I am wondering: why are there two different versions of OpenSSL present/needed?
Works great anyway!

Oh, I'm even afraid to say, but three different versions...

The first one (version 0.9.8) is for running the rather obsolete fbwifi program (don't worry too much, it is not used explicitly w/o your explicite intervention), the second version 1.0.2 for running services like ReadyCLOUD, https, and the like (used by NG/DNI because of outdated SDK they have to use), and the third version 1.1.1 is my attempt to go more modern by avoiding significant security vulnerabilities for several services, such as OpenVPN, DoH with TLS 1.3 etc.

Best firmware for R7800 provide better security and faster speed, and the ONLY reason I still staying on R7800 as main router.

Yep. I have an asus ax-82u with faster wifi and supports some LACP.... but I can't have the tricked out DNS configuration that I can do with voxel's version, so I keep the r7800 as my main

Anyway, I upgraded from 1.0.2.94.4. I did get the warning about .95 being older.

seems fine so far! Thanks for the work!

as usual I had to restore my one line dnsmasq config edit to restore using the full dnsmasq from here:

Thank you for this. I've been remediating openssl at work and had completely neglected it at home.

For some reason I can't get this installed. It uploads, a page flashes and then takes me back to the Firmware Update page.
On 1.0.2.94.4SF.

Edit: Changed to a different browser and it worked, but gave me a warning about it being an older firmware than the one already installed.
