You can set the Asus router app to give you Notifications. I do not know just what you will get, though. You can also set the router to auto upgrade. Some do not like this feature for obvious reasons. But for the majority of consumers it will not harm them and keep their firmware up-to-date.

My Configuration:
  • AiMesh Router: RT-AX88U 3.0.0.4.386_45934 + 2 x AiMesh Nodes: RT-AC86U 3.0.0.4_386_44470
  • Backhaul (Priority:"Auto", Type:"Wired"), Asus GX-U1051 5-Port Gigabit Switch from Router to Nodes, ISP: 1 Gbps Fibre
Everything appears to be working properly for my Configuration. I use Stock default NVRAM settings except with the following changes:
  • Enabled AiProtection: ON

  • LAN:
    • 40 items in my DHCP manually Assigned IP List (I used script to Backup and Restore these with customised icons)
  • Wireless:
    • 2.4 GHz: Fixed Channel Bandwidth 20MHz, Control Channel: 11, disabled both Explicit and Universal Beamforming.
    • 5.0 GHz: Fixed Channel Bandwidth 80MHz, Control Channel: 161
  • WAN DDNS:
    • Using Asus DDNS Service with Let’s Encrypt
    • Use DNS-over-TLS (with Cloudflare)
  • VPN Servers (Connecting one at a time from the following clients) working correctly:
    • OpenVPN works with
      • MacBookPro macOS Big Sur 11.6.1 - Tunnelblick 3.8.7 beta03 (build 5740),
      • iPhoneXsMax iOS 15.1 - OpenVPN Connect 3.2.3
    • IPSec works with MacBookPro & iPhoneXsMax Native Configurations
      • Cisco IPSec

The difference is my 5ghz radios haven't missed a beat since upgrading to it. I have a tendency to get unhappy when the white lights are on but nobody's home.

Is there any link (GitHub or otherwise) where all previous firmware versions are available along with release notes?

I have tried to search the forums but was not able to find this….

Thanks.

Does this help? you might want to use your own Asus regional or country website.
