[操作疑難] R7000 Merlin Firmware

剛買咗Netgear R7000,即裝Merlin Firmware 378.56_2.,
但發現會斷wan,請問是否依個Rom問題?
應該用stock rom?

用 shibby tomato 好穩定

其實點解唔直接買ASUS機?

v378.54_2試過冇呢個問題,仍家用緊tomato shibby v131

AC68U has no stock!  This is the reason.

Asus firmware has more functionality.....but R7000 has newer Broadcom Chip running at 1000mhz while AC68U only runs at 800 mhz.

With stock firmware, R7000 is a bit more stable, less hot, and a bit higher throughput than AC68U!

I have used several Asus routers with Merlin or Russian rom.  Want to buy an AC68U @ Capital but it has no stock.  Knew that R7000 has newer CPU and with Merlin so I got it.
I have tried Netgear router many years ago but its firmware was too bad.  However, I have upgraded R7000 to Merlin immediately.

After hours' trial, its WAN setting can be over-written, when adjusting other setting.
I believe there is bug on port forwarding or UPnP.

I do not know, if I do not change setting again whether it is keeping stable or not?

may be that's why ppl recommend to stay at stock firmware if the provided features are good enough for ordinary home users.

I used Netgear 3700 for 5 yrs, no problem whatsoever. Just bought R7000 less than 2 week, flashed Merlin .56 because I need the extra VPN functionality. No problem at all, temperature runs between 68-71 degree Celsius, with no air conditioning.
