Asus RT-AC86U No wifi after reboot


Regular Contributor
I have my router on a reboot schedule 2 days a week.
Usually it works. But it happens same times it hangs on reboot.
What I have down is turn it on/off with the switch. Then it starts again.
I m on Merlin 386.3_2
Here are the logs if its possible to see if I can make same changes that will prevent this to happen.

Easy fix. Stop rebooting it.

Flashing the latest firmware, doing a full reset, and not using any saved backup config files (or USB drives previously used for amtm/scripts) would also be a good idea. Also, do not 'blindly' use any old scripts, features, or options that used to work 'once upon a time'.

Try a full clean install of your network/router and don't have an unnecessary scheduled reboot at all.

Thanks L&LD , I will do a hard factory reset.
I m using a merlin script "Restart Wan interface when internet is down"
I suppose that I can run that script again , the reason is that maybe once in a month there is wan connection but the RT-AC86U don't connect.
