Hi,

I feel that this likely a common question, but couldn't find an answer after some searching. I have two devices that I can't seem to connect to wifi after flashing to DD-WRT. They previously worked.

Firmware is the latest stable Kong build (2018) running on R7000.

Devices that I can't get to connect are:
Logitech Circle 2
Intesis home ISIRWIFI1

I've read that it might be wifi channel, or security protocol, or something else, but can't seem to get started in terms of troubleshooting.

If anyone has ideas, or needs more details for specs, please let me know.

Try disabling wifi security briefly (or else create a temporary VAP w/ no security) and see if they now connect. The idea is to see if the problem is the choice of security settings, or something else entirely.

I disabled the security and it made no difference. Is there a next step you could suggest?

If these devices have a wired option, try it instead. We just need to narrow down the culprit.
