Upgrading RT-AC87U from Merlin 380.65_2 to the latest 384.13_10


Regular Contributor
Last time I upgraded the RT-AC87U was quite a few years ago.

In the last few months, the Wi-Fi connections of 5Ghz networks are very weak. The wired connections are fine. I have not moved the router, nor I added any furniture that may block the router.
I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the old firmware.

I would like to upgrade it to the newest possible firmware 384.13_10.
I presume I have to do a factory reset before the upgrade and after the upgrade enter all the settings manually?

I am also using jffs partition as I remember. I don't know if I need it but, in any case,, can I restore this partition from the backup?

Also can someone point me out to a link how to do the upgrade properly.
