thanks indeed for your help IONK. You had one extra line, the last, everything else was the same. I added it, it stuck on reboot but made no difference. Thanks anyway — think I've run out of ideas. The router will still be useful to me with only the 2.4GHz channel ... hope I have more luck with the next experiment - Wireguard client :-0

I'm new to dd-wrt (3 weeks ago). I happily read lots of guidelines and successfully flashed TP-Link WDR4300 and now D-Link DIR-868L. Remarkably fuss free, impressive software and helpful documentation, thank you. One glitch, for the DIR-868L the 5GHz band did not appear in the UI, instead there were 2 x 2.4GHz devices. I disabled the second device as it was invisible to clients (Windows and Android). I searched forum re D-Link for a while but didn't see anything obviously relevant. "Wireless" screenshot attached.

Same problem with the latest DD-WRT v3.0-r44251 std (08/27/20) firmware. Any luck on your side enabling the 5GHz?
