The last build before experimental WiFi changes is 11/03/2020 - r44715 (R7800 is r44719 when installed).

Look at Atheros WiSOC based Hardware subforum index to see "new build" threads for info & feedback.

well for me it is not so stable

Since switching to the "custom" firmware I have the problem that the throughput drops dramatically when my Nintendo switch reconnects from deep sleep

Restart WLAN while the switch is in deep sleep
then I start an iperf3 speed test (QCA9984 <-> QCA9984) with 750Mbit

as soon as the switch connects the throughput drops to 250-500Mbit


and this with QCA9984 and 4x4

With the Netgear stock firmware I have 1Gbit throughput in both directions
And with the old kvalo based dd-wrt firmware (r44719) I don't have any speed drops when the switch connects ( 0 nothing)

Does it have a Broadcom chip? Turn off Muliti User Beamforming. Brodcom clients go down to 1:1 when its on.

I had never activated Multi User Beamforming before

yes and seems to be a broadcom chip

there is not much more to test, I've been testing it for a week now

as said before with kvalo's firmware or with r44719 everything is ok

Hello does anyone know whether there is a firmware release notes or a published sha256 or m5 sum for the r7800 most recent release ie June 2021. If not can someone confirm it ?


Router : Netgear X4s (R7800).

File:

https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2021/06-28-2021-r47000/netgear-r7800/dd-wrt-webupgrade.bin

SHA256:

7dece0baa5fa0bb5cfc8ad1b745f3b98fd74fdeac0fdd2500fea28af7176676b


Can someone confirm this ?

Is it possible to suggest adding signature to release notes.



Thanks.

To verify the download isn't corrupt I download the file twice, the 2nd one is renamed and I do a Binary File Compare to make sure the download is fine for use.

No hashes are created by the developer to be used to verify downloads, this is *not* new news. The release notes are in the build release threads, which is where you should be looking to find out any information.
