router hangs and you can not click anything else.


    Interestlingly if you are using Merlin 384.5 - with the same configuration - it working without problems.
    I downgraded to official firmwares manually (Version 3.0.0.4.384.20942 ) and Version 3.0.0.4.384.20648 , without succsess.
    According to the system logs, the VPN connection is successfully established, but as I said, no data is transferred.

    Does anybody know that problem? The VPN provider is cyberghost.

    Thanks a lot.

    Peter
