      Can anybody answer... Does the stock firmware on the 87u allow option 61... Or do I have to put merlin on it?.

      As LeeH1978 has just done so I suspect you have to flash it, not an onerous task though.

      Yup it's easy.

      Search Asus merlin on you tube.

      Download it and install it. Simples

      Oh, then you need to find the Asus set up thread to complete the WAN section.
