|Discovered a strange problem with new builds and the 1900 V1 running WDS Station.
I am running r40009 on most of my routers and tried to use WDS for better monitoring on my master. My 3200's work without problem but I could not get the 1900 V1 remote working with WDS.
If I don't activate the 2.4Ghz band (am using 5Ghz for WDS) the connection is established and functions correctly, however when I activate the 2.4Ghz to connect my remote cameras and devices the connection fails and won't connect.
I backed the build off to r35898 and all is well.
I tried the latest build r40634 but the results were the same as with r40009.
This effect is only on the remote as my masters are still on r40009 and only with my 1900 v1. Have not tried to see if the same effect is with the 1200, but I suspect it may also have the problem.
Edit: Tried r40672 , same results
