There is a Merlin Fork for Asus DSL-AC68U, its on SNB.

Interesting. Wonder if it adds shell access, the factory doesn't have. Not a router I'd use on VDSL (FTTC) anyway!

No special fork needed.

The standard Merlin firmware for the RT-AC68U installs and runs on the DSL-AC68U.
It basically turns it in to an RT model.

Merlin specifically states he does not support the DSL-AC68U (or any DSL model) and using his firmware on them is against his and Asus t&c's.

Its by a User called GNUton and its a 15 page thread that i've no interest in reading but the thread is titled "AsusWrt Merlin builds for DSL routers" and it uses the onboard modem by the looks of the first page.

How about 200 million devices then. Is that enough?

Never have said there are not vulnerabilities out there, just bouncing back against the 'it is all a disaster' image some are trying to portray.

On the latest one - the Apple Airport Extreme and Linksys WRT54G (ancient now) are the two devices of note for consumer level.

Also looks like patching for this latest one has got underway.

And all certified versions don't suffer from the vulnerability anyway. The article itself includes:-
None of the vulnerabilities affects the most recent version of VxWorks—which was released last week—or any of the certified versions of the OS, including VxWorks 653 or VxWorks Cert Edition.
and
In a post published Monday, Arlen Baker, chief security architect of VxWorks-maker Wind River, wrote:
The latest release of VxWorks is not affected by the Urgent/11 vulnerability, nor are any of Wind River’s safety-critical products that are designed for safety certification, such as VxWorks 653 and VxWorks Cert Edition used in critical infrastructure.
