I have had a couple of router rebootes just out of the blue the last days.
Now the router rebooted again a couple of hours ago. My signal strength on the 5 GHz is -27 dbm and on the 2.4 GHz -19dbm, I can connect with 300 Mbps on my laptop now. Very strange behaviuor but as this a Beta stability is not the best.
Update : I have had the unit up for nearly 4 days now without any sudden re-boots, I have adjusted the Tx power on the 5 Ghz band to 70 mW , the 2.4 Ghz band is 75 mW.
Still have problems with connectiion speed to my laptop , most of the time 108 Mbps , someteimes 162 Mps and very rarely 300 Mbps.
Will wait for the next sudden re-boot and then update the f/w to .270.

from before 22.214.171.124 (r341183) .
Now I will test if this new driver is giving better signal strength stability and connection speed.
Update : have been up now for more than 12 hours , the Asus USB-N53 canĘt have a connection speed higher than 108 Mbps steadily ,
have it connected on the 5 GHz - band. The trougput is better than before , signal strength -25 dbm but on the 2.4 Ghz band I have a signal strength of -15 dbm.
inSSider shows a stable signal strenth on the 5 GHz band. A part seems to ve solved with the new drivers but the connect spped NOT.
Update 2 : Got an answer from Asus about the Beta firmware , first answer was that it was the same drivers as befiore , when I pointed out the that the drivers version was not
the same I got the following answer :
After double-checking, the BETA firmware does contain new drivers but they are no official release as we are still tweaking it for stability.
So there are still stability problems with the drivers. I just wonder how long we are supposed to wait for a solution ?
