I have three Asus RT-AC68U routers and one has been a constant problem.

Right now it's in bridge mode, and I have to reset it every few days.

I'm guessing it has to do with this error:
Code:
kernel: Interface wl1.2 doesn't exist

Any ideas around resolving this issue? I'm running the latest stock firmware with minimal settings changed other than switching to HTTPS for login. I'm connecting to the main router via 5Hz.

Operation Mode: Media Bridge
Firmware Version: 3.0.0.4.384_45717
Here are the full logs from the past day. Thanks!

I get the same problem, RT-AC68U running Merlin 384_13. Same error. Interestingly I run two of these in the same setup and only one errors. Have two reset it at least once a week. It's also on 5Ghz
