    RT-AX88U new firmware 3.0.0.4.384_8018

    Did you: a) do factory reset after the update and configured manually. b) do factory reset after the update and restored a saved configuration. c) just updated the firmware So far, I've been able to get away with just updating the firmware only. I haven't updated to 8018 yet, but maybe with...

    ax88u new firmware 3.0.0.4.384_7997-g9176478

    pod3545, you're probably correct. As per my post above, i haven't had any issues thus far, i didn't even do a factory rest. The reason it's working well for me could be, as you said. I only use the basic functions. I have a separate NAS, so i don't use the USB ports, no Game Boost, WPS off, i...

    RT-AX88U New official firmware Version 3.0.0.4.384.7977

    Yes, I always read you have to factory reset, but as Grisu said, try that only if you have issues afterwards. I updated to 7997 a few days ago via the ASUS interface, no factory reset. To be safe, i saved the config and saved a number of the interfaces screenshots first. It was used heavily by...

    ax88u new firmware 3.0.0.4.384_7997-g9176478

    Before this update, i had version 7968, doing a factory reset afterwards. For this 7997 update, which i installed 2 days ago, i didn't do a factory reset, I just installed the update, then did another reboot. Checked the settings, all appears OK. I run a variety of devices (up to ~20). It was...

    RT-AX88U New official firmware Version 3.0.0.4.384.7977

    Before the AX88U, i had the AC87U (and kept it for backup purposes), it's 5Ghz band wouldn't reach my Amazon devices, so they're on 2.4. When i got the AX88U, I moved almost everything to 5Ghz, but I left my Amazon Echo devices on the 2.4 band, the ASUS app shows 72 Mbps Tx/Rx speed for them...

    RT-AX88U New official firmware Version 3.0.0.4.384.7977

    Sorry if i'm stating the obvious but do you run a "WiFi Analyzer" app from your phone to check your surrounding area? I read it's best use the lower channels (36 up - UNII1 band) if possible, but for me running a analyzer app, saw 2 of my close neighbors taking up channels in this band and some...

    Guest Network, AI Protection, QoS, USB (already have a NAS), AiCloud all OFF Channel Bandwidth: 80Mhz Control Channel: 40 (I read its best to have the lowest channel possible, unfortunately, someone near me took 36, but 40 appears to work fine) A couple of static IPs, port forwarding for the...

    [Official] RT-AC87U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.378.9313

    I've also never had a problem with the 5ghz since buying my 87u a year ago, though I'm convinced there's hardware issues as well since so many have problems. I have 10+ devices running, though only a few on the 5ghz band. I stream a lot via the 5ghz - NHL subscription, Netflix, etc. through a...

    ASUS RT-AC87U WPA2 key cracked in 2 seconds

    I guess I'm from the old school (?) I've never used WPS and keep it disabled on my router. Hopefully ASUS will fix this though with their next release.
