Greetings, I'm having an issue with speed But and this is a big but My question is: Whaaaaat??? Am I missing something here or am I stroking out The Hitron is running the latest firmware, I just got the modem last night and all features are disable, ie wirelss etc.
I am not running in bridge mode though, just the default gateway mode! I'm using all CAT6 cables I use the Asus router for all the other wirless devices in the house, i. Plus, I like the features of the rt-r66u!
Any suggestions? Thanks, X. Go to Solution. While you most likely won't notice this unless you've got an internet connection approaching Mbit, be aware that you may loose some performance for that functionality.
View solution in original post. Given your setup I would be running the CGN3 in bridge mode as just a modem. A gateway on top of another gateway will not perform as well given the double NAT translation etc.
Your RT-N66U is a terrific router and can perform very well but it's best to just give it a modem to connect to. I assume that when you say you're on the latest firmware on the CGN3 you are on 4. The previous version had many issues. Ok, just to confirm, you have Version 4. It should read 1.
While that panel is up, select the details button and have a look a the Description of the ethernet controller. Please paste in that description for the controller. I'm wondering if you have a Realtek controller, which seems to have issues interfacing with other equipment. That should take care of any possible address conficts that might be arise out of your current configuration.

What service is responsible for NFS-server? Please, show output on: 'systemctl status nfs-server' or 'service nfs status'. Also check if the nfs module is loaded with lsmod grep nfs or just insert it with modprobe nfs. To see more info, you could add -v to your mount command. Thomas Please see update in OP for results.

Server nfs module is not loaded and modprobe fails. What say 'mount -v'? Maybe it's typo, but no need to write 'nfs' in 'mount' command in uppercase. Active Oldest Votes.

Featured on Meta.Cordcutting and saving money is hugely popular, and people are sick of paying for 2 separate data connections. This method works with almost all routers, and is compatible with 3rd-party tethering apps like PdaNet the help users get around tethering data caps on unlimited plans.
Good luck covering your basement theater setup and your upstairs laptop at the same time. By contrast, if you tether it to a router via USB, the router does all the hard work, and keeps your phone charged at the same time.
But there are several tricks to still use the official tethering feature on those plans. The problem? But here are the highlights:. Open your web browser and go to the local IP address of your router. By default this will usually this will be In this example, ours is On the left side of your control panel are the different settings sections.
If your Asus router model has a USB 3. Depending on your phone model and Android version, the tethering options may be in a different place. We tested this tutorial on a Droid Turbo running Android 6. Once you activate the tether on your phone, it will take a little while for the router to recognize your active internet connection.
If all else fails, restart reboot the router, which will sometimes help settings take effect. You may need to re-enable tethering on your phone after the router reboots. Most mobile companies actually throttle 4G data especially video when it is routed to a non-mobile device. Your 4G provider can see this header and knows which packets are going to a tethered device and which ones are going to a mobile device. Want proof? Tether your phone to your PC and then try to stream a 4k youtube video at full resolution you have to manually change the resolution to 4k using the video settings tool in youtube.
It will constantly rebuffer. On the same tethered connection, simply by connecting to a nearby VPN server we used Private Internet Access for this test we were able to instantly go from p max resolution to 4k max resolution on Youtube. Trust me, the difference is huge. It works with almost any router model. So if you frequently work at a desk, or have a desktop computer near your router, this method is perfect.
Ideally this would be a computer or tablet with full web-browser access. Open your chosen tethering app and start a USB tethering session with your computer. Make sure you have internet access and the tethering is working properly. There are two ways to share your tethered internet connection to the LAN port.
For some people both methods will work.I don't care nor even want access from outside my home computers in other words, do not want access from the internet after Asus's wonderful security failure with that already. I just want the drive to show up in Windows Explorer like any other location.
Highly annoying. How do I get it to stay there permanently? Ideally, I'd like to just name it "W:" or something and have a W: drive on all the computers for sharing photos, etc.
This isn't a true NAS, but close enough. Hopefully this is the right forum. Does the simple solution of mapping it as a network drive not work for you?
It would seem to be ideal here. Hat Monster wrote: Does the simple solution of mapping it as a network drive not work for you?
So that was an incredibly simple procedure! And not one of the umpteen pages I read when searching for help mentioned anything about this feature??? So many hours wasted. I should probably feel stupid for not knowing about network mapping in the first place. Thank you, Monster, I owe you a H or two. I received some long error, but then the drive showed up as if the first attempt woke it up and I was able to then select it and it worked perfectly the second time.
Also creating a shortcut or adding it as a favourite place would work. If it's anything like my USB drive attached through my router the drive will soon down and then require waking up causing a delay and the os to freeze for a bit. Wudan Master wrote: Also creating a shortcut or adding it as a favourite place would work. The "Create Shortcut" top menu option under File is greyed out for me for anything on the network. But if I go the location and bring up the right-click menu, then I can create a shortcut.

