Just came back from running tomato and asuswrt-merlin.
Just upgraded to the latest Kong build.
I am unable to overclock the router using the following commands.

nvram set clkfreq=1000,666
nvram commit
reboot

It reboots back to 800,666 no matter what I do.
On tomato and asuswrt-merlin works.
Is anyone else having issues with overclocking?
Any help?

overclocking can be performed from gui on the Administration page

In the init code for the AC68U there is a fixed clk set. I don't know the reason for it, but BS probably had one when he added this line.

Ive been running your builds on a 68u and over clocking to 1400,800 and am able to achieve about 60mbps down running openvpn client. Wonder why some versions of the 68u have issues holding clocks

Kong, can you remove the Init code you say BS added?
