I just got a new AC66U and flashed it with the download from the router database (v24 preSP2 build 21061). Unfortunately, whenever I hit "apply" on any screen I get an immediate "The connection was interrupted" as soon as I hit the apply.cgi page.
So I go back to 192.168.1.1 and try to upload the 24661 build (dd-wrt-24461-Asus_RT-AC66U.trx) and it immediately flashes to the error connection reset message. At this point, I have to turn off the router's power and reboot before I can get back to a GUI (which will show 21061).

I bought a new ASUS RT-AC66U today and followed this guide how to flush it with DD-WRT, http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Asus_RT-AC66U. I downloaded dd-wrt-24461-Asus_RT-AC66U.trx from the FTP and after I have flashed the router with this I got very starnd behavor. I felt like not all things are working. For example radio was off I couldn´t enable it.
I then downloaded dd-wrt-Asus_RT-AC66U.trx from the router database search, http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database and when I flashed the router with that software everything works great. THe only this is that the build of this relese if very old, Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13). Do any one have any idea why the latest version doens´t work for me or know a never version than Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) working os RT-AC66U?
Read the stickies at the top of this forum. Notice where it says not to use the router database.
Also look at my sticky for installing dd-wrt on the rt-n66u and rt-ac66u. _________________ I am far from a guru, I'm barely a novice.

DD-WRT v24-sp2 (09/16/14) kongac - build 25015M

Guys I downloaded the above latest KONG version for the router and flashed it and it works OK I guess, On the 5GHz antenna I never get more than 150Mb throughput on my N Mobile Phone. I wanna know why flashing this could have messes up me hooking up to my PPTP VPN when LTP/IPsec works fine. This is weird. Any ideas?? Thanks!!!
Here below is my 5GHz antenna configuration::
Wireless Mode AP
Wireless Network Mode Mixed
Wireless Network Name (SSID) ASUS5GHz
Wireless Channel 149-5.745GHz
Channel Width VHT (80+80 MHz)
Extension Channel lower lower
Sensitivity Range is 300
