Good morning all, I have read a lot including Cliff Notes and others but it seems my issue is unique or I could not find the answer in the forums. I bought a WRT3200ACM & successfully install the latest DD-WRT V2.0-r405559 build. I get the DD-WRT menu & able to login initially but when I change the SSID and password I can no longer connect to the wifi or router.
With the default DD-WRT password I have no issue connecting to the wifi but it is not protected as it is open. I don't know if got a buggy build or if it got corrupter when installed. I already reset it twice and try to change the password and SSID on both the 2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz and same thing happens. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Can I reflash it with an older stable build? If so, which is the best way to go about. Sorry if this has been asked before but I spent the last two days researching the forums in order not to ask a dumb question and could not locate the answer.

See my attached screenshot when I set it up, I did that to remember what I had chosen but unfortunately I couldn’t get into my router after applying the settings. Btw, I did reset the router and used the newer build from 8/14/2019 and same issue. What I don’t understand in getting no replies is it because people don’t think we have read enough or they don’t know what is causing it. I spent almost three days reading the posts about my router on here and I used the Ethernet cable to update my router but still couldn’t get it going.
uhm, so, from my personal perspective, no one should read all these recommendations.If a feature does not work on a particular device, it should be provisioned to that device.
I have also lost several hours on trying to solve all these issues, until I got my working combinations: WPA1 Personal+WPA2Personal++AES.
There is also the possibility they don't know , or they haven't read yet the posts.
Now I have even got the USB-TTL cable so that I could see, if possible, at the lower level what is happening when the router is not responsive.... ... appart from this I want to put wrt3200acm firmware on it, along with dd-wrt... or open-wrt.

Yes, definitely select the AES algorithm on the right, the first one listed there. Don't select any others.
But also, have a look at https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Atheros/ath_wireless_settings to sort out the rest of the wifi settings. _________________ Six of the Linksys WRT1900ACSv2 on r38159 and r40009.
