    Asuswrt-Merlin 384.3 is now available. While this release isn't perfect, it reached a stability point where the remaining issues have been consuming too many hours of my time and I'm still unable to reproduce them. Since it's working fine for the vast majority, I decided it was high time to have this wrapped up, so I could move on to working with newer code base, with hopefully the remaining fixes in there.

    The highlights:
    • Merged with GPL 384_10007. Note that AiMesh is NOT supported. Due to its complexity, a lot of work will be required to determine whether or not supporting it is possible. Initial analysis wasn't looking good on that front.
    • Added support for the RT-AC3200 (based on 382_19466 components). Note that once upgraded to 382/384, the RT=AC3200 gets upgraded to 128 KB nvram, which means you can NOT downgrade back to any 380.xx release.
    • RT-AC3200 supports once again up to 5 OpenVPN clients (like other models).
    • Updated nano to 2.9.3. You can also now configure it through /jffs/configs/nanorc (see the nano documentation for syntax).
    • Security fix for CVE-2018-5721.
    • NAT acceleration for PPPoE has been fixed for most models (can't provide a definitive list since I can't test it)
    • Repeater mode fix backported from GPL 384_20287
    • Workaround for broken clients like Samsung TVs that insists on requesting localhost as a hostname
    • Fixed ipset on the RT-AC86U
    • Various other fixes to IPv6, PPTP clients, networkmap - see the changelog for details

    As I was waiting for Sourceforge to resolve issues on their end which were preventing me from releasing this (they just went through a datacenter migration that ran into quite a few problems), I was able to start working on merging 384_20379. Things are already fairly advanced on that front. Hopefully the 384.4 development cycle should be less painful than 382.2 and 384.3 have been.

    I'm also gonna see if I can squeeze some time in to get a minor 380.70 release out to fully close down that branch, since 384.4 should in theory implement support for the last missing models (RT-AC5300 and RT-AC87U) - if all goes well. I haven't had time to spend much time on either of these yet.

    Upgraded from 382.2 beta 3 and did a factory reset. Haven't encountered any issues so far.

    Thanks, Eric!

    I have a sat box that does this. I can confirm that the issue is resolved with the latest firmware.

    Is a factory reset recommended if upgrading from 382.1_2?

    I ask because I don’t see anything saying it’s needed and technically this is the first non-Beta release since that version (2 if you count the aborted 382.2 version).

    Shouldn't be, but some things might require reconfiguration. I don't remember the actual list of which were changed since 382.1, sorry.

    Merlin,

    There isn’t a 384_20379 for my model router. Is that new?

    Thanks.

    I don't understand your question.

    When will you transition the RT-AC5300 to the 384 builds?
    I’m now running the factory FW again instead of 380.69

    You mentioned build 384_20379 in post #2, I just noticed that build is for another model. My apologies for the confusing question. I’m up way to late.
