My internet has been dropping a few times a week lately. I've been chalking it up to Comcast and shaking my fist angrily in the air while resetting the router and modem. Today I took a bit of extra time to drill into it and found something surprising. It seems it was the AC87U's fault this time.
A kernel module named wred seems to be causing this problem. wred (weighted early random detection) in Linux seems to be a network scheduling module, although I'm not sure if this is a problem inherited from Linux or if Asus has modified this module.
Since there's still no Open-WRT option, I'll just send in feedback for now and hope its fixed in the next update. At least this only seems to happen a few times a week... How lucky can a fella get?
- No internet access
