    I can see release notes via ASUS router app, not up on ASUS website yet. Looks like bug fixes.

    Just ran the upgrade. Will let you know...

    Edit: So far so great! Have noticed no ill effects with this upgrade. All clients connected as they should. WIFI signal still seems strong (but I discovered a new Netgear router in my neighborhood that is set to 40 MHZ in the 2.4 GHZ band and is causing interference!)

    Just ran the upgrade this morning - so far no issues, though I'm running the 86U as an AiMesh node.

    Click on the version link for release notes, if they load... they don't yet.

    Dirty upgrade to 81918 seems ok 5 minutes in.

    Fear is the path to the dark side. ...

    4 hours 10 minutes up with zero issues on this firmware! Just do it...

    Was the download/upload dials (missing numbers) in Adaptive QOS dashboard fixed?

    Wow, what a disappointing list of fixes: mostly crap related to the useless "app" (an unnecessary security hole, IMO), plus a load of extra QOS categories for the marketing department. Yawn...

    I am seeing something new in the system general log using this firmware:

    roamast: [EXAP]Deauth old sta in 0 0: F8:6F:C1:78:B6:E9

    Never had this before appearing in my system log, until this firmware.

    My current NVRAM system log level is set at 5.

    Not sure what this means?

    Anybody else seeing this?

    I did do a dirty upgarde from the last current firmare.

    Signature file download for a new Asuswrt service (Auto Healing System) that can "self-heal" a few detectable issues.

    Changelogs are never complete. Quite a few fixes/changes aren't mentioned in them.
