[WayBack] Solved: Stuttering Audio Streaming To Apple TV Via AirPlay – The Spotify Community:

Try to disable Wifi multimedia (WMM) from your router’s WLAN settings

For my Tomato USB it was easy as described by [WayBack] Installing AirPlay on Tomato – 2017 Edition [StartupCTO]:

disabling WMM in Tomato. (Advanced Settings → Wireless).

Some more notes on ASUS RT-N66U, firmwares, temperatures and versions

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/08/20

In the the irregular series of ASUS RT-N66U and TomatoUSB posts:

Execute this script from the Tomato USB interface, or a ssh/telnet shell:

cat /dev/mtd0ro | grep bl_version
nvram get os_version
nvram get clkfreq
wl -i eth1 phy_tempsense | awk '{print $1/2+20;}'
wl -i eth2 phy_tempsense | awk '{print $1/2+20;}'
  • Line 1 gets the CFE bootloader version
    (1.0.2 and lower boot with 32K of NVRAM, 1.0.3 and up with 64K of RAM; some Firmwares work around the 32k limitation)
  • Line 2 gets the Firmware model and version
  • Line 3 gets the CPU speed
  • Line 4 and 5 get the temperature for eth1 (2.4 Ghz) and eth2 (5 Ghz) in Celsius
    It is based on the RMerlinDev (firmware developer) information on temperatures: These are for each radio. Take the returned value, divide by 2, then add 20. Results are in Celcius.
    Next to that knowledge, it uses a few tricks on awk calculation, and first parameter in awk (the second parameter would be the hex value of the temperature code in parenthesis) which is easier than shell calculations.

Based on those, I found a few very useful scripts:

DefCon-21: ASUS RT-AC66U is vulnerable to SMB Symlink and ACSD hacks, I presume the ASUS RT-N66U is too (via

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/05

Since the ASUS RT-AC66U and ASUS RT-N66U are so similar, my guess is that the ASUS RT-N66U is vulnerable too.

Looking for a new Dynamic DNS provider for FritzBox 7340 and ASUS RT N66U

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/01

Found out the hard way that now requires you to perform a web login every 30 days for the free service: Free DNS requires monthly login? – Dyn Community Forum.

Basically I’m looking for a way to either

  1. host my own dynamic DNS compatible service (I already run normal DNS on 2 domains)
  2. use another free dynamic DNS service

The biggest problem: I’m using 2 routers that have a list of supported Dynamic DNS services that only partially overlap: Read the rest of this entry »

ASUS RT N66U did not update DDNS with changed IP addres

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/06/11

Today my router had an IP-address change, but didn’t update the information in my My Host Services | My Dyn Account. Which meant I could not “phone home”, as I didn’t know the new IP-address**.

Lesson re-learned:

During initial router configuration, watch the router logs, as you might have accidentally updated the by hand, not by your router

Had this in the ASUS Wireless Router RT-N66U – General Log:

Jun 11 08:01:53 notify_rc : restart_ddns
Jun 11 08:01:53 ddns: clear ddns cache file for server setting change
Jun 11 08:01:53 ddns update: connected to ( on port 80.
Jun 11 08:01:53 ddns update: server output: HTTP/1.1 200 OK^M Date: Tue, 11 Jun 2013 06:01:53 GMT^M Server: Apache^M X-UpdateCode: X^M Content-Length: 7^M Connection: close^M ^M notfqdn
Jun 11 08:01:53 ddns update: malformed hostname: myhostname

The problem: hostname should not only be the name of the host, but the FQDN of the host. Read the rest of this entry »
