    I have seen from other users the DSL-N16 is using a high amount of RAM, I am sure the usage should not be that high, does the RAM usage ever increase to 58MB ?

    Wifi password is interesting, is this 2.4Ghz and is this only with certain wifi clients, what length password are you using currently ?

    Try changing wifi control channel to 3 or 7 ?

    ram usage increase during times right after reboot free RAM was 22MB.modem uptime was more than 3 days.but you are correct it should not be that high and asus firmware has bug/glitch.

    wifi band is 2.4 GHz and all client lost wifi connection and internet connection, also i was not able to open modem setup page (192.168.1.1) via wifi. password length is 13 characters.

    i’ll try to change wifi channel and see if problem happen again.

    I am thinking after reboot, everything works as expected, as RAM usage increases, this is when Wifi clients drop and issues with passwords start etc ?

    Did this happen with previous firmware’s ?

    yes sir,after i reboot the router everything works fine and i was able to connect to wifi without any issue.after reboot free RAM was 22MB.i’m not sure the cause of this issue is RAM or something else but it happen randomly and several times with latest firmware.also i feel newer asus firmware is slower than older firmware.it take several seconds to open setup page with new firmware.unfortunatly i didn’t test older firmware but i think older firmware could have same issue with wifi.

    @kamiboy – hopefully when ASUS look at the VPN issue for you next week, this will hopefully highlight the RAM issues.

    I will send ASUS an email and ask regarding RAM usage and if ASUS contact you, let then know about RAM usage being high

    Mine does the same, free RAM drops to 4MB.

    Usually it runs fine for 1-2weeks, then suddenly you can’t connect through WIFI any more. Turning the radio OFF/ON through the admin page gets it going again.

    Also when you have the wireless scheduler enabled, when the wifi radio turns off, it also turns off your LAN.

    Mine has been running for 12 days now, with free RAM around 4 MB. Will see how much longer it can go. Firmware Version:v9.1.2.3_783

    Ok, had to reboot this morning, router became unresponsive, no connection possible, either through WLAN or LAN.
    So it lasted a little over 12 days without reboot.

    • before reboot 3/4MB free RAM
    • after reboot 11/12MB free RAM
    • router only has 3 phones (2 simultaneously) connecting through WLAN and only 1 PC through LAN
    • older firmwares that i tried experience the same issue. (But have not tried all versions)
    • System log > General log does not show the most recent entries, only older up to a certain timestamp. This timestamp varies after you hit the refresh button. But it seldom shows the most recent log entry. Sometimes it doesn’t show a log it all. The non beta firmware has this issue as well.

    Much more minor bugs in the firmware, but the RAM/Reboot issue and the log entries stand out for me.

    Thanks, highly appreciated!

    Additional info: My router runs almost stock settings and has a light load with only a maximum of 3 devices attached at one time. (2WLAN/1LAN)
    I just let it do its job, until it becomes unresponsive.

    @kamiboy – ASUS have contacted me today regarding DSL-N16 VPN, so I have mentioned you sent them a Feedback form on the 8th, I have also mentioned to ASUS regarding the memory usage causing issues over time, so hopefully they will contact yourself in a day or two
