Router/Version: WRT1900ACS V2
Previous/Reset: r44048, garbage with 44048 settings, reset fixed it
Mode/Status: AP, most settings default
Works with iPhones, an iPad mini, laptops, a million smart plugs, nests, streaming devices...
Issues/Errors: Status->LAN->Active Clients table rows are uneven and don't line up very well - I can deal with wifi drops, but this makes it totally unusable!
No working issues, but I restored from a backup after making a mess of the VPN settings and it didn't go as planned. I ended up getting a Restore Factory Defaults and had to start over. I've been saving copies of nvram show to track changes and to set some of the settings back using ssh. By comparing a recent nvram show and to the new empty one, I was able to get it set up relatively quickly. Is there a problem with the firmware or could the backup be the issue? Is there any way to know without running a bunch of restores and manual/nvram rebuilds? Should a restored backup work, or is it a known issue?
It depends on what build your backup is from; some nvram variables have changed over time.
I did a clean install with 47822 a month ago and didn't use anything from an older build. In fact, this was the first build I have tried since 44048, so I didn't even try to use an old backup. The one I used was only a couple of days old and I made it just before I started experimenting with WireGuard. If this isn't the right place for this, let me know and I'll break it out to its own topic.
Does adding settings back using nvram set count as manual? Here's what I have so far. I'll be doing WireGuard again at some point.

Can you tell me how to set wan_dns and wlan0_maclist with more than one value?
This is my first time using DD-WRT. I still have a factory partition. I initially set up DD-WRT without VPN, then setup the OpenVPN client.
Wired and wireless connectivity has been stable on all of my devices
- Apple (iphones/macbook)
- Sony and Vizio televisions
- Assorted Win10/11 laptops and desktops (Acer, Dell, generic)
- 2.4GHz and 5GHz (2 SSIDs for each)
- No vpn, and global vpn with killswitch both work
Throughput is significantly reduced (50%) with the VPN, which may be expected (I have no basis for comparison).
I am learning more about PBR and DNS routing from these forums to support selective VPN usage with matching DNS routing.
