    Has anyone ran into this before when i got up today
    i noticed some of my devices wernt connected to the 2.4ghz on my RT-AC88U ap

    after looking into it

    Odyssey (which runs on channel 1 + 5 WPA2 AES)

    Briefly shows up as Odyssey Open
    then Odywsey channel 5 + 9 WPA2 AES (Note the w)

    thinking it was maybe a config problem
    rebooted to the mini cfe webserver
    clearled nvram and flashed a fresh stock firmware

    Its doing exactly the same thing on a totally fresh firmware with nothing changed

    ASUS_70_2G then ASUW_70_2G alternating every few seconds

    im unable to connect to either ap's i presume as they are switching back and forth constantly

    i have factory reset it multiple times
    it makes no difference
    and have had to resort to disabling the 2.4ghz radio

    its an a5 revision btw
    my release rt-ac88u thats in router mode is working fine (think its a2)
