Hi,

I'm currently running a Linksys WRT1900AC V1.
With Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r30645M kongmv (09/18/16)

I was wondering if there is a recommended firmware to upgrade to?

I've read that Build r31924 is recommended although I cannot locate that version. Has it been pulled?

Any advice on this please?

Thanks in advance!

While we're making recommendations any good build to try for WRT32X yet? The Linksys firmware runs kernel 4.4.14 and it's based off OpenWrt, thus OpenWrt 18.06-rc1 runs very well. However looking to try out DD-WRT on it soon Smile

The two latest builds ran well, but the front panel LEDs are wonky in 36168. All LEDs work in 36247 except for USB 2 (USB 3.0) and that has already been fixed for the next release.
DD-WRT is still using the 4.9 Kernel unlike OpenWrt & Linksys Venom.

Definitely read this first:

If you are iOS device dependant like me, you might want to wait for a resolution to this issue:

All my wireless devices are Apple. I had to go back to OpenWrt until it's fixed.
