I have been having a problem with my ASUS RT 3200 for some time now, where it keeps randomly crashing. Every time I am able, I report the problem (even though it appears to always be the name kernel null pointer issue.) Finally, after suffering for 2 years or more, it appears they might have a fix. (I won’t know for some time, because the randomness means it happened approximately once a week, but I won’t feel it’s fixed until I go a couple of months without it happening again.)
Anyway, I thought I would bring up the topic to remind you all to check your router firmware once and a while. (Maybe put a repeating reminder in your phone or something if it doesn’t come naturally.) You never know when you might have a security fix you didn’t know you need. (Hopefully you buy from a manufacturer who supports their products for a number of years, or better for a decade or so.)
As a service to other owners of this router (I believe @Leo used to regularly recommend it) here’s a link to the download page:
The “Fixed null pointer issue” is the one I am hopeful addresses my issue.
Looks like RT-AC5300 (which I think @MacPhyle has) also has recent fixes, just not the same ones:
