Asus rt-ac68p firmware
5 reasons why i prefer asuswrt-merlin to asuswrt
I recently reflashed 2x TM-AC1900 routers to RT-AC68U firmware to run AiMesh and it appears to work, but it does not appear to be as reliable as the router was on its own (I’ve had to reset a couple of times in the past month – may have been ISP instability/outage with increased traffic as well). In any case, when I had all set up, the router and node were both running 220.127.116.11.385 20253-gb338b0e, which was the latest from ASUS at the time. I just found that the router utility recommends updating to 18.104.22.168.385 20490-g57b06ea firmware. I expected it to be a simple update, but it became stuck on “Firmware Download” and eventually knocked out the node (had to factory reset and re-add the node). On the Asus website, the RT-AC68U model is no longer mentioned; only the RT-AC68P, which supposedly has a faster processor, is listed. Are the firmwares for the P and U meant to be interchangeable? Do I try to upgrade using the utility or by hand? I’m afraid to touch the firmware again at this stage because I don’t want to risk bringing the entire network down, which I won’t have time to patch (and can’t afford) because my wife and I both work from home. Thank you so much! 1 remark 100 percent upvoted by sharesavehidereport This discussion has been closed. There are no new comments or votes that can be made. Sort by the strongest.
How to install tomato firmware on an asus rt-ac68p router
Take a minute to update this wiki if you’ve been good and learned something that might benefit others (“gee, I wish I had known this before I started”). Isn’t it easier to gather information here than to sift through hundreds of posts?
3) You should be able to connect to the default address of http://192.168.1.1 after the system has rebooted. Rebooting can take a few minutes, so be patient. You will also need to disable and activate your network adapter so that the newly updated firmware may assign it a new IP address.
– We had to change the Regulatory Domain to United States and the Regulatory Mode to Off in Canada. Our bridges and other devices will not bind otherwise. The wireless signal was also so poor with the Regulatory Domain set that it couldn’t get out of the room.
14) Reset your network adapter settings to DHCP after the router has been flashed and rebooted with the stock firmware. After your device receives an address from the router, go to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser to begin re-configuring the router.

Broadcom chipsets, faster processors and more memory than the average, removable antennas, and USB ports for expansion are common features of the Asus series of routers. While Asus’ factory default firmware is more feature-rich than its competitors, it is not without flaws. Open source Linux-based router firmware projects such as DD-WRT, OpenWrt, Tomato Firmware and DebWRT are able to improve system efficiency while also providing more flexibility and customization choices to their users. Asus encourages and supports this use, and promotes many routers as being especially DD-WRT  compatible, including the RT-N16 gigabit router. Information on compatibility can be found further down. The RT-N13U/B, RT-N12, RT-N10+, WL-520GU, and WL-520GC are also DD-WRT compliant, but they do not come with the operating system.
Asus rt-ac66u – back from tomato to asus firmware
Asuswrt-Merlin is an open source third-party firmware for Asus routers that is built on Asuswrt (Asus’s own firmware) and includes a powerful OpenVPN client. This is preferred over the stock firmware because it frequently uses a newer version of the OpenVPN client.
The router’s CPU determines the VPN speed. Just one CPU core can be used by OpenVPN, and AES encryption needs a lot of computing power. Some newer Asus routers, on the other hand, have an AES-NI hardware acceleration chip that takes care of this. Here are some speed estimates we discovered on the web:
Note: In “Rules for routing client traffic through the tunnel,” make sure the Source IP is set to the local IP address range used by the computer/device connected to the router. If the computer/device is using the router’s DHCP server, you may need to refresh the IP or restart it.
