Thread: Asus RT-AC56U & RT-AC68U 802.11ac Wireless Router

    ASUS RT-AC68U

    ASUS представила двухдиапазонный роутер с общей скоростью до 1900 Мбит/с
    Новости



    На международной выставке Computex 2013 в столице Тайваня ASUS представила новый двухдиапазонный роутер RT-AC68U, который обладает стандартом 802.11ac и поддерживает скорость до 1900 Мбит/с, сообщает Engadget. Естественно, для достижения такой скорости необходима поддержка стандарта 802.11ac подключаемыми к роутеру устройствами.
    Благодаря системе AiRadar удалось увеличить зону покрытия в 1,5 раза. Роутер обладает разъемом USB, который можно использовать для подключения 3G модема. Более того, RT-AC68U поддерживает функцию синхронизации с аналогичным роутером. Таким образом, можно подключить USB-носитель к роутеру и передать информацию с накопителя на подключенный роутер.

    ASUS не объявила дату выхода устройства и ориентировочную цену, но, сравнивая новую модель с ее предшественницей AC66U, которая стоила 190$, вряд ли RT-AC68U будет стоить дешевле.

    Thumbs up Разгон CPU ARM на Asus RT-AC56U

    HOW TO OVERCLOCK RT-AC56U

    1. Navigate to http://192.168.1.1/Tools_RunCmd.asp

    2. OverClock: in the cmd window, copy paste/enter:
    Code:
    nvram set clkfreq=1200,800
    nvram commit && reboot
    - this will set CPU clock to 1200MHz and memory to 800 (for comparison - the stock is 800/533)

    Stock:
    Code:
    nvram set clkfreq=800,533
    nvram commit && reboot
    Warning: your router may hang at this point. Let it stay for couple minutes, if it does not come back, power cycle.
    If you cannot get the router back after power cycling, follow to restore procedure outlined above.

    3. After successful reboot, you can check the clocks in the UI: http://192.168.1.1/Tools_Sysinfo.asp
    Code:
    # CPU

    5. Temperature check: go back to http://192.168.1.1/Tools_RunCmd.asp
    Code:
    # cat /proc/dmu/temperature
    I am seeing 58 degrees (that's with the cooling) BCM4708A is officially rated for 1000 MHz, so ASUS seems to deliberately
    underclocking it for AC56U at 800MHz; my guess is that they are keeping full clocks for AC68
    Code:
    nvram set clkfreq=1000,667
    nvram commit && reboot
    So far I cannot find clear guidance on what are the safe temperatures for the CPU
    You just re-affirmed my suspicion - your router is simply overheating (at 80 degrees).
    AC56U does not have internal fan, so the only hope convection cooling (right, with those tiny holes) or add-on cooling.

    My suggestion: if you can, remove the rear cover (no one sees it in the closet anyway, right?) and you can use standard 80mm
    case fan just standing few inch away from the router connected to 5-7 volt DC power source (does not have to be USB).
    Lower than 12V power will reduce the RPM and noise while still providing sufficient cooling.

    Before any overclocking, try to cool off your router to sub-60 and measure performance with VPN on - see if there is any improvement...

    6. Memory: used in Asus RT-AC56U - 256 MB (ESMT M15F2G16128A) which is according to M15F2G16128A.pdf
    is DDR3 capable of 667/800Mhz! I am going to try 667MHz now. so I applied 1200,667 and... it still works!

    The memory in the router is rated for 667 at CL9 or 800 at CL11. Honestly I do not know which one would be more beneficial,
    BUT definitely 667 is a lot better than stock 533... and for any real performance difference, we should compare stock memory
    speed with maximum - that should yield something.

    I would not go anywhere beyond 800 - this is not a PC, and I cannot increase any voltages... Let me try to set 800MHz... and it booted!!!!

    So I measure the internet speed using 200Mb file download at testmy.net and this is highest ever on VPN: 22.5 Mbps
    Turning VPN off, the same site: 24.5 Mbps This is, ladies and gentlemen, reason I overclock

    Quote Originally Posted by RMerlin

    Release 374.34 has been uploaded to Mediafire. I initially intended to merge more up-to-date code from
    Asus, but considering the amount of major changes Asus has introduced, and also the fact they are
    releasing multiple updates in a short period of time, I decided to release this build for now, so to provide
    a stable platform for people to use, and give me more time to work on integrating the newer code.

