386.5 cannot change client name

I am running merlin 386.5 on an Asus RT-AC86U router.
In previous version I was able to change the name of the client (see attached image), however since the I upgraded to 386.5 the changes are not saved when I click 'apply'.
Am I doing something wrong or is this a possible bug?

Thank you for your reply.

I have tried from the client list button from the main page, from the LAN > DHCP Server page (for those assigned static ip addresses) and from the "client status" list (appears on the right after clicking on the monitor in the circle above the client list button on the main page) . All three places same result. It continually reverts back to the MAC address and even the changed icon reverts back to the default.

Also I am noticing that many of my assigned ip addresses now show up on the client list page as DHCP and not Manual. (see attached sample)

I can edit mine with 386.5. Must be something specific to your system.

I can confirm that there are no issues with DHCP custom names and icons, because after upgrading to 386.5 I did a factory reset and manually entered all custom DHCP clients.
Maybe the OP should also do a factory reset? :rolleyes:

edit: fix typo

I've seen this happening on different Asus routers running Asuswrt or Asuswrt-Merlin, different firmware versions. Just log out of the GIU, log in again and change the name. Perhaps web server quirk, but not related to Asuswrt-Merlin 386.5 in particular. Just happens from time to time.

Thank you for the advice. A factory reset seems to have corrected the issue.
