    Been trying to get this flashed for 2 months.

    Router Firmware: 3.0.0.4.384_21140

    I used the AC68U downloads per the instructions.
    First I was trying 384.6 ,but then figured I may need 384.7
    The below happens with both version of the firmware

    Webui upload -Upload gets to 100% then immediately flash unsuccessful and revert.

    Rescue Mode - miniweb ui crashes once upload reaches 50% or so. Waitied an hour or so thinking maybe it was doing something, but nothing happens. It stays in the slow blink reccovery mode.

    I have googled and googled and read post after post trying to figure this out. I'm out of steam.

    Any suggestions?

    This forum is paranoid in relation to TM-version.
    I know there never exists something like that in 66U-housing.

    First I would try new stock 31799, do a factory reset, initialize reset and a 10sec. power cycle.
    Try again with Merlin.

    Following your steps worked. Before the rescue mode upload would crash. Now it didn't

    We're good. Thank you
