This is weird. I am on stock and infact the latest firmware ending with 632. I was prompt to install from the asus router app.

U haven share if u on wireless or ethernet backhual.

Take note if wireless, it kinda acts as repeater as it uses 1 wifi band to communicate.

I would suggest factory reset everything, both master and node and try again.

Also if on wireless backhaul, u try play ard the position.

Also try update ur lan drivers too
Resolved 😂 restarted main modem and everything is beyond 100mbps again. wasted so many hours trying to figure out.

anw i also upgraded to ac68u firmware doesnt seem to be much different from ac66.

my setup was ont > n14u > fake ac68 mesh router > fake ac66 mesh node all connected with gigabit

actually, since 868 is a dual band router, if use wireless backhual (5ghz), then aren't the client devices are limited to 2.4ghz (50~100mbps) ?
If there is wired backhual, then why not just simply set same ssid and use them as APs in all the rooms?
For mesh to work as intended, need to have triband router with a lack of ability to connect wired backhual. That is the ideal use case.

But nonetheless, nice tutorial to upcycle old free routers.

I did use 868L as main router previously but it had intermittent connectivity issues. Not sure was it dlink firmware or ddwrt firmware. On the other hand, the asus router from 2012 has been solid without any dropped connections. The single core cpu seems to handle everything just fine, I can torrent without affecting connectivity of other devices

using wireless as backhaul the speed seems to be limited to 12mbps for 868L

other than mac-address modification on the cfe template.

U may try to mod the following as well:
0:ccode=AU
1:ccode=AU

1:maxp5ga0=0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E
1:maxp5ga1=0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E
1:maxp5ga2=0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E, 0x6E

Today itchy hand configured this dlink as a wireless bridge with the additional power mod. The download speed(rely on main router) no change around 400mbps.

Found this **** upload speed hit 650mbps. Feels mind-blowed.😂😂

If u not scared of radiation or burn down the chip. feel free to set higher😂😂

Just wondering, asus N14U LAN port is only 100Mbps max, how did you get it to 1Gbps link speed in 868L ?

power off. press and hold wps and reset and power on. hold the 2 buttons for 20 seconds then let go of wps then reset button. it should blink every second = recovery mode

set custom ip address for ethernet on your pc 192.168.1.2 gateway address as 192.168.1.1plug in to port 2,3,4 the asus page will load. if it doesnt you are not following instructions
