Anyone know if the next BE98 Pro firmware upgrade is going to enable support for WiFi 7 MLO?

The Windows Insider forum has just released a new build which includes support for WiFi 7.  In order to see those options, a compatible system is necessary, so a new firmware is required to make the BE98 Pro compatible.  It would be helpful, if even a Beta version could be made available.

Thanks for reading.

Samsung S24 Ultra still has issues. Connects and then after 1-2 mins, it says connected without internet. I only tested is for 30 mins and in that 3-4 times it did that. I might suggest doing a full factory reset and manually re setting it up. Do not recover from backup.

After I updated my BE-98 Pro to firmware "3.0.0.6.102_34491-ge5d05d6_621-g39ad8_BA08" it would not connect properly to the WAN. I had to re-apply the "Primary Wan" settings under "http://www.asusrouter.com/Advanced_WANPort_Content.asp"

I picked up a Wi-Fi 7 enabled motherboard and intend on testing the capabilities. I will report back...

@crashworldtk   If you find, or can't find anything, let us know.  I have been running the advanced Windows build which has support for Wi-Fi 7.

Good news for all GT-BE98 PRO owners. Eric is going to release RMerlin  builds soon 🙂

That's good news, the only thing is it voids your warranty correct?

No, warranty will be  there if you restore factory firmware. But no technical support.
