I'm currently on 3.0.0.4.384_45149. Before I upgrade to this version, I found that my wifi was slower. It improve after upgrading.

If you rollback, do you notice the wifi lagging ?

if you bought from asus, it comes with stock firmware
merlin is 3rd party alternative asus firmware, use at your own risk

those asking about merlin, pls check the website
https://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/

you really need to know what you are doing when using 3rd party alternative firmware. if unsure, safer to stick to stock firmware

Q: Does Asus know about this project?
A: Yes. We frequently exchange emails, and they have also integrated some of the features and bug fixes from this firmware project into the stock firmware. So far they have been quite supportive of this project, for which I am very grateful.

Q: Will flashing this void my warranty?
A: This is a kinda grey area for which I have no definitive answer unfortunately. I have seen Asus publicly commit to supporting DD-WRT for some of their models, without any mention about it voiding your warranty. Therefore my personal opinion would be that "No, it won't void your warranty", but as the saying goes, IANAL. Your retailer might certainly have a different view on this than Asus would, too.


NOTE: CSR Sanita, after confirming w/ her supervisor, said on 2/24/2016 "We will repair the product free of cost under warranty if it does not have any physical damage. No, it won't void your warranty."

75-85% is normal.. most users on snbforums reports the same RAM usage as well.. if you were to plug a external HDD to the router you would most probably see RAM usage as high as 95% as well.

did you turn off alot of features?? the only time I can get it running at 50%+ operationally is perhaps just briefly after factory resetting it and clearing all the internal nvram/memory/scripts..

but as I start tunning the router back to my settings and setting up all the stuff like OpenVPN server + clients with policy-based routing, the trend micro security, port forwarding, print server, adblock/malware block scripts + other optimising scripts and custom commands, it would be back to 75-80% again..

I think the high ram usage % on the landing page of the admin page looks alarming, but once you go into the overall system page and look at the numbers, it actually looks ok with quite abit of overhead.. somemore these stats here is based on 3 days uptime with OpenVPN client running non-stop with zero down timing and quite heavy file downloads + approx half of the overall devices connected to an SSID with no VPN routed and the rest connecting to another SSID behind the VPN.. I wanna try see this time whether the VPN server will go down first or the router's WiFi connection will drop first..
