Asus Routers -Firmware


[link to this post]
 
I noticed in a recent post that quite a few people had Asus routers, I have the AC68U and started out with Merlins firmware but was experiencing quite a few disconnections. On reconnection I would get an IP address starting with 3* or 1**, the connection would then drop again within 12 hours and I would get a 8* IP address.

Since switching to ddwrt I haven't experienced any disconnection issues, has anyone else had similar problems with custom firmware?

I'm running an AC68U with Merlin 376.45 firmware.
Working really well.

I'm starting to think that the problems I was experiencing were not due to the routers firmware! I think I will stay with the ddwrt version.

Did you do a factory reset? If not that can screw things up.

In reply to a post by Cruncher:

Yes, it was running ok for a couple of months but then started disconnecting at least once a day. I find it easier to navigate around the ddwrt interface but that could just be because I've used it on a number of previous routers.
