    In some dire need of assistance (AX86U)

    Another update, it's been about 5 days and no Chromecast disconnects. It's been working fine apart from the Mini's. One thing I did was add the Mac addresses to "WOL: Wake on LAN", and while I doubt this affected anything, they've remained connected.

    I didn't realize there was a firmware update. Updated to 3.0.0.4.386_41535 and called Asus support. They told me to monitor after a day or two and report back. Hopefully this fixes it. Caught this in log...fix? https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/RT-AX86U/HelpDesk_BIOS/ - Client device...
