    A little moan .

    Ok, so I bend over backwards encouraging ASUS to try to support legacy products, as in this day an age, when we are in such a throwaway society and some of us are not as wealthy as others, alas somebody whom visited this forum has then complained to ASUS that if a product reaches its end of Life (EOL) why is firmware still available…….

    As a result, ASUS have now decided to no longer support the DSL-N66U and others are to follow shortly.

    Moan over ……….

    Sorry dont understand anything.

    For most devices (PC, laptop and whatsoever except chinese junk) you can download firmware for many years after EoL – thats part of the game called service!

    Often you will never get any update, but possible to download initial drivers and firmware.

    ASUS (DSL)  are saying no ‘New’ firmware’s for the above models will be available, Firmware (not Beta’s) will still be available for EOL products, but no new Firmware will be created/available.

    Support reference is in terms of an owners raising a helpdesk call and complaining that firmware’s does not perform as expected for an EOL product,  ;-)

    The arrogance of some people, beta is a beta. It might work 100% or maybe not. This day and age with early accesses and all, people should know the meaning of beta already. I guess I have to start shopping a replacement for my N66U then. Can I bill the caller with 150-200 €

    And many others also effected, a lot of ASUS EOL units are now going to be effected, but at least I now know it was not you that made the call

    Butterfly effect

    Just noticed a bunch of “New reply for Latest Beta Firmwares…” emails in my inbox and thought “Yay, update time”… and then I opened the thread

    My DSL-N55U_C1 isn’t actually listed, but I assume it will be soon. I’m just grateful for the updates that were made available up until now, thank you UK Sentinel.

    I will ask ASUS, how do you know 5.9.2.23 is available ? is this for specific ASUS (MediaTeK) model ?

    I see, 5.9.2.23 relates to FwVer, the picture makes it look like xDSL / FwVer and HwVer are three different releases, and no value for xDSLFwVersion ? I assume xDSLFwVersion consists of FwVer and HwVer in the Zyxel world.

    Do you know if the Zyxel vmg1312-t20b uses a MediaTeK DSL chipset ? as they seem to be generally Broadcom based ?

    Update: found a video online showing the circuit board of the Zyxel vmg1312-t20b – which has a MediaTeK MT7592N

    As an update, ASUS routers (DSL-N17U) use the MT7511 DSL chipset.

    The ZyXEL VMG1312 T20b uses the MT7592N and the ASUS DSL-AC51 also uses the MT7511 DSL chipset

    So different chipsets used by ASUS and Zyxel, hence why different DSL driver versions

    I am using n16 with 5.5.2.11 too much crc errors and bad stability. 5.9.2.23 much better. It would be great if you could report it to Asus
