Part of the Furniture
Hi. Sorry for the late reply on this. So I went ahead with your suggestions and can confirm that my trusty old AC68U is now ustilising the full 500 Mbit connection. Thank you for the tips, I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Eventually I'll look into upgrading but unfortunately not at this moment. Thanks again.
I understand that .9 and .10 have issues with NVRAM as you mentioned. Could this be rectified in a potential .11 future firmware for the AC68U?
There is rumor that @RMerlin may release a "lite" version with less VPN configs (which use a lot of NVRAM). Don't know if or when, or if maybe a future release will find other NVRAM stuff to clear out.
If you don't have many custom client names or DHCP reservations you may be ok with .10, but it is very tight.
Is there something specific in the newer versions you need? 386.7_2 has been very stable for me and there are no known vulnerabilities, and the new versions aren't offering anything I need, so no reason to worry about it at this point.
