    @Black Bird, I spoke with ASUS and they say you phone is not supported, from what I call, most phones are not officially supported, This is one of the areas ASUS could do so much better in, but they do support USB modems well. I seem to recall (I will check later as out at the moment) that you maybe be able to use an external Wifi/USB bridge or old ASUS Router to plug phone in and then connect to router ?

    —————- I am afraid in this case USB Tethering needed which is not supported by this phone model. —————

    Had a look and basically, you need to find another cheap RT (ASUS) router say the ASUS RT-AC56U /RT-AC66U and flash that with ASUSWRT-Merlin firmware and then go to LAN settings and changed the IP address so that is not the same as the mobile device, Next connected to hot spot. click on “Setup” and then select Auto-Detect,

    Most ASUS routers should support Android phones (iPhones are more problematic) , on your DSL-AC88U, try changing the default gateway to that of the mobile device and see if this helps for Internet access and of course make sure the DSL-AC88U and Phone do not use the same IP address.

    I can’t use this feature because it’s incompatible, thanks.

    Okay so I have the opportunity to get an RT-AC86U at discount and sell on my DSL-AC88U. Any opinions please? I have been watching this thread around the DSL firmware and it seems to have dried up compared to the 86U which has at least had a 2019 release! I realise that I will have to go back to a seperate modem but the future proofing seems better? I value your input :-)

    ASUS DSL team believe the next firmware will be released around Xmas time,

    All I can really say is that if the next release fails to meet expectation, then the DSL-AC88U is not an option for future consideration when purchasing a modem/router combo (my view).

    So basically, a whole year since the last update (14/12/2018). For what is a relatively highly priced “premium” piece of kit that is nothing short of disgraceful support.

    A year between updates wouldn’t be too bad if it weren’t so riddled with bugs and issues in the first place! For some of these issues to go unfixed for a whole year is scandalous.

    Well there is a lot of peoples who was truly satisfied with previous Asus routers like myself, and when we think about upgrading we go for something we was happy with, unfortunately nobody didn’t expect disappointment like this, where people have to tweak and work around a way to use top spec and top price device which should work straight out from the box….</p>
    Asus clearly have no idea what it’s mean “customer support”!!!

    Of course we all appreciate help and effort from @UK Sentinel, but how one man can force company like Asus where they already got all info and feedback from first hand, they just don’t listen…

    Looks like they need serious drop on sales to understand where is the problem.

    Anyone running IPv6 notice that if you set custom DNS servers, the modem will completely ignore it and use the default of the internet provider?

    IPv6 for the DSL-AC88U has issues (/56) generally does not work well, if possible utilise IPv4

    Hopefully this is one of the areas ASUS will correct in the next firmware release

    Even that I dont own a dsl-ac88u, I could not agree more. For an enthusiast product which it is, ..otherwise people would just use the ISP provided modem.., you release firmware updates in a timely fashion. Even if they only contain tiny fixes.
    It shows your customers you stand behind your product.

    Anyone know if it’s possible route all DNS requests (port 53) to an IP address (specifically a local Pi Hole)?

    Currently, I’m blocking Google DNS (hardcoded Chromecast) using LAN -> Route. Adding other public DNS will seem tedious. Is there any other way with the DSL-AC88U?

    So are you looking to route All LAN clients DNS that would normally be forwarded to  Main Router /External DNS Service to another DNS service located on your LAN (IP) ?

    If so, how do you propose handling LAN to LAN Routed DNS and any NAT implication  – or is this not an issue for yourself in your set-up with devices such as IP cameras etc. ?

    Yes to my Pi Hole. I don’t want IOT devices using their sneaky hardcoded DNS.

    If so, how do you propose handling LAN to LAN Routed DNS and any NAT implication – or is this not an issue for yourself in your set-up with devices such as IP cameras etc. ?

    I don’t have any IP cameras, so won’t be an issue?

    Does this work. or are you looking to create a singular static route ?

    Not sure if the DSL-AC88U has this option, but under LAN > DHCP Server is there an option to set DNS and WINS Server setting. this should then configure DNS queries obtained via DHCP to the DNS IP address of your Pi Hole IP Address.

    Then block port 53 ?
