I was wondering if I could use the TUF gaming AX3000 FW on my RT-AX58U, since they are the same router?

Thanks in advance.

They share the exact same firmware for those two models.

If there are any differences, the firmware must be picking up the specific model to enable them or not.

Don`t. The TUF-AX3000 is not the same thing as the RT-AX3000 (which is the one identical to the RT-AX58U).

Listen to what RMerlin stated. :)

RMerlin, I didn't realize that there were three models!





There is indeed a small (0.62MB) difference in the firmware sizes. Even if they all have the same version number and changelogs.

RT-AX3000 and RT-AX58U should share the same firmware, they're like RT-AC68U and RT-AC1900P.

TUF-AX3000 is a different SKU only available in China (and maybe other Asian markets). It runs a different firmware, and I suspect there might be other differences in hardware and/or bootloader since the firmware is built from a separate build profile than the RT-AX58U.
