    So.. I testet the firmware .. I must say..Ilike it much.
    But some things dont work for me. So I sadly go back to dd-wrt kong build.

    - Will be nice to have wifi on off in gui by time.
    - Firewall network service filter need liek in dd-wrt polices for more rules.
    - DNSmasq will be nice in gui for pxe boot.
    - Also cron field.

    All other things are realy nice. Good work.

    Hello everyone
    My R7000 is set to as repeater mode I have set the IP my self its 192.168.1.1
    Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 and then the gateway of the other router which its connected
    Everything is worming but
    Now I am not able to login the router address to manage its settings the page is not opening
    Tried the default address too

    I would verify with my dhcp server that the R7000 isn't really using a dhcp address.
    Are you trying to access the R7000 from a lan/wlan or wan side connection?
    If you connect into the R7000 lan ports and give your pc a static ip just up from the R7000 like 192.168.1.2 can you hit the R7000?

    I have tried both lan and wireless connection.
    I'll try to give the PC static ip then I can connect to router but then no internet connection to PC

    And I have one more issue after I restarted the router I can't connect it with WiFi on my mobile device stuck on obtaining IP address..

    Sounds like you have a configuration or wiring issue.
    Also, since you said the R7000 is in repeater mode please be sure to be specific when you say "router".
    Do you mean the non-described device which is acting as your router or do you mean the R7000 which you said is in repeater mode.

    You have to be very specific when explaining network issues and configurations.
    A diagram never hurts.

    Personally I would probably factory reset the R7000 and go step by step through configuring it again as a repeater.
    See if you missed something.
    First I would configure it with a static IP & also setup the management access settings including ssh & gui.
    Save
    Then put it into repeater mode.

    i love that software i have installed Firmware:380.68_2

    now i see it got a small fixed update with security fix. how i easy update ??
     
  10. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    download the latest ver. Unpack it. Click on the current version link in the gui and then choose to update. Browse to where you saved the file and apply.
    The router will update and reboot.

    Hello..

    Looks like OpenVPN and Access Resctrictions
    dont work together in dd-wrt and it will be not changed
    I think...

    So I like to use xwrt. But there is a trouble with the firewall gui and no access restrictions.

    Now I am thinking about to do this restrictions by scripts and with iptables. Now my question.
    Runs timestart and timestop and mac adresses in xwrt ? Maybe this is a way.
    But it will be nice to have it with GUI.
    Means are they this modules inside the firmware ?
    insmod xt_mac
    insmod ipt_mac
    insmod xt_time
    insmod ipt_time
    Or is the a entware module ?

    I like to block some IP adresses or MAC Adresses.
    And here only some ports. One example:

    One user comes over OpenVPN to the LAN and need this connection to play games, like LOL.
    Now I like to block the ports for this game.
    Means: Ports 27000-27050, Ports 8393-8400,Ports 5222-5223, Port 3478 and 8088. Both ... TCP and UDP
    And this for different times. Not only for one time.

    I looking for a long time to manage this problem.

    thanks....

    IPTV-without VLAN + Internet-taged VLAN on all LAN ports

    Hi guys,
    my internet provider gives me Internet in Vlan 1505 + IPTV without vlan. I would like to get Internet + IPTV on all 4 LAN ports and also in WiFi. There are many solutions on forums in case if Interenet and IPTV have different Vlans. But in my case I have interent vlan only. When I create vlan 1505 for internet, the IPTV stop working. When I erase vlan 1505, the IPTV work fine but a have not internet. I do not understand why router stop routing multicast after vlan create.

    Hi, I've saw on the Merlin's website that he is now using 382.1 code. Anybody knows if Xwrt-Vortex will be upgraded too?. What will be the benefits of upgrading the code base?

    I'm asking this because I understand that the R7000 has similar hadware to the Asus AC68U, but 382.1 code seems to be for the AC86U (86, not 68) so... can this new codebase be the end of the AC68U (and R7000) support?
     
