On 384.15 and trying to upgrade to either .16 or .17 experience the same issue. The update will say complete but when I log back in I am still on .15.

I have reset the router back to factory settings but still having the same issue.

Do you have a Asus branded router or one supplied by a cellphone company?

Remove any USB devices before attempting the upgrade.

Your router is running illegal software and is not supported by Merlin. See the multiple sticky posts at the top of the Merlin forum. Asus are blocking firmware updates on these routers now.

Illegal and not supported are very different.
Indeed. And in this case it's both. It's illegal in the sense that the 382/384 firmware branches added proprietary software that wasn't ever licensed to the cellphone company. So yes, it's illegal in the same way that running unlicensed Windows software on your PC is.

I responded similarly to the above, earlier, but my post needs moderator approval. :)
