    I just bought a used asus RT-n66u router,

    it has fw: 3.0.0.4.382_50702 on it, which i see is the latest.

    Does asus merlin support this firmware? or do i need to downgrade? if so, where can ya get the old FWs?

    Or if ddwrt supports this?

    Thanks

    Joe

    Does this have data use by device? thats what im really looking for,

    web history would be nice, but i use a dns for that.

    so just update this just like any other firwmare update through the GUI then?


    Thanks!

    ok, how the heck do ya access the CFE Mini-Web Server to update the firmware?

    i read something like turn power off, hold a button power on, ? But to acually access the CFE Mini-Web Server , is there a URL or ?

    im used to Linksys routers,

    this is the first asus

    No, John's fork doesn’t support the ASUS app. Try it for some time. If you miss the ASUS features you can always revert to the ASUS original firmware.

    I hear it can take a long time on the N66U. Don’t lose hope. It’ll complete. Any other issues afterward, post in the main thread for John’s fork.

    You can change (or assign) host names at LAN > DHCP Server > Manually Assigned IP...
