This new firmware update out today is very broken. It has a problem connecting to any DNS, none of my devices will go live on the internet. I tried reinstalling the firmware multiple times. Nothing worked. Had to revert back to previous firmware. This one is very broken.
With the new firmware upgrade, upon successful upgrade, perform a hard factory reset with the following method;
after reset, reconfigure your router. Hope it help to resolve your error/problems.
new firmware that came out today Version 126.96.36.199.386.47629, works fine so far. Testing it out now. I thought the 5ghz band might be improved with this firmware but I guess it's a problem with the router design itself. I could be right up next to the router on the 5ghz band and it will go up and down max out at 700ish mbps on a 1.2gbps connection right next to the router on a iphone 13. If i travel back to my room I can get speeds lower than 50mbps on the 5ghz band. My old asus router had 300+mbps in the same room. The 2.4ghz band is rock solid though, has nice range (full bars), can get about 150mbps on all locations throughout my 2000sq home. Hopefully they can improve the 5ghz band one day, my old cheaper router AX5400 was superior at 5ghz but lacked the 2.5gbe wan/lan ports this router provides. The lan is solid so far, I can get 1.4gbps benchmark on a speed test with my comcast 1.2gbps plan. I will keep testing the new firmware and let you guys know if I find anything.
