    AC88U beta Version 9.0.0.4.386.41994

    I don't have any complaints with it but am surprised that the final hasn't been released yet.

    Release New RT-AX88U firmware 3.0.0.4.386.42095

    I would suggest that you RMA the unit which requires that you establish a tech support case first.

    My parents sent their 1.5 year old RT-AC88U in for warranty repair and......got a new one in return

    I just wanted to follow up that this is the first 88u that we've had that did not show any activity under the AIprotection malicious site blocking. We go to the same sites as always so I'm suspicious of its function. At least each machine has its own firewall and antivirus software running.

    My parents sent their 1.5 year old RT-AC88U in for warranty repair and......got a new one in return

    We contacted Asus via their support number and obtained a case number. Then I submitted the router logs from the router menu attaching the case number so they would have it on file. I spend time on the phone with their tech who walked me through some steps during which the router failed...

    My parents sent their 1.5 year old RT-AC88U in for warranty repair and......got a new one in return

    They received the replacement today and it was sporting a firmware version that is not available on the support site but judging from the numbers its from sometime in early 2019. I flashed it to the current beta and loaded the settings back in (I keep them stored by firmware version). I ran...

    Today Asus tech confirmed that the hardware is bad and its being RMA'd again. While on the phone with them the stupid thing just dropped out forcing me to reboot it. Hopefully the next replacement will function properly when we get it.

    Release New RT-AX88U firmware 3.0.0.4.386.42095

    I'm still satisfied with this firmware and haven't had any issues with wireless clients as of yet. I also have it set to reboot on Sunday mornings like I always do just to clear things out and everything reconnects like normal. The phone utility works normally as well allowing me to connect to...

    It is running 41700 and I've factory reset it more than once already.

    Man this thing has been disconnecting on us multiple times a day so it has to go back. I reinstalled my ax88u and put it back in its box. What are the odds of getting a dud right out of the box?

    Release RT-AC88U Version 3.0.0.4.386.41700

    I just rolled back to 41700 after the router just glitches then drops the internet all together. Last night I observed core 2 running at 100% while my internet turned intermittent. If this keeps up it will go right back on rma and ax88u will come back out.

    Now you would expect to hear about a lengthy repair time and lack of spare parts...all of which are true. However, Asus said that the repair was completed and returned a router to them. Well I say a router because it wasn't the repaired broken unit that they sent them rather it was a brand new...

    Beta RT-AX88U 9.0.0.4.386.41994

    I updated just for the security fix and will report if I see any issues.

    Beta RT-AX88U 9.0.0.4.386.41994

    I'm glad that I found this thread before I updated my router. I think I"m going to wait and let you guys be the guinea pigs on this one.:p

    Release New AX88U Firmware v3.0.0.4.386.41700

    I just took my new AX88U out of the box a short while ago and immediately updated to the current firmware so I don't have any time running it but I did have to manually tell the router to look for new firmware. Normally the yellow exclamation mark is blinking when my routers connect to the net...
