Hi guys,

I just wanted to advise you that I have noticed that my Asus RT-AC68u keeps losing connection when connected as AiMEsh node in firmwares tested later than 384.19 and same thing happened to my RT-AC66u which I have now replaced with RT-AC88u.
What happens is that the WAN port on the node completely "dies" and no resets help. Also the web ui cannot be accessed only right after reset and after NVRAM clean. I've rolled back to 384.19 as this has been running perfectly since the release. The latest firmware works great on RT-AC88u though.

No problems on my RT-AC68U AIMesh Node running 386.2_4 connected to RT-AX3000 running 386.2_4 connected via WiFi backhaul. Recommend you provide some additional information related to your setup so that folks can try and help troubleshoot.
