Asus TUF AX4200 support

I am using mine for about 1-2 weeks, all is good, I have it with 1gb fiber pppoe, no hardware nat, with sqm and crowdsec firewall bouncer, all works wonderfull.

As for the wireless, mine did not have slowness, or not that i was aware of, and i work from my laptop exclusively over wifi, my gf does the same, and we have a android tv that runs 4k content continuously, all goes well, at once

I am very happy about this router, i don't regret not get the bpi r3 anymore :smiley:

It turned out that the problem is with my PC system, I have Linux Mint, the latest LMDE 6.
After quickly installing Windows 11, the problem has not occurred yet. Sorry for causing confusion.
Both with and without Wi-Fi roaming, everything works on the ax 4200.
I must admit that I have never experienced anything like this.

Can someone with this router TUF-AX4200 on OpenWRT confirm what is the maximum internet speed you managed to get?

Asking because I have a problem with AX6000 not able to get more than 30Mbps wan on Ethernet cabls, and 400Mbps on Wifi (on 1Gbps wan).

The hardware is almost the same, thus the question. Most likely Iā€™m experiencing a poor NAT performance (with very low cpu load + irq balance).

A short follow up: my problems with AX6000 stopped after the latest snapshot, so it works as stable as AX4200. As far as I can tell, the router is stable so far.

I'm using two TUF AX4200 in WDS mode on the 5 GHz radio (client, AP) both running openwrt 23.05. The AP additionally runs a 2.4 GHz network for my phone/laptop/other devices.

They both have been running very stable; uptime ~25 days.

Hello,

thanks remittor for installing via GUI.
Is this a safe solution? Because Openwrt has not updated its page concerning the installation, we only see the procedure via TFTP.

Hi, I've just installed Openwrt 23.05.2 on my new Tuf-AX4200 and I'm having a problem with the eth1 device disconnecting unexpectedly.

mtk_soc_eth 15100000.ethernet eth1: Link is Down

I didn't have this behavior on my previous Openwrt router.
I've tried to replace the cable but with no more success.
I have activated debug logs on netifd but I have no more info.
Have any of you had this kind of problem?

Thanks @remittor, I think, you have identified the problem. I'm no longer experiencing outages with a 100Mb connection.
It's a bit limiting as my Internet link is more around 1Gb but it'll do until a fix is found.
Do you have an idea ?

Please replace ethernet cable and check again.

I tried with 3 different cables without more success. Do you think it could be a hardware issue ?

Thank you very much, it worked flawlessly with your initramfs.trx and the official squashfs-sysupgrade.bin, which excludes your application installs. I hope this can be the standard install on the AX4200s wiki page. This might be one of the easiest and best OpenWRT routers.

No, its software. (OpenWRT)
Restore factory FW!
Wifi OK, but UTP lags, freezes.
PC: J3455-ITX

Real observation.

I tried to restore factory firmware and then to flash again OpenWrt. I tried 23.05.0 and 23.05.2 but same result.
I think i will open a ticket on github.

I can confirm that TRX (software) method of installing OpenWrt was working fine on ASUS TUF-AX6000. Both routers are using the same SoC.

Just make sure you are using the correct (latest) trx file for your router. For less efforts, it's recommended to set up internet access on the stock firmware first, otherwise you might have to manually upload luci and fix network settings yourself.

@remittor thank you for your instalation method via trx on TUF-AX4200. Works perfectly.
