    Hi Guys,

    I bought AX88U yesterday to replace broken dsl-AC88U router. AX88U behaves weirdly when i am trying to bind any client mac address to static ip. After hitting apply - the router will drop WAN connection and 2.4 + 5ghz WIFI connections also. Router must be re-booted it in order to get WAN connection working again. It does the same if I configure DNS server addresses explicitly. I am using latest ASUS firmware - i upgraded firmware during initial set up. Is this known issue in firmware or maybe some hardware related problem? Attached log has mcast related errors - are they normal?

    5 01:09:03 kernel: ^[[0;33;41m[ERROR mcast] bcm_mcast_netlink_process_snoop_cfg,884: interface 22 could not be found^[[0m

    Did you do a full reset to factory defaults including checking the 'Initialize all settings...' checkbox too, after flashing the latest RMerlin firmware?

    Did you import any saved config files? Did you 'blindly' copy your old settings from the other router to the new one?

    Are your running the just-released RMerlin firmware 384.16_0 on the router?

    Please be specific about versions. What is "latest" today may not be tomorrow and there are alphas, betas, .....

    I am not experiencing these issues with my AX88U. 384.15 fw
