Hi all I have flashed DD-WRT v24-sp2 on a TP-Link TL-WR941ND v4 and also on a TP-Link TL-WR741ND v1 works great but I don't know why with the stock firmware my Samsung i9001Android would get 19mbps wife speed now it gets 13/14 also Samsung galaxy s3 with tp link stock firmware I use to get 30mbps now 25 and for some reason I get a little better speeds on the WR741ND. I tried the wife speed test on my 3 laptops HP DELL SONY and get excellent WiFi speed so it seams to be something with the android. I thank you for Any ideas help or info. Btw I tried all channels and also disabled security still no success.
Hi sorry but you are rood I have found nothing that matches my problem, instead of all the bull you said you could have gave me a answer or the link to the topics you proudly said there is. If you feel it is a waist of time helping people free why don't you fix all the bugs ddwrt has and run it commercially. This firmware is full of bugs and not worth throwing away original firmware for this crap
I do not hate ddwrt but with all respect I did not find a direct topic for my problem if I did I would not have posted and if there is and I missed it I am sorry. But I think it's your attitude that needs improving, I just asked for a little help, instead of all this couldn't have someone just answered me. And above all why dont you mind your own business and when your firmware is done please let me know so we will try it out JOKER. and I do not kneed to build my firmware as tp link's is good enough its better a simple firmware than a buggy one
I use speedtest.net app. with tp link firmware i get 18mbps with ddwrt i get 12mbps and with samsung s3 tp link gives 30mbps ddwrt 20/21mbps thank you for trying I appreciate it wish there where more like you thanks

You need better routers.
Those TP-Link routers are cheap routers - they work well for basic usage
If you do a lot of internet usage with multiple devices, you need better router hardware
50mbps+ internet should have at least a 500mhz processor in the router
Stock firmware will always run quicker than 3rd party firmware
Stock firmware usually only has the basic functionality
3rd party firmware adds extra features which result in more CPU & Memory usage
Save yourself the frustration - sell your TP-Links and get a better router
Definitely one with at least 8MB flash & 64MB Ram & 500-ish MHZ processor
Also - better to get a dual-band 2.4ghz/5ghz model
You can set the wifi laptops to use 5ghz if they can and free up the 2.4 ghz channel _________________ Soylent Green Is People !

Hi, I use DD-WRT for many years on my Linksys WRT54G. Only recently I recognized, that I would get 150kbit/s instead of 35kbit/s if I connect directly to my cablemodem without the Linksys WRT54G. So I suppose my hardware is somewhat outdated.
I tried to find new hardware (http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices), but stumbled over the fact, that lists can not be sorted by performance or age of entries. Was I just clumsy searching or is it really not possible?
Or can you recommend any actual hardware to use as flawless with dd-wrt as my old Linksys WRT54G was? This is for powerful soho use, so I do not need enterprise features.
