Asus rt-n66u upnp
All you need to know about configuration of dlna on asus
The documents and technical support provided by Asus are abysmal. There’s a lot of contradictory details on what “Optimized for Xbox” really means. It “lets the router complain it does not help LDPC error correction,” according to one forum article. LDPC is a data transmission protocol that is widely used over noisy channels and is included in 802.11n and later. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with multicasting.
Thank you so much for doing this. I’m running firmware 184.108.40.206.380 7266-g6439257 on an RT-N66U configured as a media bridge. It’s working well right now, and it appears that I should stick with this firmware version.

I have an RT-N66U (firmware 18.104.22.168.380-7743-g2cf84e2) that I haven’t upgraded to the most recent edition. This seems to be the best option at the moment, since all is running well. Isn’t it true that not upgrading in general isn’t the right thing to do in the long run? In my experience, out-of-date apps will inevitably break down!
Forward ports on an asus rt-ac66r router
To begin with, I’m just a beginner when it comes to networking. I’m trying to open ports 5000 and 5001 for my Synology NAS, but I need to forward a couple of ports to access it from the outside, and I can’t get either of them open. Getting ports to open has always been a problem with this router, and although I might have done something wrong, it used to work.
22.214.171.124.382 50470-g033b865, firmware version 126.96.36.199.382 50470-g033b865, firmware version 188.8.131.52.382 50470- I’ve disabled the DMZ and switched off the firewall, enabled upnp, and enabled NAT passthrough. People had set all of these to get it running, according to the reading I’ve done, but there’s still no hope for me. Last resort seems to be a factory reset, which has been reported to function for a few months before needing to be reset again. I tried a factory reset, but it had no impact.
However, I have a somewhat different setup. I used to have an ethernet cable connecting my router to my modem, but now I have two TP-LINK TL-PA7020PKIT V2 2-Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline Kits connecting the modem to the router.
Unless you have another NAT system in front of it, your Asus should not be having a 192.168.x.x address on the WAN side. Since I don’t think the powerline kit will allocate IP addresses, I’m wondering if your modem is really a modem-router combination.
Dlna server installation
UPNP IGD is a mechanism that allows incoming connections to enter clients behind a NAT. This is a common feature of most Internet routers and is very useful for all sorts of P2P protocols.
However, it didn’t work properly on my RT-AC87U. It would operate after a fresh router reboot or when a link was established, but no application could add port forwarding entries after a few minutes.
UPNP advertises itself by using multicasting. So I only used the UPNP Tools to simulate a client. I could see Windows sending an IGMPv3 Membership Report, but never receiving an IGMP Membership Query from the router.
After some analysis, it appears that this is due to the router’s reluctance to allow IGMP to move through the WiFi interface. I’m not sure why this is, but it may be because sending multicast packets over WiFi is typically a nightmare, as I explained in a previous post.
Openvpn server behind nat or firewall !! [asus rt-ac68u
I’ve had three of these units over the years. After a year and a half, they’ve all split. On the upper floor of my building, I use them as wifi extenders. They work fine for a while before losing the ability to detect the signal from the router downstairs. Resetting and attempting to reconfigure the system does not function. I’m not sure what’s frying their brains because they’re not in hot, cold, wet, or dusty places. I’m guessing it’s just some low-cost parts.
This was acquired as part of a Warehouse contract. It was broken when it arrived. Clearly, the previous owner had unplugged the device in the middle of a firmware update. Nothing happened when I pressed the factory reset button. I had no choice but to use the Asus Rescue program in conjunction with the new firmware patch. The router was brought back to life as a result of this, but the default login credentials were not reset. The factory reset button was then pressed, allowing access and configuration. This router is awesome once it’s up and running. I now have three of them, one serving as a gateway router and the other two serving solely as wireless access points.
This was a purchase I made a few years ago, and it has worked admirably. The user interface is well-designed, with all of the features you’d expect. I recently purchased a newer model, which I’m now using as a repeater to expand the signal, so it’s still working well.
