Hi, I'm running a RT-AC86U with stock asus firmware 3.0.0.4.386_40451.
The client lists is outdated, is showing me many devices wired and wireless that are actually not connected (they were)
If I reboot the router, it will get the proper list but if I check in a couple of days, the list will be outdated.
This is annoying... elsewhere it seems to be working fine.

1) I wonder if this is s known problem or if Merlin firmware could solve this?
2) I'm using a pihole as DNS server, and I configured it to pass the devices name into the router, so I see their "device name" instead of the MAC, could this be the problem?

Been a known problem for a very long time...

Just a follow-up:
- I installed Merlin 386.1 for a completely different issue (I needed to use PBR...) [my issue on another thread]
and as a "byproduct" the client list seems to be working fine (as expected)

[Edit 2021-02-15]
Nope... Some devices are still showing on the client list long after they are disconnected...
