Installed factory-to-ddwrt using IE from Linksys partition on WRT3200ACM and no reset, no issues. OpenVPN server working and wireless devices connected fine. _________________ Linksys WRT3200ACM DD-WRT Version: r37932 OpenVPN server

Being the stubborn old fart I am I can't give up on a problem.
This time I swapped my two 3200's, reset to factory, installed Lynksys software, reset again to factory, then upgraded to 37908.
I re-entered all my settings from scratch with the exception of my 99 static list which I loaded using Telnet and my Port Forwards. I checked for Internet connection after each step by executing a reboot. All went well until I loaded my Port Forwards at which point my WAN would no longer connect.
I had to go through complete reset procedure again and re-enter all my settings to get back to full operation. This time I entered a couple of my Port Forwards manually and all went well.
Not sure if the 5Ghz problem is also corrected but after 16 hrs. everything is stable. I do hope that I don't have to note tomorrow about the 5Ghz dying, but I guess that will just give me another challenge to fix.
I was able to swap back the two 3200's using the config files created by my efforts without problem, so I can only assume that my port forward configuration was somehow corrupt as all seems good now. _________________ WRT3200acm Master WDS AP r37932

Result: 5GHz Channel "Unknown" initially. Checked Wifi security settings and saw that some options that were previously available are no longer available. Clicked "Apply" on 5GHz connection security settings, and the channel began broadcasting again.

After about 10-20 minutes of Chrome saying
Just wondering, have you tried the install with IE? Chrome and FireFox seems to give some folks problems. I quit using Chrome for installs because it gave me problems and now I always use IE. _________________ Linksys WRT3200ACM DD-WRT Version: r37932 OpenVPN server

Addblocking via DNS works, didnt work for me with version r37882.
You mean Privoxy under Services>Adblocking? Or the AdGuard menu selection under "Encrypt DNS" in Services>Services>DNSMasq? Or you entered the IP of an ad-blocking DNS server under Static DNS in the Setup>BasicSetup page? What is it that now works that did not work before? _________________ Running r37736 on a Linksys (Marvell) WRT1900ACSv2.
