Just got r35034 std 02/17/2018 on my TM-AC1900 / RT-AC68U router. Looks like it all works properly. This router has separate LEDs for the 2.4 and 5GHz radios. Only the 2.4 LED works and the 5GHz LED is unlit. A check with my tablet and WIFI Analyzer shows I am getting both the 2.4 and 5GHz signals though. Is this a known anomaly with the LED indicator on this model router?

Is there any way to get the 5GHz led to work properly again? I now have two TM-AC1900 routers converted to RT-AC68U and DD-WRT loaded and both have the issue with the 5GHz led not working.

Are they both running the current public beta?

I have 4 of these routers, and the 5Ghz LED has never worked on DDWRT. However, it does work on FreshTomato. I personally don't think it's that big of a deal if the 5 Ghz radio is working.

I am thinking of moving back to dd-wrt. I have RT-AC68U v2. I want to use VLANing to isolate IoT. Will I get the 200Mbps/10Mbps Spectrum Cable provides?
