    To be honest, this doesn't work for me. I had RT-N66U on 3.0.0.4.260 firmware, did press Check to check for newer firmware, says "it's on the latest version". Checking download page, and i see that the current non-beta firmware version is 3.0.0.4.372.1393. So the notification doesn't really work :D.

    Exactly the opposite for me, I had an update ready for my RT-AC66U very soon after this story broke. Asus tend to be quite regular with firmware updates, and Merlin's customisations means that I have no need to switch to DD-WRT.

    That would be because ASUS work closely with DD-WRT & OpenWRT to create their firmware from what I hear. In fact the original ASUS router shipped with DD-WRT firmware included ;)

    Ah that would explain a lot! Tbh, I think these open source router firmwares are so good that others should just follow Asus's lead and build off them too.
