For those ASUS RT-AC88U users whom want to start using RMerlin's firmware. (378.56_2)

Do note that this RMerlin's firmware is based on ASUSWRT GPL 9177 so it's not current with ASUS RT-AC88U first release firmware (3.0.0.4.380.664)

RMerlin based on (3.0.0.4.380.664) will be coming out in due time.

Asuswrt-Merlin is now available for all supported models, including the RT-N66U build.

Summary of changes since 378.55:

Merged with Asus GPL 378_9177, which includes numerous fixes and tweaks, and improvements to the networkmap. This includes the newer Quantenna driver for the RT-AC87U, which resolves connectivity issues on the 5 GHz band, however it still causes some battery drain on that band. The only workaround is to revert to 378.55 if this is a problem for you.
Support was added for the (unreleased yet) RT-AC88U. Thanks to Asus for providing a development sample.
Enhancements to syslog handling. The default log level can now be configured (it used to be hardcoded to Emergency). This is especially useful to users who log to a remote syslog server.
Editable entries for the DHCP static lease, virtual servers and prot triggers pages.
Various component updates: miniupnpd, openvpn, dropbear and minidlna were updated to their latest versions.
Various issues related to networkmap were resolved, especially handling of long hostnames.
You can now configure up to five separate OpenVPN clients, to match Asus's stock FW.
Numerous other fixes, please see the complete changelog for details

Additional changes in 378.56_2:

378.56_2 (2-Nov-2015) - CHANGED: Reverted the memory buffering optimization for ARM devices, as people keep panicking over the lower amount of free RAM. You can manually re-enable the optimization by setting "drop_caches=0" in nvram. - CHANGED: Allow using a port < 1024 for http(s) webui interface. - FIXED: EMF wasn't working on AC56/AC68/AC87. - FIXED: Couldn't connect to ISPs using VLANs (RT-AC87U) - FIXED: Editing Port Forward entry with ellipsis in the description or the port range would still edit the shortened version instead of the full content. - FIXED: Debug log from mDNSNetMonitor could gradually fill up RAM - disabled it. - FIXED: Router crash if pasting SSH key > 2047 characters. - FIXED: Editing an entry on the networkmap would clear the hostname if entry existed in the DHCP static list. - FIXED: OpenVPN server in secret key mode would fail to start. - FIXED: Couldn't add entries to the MAC Filter list of Guest Networks (reverted our previous implementation which conflicted with Asus's new one). - FIXED: NTP failing to refresh for some cases. Implemented temporary workaround. - FIXED: Some services not properly starting at boot time (like Parental Control or Tor)
Downloads are here.
Changelog is here.

Hi all

I just bought the ASUS RT88 but i am unable to connect to my fibre broadband. Anyone with 88U facing this same problem.

THanks!
Same problem. On SingTel fiber, unable to connect. Xianz..

Edit: upgraded firmware to 3.0.0.4.380.858 still doesn't work. Seems like router issue. Unable to auto detect SingTel modem.

Try set the VLAN manually.

Under Advanced Settings -> LAN -> IPTV, select Manual Setting for ISP Profile. Then enter 10 for Internet VID and 0 for PRIO.

See if you can get internet access.

Which SingTel Fiber plan are you on and what is your previous router? If it's ASUS router, just setup exactly the same in the ASUSWRT GUI configuration. If you are new to ASUS routers do a quick search.

A quick search in IBNC forums will have various postings and guides on how to set up ASUS routers with various SingTel Fiber plans.

Some examples ~

Please provide more details.

~ Edit ~

Case closed .... lol

Was using N66U previously, no issues with auto-detect. Likely something wrong with auto-detect and configuration in AC88U.

Let ASUS SG check and look into the matter with the ASUS TW RD, he will provide any updates if any.

If any ASUS RT-AC88U users have issues trying to establish Internet connection on their SingTel Fiber, we are here to assist.
