Hello all! I recently purchased an asus rt-ac1750 and am trying to use it to repeat a wifi signal hidden behind a captive portal (Xfinitywifi). I mistakenly flashed John's latest fork thinking that it would do the job. Apparently I was wrong. Now I've learned that I need ddwrt firmware to accomplish this. What is the latest build for my device (ac66r)? Also is it safe to flash over John's Merlin fork or will I need to revert to stock firmware?

You won’t be able to run a repeater from a captive portal, as your connected devices will try to obtain IP addresses from the portal, which is unlikely to succeed.

If you have the newer model with non removable antenna, you’ll need the firmware fir the rt-ac68u.

I’m not sure which build is best. I would check the new release threads. I still use 26318 on mine but it’s set up as a client bridge.

You can flash from John’s fork or Merlin’s but you may have to flash it from the recovery mode.
