So, I have a problem where if I flash any DD-WRT build past 39296, I have one of a few problems arise. It's usually only one of these issues, depending on what version I flash. Sometimes it's two, however that's limited to when number 3 happens. This is confusing to me, and I would like to get an understanding of this if possible.
1. The wireless will cut in and out.
2. Two devices on my network will no longer connect, the specific devices are an AT&T micorcell and an access point I have in another room.
3. IPv6 won't connect.
4. The Internet connection will drop in and out.
This happens with a dirty update, clean update, clean update with 30-30-30, and restoring the factory firmware and then flashing back to DD-WRT. I have also tried disconnecting everything except my PC, updating the firmware, re-configuring the router, and then re-connecting things one by one starting with the Internet gateway.
I NEVER restore the configuration backup unless it's for the same version firmware.
I take the time to go through and manually configure the settings when trying to update with a clean update.
About my setup and configuration :
I have AT&T Uverse. The gateway is set up as close as possible to bridge mode and then connects to the router's WAN port.
I have it configured like so -
Connection type - Automatic DHCP
openDNS as static DNS
IPv6 is enables with prefix delegation.
DDNS is configured to update through dnsomatic.com for opendns.
Both wireless interfaces are configured with WPA2 AES
I have a virtual wireless interface for original my Nintendo DS connection. It's broadcast is disabled, has WEP security, and MAC filtering to only allow my DS.
It also has AP isolation.
I have a static IP address for most of my devices, reaching a number of 22 reserved addresses.
I only have the following options enabled :
ARP Spoofing Protection
Limit SSH access
Limit Telnet Access
All VPN passthrough
I have a selection of ports being forwarded as well as UPnP.
(Gaming on multiple systems on the same network.)
Any ideas as to what the issue might be?
If you need any more information, just ask.
That file is from the private alpha test build repo. He's being nice and sharing it with you.
Uhm, does all of your network and electronics plug into the same place? Do you not use surge suppressors with 4-6 outlets?
I was unaware of that, thank you.
I do use surge suppressors, however my main area for computer stuff has ten outlets being used. My secondary location uses eleven. Both locations have transformer plugs, so any unused outlet is blocked.

separating wpa2/3 and wep on a vap is fine, its like any other vap. perhaps have 2.4ghz on "mixed" to enable 802.11b rates cause ds/ds lite has junk 802.11b only. dsi and above brings 802.11g. _________________ LATEST FIRMWARE(S)
we just do it since we do not like any restrictions enforced by stupid cocaine snorting managers
