Mine only shows 43181 now for an update. This morning it showed 45879. I guess they had issues with it. I am staying with 42095 for now.

I took the plunge and 45879 seems to have resolved frequent drops on some older devices. Also on the positive side, our main Roku player has not experienced any lag/buffering as it did under 43181. I'll keep my fingers crossed, but looks to be a huge improvement for me.

Too bad 45879 appears to no longer be available.

The builds are incremental right? Despite released for different routers. I "built" the "change log" in
Code:
https://pastebin.com/3w7j3PyX
, and if so the changes are more than what's on this version changelog.

I kept the download from yesterday if you want to try it. I'm not responsible if something breaks tho.

No longer listed on the regional PT website as well. Still up on the global Asus site, but I guess it'll be pulled off the list too.

Do you still have the file? Only my main node got the update and the other 2 have the older firmware 43181. Would you be able to share?
