    I also like the fact that this FW is not 3rd party per se because there is collusion with ASUS who actually implements some of the features. Besides many of the bugs in the Official FW tend to be ironed out and the Merlin version tends to be stable as...from what I have experienced over the last year or so.... a big thumbs up.:)

    Hi,

    I installed the ASUSWRT-Merlin firmware on a RT-N66U that I use as a wireless repeater. I had wanted to use this as a very cheap NAS by attaching a USB disk but the stock Asus firmware didnt correctly support configuration of the access rights of userids (well I could not get it to work). The USB/SMB support in the Merlin firmware so far has been rock solid (100% available) and I can configure folder access with multiple userids - and it works. So I have gladly sent off my donation over Paypal. Great job Eric.

    In Japan, paypal's donation function can not be used so I transferred it directly. Did you receive a donation?

    Can you give me the date and the time you sent it? I don't remember one from Japan, but I might have missed it in my mails.

    I did - thank you :)

    I reply to donations that I receive, however direct send like you did don't supply me with the sender's email address, that's why I was not able to acknowledge it.

    - A donation from Norway for the excellent work!
    - My RT-AC88U got (more than usual) warm, unstable and boggy with stock ASUS fw 3.0.0.4.382.15850, as well as the infamous everlasting "Internet Status - Check connection" and useless renaming of router clients, not rendering the renaming in other tabs in the user interface.
    - Asuswrt-Merlin 380.68_2 (and currently 380.68_4) to the rescue! Now more stable than it ever was with "official" FW. Less memory and CPU use, less loggingflood, and more "operational" use of my 80/80 fibreline than ever before. A bit more bufferingtime with Netflix on the cabled smart-TV's, but that's a small price to pay for a stable AP in my house, with usually approximately 30 devices connected. Lots of them in use by my bandwith-hungry teenage brats :)
    - Again; THANK YOU Eric!

    As others have said previously, Merlin firmware is the only reason I purchase Asus routers! I have now moved to the AC86U. Another donation on the way....... Keep up the good work and thank you!
