Sporadic GT-AXE11000 reboots due to kernel panic

I have two AXE-11000's and both reboot like within 2-5days, as back in previous append. I reported to ASUS and they advised my issue was a wireless issue and try different firmwares. I've tried... Merlin's 386.7_2, 386.7_0, 386.5_2 and ASUS FW_GT_AXE11000_300438649675, FW_GT_AXE11000_300438647875 no resolution to reboots on either unit.
In the last reboot yesterday (no devices attached) syslog went from 27Jul 06:30 (when it crashed) to 5May 01:05 and lots of logs within seconds, frequent broadcom words, then back to 27Jul 07:26 in a gap of 56mins later. I attached the log for those that might be interested, or have ideas. Updated ASUS with this last crash, not heard back yet.

I'm using now for primary household a GT-AX6000 running 386.7_0 then _2 and no issues at all, very happy with this unit & it's performance. My playing on 6GHz halted at present. :-(

Time to test the 386.7_2 release then.

Well, 386.7_2 didn't work then.
Lasted almost 4 days then had two Kernel panics in a row.
At least it came back up without intervention this time.

My reply was to @Forsaken, but if you're having the same issues, have you performed a full reset to factory defaults after flashing the latest firmware first? And, not using/inserting the USB drive you're using for amtm, during the test period?

Just happened , 386.7_2 just restarted my AX86U. Might have to roll back to 386.5 at this point. 5 days uptime.

Now had 14days (so far...) without reboot on my AXE11000, this a first time, by at least 7 days using ASUS code "FW_GT_AXE11000_300438649675". YIPPEE!! Now wishing (dreaming) for the @RMerlin variant (or later) of this release (probably 388 level) in months to come.
| 24days now as of 22:34 20Aug'22.

This makes no sense, Merlin's firmware uses 386_48966 GPL. This is very close to the release number you state.
From what I can see there would be only a minor difference and NOT affect this problem.

Merlin can you comment?

I don't think that's nearly long enough to start celebrating!
When I first got my AX86S, it ran for 31 days before it rebooted.

I have no idea what changed at the kernel level between these two GPL versions. If a specific fix is involved, then it wouldn`t require a much larget version jump to include it.

Can I just chime in. I have a TUF-AX3000. I have had a similar issue, came on the forums to try and find a solution, found nothing of interest, ASUS also told me to RMA....... not that it would help as it's clearly a software/driver issue.

I have solved my issues approx 99%. So I had kernal panics, modem freezes and rebooting, wifi drop outs etc. Now interesting fact .... alot of Telstra Modems here in Australia have been blue screening windows computers with incompatable wifi cards because ''Protected Frames'' was on.

So what I changed on mine which solved the majority of my issue was:

-Turned off WPA3 - Disabled Protected Frames
-Disabled All IP6 (anywhere I could find it) - apparently this helps with Linux issues.
-Disabled Traffic Analyser.
-Changed NAT Back From 'Full Cone' to 'Symmetric'
-TCP Adjustments (TCP Connections Limit to 100000, halfed all other settings) - Helps with Kernel Panic?

And then I had WIFI Compatability Issues. Again still working through these but I found actually turning off WIFI6 (160Hz) majorly helped me.

Hope some of this info helps someone.
