Hi there.

I have just tried to send the following message using the contact form on the main DD-WRT website, which for some reason was flagged as spam.

Thought I'd mention. I am based in the Philippines atm so my IP might be part of an unappreciated pool. My question was about this repeater (not router) from ASUS.

Hi DD-WRT,

I have recently added the firmware to my main wireless router, and I love it. It's really really nice to have an open, well-configured, and robust Linux-based distribution to work from.

Now, I was trying to flash this repeater:
https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/RP-AC68U/

With DD-WRT firmware for the companion router, the R-Tee-AC68U. Of course to no avail.

I suppose that both must be very similar. Is it possible to somehow create a build for that and how? Will be happy to help with any testing required.

RP-AC68U is a RealTek device and will not be supported:

Ok thanks for the heads-up. This discussion explains some of the reasons RealTek chipsets are not supported currently:

That being said, I wonder how ASUS manages to support the RP-AC68U in an official capacity (even though Merlin doesn't) but oh, well. Fwiw it's not a very stable device, and I am fine with my current router.
