Why was my ac86u unresponsive?

    I noticed that my internet connectivity was slower or inconsistent and so I went to login to the web portal of my ac86u and it takes at least ten minutes to get to the login screen and was stuck waiting after that. I tried ssh instead and it also took a very long time but it eventually got me to a prompt. I managed to run 'top' and grabbed the following screenshot.

    Does anyone see what could be wrong? Is my CPU pegged because I see SYS at 66.8% and 32.7% for IO. This is my internet router and I have AiProtection and Traffic Analyzer running.

    I tried a reboot command and it was ignored after many minutes. I ended up having to manually power cycle the router.

    Are you using amtm and/or Diversion (with large list) and/or the Skynet scripts? You may want to turn off AiProtection then or use a smaller list. ;)

    I think people have similar problems caused by AiProtection. I suspect it's something to do with attempting to download signature updates, but I could be wrong about that.

    The only thing on that list would be AiProtection. I'm not using any scripts. Not sure if it would help, but I've just disable Parental Controls. I could give up Traffic Analyzer, but I think definitely need Network Protection.
