What router? You keep posting information that is lacking specifics. Refer to the forum rules and guidelines. Fair warning, your posts will start disappearing if you cannot provide all specific applicable information as it is a disservice to the community. Flash and report in the build threads like we expect you to.

Guys, this thread is not for reporting issues with any particular build with [missing router info and setup here]. Please report these kind of things on the relevant [SoC type]>[build number] thread.

Please let's focus on which build one would recommend to a fellow with a similar gear and scenario like ours.

General use:
Broadcom devices with K3.x: DD-WRT v3.0-r41321 mega (10/14/19) [Linksys E1200v2]

I've tried several newer builds up to 44538 and every one of them causes the router to bog down and need a reboot after a few weeks of uptime. It acts as though the memory gets full or something. With 41321 it just keeps running and I can just forget about it. I plan to try 45955 or newer as recommended by kernel-panic69 though, when I have a few spare hours.

Follow-up: the 45955 build was working well until yesterday when my router suddenly died. No lights come on or anything. No fault of DD-WRT, it was just old and finally quit working. Oh, well, I got my money's worth out of it as I've had it for almost 10 years.

If a Router has WiFi enabled, I would NOT use any build below 05/13/2021 - r46640 since this build introduced fixes to the CVE-2020-26147, CVE-2020-24586, CVE-2020-24587, & CVE-2020-24588 Fragattack.

My signature during this post...

Home Network on Telus PureFibre - 10GbE Copper Backbone
2x R7800 - Gateway & WiFi & 3xWireGuard - DDWRT r47033 Std
R7000 - Wired ISP 4K IPTV Gateway - DDWRT r47033 Std
Off Site 1
R7000 - Gateway & WiFi & WireGuard - DDWRT r47033 Std
E3000 - Client Bridge - DDWRT r46979 Mega K4.4
Off Site 2
R7000 - Gateway & WiFi - DDWRT r44483 Std
E2000 - Wired ISP IPTV PVR Blocker - DDWRT r35531


It shows WiFi Routers with builds above r46640. Internal Routers with Wifi disabled can use any build.

My Gateway Router with or without WiFi are using r47033. Offsite#2 will be updated from the old r44483 once I'm given time swap out the router and update the ethernet cabling. This site needs a strong 2.4Ghz signal and wasn't happy with builds over r46640 until I installed r47033 on a spare R7000 to test in my home. I did tweak the wl0 2.4Ghz radio setting to...

Wireless Network Mode: NG-Mixed
Wireless Channel (pick your best channel 1,6 or 11)
Channel Width: 20Mhz
TurboQAM256: Enabled
Explicit Beamforming: Disabled
Implicit Beamforming: Enable
Airtime Fairness: Disabled
Sensitivity Range: 1800

Basic Rate: Default
Transmission Fixed Rate: Auto
CTS Protection: Auto
Frame Burst: Disable
Beacon: (I use 107 if a problem stick with 100 or 200)
DTIM: 1
Frag Threshold: 784
RTS Threshold: 784
Preamble: short
Shortslot Override: short
TX Power: Manual 499
Bluetooth Coex: Disable

This thread is for recommending builds that are not shown in the router database or Peacock Thread. So, anything NOT listed on either resource should be recommended here.
