    Morning
    Just had my Asus RT-AC86U arrive in the post as an upgrade to my 66U.
    I’m interested in what I can do with this router, and keen to gain some knowledge into what can be done with the Merlin CFW over stock.
    Is there a wiki page or similar I could read?
    First post, so going to trawl the forums now.
    TIA

    Congratulations and Welcome to the forums! :)

    I would start with the M&M Config (yes, even for a brand new router) and then use a spare USB drive to really open up the world of scripts with amtm.

    Please see the link below in my signature for both the M&M Config guide and the amtm Step-by-Step guide to quickly get up to speed with your new router.