  15. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    pablot, if you keep up over on the snb forums then you will also have seen what Merlin said about why only some models have the newer code.
    Currently the XVortex flavor is the most current that the ac68u is covered under so I don't expect an update until that gets updated by Merlin first.

    Sorry, didnt' saw that, Can you share the url thread so I can read about that?
    Thanks.

    Sure,
    read the very first post in the thread you mentioned.
    https://www.snbforums.com/threads/release-382-asuswrt-merlin-382-1-is-now-available.42127/
    Merlin laid it out plain as day.
    I saw his original comment in the beta thread on the topic.
    "Other models will gradually be ported as Asus issues 382 GPL code for them.

    Asuswrt-Merlin 382.xx was started from a clean GPL release, with the Asuswrt-Merlin changes re-applied on top of it. This was made necessary due to the large amount of changes between 380 and 382. Because of this, both branches will for the time being be developed in parallel, as models will gradually be ported over from the 380 code to the newer 382 code (as Asus progressively migrates them to this new code base).

    Please don't ask for any ETA concerning other models, as I don't have any to give. First, Asus will have to release 382 GPL code for these other models before I can even begin to look into it.

    Just updated to Merlin and have to admit I'm loving it a lot more than the stock firmware. However I appear to be missing the "Traffic Manager" tab. Has this been removed or have I messed up somewhere?

    @XVortex,

    In the changelog you mention:

    Code:
    376.48 Beta 1 (18-Oct-2014)
    - FIXED: Re-added the USB HID kernel module needed for UPS monitoring
               (patch by ryzhov_al)
    Is this patch still in the current firmware? I'm trying to get apcupsd working but it's not seeing the UPS.

    Code:
     cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

    Hi!

    Just flashed my R7000 with recent Xvortex firmware, So far pretty stable, but I noticed that my Wi-fi coverage dropped. My wireless extender can't seem to find the 5ghz from the router. Any ways to improve the Wifi coverage? TX power doesn't seem to work properly, Tried bumping it but still same results. Thank you guys!
     
  24. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    Try a different channel for 5Ghz. Personally I use channel 149. You should do a site survey to see whats best in your area.

    @slidermike

    Thanks for the reply man! A noob question/request :) Can you recommend me a site survey software that I can use. Thanks again!
     
  26. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    The router has a built in spectrum analyzer.
    However from my android cell phone I use "wifi analyzer". Its free and suits my infrequent needs.
    Basically you want your router talking on the channels least used by nearby devices.
    Its like speaking in a room. The more voices, the harder it is to be heard clearly by others.

    Thanks got the wifi analyzer app, hmm What's the best channel bandwidth for 5ghz connection? Still my extender cant find the 5ghz connection. before I have no problem with wifi coverage using netgear's stock firmware.
     
  28. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    Probably be helpful to get some screen shots of your 5ghz configuration.

    For testing purposes I would do a couple of things.
    Make sure you apply your settings after each change.
    #1
    Change the wireless mode from "N/AC" to all.
    #2
    If that doesn't work, reload the router & see if that made a difference.
    #3
    Reset the router to factory defaults.

    Those choices are router specific.
    We don't know what range extender you have or how its configured.
    The issue may lay on that device. Maybe power cycle or reconfigure it.

    Lastly, which country are you in and did you make sure the router country code is correct for your location?

    Thanks for the great help man, I am residing in Philippines. But I bought the router in the US (brought home by my sister) I don't have any wifi coverage problems using the stock FW but I fell inlove with the GUI and flexibility of Merlin firmware tho.
     
  32. slidermike

    slidermike Networkin' Nut Member

    I would make sure the router is using the correct country code. Not all countries allow the same channels and if the wifi extender is using a different scheme then its possible the router and extender aren't talking on common channels.
    These are the US vs. PH channels allowed.
    US
    36 40 44 48 52 56 60 64 100 104 108 112 116 120 124 128 132 136 140 149 153 157 161 165
    PH
    36 40 44 48 52 56 60 64 100 104 108 112 116 120 124 128 132 136 140 149 153 157 161 165

    So they should match as you can see above. It does not appear to be a country code conflict.
