Run on EA8500.
Only last about one day and then wifi started dropping, both on 2.4G and 5G. Rolled back to 33772.
r33772 is a good build on that unit but just wondering if you done a reset & reconfig after installing a recent build??? ... that would probably be a good ideal ---
--- much has changed since 2017.
On the EA8500 I'm still using:
DD-WRT v3.0-r37495M kongat 10/25/18
Linux 4.9.135 #253 SMP PREEMPT Thu Oct 25 02:05:21 CEST 2018 armv7l
uptime 13 days, 11:42
VAPs on both radio
VLAN on port 4
QOS HFSC FQ_CODEL
some stuff in 'Port Range Forwarding'
30 static leases
turned unbound off couple days ago just because without using 'Recursive DNS Resolving'
I can now also use local DNS while connected to its ovpn server.
Using QUAD9 public DNS and they do DNSSEC anyways.
tis all been good

5G has disappeared. It says that its enabled and working within DD-WRT. But, my phone that was set up to connect to it previously says that it's not in range (sitting 3 feet away from router).
i had problem when i was setting AC to high channels and LL control channel, only 161 was working well, all the others were bugged. But it was showing ukinown channel on status page!
the way to fix the "unknown" in the 5g wifi status is to reinstall and reset (click reset when upgrading) from scratch. Setup as normal. Some reason recently I found after everything setup and working if I make a change to any of the wireless setting (example - change wifi password) it will put "unknown" in wifi channel on 5g and it will stop working. This is happening on current kong 4.9.135 build on r7800. YMMV _________________ Router/Version: Netgear 7800
