It has most if not all of that built into the stock firmware. But you could venture to install Merlin if you wanted.

Point to the better deal on this router. Maybe you rather spend full price? So what if the coupon is for everything on ebay. Look at the other FP deals that are pointing out the same thing.

You are using that word in the wrong context.

Almost the same as you lying about the ebay coupon & what a deal that is.

Need to defend the Op on this one Jhooper, even though the deal is the code. He is still highlighting something the code works on that people might overlook. It also helps trigger peoples alerts who have router or asus or anything else listed for a deal trigger.

That being said this is one of the best deals on this router yet, and the reviews on this router are spectacular. If you have a 2000ish ft and under house this is way better than any mesh system you can buy as long as you can centralize it.

A deal is a deal. I could care less if it's a coupon code that can be applied to multiple things. I wouldn't have realized it otherwise.

Some of you just need to get over it and don't bother opening these threads.

Only if they have a store location or distribution center in your state will they charge you tax, I believe is the protocol.

Does this router have a scheduled reboot option in its stock firmware so I can have it restart daily at a given time?

I took a quick look but with stock firmware I dont believe so. Honestly not sure why you would want to either? If you have a stable reliable network all components should have high uptime.

On my RT-AC88U, which is running similar firmware, there is an option under Administration, System, Basic Config, Enable Reboot Scheduler. You can select the days and time.

Just took a look at both users manuals and they don't call this feature out, but running the latest firmware I do see it on the 88U
