    The focus of this release was the addition of two new models, the RT-AX58U (and it's RT-AX3000 cousin) and the RT-AX56U.

    I am also formally announcing that as of now, the RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200 are on limited support (which has already been the case for the last two releases, I'm just making it official now since the solutions I investigated didn't work out). The main reason is these two models are no longer based on the same code as their other recent models, and that older code is no longer compatible with mine, making it impossible for me to compile my latest GPL code for these two models. If eventually Asus decides to bring them back on the same codebase as the other main models (like the RT-AC68U or RT-AC88U) then I will be able to bring them back into full support mode. However if it doesn't happen in the near future, then I will eventually be forced to completely drop these two models. For now I just backported a few fixes to them, see the 384.13_5 changelog for details.

    The highlights of this release:
    • Added support for the RT-AX58U, RT-AX3000 and RT-AX56U.
    • Merged GPL 384_8253 (for AX models).
    • Merged 384_7977 binary blobs for the RT-AX88U.
    • Updated components: Tor (0.4.2.6), curl (7.68.0), nano (4.8), inadyn (2.6), getdns (1.6.0), stubby (0.3.0), amtm (3.1.4).
    • The Wireless Log page will now show Guest clients separately from the regular ones.
    • Added traffic meter to the main status page. To save space, I removed the mostly useless RAM chart (but it will still report usage itself)
    • Fixed VPN clients being unable to use the router as their DNS server.
    • Fixed miniupnpd refusing to work if WAN IP was a private IP (was only partly fixed in the past)
    • And a few other minor fixes to the webui

    The following will require extended testing.

    RT-AX56U and RT-AX58U:
    • IPSec VPN Server
    • AiCloud services
    • USB disk sharing performance
    • Ipset
    • And everything else in general, but these are more important

    RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200:
    • Just make sure that there were no regressions in the couple of backports made to these two (see their changelog for details)

    Please keep discussions in this thread for these specific beta releases and the changes introduced by them. Off-topic posts may be moved, deleted or ignored based on my humor at the time.

    Known issues:

    • Traffic spike on the Traffic Monitor (I attempted to reapply a recent change from Asus along with a fix backported from upstream, looks like that fix still doesn't fix it. Will be reverted in beta 2.)
    • Guest clients on the second 5 GHz radio are listed under the first 5 GHz radio SSID (wrong variable referenced, fixed in beta 2)
    • RT-AX56U power led stays off (Hardware issue, Asus's own fix was requiring a software component that was missing in my firmware, fixed for beta 2)
    • Inadyn reports version 2.6 (cosmetical issue, this is really 2.7, just the version string didn't get bumped at compile time)
    • RT-AX56U LAN leds won't turn back on if disabling and re-enabling either through WPS or webui (Bug in Asus's closed source code, outside of my control)
    • USB2 port not mounting disks on RT-AX56U (Fixed ports not being enumerated in the correct order due to kernel overriding manual module loading. Fixed for beta 3.)

    Asustor's Onedrive application sucks. For some reason it synced the folder but not the content, and now that I tried to remove and readd the folder, it won't even allow me to select any folder at all anymore, showing me an empty list.

    Use Sourceforge for now, Onedrive was always intended only as a backup location.

    RT-AX88U dirty flashed on every available firmware version (alpha, beta or release) since originally fully reset on RMerlin 384.14 Beta 3 back on December 7, 2019.

    No issues, all working as expected. :)

    Thank you again RMerlin.

    The guest network shows the correct name for 2.4ghz but the default name on 5ghz in wireless log AC5300

    Guest Network 1: ASUS_5G-1_Guest1

    I love the new upload download graph thanks

    Does 384.16 include the 3.0.0.4.384.81352 release which patches the Kr00k vulnerability in the RT-AC86U?

    Sorry, I can never find the page that shows changes from build to build. Are these changes from alpha2:

    - FIXED: DNS server was unreachable when connecting to an OpenVPN
    server with Advertise DNS enabled, due to firewall rules.
    - FIXED: Router Security Assessment would fail to recognize WPA3
    as being secure.
    - FIXED: miniupnpd would reject private WAN IPs - changed that
    upstream behaviour to allow these.
    - FIXED: Would require you to reset the DHCP scope if you
    changed the LAN hostname.
    - FIXED: Couldn't set http mode to http-only if you previously
    had WAN access enabled but have since switched to
    non-router mode.

    I am not using the built-in DNSSEC instead I let cloudflare do it using DOT at the same time. Clear your browser cache before you do the test.

    A stubby upgrade was noted in the changelog. It's been a while since I've visited that thread, so I'm out of that loop (and frankly can't remember if I have to add it via terminal or amtm/Diversion or if it's part of the firmware for DoT, selectable/configurable in the UI).
    Maybe I should be sleeping rather than trying to figure that out.
