    Could be coincidence but since installing 3.0.0.4.382_50470 a few days ago my RT-A66U wifi lost connectivity a few times. Anybody else?

    **UPDATED - Clarified that the A66U wifi was stalled out but the router itself did not reboot based on the log reading**

    Considering it's a major upgrade from 380 to 382, I would recommend doing a factory default reset, and manually reconfiguring everything. That might help with those types of random problems.

    I have similar issue. Does factory reset works for you? Or can i downgrade to previous firmware?

    I'm going to perform a firmware update on a AC66U I beleive haven't been updated in many years. I don't have access to the router yet, so I don't know the actual firmware version.

    I've tried to find info regarding this, but have not come to a conclusion yet:
    Can I go straight to latest firmware?

    Will update this post if I find the answer myself.


    Edit:
    https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki/Installation
    "Starting with Asus's 3.0.0.4.380_3000, a new firmware format is used. To flash Asuswrt-Merlin on one of these newer firmwares, you will need 380.61 or newer. Likewise, downgrading to an older version is not supported. (Try firmware recovery mode if you really need to downgrade.)"
    So, I'll try flashing first stable 380 ASUS fw if flashing straight to latest fw fails.
