Due to recent populate work from home situation, Asus updated their routes recently with a lot of QoS feature enhancements. So when I played with those features, I found that I could not disable QoS in the web interface. When you switch “Enable QoS” to “Off” and click “Apply”, nothing happens.

My route model is RT-AC68U, but when I Googled, I saw people with other models having similar issues. The solution, in theory, should work for other models too but no guarantees. There are other solutions that require telnet and commands, I pretty easier solutions :-)

The solution is
  1. When you are on the above page and select “OFF"
  2. Open Chrome “Developer Tools"
  3. Head to Console
  4. Put in “document.form.qos_enable_orig=1” and hit enter. You should see something like below after you hit enter:
  5. Click “Apply”, it should work now
