Can anyone advise how to disable QOS on 1.0.1.8j firmware?

Much appreciated, thanks!

Hi Negativezero,

Will there be a significant difference if i upgrade to padavan firmware against current? I read some review about some unable to connect to wifi or more frequent drop of connection.

Thankz.
Never had that problem, I prefer this to the stock firmware because it is faster.
Hi Negativzero,
If I use Padavan without asking for direct ONT, can set the vlan thingy? I'm now using official firmware and vlan tagging. Can do the same using Padavan? If yes, please share how to do it. TIA.
Can set VLAN under the WAN settings.

1. hit-and-miss. Your end interpretation and others might be different. if what you are talking is line-of-sight i will say, shouldn't be too much of an issue. Wireless is always hit-and-miss

2. already told you your adapter cmi.

why are you asking the same thing over and over again?

You may want to go and buy Asus USB-N53 which is what I am using for my desktop now. My desktop is in my bedroom and router is in the living room. So far connection is fine.

Negativezero,

I tried to upgrade the firmware to padavan latest but seems like the processing takes ages and I give up.
I log in to my Asus homepage, select browse to upgrade to the padavan firmware. Is this the correct method or I need to download another software?

According to the padavan website, the advice was that if the current FW is working fine and we do not need the latest upgrade, we should keep to the existing one.

i have no issues with mine.

that is the prob. Can you guarantee USB N53 can do wonders? can get what your fibre subscription plan is? If LaughAtYourAss bought it and it did not get what you said, will you refund him?

yes.

then nothing to continue any further. You can stick to what you have if there is no issue with your current 1.

The padavan firmware has a different interface from the stock firmware. So if you don't see it, the router didn't upgrade.

Anyway yeah, you should follow their advisory. If no problem, don't bother, unless you're a tinkerer and want better speed and stability
