Beta Custom Firmware & Setup for UniFi  (Also confirmed for SingTel's exStream !!)


The beta firmware is from ASUS which I've assisted in testing based on my Huawei HG850a and to provide feedback to their engineer team accordingly.

You are advised to read, fully understand and follow the exact steps before starting to email me.  Should there be any problem encounter which I'm able to duplicate the same issue, I'll do my best to forward to ASUS engineer for further investigation.

Please note I don't own the firmware and I don't sell the product either, you buy and flash at your own risk.
