enabling G/N mixed or N only disallows my smart light bulbs and thermostat from connecting, connections on phones and laptops are spotty. I have tried enabling and disabling all the options in Advanced, disabling the 5ghz band completely (which works fine btw) and trying WPA/WPA2, WPA only, WPA2 Only, etc.

Kicker is if I disable security and leave it as an open network, N works great.

Its been like this since i've flashed about a year ago, and no firmware since has fixed it. Tried multiple factory resets.

If you still need additional info regarding smart devices (ESP8266 chipset), please feel free to ask. Not a new problem and no resolution in sight as Linksys is unlikely to release their proprietary driver to the world.

Well crap, so it's not something that DD-WRT can solve? Does reverting to stock firmware fix it?

Don't have the control that DD-WRT offers, but yes stock firmware seems to work fine.
