Hey all, sorry am late for the new firmware party. I did post earlier in this thread and my GT5300 has been a full brick for a couple months now, sitting on a shelf with hopes to perhaps work again.

Reflashed with this latest firmware (45708) as have absolutely nothing to loose. Sad to report, no change. I do have the US\North american version of the router.

After a couple reboots (post flash advising of recovered), on the Power light and the 2 wifi lights illuminate. The network light then lights (briefly) and it appears to reboot itself (same as before).

I will continue to monitor this forum and test anything that comes along to help in everybodys hopes.

I suggest just move on, this support team simply has no urgency to repair a terrible product.

Good luck to each and everyone of you.

fyi, another version of the firmware was posted to other routers like the AC68U.

Hehehe, well of course. It is stable. No wifi changes regarding bad wifi signal sometimes. I will test it now thoroughly 80084

Tks Stefan.

I've had (as with most folks here) such a truly miriad of random issues with past firmwares that , while the current firmware is far from perfect, I was able to set it in a semi stable manner ...
So if you already took the plunge ... Please let us know how it goes... 🙂

Everything is fine till now. No more odd system logs. WiFi signal is stable now, steady signal. I have noticed better NAS performance also.

Just flashed the FW v45713. It may have corrected some of the brick. It appears to stay powered on, the power and 2x wifi LEDs stay on. If I plug in the internet, that LED flashes intermittently. Not continually rebooting any longer.

Still cannot access the GUI nor will it reply to PING though.

If anybody knows of a junk yard reboot procedure, I'd be happy to try and report back.

I get these every day in the LOG:

Its OK?

I've just flashed my GT-AC5300 to and the process also updated an RT-AC86U to* which is connected via wifi backhaul in AIMesh. That access point has been dropping out so will see what happens going forward.
