Install Astrill Router Applet directly onto ASUS Merlin firmware (ASUSWRT-Merlin firmware) routers.

Install ASUS Merlin Firmware

First check if you have compatible router, and then install ASUS Merlin Firmware onto your router.


ASUS Merlin Supported Routers: Asus RT-N16, Asus RT-N66U and Asus RT-AC66U


ASUS Routers Firmware:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=11&m=RT-N66U (VER.B1)

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=11&m=RT-AC66U

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=11&m=RT-N66R

Note: if you have an RT-AC66R or RT-N66R, these routers are exactly the same as the 'U' versions. The only difference is these are sold by large retailers such as Best Buy. You can freely flash Asuswrt-Merlin on these two routers as well.


Enable JFFS on ASUS Router

Enable JFFS before installing the Astrill applet. On router UI we have to enable "jffs partition" and "Format JFFS partition at next boot" under Administration / System tab and reboot router.
