I've attempted a few newer builds up to 44538, and they all cause the router to slow down and need a reboot after a few weeks of use. It's as if the memory is getting full or something.
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. _________________ If you want support, please read first the announcements and forum rules.

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.
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...
