Supported Devices

Asuswrt-Merlin is available in two separate branches:

  • The original (legacy) Asuswrt-Merlin (up to version
  • The new generation (current) branch (version and newer)

Each branch supports different models. As Asus upgrades models to the new 382/384 code base, they will gradually be migrated to Asuswrt-Merlin's new gen branch, with the exception of the RT-N66U and RT-AC66U which will remain on the legacy 380 branch. Development has been abandoned for the legacy branch.


If you own the above router, then stop reading this page.

No longer supported:

  • RT-N16

NOTE: all the "R" versions (for example RT-N66R) are the same as their "U" counterparts, they are just different packages aimed at large retailers. The firmware is 100% compatible with both U and R versions of the routers. Same with the "W" variants that are simply white.
