Just curious, has anyone tried using the new ASUS RT-AX88U Pro router with high-speed full fibre services? If so, have there been any problems on either the BT infrastructure or CityFibre networks? Have you tried both the ASUS firmware and Merlin (beta?) firmware? Also, the ASUS website only appears to have a beta firmware available for download at the moment, so I'm wondering how someone would be able to restore the original stock firmware on the router if Merlin firmware had been used, or is the router being shipped with the beta firmware as per the ASUS info below:

ASUS RT-AX88U Pro Firmware version
Beta Version
64.84 MB
Be noted: This is an early stage beta, there might be bugs. This version can be downgraded via web GUI only.
Sorry, I posted this in the wrong part of the Merlin forum. Can it be moved?
Click on "See all downloads" to view the latest non-beta firmware.
