Just updated mine, exactly the same messages.

Rolled back to 20490 and they went away.

Dreaming of a day where Asus actually fix the bug with the ACSD process shooting my CPU to 100%.

Same here.

Is rollback advised or is this just an annoyance with nothing, other than an extraneous log entry, actually wrong?

I honestly don't know, I rolled back because my router gave me the option to update before the firmware was available on the Asus website and I couldn't read the release notes. I guessed it's a bug and was concerned there may be others.

I did email Asus but got the stock reply about returning my router to my point of sale for replacement.

The new firmware is now in the Asus site.

"The new firmware is now in the Asus site."

I assume you mean the "new" firmware that exhibits the subject message, not newer-yet firmware that fixes it. When I use the router to check for updates it tells me I have the latest.

That is correct. Last night it (3.0.0.4.385_20585) was not available for manual download. Apologies for the poor command of English in my last message...I was dictating to my youngest and she's been off school too long. I usually always quote version numbers at every stage for clarification.

I will not be updating just yet.[/QUOTE]

I was getting PortLinkStatus=7 , Port 7 my PI VPN was not contactable rebooted no difference replaced cable VPN now operational and message is now showing PortLinkStatus=5 , Does anyone know what these codes mean or does it refer to the port number. CPU usage is in single figures and RAM under 40% so will continue with this firmware and won't rollback unless anything else comes out the woodwork.

I opened an incident with ASUS and they gave me some debugging chores. The short version:

1. Turn off 80 mhz.
2. Try all control channels. They listed all 5 and 2.4 channels.
3. Disable explicit and universal beam forming,
4. Use legacy or N-only modes.

None of that made any difference. I reported that but have not yet received a follow-up.

All their debugging had something to do with wireless which doesn't make sense if the "ports" are the Ethernet ports, but that is not necessarily the case. I unplugged all the Ethernet cables but that didn't help.

I'm getting those log entries but not that frequently. About 20 as of 10:30 a.m. today. And I was seeing them long before I updated to 20585. Appear to have started about June 3rd.

Noticed my harmony hub had red light on and my belkin plug was orange (weak WiFi signal) but both devices are working, rolled back and harmony returned to green and orange light on belkin went out, no time to troubleshoot but something astray in wireless on new version also, will wait for next update

Strangest thing is that there now is a new FW 20630, but the forgotten debugging output is still there...
Use the Feedback form on the router to report it.

It's very strange...at least I'm not alone!

Thank you for the information, bertilak - I may give it a try when I have some time. I don't see any issues that are causing the messages and hope Asus will address it in their next release - right now I've viewing it as just a nuisance! BTW, I took RMerlin's suggestion and sent feedback.

While troubleshooting another issue I just noticed I was getting "kernel: portsLinkStaus=d" every 4 seconds, similar to above. I rolled back to 3.0.0.4.385.20490 and it has cleared.

Does anyone know if this "portLikStatus" problem is fixed in 3.0.0.4_385_20630?

No mention of it in the limited info on the download page.
