I just installed RC2-7 to my AC88U
It seems to work , except that I can not reach the Web UI.
I usually use http://192.168.254.1 to access (http not https) and it gets to the login screen. After I enter login credentials, it redirects to http://router.asus.com/Main_Login.asp
But then only empty page.

Asus Router app (Android) can reach the router, but after I try WebUI, it can not reach as well.

Also, I had a Lyra Mini connected to Aimesh. Now I can't see it on the Asus Router app.

What should I do ?

how can I revert back to previous firmware ?

I've managed to revert back with following method:

1.scp fw file to router
2.ssh
3. mtd-write2 firmware.trx linux && reboot

now it works as before.
but what's wrong with the RC7 ?

I am talking about this firmware:

isn't it Merlin FW ?
No it is not , that is from the official ASUS forum , nothing to do with Merlin.

You should know how to deal with that before changing firmware or playing with betas / release candidates.

Best practice is to have a folder containing the ASUS Recovery Tool, a copy of the firmware being presently run and the downloaded firmware you are wanting to flash.

You need to take great care that you are not trying to flash the wrong firmware.

You will now have to download and flash the firmware you previously had installed.

ok thx.
I've seen this thread here and thought it was a new RC which introduced Aimesh 2.0
Do I need Aimesh 2.0 to use AC+AX routers in same mesh ?

where is the " ASUS Recovery Tool" and can I flash Merlin-wrt fw with it ?

The ASUS tools/ utilities are available on the ASUS website support section for your device.

The recovery tool is for emergency use and not for flashing firmware.

Download the firmware you need and flash as you usually do. You'll may need to factory reset after flashing.
