ASUS RT-N12-C1 (the ASUSWRT Firmware)
Courtesy & thanks to ASUS, finally the WRT is available for this Broadcom device, always 1 of my favourite router
3 digits port-based multiple vlans is part of standard now
Finally a working QoS !!
Generally, the N12B1/C1 has been quite consistent in producing good N-speed compare to others similar range of entry level wireless router, thanks to it's effective Broadcom chip
WiFi speed test result, Write/Read a 2GB file size over my LAN's NAS, overall speed is 6/9MB/s (Write/Read)
Basic Setup for UniFi
WiFi Setup as follows
I always disable WPS function
For Broadcom better result with Preamble=Short
LAN Setup as follows
I prefer not to use the stock default 192.168.1.1 IP, I changed it to 192.168.0.1
Also prefer shorter IP range as follows, remember to still enter the Gateway IP = 192.168.0.1
This is where to select pre-configured Special ISP Requirement for multiple vlans-tag, notice UniFi-Home IPTV is at LAN4
WAN Setup as follows
WAN PPPoE setup, enter your UniFi user ID & password, advise to change DNS server to either Google or OpenDNS
Once completed the above basic setup, ALWAYS change the router's password !
Overall I tested it for 2 days with more than a dozen of various devices, no problem encourtered, this beta firmware is good to go !!
