Just link up with viewqwest tech support and they also mention they are getting disconnection with windows OS. I think this has nothing to do with MacOS or IOS. Last time when I am using my Sony Vaio Tap 11 running on win8.1, also have this issue.

Written an email to Jerry Shen. Don't know whether he will look into this or not but it is harmless to try...

Question on the VPN function

I am currently using the OpenVPN function on the router.
In office, a website like Singaporepools is blocked. I am using my laptop to connect to my home VPN via the AC87 using OpenVPN.
Now, I can access the router admin page and other home resources via openVPN. However, it seems like browsing websites, it is still going through my company proxy as Singaporepools is blocked.
Any setting i need to change on the VPN config page to route website traffic thru my home VPN?
Using the PPTP VPN has no issues at all.
Up for you.

I have the same problem. I can connect to my home Asus AC87U OpenVPN server. I could access the router config. But the network connection say "No internet access". I cannot access the internet at all. You mentioned that you could access the internet but not the blocked site. Seems that you are a step better. Using OpenVPN client. Windows 7 at work.

Anybody can help? Thanks.

Just curious, how do you overclock this router?
It is easy. Simply enter the following code via telnet or SSH exactly as shown:

nvram set clkfreq=1200,800
nvram commit

I think I may have solve this. I keyed in the DNS in the LAN-DHCP Server section. e.g. google DNS 8.8.8.8 Also in the OpenVPN Details-Advance Settings, I tick Yes to 1. Push LAN to Client 2.Direct Client to redirect Internet traffic & 3. Respond to DNS. Not really know what the 3 items means.

Can you confirm? I test a few site and it seems ok.

on 3.0.0.4.378_3885 n various older firmwares,

I'm getting no the "internet connectivity/wifi bars full" regardless of 2.4ghz or 5ghz now, with my note 2 (and of course iOS devices). People visiting commented why the wifi so weird one.

Asus, this is a fail on you. have been recommending everything Asus to people more than 15 yrs ago. if people ask me what's the best router to buy i dare not say Asus now.

going to try merlin's one for hopes, and then will RMA when I have the time.

*Also noted that by moving my router (in AP) to connect between TV-Zhone via wire, I've recently noted many internet cable disconnected notices while using my samsung TV. (So it's now TV-AC87U-Zhone, previously it was just TV-Zhone)

In my opinion, 378.50beta1 is more stable than 3885. There will still be performance issues.. bt the extent is less than 3885 in my opinion..

I see! thanks.

One more question, i just flashed it to merlin, one thing i noticed is that the router seems to be hotter than when i'm on Asus official 2769 FW. Is this normal?

Thanks for the tip. Works on my iPhone but not my laptop.
Very strange.

wah ur question is so abstract. haha.if you are running merlin's firmware, under Tools, you will be able to view the temperatures.

As long as the CPU temp is less than 90, and 5Ghz is less than 80 and 2.4Ghz less than 50, you should be fine generally.

hahaha! paiseh paiseh.

The router's CPU is 85 degrees , 5Ghz is 63 degrees, 2.4GHz is 42degrees.

I just read on some bro's comment saying that they use laptop cooler. Probably i should try one too.