    Highlights:

    374.34 marks the introduction of a new router to the family, with the RT-AC68U.

    Note that this release isn't based on the latest Asus code. There are still some unresolved issues that
    Asus has been addressing in newer firmware releases. It should however still be usable by a lot of users.
    I didn't want to delay this release by a few more weeks just for the AC68U, so here it is.

    CPU temperature is now reported both on Sysinfo page, as well as the Performance Tuning page
    (including the graphical chart) for routers that support it (only AC56 and AC68). While on the topic
    of the Performance Tuning page...

    Asus's (currently still under development) Turbo Mode for the RT-AC68U has been integrated and enabled.
    (this is not the same thing as TurboQAM). The Performance Tuning page has an option which will let you modify
    the LED switch at the back to start acting like a Turbo button - just like the good old days of pre-Pentium PCs

    Enabling this option then pressing the LED button will overclock the router to 1 GHz. As anything that involves
    overclocking: it CAN reduce your router stability. The good thing with Asus's implementation is that if it's so
    unstable that you are no longer able to boot the router, you can easily revert back to normal clock just by
    setting the LED button to Off at the back.

    (Known issue: the CPU clock isn't accurately reported on the Sysinfo page when Turbo mode is enabled.
    To confirm that it's working, compare the Bogomips value from /proc/cpuinfo.)

    IPSec kernel support was added (patches provided by saintdev).
    This should let you setup an IPSec tunnel through the use of Strongswan (available through Entware).

    UPnP-related changes: you can now adjust the lowest port number allowed to be forwarded by miniupnpd
    (useful for WHS users). Also, UPnP rules will be processed after manually configured port forwards.

    Component updates: Dropbear updated to 2013.60, dnsmasq updated to 2.67
    (Asus had been using 2.67-test in recent releases).

    minidlna should no longer crash when processing very large libraries
    (patches provided by Paulo C.)

    A bunch of other minor fixes, all documented on the Changelog.

    What next?

    Merging with the next Asus GPL release mostly. Asus has been bringing a lot of
    major changes (such as OpenVPN support) to the official firmware with this build.
    This will require some planning to decide how best to integrate their changes.

    RT-AC68U
    Так, по поводу скорости этой железки, проверил сначала на родной стоковой, провод процентов на 10 быстрее AC66, вай-фай процентов на 20 медленнее, стало печально, однако новый 3.0.0.4.374.339 кардинально поправил ситуацию, Beeline L2TP, 100/100 удалось загрузить роутер только на 56% (и это 22 мегабайта в секунду)), два роутера по wi-fi - больше гигабита реальной скорости, точнее не удалось за отсутствием возможности агрегировать порты )

    Убрали сверхяркие диоды, добавили возможность их отключения, нагрев в разы меньше (по сравнению с N66/AC66), после недельного прогона роутер чуть теплый.

    Из недостатков - нет возможности настенного крепления и возможности положить роутер, только стоймя, но IMHO небольшая плата за хороший тепловой режим.

    Из глупостей - светящийся белым логотип Асус в заднице )

    Прошивка - L2TP держит как зверь, SIP совершенно стабилен, хотя логи переодически засирает
    Code:
    Nov 15 05:21:50 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Nov 15 05:21:50 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Nov 15 05:21:51 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Nov 15 05:21:51 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Nov 15 05:21:51 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Nov 15 05:21:52 kernel: pch ==NULL.
    Пора бы Асус разогнать китайских "програмистов" )

    Собственным медиасервером прекрасно транслирует видео, не давится даже муксами BD.

    Асус выпустила утилиту для официального разгона своего роутера )))
    Переписывается загрузчик после чего имеем -
    Code:
    admin@RT-AC68U:/tmp/home/root# nvram show | grep clkfre
    size: 41194 bytes (24342 left)
    clkfreq=800,666
    admin@RT-AC68U:/tmp/home/root#
    Брать тут, сброс совершенно обязателен как и прошивка .339
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wir...AC68U_1007.zip

    P.S. Не к добру такая частота! Асус что-то замышляет ))

    При температуре в помещении 24, корпус не превышает 38, самое горячее ближе к левому и правому, краям передней крышки
