New Around Here
Update notes don't really seem to apply to my usage. Anybody know if updating to this latest firmware improves wireless performance or stability? Always a bit hesitant to update firmware these days. New to the Asus Router (AX58U) family, greetings :)


New Around Here
Some users have stated better speeds and stability in 2.4ghz, but YMMV. If it's stable now, maybe don't bother upgrading.
