Router/Version: Asus RT-AC3100
File/Kernel: asus_rt-ac3100-firmware.trx (exp)/Linux 4.4.229 #459 SMP Fri Jul 3 08:13:55 +04 2020 armv7l
Previous/Reset: 43652/No (upgraded via Web UI)
Mode/Status: NAT, AP, Wireguard Client VPN (site-site), No DHCP/DNS
Issues/Errors: Upgrade to 43718 bricked router
Had to use Asus Recovery utility to reload 43652. When it did, it restored configuration so router started working again as configured prior to upgrade. As router is heavily used, I will wait until next release to retry upgrading.
My router is an AC68U setup as a repeater (not repeater bridge) with vpn for use with public wifi with no encryption. 5ghz physical interface is set to repeater with virtual interfaces on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
The other wlconf startup scripts fixed 2.4ghz virtual but 5ghz virtual remained problematic. I'm surprised something like this hasn't been patched yet.

Many thanks to BS and those who run this forum for all the hard work you all put in!
if is not asking to much can u tell if the SAMBA is working in your RT-AC68U.
If anyone has this model of router, can also comment on the matter of samba, I will be grateful since I`m holding on v3.0-r43136 std (05/13/20) due the instability of SAMBA in post firmware`s released.
It appears to be working in my limited quick test. (r43800, 07/14/2020 version) However this is the first time I've plugged in a USB stick to test it, but I was able to access the share I setup from a wired client with a username/password. _________________ ASUS RT-AC68U (R/AP) Fork 374.43_44EAj9527 (Merlin Fork)

I flashed the kong build as you sugguested, did an nvram erase, setup the wifi, upgraded to the later DD-WRT without doing a reset or erase and I although the channels are listed I can't get it to turn on the radio on these channels. The only channel that will come up are the ones that are listed if I hadn't done it this way so it seems to do no good doing it this way.
I'm wondering if maybe my R7000p is a different hardware version than others and that is why I'm having issue with the 5G?
I'd be happy to run whatever commands to get you the information, I can even open it if that helps.
It would be really nice if the 5Ghz worked with the later builds if there is a way to fix it.
