So I am wanting to set up my r7000 as a client using ddwrt as I find it better at that than tomato. So I flashed stock, reset, flashed Kong initial latest, reset, flashed Kong latest stable(5-31)...also tried other builds.
The issue is it will not keep any setting after a reboot, it requires me to set a username and password every boot along with all other settings gone.
Also some settings like Mac clone will cause the router to stop responding to any requests, can't load the GUI can't telnet in.
This issue is with ddwrt only as genie works great as does asuswrt-merlin and tomato.
Things I've tried:
Telnet erase nvram
Telnet nvram commit after changing settings in GUI
Multiple different builds dating back to 29300 build
Flashed firmware multiple times
Checked md5 on every firmware I downloaded
Telnet "nvram show" - shows size: 31580 bytes (33956 left)
Reset default settings in GUI
Used my laptop to flash and change settings
Tried changing settings then making a backup and restoring it but apon restoring it reboots and resets again.
Tried waiting 20min before making any changes after flashing.
I have no idea what to try. I know the router is not bad as tomato and other firmware have no issues. If anyone knows what can cause this and what I can do to try fixing it would be awesome.
