I just received my new (used) r9000! Ddwrt 46316 loaded up with zero fuss and everything is working fine so far. One of the antennas was broken (severed coax leads) but that will be a simple fix (Hirose u.fl-lp cable assemblies and a good soldering station).

There’s two leds on the unit which I don’t exactly understand.

Guest WiFi: The stock netgear firmware has settings for this, but does ddwrt do anything? Is this some sort of 3rd radio? I know how to setup a guest WiFi using ddwrt, but that doesn’t control this led does it?

60ghz: even with the wlan2 disabled, this led us always lit. Is there something else needed to turn the led off?

Thanks,

The back of the router has a dedicated switch to turn off all LED's except for the PWR LED.

That's funny, I can't coerce mine to turn on. heh.
Not that it matters since all Wifi is off on this gateway.
