    I tried to update my AC87U to 384.12 firmware and the router just doesn't survive from the update and settings process. I'm using the router in AP mode and there are 2 computers connected in LAN ports 1 and 2, and I have only 5G WLAN radio enabled.
    After initial boot -> update -> power cycle -> manual system check -routine that I do after every firmware update the router just got stuck. I tried factory reset it lets me to make the initial setups. After I turn AP mode on and configure the WIFI, the router slows down after every setting and in the end it just doesn't work. The computers that I have connected don't get any data throug the router and the router doesn't respond to anything Only LAN1 LED blinks, but others are silent. With 384.11_2 firmware I can do all the configurations I need and it works, but even there I can notice a slowdown during the configurations. By slowdown I mean the router recovers slower and slower after every time I apply some settings. With 384.12 firmware usually after some of the latest configuration I do the router doesn't recover anymore. It doesn't mater in which order I apply the settings. AP mode -> Wifi 2.4G off -> wifi 5G settings + channel -> System settings it always gets stuck at some point or the other.

    There are some errors in the log (see below) and it seems similar with both 384.12 and 384.11_2 firmwares. I have no idea if it has anything to do with the issue.
