  1. Hi Global version don’t have 2.4Ghz amplifiers only 5Ghz that is why you can’t flash chinese firmware on global and vice versa.

  2. It helps so much !!!
    Thanks a lot Roman.
    I m going to buy this chinese version very soon (and if I choose a vendor that you put on your website, I will go obviously through your link) 😉
    Take Care !

  3. Hi, do you know if it’s possible to flash the Chinese AX3 Pro variant with the global firmware? I purchased the Chinese version before the global version was released and wondering if there are any differences in hardware that would prevent this from working?

    1. Since there is no official global firmware file available on the internet, I have seen some non-official ones. However, most of them will have firmware issues.
      1. Some will refuse to flash the firmware
      2. Some features will be cut of in the non official firmware

      So, I recommend using the Chinese version of it. You can use Google chrome’s translate feature to translate the webpage and the translated page isn’t that bad at all.

      1. Agreed, it’s just a minor nuisance, I can live with it. The benefits far outweigh the negatives. The range on this little thing is pretty incredible compared with my Linksys wrt1900acs (not to mention less than half the price!)

        I really hope future firmware updates bring us OpenVPN capabilities, then I can finally ditch the Linksys for good.

      2. Hi Roman. Thanks for this article. Do you know if there are other differences between chinese ans global version except the language ? I read the chinese version would miss some bands (wifi channels) that we use in France (Europe). Thanks for your help.
        PS : I m asking that cause if it’s only different for thé language , I will but the chinese one which is cheaper.

        1. Hi Matheoh!
          There’s no difference in Chinese and Global versions apart from the language and package labeling/user manual. The features and bands are all the same. However, you won’t be able to change the region in the Chinese one from ‘China Mainland’ to any other. Yes, the Chinese version is a lot cheaper. I suggest buying the Chinese version. You can always translate the page with Google translate and the translation isn’t that bad. As for the global ROM, we might have that soon. There are some unofficial ones as well (but not that good and experience problems). So it’s better to use the Chinese version, until the official Global ROM is available on the internet.
          I hope this helps.
