How old the fiber modem?
If u r using Unifi ask them change the fiber modem for free problem solved.

And connect to wire or 5G WiFi only can use full speed.

try disabling QoS, enable NAT acceleration.

Also check BTU connection to router, make sure it is gigabit, some BTU model only providing 100Mbps.

@capiche Any chances of pictures being captured?

Apologies for the late reply. Extremely busy with work.

Unfortunately everything was done in a rush, so didnt manage to capture photo.
In general, you'll just need to remove the heatsink (front, back) then cut the heatpad to size.

I also agak-agak only. But you may use previous measurement as a guideline.

To report back, below is the stats:
2.4G - 46 degC
5G - 50 degC
CPU - 59 degC
Ambient - 30 degC

FW: Merlin 384.19

You might want to flash the beta firmware for now
Version 9.0.0.4.386.41994 Beta Version
https://www.asus.com/my/Networking-IoT-Serv.../HelpDesk_BIOS/
QUOTE
Security Fixed:
Fixed CVE-2020-25681, CVE-2020-25682, CVE-2020-25683, CVE-2020-25687, CVE-2020-25684, CVE-2020-25685, CVE-2020-25686

Please be noted this is a quick fix beta version for DNSmasq vulnerabilities. Refer to "Method 2: Update Manually" in https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1008000 to update this firmware.


https://kb.cert.org/vuls/id/434904
QUOTE
Dnsmasq is vulnerable to a set of memory corruption issues handling DNSSEC data and a second set of issues validating DNS responses. These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to corrupt memory on a vulnerable system and perform cache poisoning attacks against a vulnerable environment.

The memory corruption vulnerabilities can be triggered by a remote attacker using crafted DNS responses that can lead to denial of service, information exposure, and potentially remote code execution. The DNS response validation vulnerabilities allow an attacker to use unsolicited DNS responses to poison the DNS cache and redirect users to arbitrary sites.

Not sure, I'm trying merlin firmware now.
You can save the router settings before flash the firmware, if not stable then flash back the old firmware and then restore it's settings.

Need Help! Anybody knows which version of latest firmware is the most STABLE for Aimesh on ac86u twin unit.? Asus original firmware or Merlin? Currently using 3.0.0.4.384_82072. From time to time still need to manual restart both routers.
