This is strange. There is no change log for this version. I am staying with Merlin's 266.23b-dw version for now.

I am testing the Beta 3.0.0.4.321 so perhaps someone else is willing to try this firmware. I wonder why Asus has not written any change log for this one ?

In for a penny, in for a pound. I just upgraded mine from .266; we'll see what happens.

Recently I suspect Asus changed the way they publish updates. The same thing happened to the RT-N56U, where the update appeared on the website, but the changelog was only added a day or two later.

And before someone asks... I don't know either what's changed, the GPL code usually takes a few more days before being available. I suspect it's just an interim update, while they still work on implementing the new wireless driver in the 3.0.0.4.3xx branch.

One thing that probably works in this build is the support for using your tethered phone as if it was a 3G modem. That was already working (but unannounced as they were still working on it) a few versions back, I suspect it will make an official debut in this build.

Does this mean that parental controls will now cut internet connection to already running applications like games and Skype as well?

Because that's the main flaw for me right now, that the router allows certain types of connections to continue to run, despite passing the set time frame (with firmware 3.0.0.4.260).
