An RT-AC66U I purchased today lists its firmware version as 18.104.22.168.202. Yes I mean 202
This firmware is listed at RT-AC66R Downloads
as the initial firmware for the RT-AC66R, followed by 22.214.171.124.246 and 126.96.36.199.260.
Despite coming with RT-AC66R
firmware, the router box and the router itself claim it is an RT-AC66U
and it was not bought at a Best Buy (where RT-AC66Us are reportedly sold as RT-AC66Rs).
The Authentication Method
list that my router shows me under Wireless
looks like that described for the RT-AC66R
at the Asus web site when comparing the RT-AC66U to the RPT-AC66R. It includes Radius with 802.1x
, for example.
I don't know what to make of it.
The discussion in Asus RT-AC66R vs. RT-AC66U
Edit: I had initially searched for 188.8.131.52.202
and found little. Once I searched this forum for RT-AC66R I found a number of posts that explain this somewhat.
