    Hello! I'm new, nice to meet you all.
    Need some help please!
    I have a new RT-AC86U (2 weeks) with a (small) problem.
    Every few days, the router stops, i.e. I can't find the wifi network anymore, the router is turned off, the lights are out, not responding. I have to power off than on and it's ok for a few days and then shuts down... so on.
    Merlin latest version right out of the box.
    Typical settings, PPPoE, nothing special.
    6-8 clients (wifi only).
    Set to reboot every morning at 6am. - I have disable it now.
    CPU temp: 70-74C.

    After 2 of these I've set it (for now!) as AP. The main router was and is back again a RT-N56U (which I have for 6-7 years - rock solid!).
    Uploaded syslog. Last shut-down was today. Discovered around 10am - couldn't find wifi any more.
    Any advice is helpful and much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Looks like garnik had this issue too! See #1 on his post here.
    Could this daily reboot be the issue?

    Hi Arthur.
    I don't know that, I'm still testing it with Merlin from day 1. It's day 3 since I disabled auto-reboot schedule and, for now, it's ok.
    I'm going to test it with official FW as well.
