    hi, running 32799 on my rt-ac86u

    after a while , a day or 2 or something, i am not able to pin my devices anymore in the other wifi band
    so if i am in 5 ghz, i can ping the wifi devices in 2.4 and vica versa

    devices are all still online though

    if i reboot the router, its working again for a day or 2

    alreay tried a factory reset

    any1 else experiencing this also ?

    I experience this as well on my AC 3100, stock firmware ( and Merlin's ). Only way I've been able to avoid it is turning off Airtime Fairness and possibly turning off MIMO for both 2.5 and 5GHZ.
