Try download the firmware again and flash.

Best regard,
JK
I tried to download and flash again but still can't work. However when i rollback to the previous firmware version, my macbook can detect the backup disk. Strange. May I check with you which format are u using for the time machine backup? NTFS or native mac format?

Dear evildoctor,

Let me list down the following question you have asked.

1. How to improve performance and security
Enable all AiProtect, Firewall and DoS protection.
You may input more than 8 digitals password for wireless to prevent others easily connect into your wireless connection.
Tweak your wireless 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz

2. How to enable VPN server
You need to enable DDNS client first before setting your VPN. Please make sure your internet service provider do not block VPN.

3. How to enable port forward for Bittorrent for my computer.
Enter 192.168.1.1 - Password& user name: admin/admin
WAN>WAN - Virtual Server / Port Forwarding> Enable port forwarding
Select Famous Game List: Bittorrent
Under Local IP tab select your computer ip address and add local port 6881 then click on +
Apply. Done
Remember set your utorrent port to 6881

Best regard,
JK

Hi ASUS@SG / Maylyn or any gurus,


Currently the AC87U is in my study room and the wireless signal in my daughter's room is pretty weak. She's unable to stream videos to her tablet / mobile phone in her room.

Will it help if I were to install the EA-AC87 in her room when it's available so as to boost the wireless signal in her room?

Will the EA-AC87 be able to act as a wireless access point or do I still need to connect another router (I have a spare N66U) to one of it's LAN ports so that she can get strong wireless signal in her room?

Would appreciate any guidance as I've tried many options like powerline adapter, range extender, etc and the signal is still very weak. Laying LAN cable is not an option as it's too far away.

Some basic info: 200Mbps fibre, HDB 4-room.

Thanks.

Hi ASUS@SG,

Do you have any issues when you turned on your Adaptive QoS and AiProtection?

I only turned on my Adaptive QoS but not the AiProtection cos this guy in SNB got locked up when he turned on both even on the latest 2678 firmware.

Turn off adaptive QoS if you are using fibre plan >100mbps. I had router lockup once when turn on AIProtection on 2678 but still monitoring.

Could be some bugs

Dear oric1,

May i know your daughter's device connect to RT-AC87U by 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz?

I would advise you don't waste your money. Why don't use RT-N66U act as a repeater?

Wireless <---->Wireless
RT-AC87U ---------RT-N66U ------- Daughter's devices

Best regard,
JK

Dear oric1,

As what SimonLam said, turn off QoS and i advise you to turn on AIProtection.

I always switch on AIProtection and so far didn't encounter any issue.

If you guys have issue with AIProtection, please let feedback to me and provide me details.

Best regard,
JK

Hi. last night finally done with the setup and wiring of my 2 x AC87.

The media bridge is not so strong for me. getting link speed of ard 780mbps only. But still much faster then my old setup using powerline.

As my room wireless signal is still not strong. I got one prolink WNR1004 small travel router to act as wireless AP connecting to one of the AC87 media bridge lan port.

But how come some device is unable to connect to it? as in its connected but alway having problem getting IP address for the unit and after that it DC.

I tried on my old setup with an old belkin router set as AP connected from my aztech powerline lan and previously all no issue.

I tried on the old belkin router connected tot he media bridge unit lan. having the same problem unable to obtain ip address and then dc.

bug in ac87 or wat setting i need to do?

thank you.
