I saw your post, I went on my AX88U and I found it's running this release.
It looks like the option to auto-upgrade actually works! Even for nodes on a AiMesh.

Wasn't able to get Wireguard server to work. Got the QR code setup, and tried to connect with Android app, but no luck.

Is WG client working? from gui?

@RMerlin it seems WG is out of beta (from Asus, I mean). I believe it's ok to wait it in your next release?

I haven't seen the 388 source code yet, so it's impossible for me to speculate at this time.

Hi,

I have both Wireguard Clients on my MacBookPro 14” (macOS 12.5.1) and iPhone Xs Max (iOS 15.6.1) working using:
  • Wireguard 1.0.15 for macOS over my iPhone 4G Cellular hotspot
  • Wireguard 1.0.15 for iOS over my 4G Cellular connection
The FAQ on GUI Wireguard configuration page is quite straightforward:

My Asus 388.x wishlist:

A maximum of 3 concurrent VPN Tunnels possible in VPN Fusion.

Even if it‘s limited to new & powerful hardware, eg. AXE models.

Is it possible to use Asus router built in Wireguard AND PiVPN Wireguard together?

I suspect no, because UDP Port 51820 would need to forwarded to two different places; 1) the router itself if using built in Wireguard Server or 2) the device running PiVPN

Asus 388 firmware allows you to change the listening port on Wireguard. Changing the default listening port may be a good idea just as it is a good idea to change the port on OpenVPN.

Are you talking about running clients, or hosting servers?

Clients don't matter, just like your browser is able to connect to multiple website that are all on port 443. It`s only if you want to run a server that you need then to have different listening ports (or, to have a remote forwarded port different from the other running instance).

I am referring to hosing servers. I have PiVPN server and now my router has this functionality built in.

Would be great to have both servers running just in case.

UDP 51280 is the recognized port for Wireguard.
Can this be changed to any port?

Hi.. was someone able to activate the new device notification on this version? I searched all the settings but could not find an option to setup/enable this.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
It is in the Asus Router App; I am using iPhone with iOS
  • Start Asus Router App where you have access to your router
  • Go to Settings icon at the bottom right
  • Scroll down to Notification Settings
  • This is how the screen looks like (I am outside of my home at the moment using Wireguard on iPhone to connect to my Router and using Asus Router App. I have no new devices and I am outside, so not able to test notification now:()
