    384.4_2 - RT-AC88U

    After 3 days of up-time I noticed that some devices weren't working upon investigation I found that the 2.4ghz wireless network was not being broadcasted. The 'hide' option was not set. I turned off the 2.4ghz radio and turned it back on and everything is connecting just fine once again. Not sure if there is some sort of log file I can see to find out what crashed/what happen?

    For such reason I gave back my 88u: wifi is behaving bad, no matter which fw version i flashed.
    Try this: power off the unit then wait 5/10 minutes. Power it back and everything should work.

    turning the wireless radio off and on does make it work again as noted before. but having to reboot the router to make the 2.4ghz wireless is not ideal. I never had such issues with my RT-66U with merlin's firmware. guessing this 384.x is just bugged?
