Did you reset to defaults and put settings in manually *after* upgrade?[/quote]

I did.

The site, oprintware.com doesn't seem to exist any more so I'm not sure where the installation software is, if it even exists any more.

Interesting, the site came right up for me <lol> Oh, dear. <eyeroll>



Back to topic, I believe dear father was asking for you to post your settings screenshots so we can see what might be amiss...

May have spoke too soon (sort of). Printing works like a charm, but now that I've upgraded the f/w I'm having issues with my internet speed. I'm getting about a tenth of what I should be (was) getting when connected via ethernet and a fifth or so via wi-fi. I seem to be capped a 90mb/s or so no matter what I do. I manually changed the default settings to be identical to what they were before, but that did not seem to change anything. Do you have any suggestions for optimal set up? I suppose my issue might be with a feature that didn't exist on the old firmware(?), and / or something not related to the wireless settings (as I'm facing this issue on the wired setup as well).

Thanks again

Yes, I did. Attaching my wireless settings here (all the rest is default), although as slow speed is also via ethernet, I am not sure that they are relevant to the issue at hand.

Ok, thanks for the heads up on the domain.

So has it, there was an issue on the ISP side that just happened to be at the same time as the upgrade...go figure! Settings are as described in the previous link ("QCA BEST WIFI SETTINGS"), network printing works, and speeds are as expected.

Thank you once again! Worth converting to dd-wrt just for this forum Smile

Does anyone have any experience with printing from an android phone with this kind of setup? When I try to add the printer by IP through the phone's print service (tried a couple different ones), it says that it cannot connect or find the printer on this IP. The phone is connected to the router via wi-fi. I don't have a computer that is always connected, so printer sharing wouldn't be an option.
