Hi, i have a noob question... There is an official update for AX11000 (3.0.0.4.386_44266) where it seems they fixed stability issues (2.5G port unstability), are those fixes getting implemented here? Idk how merlin beta updates works for implementing fixes from official firmware. Thanks in advance!
Have you read changelog?

Since you're new, what @octopus means is Merlin will list any new GPL baselines in the changelog. Since there is nothing listed, that means no change.

If you look at the changelog (https://www.asuswrt-merlin.net/changelog) and search for GPL, you can see the last update was in 386.2 to GPL 386_42095.

Dirty upgrade b1 to b2 on AX86U's - no problems - VPN Director / VPN Server and VPN Clients [x4] all steady as before. {ThumbsUp}

I know this is obvious - but make sure you are trying to apply firmware for AC88U and not AX88U.
I have never known Merlin to release firmware which won't fit on the designated model.

You might want to try unmounting any USB drives (from the GUI, main index page), and/or physically removing them before flashing a newer firmware. If that still fails, sometimes a fresh reboot shortly before another attempt at flashing has been beneficial.

Make sure you have "yes all" or "policy rule" ticked in.

Main Router (AX88U) update from latest Alpha without problems - runs for 8 hours like a charm! :cool:
And 2nd update to Beta2 the same: Flawless update after freeing memory and runs like charm (with 1 VPN client routed to a separate WLAN sub-net)

Dirty upgrade from b1 to b2 across all devices last night. VPN testing was successful after to confirm configs were preserved. All good so far. All devices re-connected.

Dirty upgrade from beta 1 to beta 2 across both units (at two different locations), so far so good as expected!

386.2_6 > Beta1 > Beta2.

All OK here on 3 AX86U routers. VPN not configured at the moment as not using.

@shabbs, Noticed you posted 4 mins after RMerlin's post.
I sincerely mean this as a friend, perhaps you should switch to a decaffeinated baseball cap ;)

LOL. Was just getting ready shut down for the night too and saw it. Figured it was a good time to give the new beta a spin with everyone else headed to bed. Coffee is life.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but which PIA/VPN service do you find is fastest/most stable?
Mine does okay on individual devices, but it's awful for whole-home (drops from 500Mbps w/o to 30Mbps w/ VPN on)

Quick note before I dive into Beta 2...

With Alpha 386.3 my RP-AX56 would not connect as Mesh node. I updated the RP fw to latest, tried again, no luck. I waited, was able to add as Mesh node with 386.3 Beta1 successfully.

Will update to Beta2 later today to see if it continues to connect, but currently fam on a web conf call.
