I have had my AC88U for over 2 years. When I first purchased I guess I updated to merlin firmware shortly after (so also more than 2 years). I successfully flashed to 380.7 just because it said I needed to, just in case, and then successfully flashed to 384.19. Router is up and running fine. In the instructions it says updating the AC88U from stock firmware to 384/NG will require a factory default reset due to the change in how admin passwords are stored. As I said, I upgraded to merlin just after purchased over 2 years ago so I wasn't upgrading now from stock. Does that invalidate the need for me to reset now? Or do I still need to do a factory reset due to security issues relating to how the admin password is stored?