Being a hacker I downloaded the source code and began perusing it. Trying to report the bug to the Asus developers took a lot longer. Asus frontline support was reasonable, but trying to communicate with anyone above the tier one level proved virtually impossible.
Being a software engineer, I can appreciate protecting your backline developers from the onslaught of silly questions that support gets everyday. However, when it is a legitimate issue that needs to be escalated, then the engineers should hear about it. This compounded with various versions of the Asus firmware crashing at least once a month, gave me the motivation to find another firmware for my router.
But when discussing this with a security consultant colleague, he suggested that I give the AdvancedTomato firmware a shot. And now six months later I am really glad that he did. So, what is AdvancedTomato? As the project describes on their website.
Tomato comes with a dated web interface with the option to change the color scheme but for some of us that is not enough. The interface simply feels out of date, out of style and in need of an update. Users who demand a modern feature-filled firmware like Tomato deserve to explore those features using modern intuitive GUI like AdvancedTomato. But what is Tomato by Shibby? With AdvancedTomato I can have a modern web interface, with all the great features and more of Tomato and it is all free and open source.
And I can have it all on a modern dual core ARMv7 processor! This is a great example of how open source projects evolve and fork! Disclaimer: Flashing third party firmware on your router will void your warranty. It is possible to brick your router. You have been warned. All of the how-tos that I have read instruct you to download the Asus Firmware Restoration Utility and install the AdvancedTomato firmware using it.
As a Linux user this perturbs me as there is no Asus utility for Linux. So, I decided since all the how-tos used the Asus utility, I would try it as well, to lessen the odds of bricking my router.Do you have something to add?
A question you'd like answered? Think I'm out of my mind? Join the conversation below, reach out by email at david at securityforrealpeople. Out of the box, the Asus RT-AC87 router has some handy, but limited, file and media sharing capabilities. Connect a USB hard drive to one of its USB ports, and the router can share data from that drive with anyone on your network - or optionally, with the outside world.
The firmware implements Samba a Linux-based program for sharing files similar to Windows file sharesbut through the web interface you have only two options: allow everyone complete and anonymous access, or require a username and password for every connection.
Samba can be configured far more granularly, but you cannot get there from the RT-AC87 web interface. I store all my music and movie files on a file share, so music and movies can be played by any devices on my home network. A couple of years ago I used a NAS - a Network Attached Storage device a hard drive that connects directly to the network and that has its own operating systemand I wrote about hacking it to create a genuinely useful music and movie server.
Accessing external USB disk attached to my ASUS RT-AC68U router
Alas the hard drive crashed as all hard drives eventually will. My original thought was to replace it with something similar, but I couldn't find anything reasonably priced on the shelf and was too impatient to wait for an online order to ship.
The choice for me was pretty easy. I couldn't see spending over 5x the money for that. Having bought the hard drive, I now needed a way to make the music and movies on it available on my home network.
That meant deciding what computer to attach the drive to - a USB hard drive does not itself have a network port, so it has to plug into something. You can plug your cellphone into the router and eat up your data plan in a hurry! There is even the option to make files available through the Internet and not just on your local network, though I'd advise extreme caution before doing that.
Make sure the file permissions allow executing running the script; since this is Unix, the simplest way to do this is chmod scriptname. Unfortunately, during a reboot the USB drive is mounted before the Samba service starts. There's a way around this too though. By monitoring that parameter, we can cause the custom script to wait for the system to finish loading before it copies our smb.
Thanks to irq5. The code above may look Greek if you are not familiar with Unix commands. The complete script, with instructions as well as a sample smb.
There is no patch yet available, but the technique I used for fix Samba can also be used to shut off the vulnerable service and protect your router.
