That said, Covid-19 has really put the hurt on all routers online and ebay dea ...

1st thing:
The Ethernet link light is now blinking furiously on both Arris TM822g modem and wrt610n even if all the ethernet ports are empty and wireless is turned off.

I guess the good news is that you didn't brick it...
Builds newer than 43136 have been called out by Kernel Panic to brick these old routers...Maybe only on K2.6 only...

Try the K2.4 builds first. ...

you're not getting a D.o.S. attack, something on your LAN has bursty traffic and most likely several devices at the same time... none of it makes any sense because the ports on that router are only 1g ...

Thanks msoengineer, I've moved out to 161 UU and the performance is the same (but perhaps with longer range, as you point out).

Changing the TX power setting knocks the throughput down to 6MBit/s, ...

you're using DFS spectrum and it forces lower TX pwr... switch to 161+UU
then on the WL1 advanced tab (s/b the 5ghz radio tab...) set the tx pwr to 999 to set to the full 30dBm allowed tx pwr. Also m ...

Is regulatory mode turned off? it should be off
Is TCP Mitigation turned off? it should be off

Wireless mode is AC/N-Mixed?
Are you using VHT80?

Do you think it's a good deal if I get a new one for around $60? Thanks!

They sell new in the usa anywhere from $40-$60 on amazon directly.
Check ebay too... but this is not a great router if you ...

I believe the Dir-632 has 8MB of flash. But I don't understand why it ever worked if I have to have 32MB.

As the firmware gets updates it grows in size, at some point BS decides to deprecate featur ...

Are you doing custom vlans?

I would remove all spaces between sections in your dnsmasq window.

Perhaps you have other nvram gremlins and need to nvram re ...
