I recently upgraded DD-WRT on my DLink DIR-890L router, from a July, 2017 release, to the more recent r35531. Had some issues getting there (see topic 315606), but it seems to be running fine.

Except bandwidth... On the 2017 release, I was consistently getting approximately 900Mbs down. Following the upgrade to r35531, it's barely making 200Mbs. Ping times are also a bit higher. This is from a wired machine.

SFE is enabled; QoS is disabled. I'm not sure what else to look at, but I'd like to reclaim all my bandwidth.

Kernel is at v4.4, so it would seem that I should be good to go based on the details with this releases announcement.

Is there possibly an issue with this release, or should I try another one? As mentioned, I had quite a time getting to r35531, so I'm a bit hesitant to start again, but will gladly do so if there's a better release I should be running.

Did you erase nvram per Malachi in that thread? (`erase nvram` is the command from telnet). If that doesn't help after manual setup, try 36168.

Yes, nvram was erased. Should I attempt it again?

You mention ‘manual setup.’ Are you referring to a command line, SSH/telnet upgrade vs a GUI one?

I will attempt the version you mention. I see that r36247 released just today. Should I go for that one?

He means you should do the `erase nvram` again, reboot, and manually re-configure via the WebGUI and see if things change. Upgrading to r36168 seems to be a safe bet right now, if doing that doesn't help.
