I have a friend who subscribe to viewquest fibre bb and managed to run the ONT given as router mode. meaning use all 4 ports on the ONT to act as an router. anyone heard of it? from what I know, I am on m1 fibre, that only one port of the huawei ONT is use for its ISP subscription. I am only able to use the 2nd port if I subscribe to another telco.

but my friend using viewquest manage to use all 4 ports on his ONT as though its a router.
THe is because the Zhone that VQ provides functions as a ONT cum router, whereas normal ISPs only give out ONTs without the router feature, thus only 1 port works.

Your IP camera must be part of the LAN, but there must be a WAN connection to this LAN i.e. what is the WAN IP of the router where you IP cameras are connected to? Is the WAN of this LAN VQ? Your tablet/smartphone must be connected (via wifi) to a router. Is it the same router? If so, then your tablet/smartphone is in the same LAN as your IP camera. This is the NAT loopback problem. If your tablet/smartphone is using 3G/4G, then it is external to the LAN, and if you can view the camera, you are using the WAN access, and it means that your portforwarding rules are working fine.
Managed to solve the problem. Google and found someone also with the same problem. I will need to disable the firewall and enable back again. Then I can see my IP cameras using VQ WAN IP. However, when I reboot my AC87U, it is back to the previous situation. I will need to disable and enable the firewall again.

Hey experts, how do I turn off 5GHz band of RT-AC87U?

Went through the settings inside the Internet Setup thingy (192.168.1.1), but can't find leh.

Sorry for the noob question.

First time doing this on a router .... if I plug in one HDD into the router for family sharing, which section of the setting should I be touching on to enable sharing read/write from the HDD?

Just tested the new firmware. Below are my comments thus far:
1) Dl speed has dropped to 50-60Mbps while upload speed is double or triple the dl speed.
2) connectivity is good so far but than its only been a day.

you need to forget your old network (SSID) and then reconnect to the same SSID again. reboot your devices after that.

yup. I have done that already. Did a hard reset by press and holding wps, turn off router and than back on while holding wps for another 30 secs.

I am currently using it in AP mode. Is there any difference? I tried in router mode too but it doesn't make any difference.

What speed were you getting before the upgrade?

Maybe you want to give Asuswrt-Merlin - custom firmware for Asus routers - SmallNetBuilder Forums a try.

About the same actually........

Anyway, I have a few devices and below are the results. Dun really understand why it is that way though.

1) iPad (latest) - 60 dl 150 upl
2) iPad (previous version) - same as latest iPad.
3) asus ux32v laptop - 80 dl 150 upl
4) carbon x1- 300 dl 350 upl
5) iPhone 6 - 60 dl 130 upl

I believe new iPhone 6 and iPad are all running AC while asus ux32v is running N network card and old iPad is also using N network.
Carbon X1 is running AC network card.

However, only my carbon X1 is achieving the correct speeds. Any ideas?

Perhaps you want to do screenshot of your router 5GHz settings and post it here so that others can help check for you. You problem is only the 5GHz, right?
