Anyone know how to change country code? He mentioned "set the nvram variable" but which variable? I tried wl(0,1)_regdomain and it changed nothing.

EDIT: PMed the dev, ‘region’ is the variable I need to set.

What are my options for using your build whilst you fix PPPOE?

Do I just use it as an AP and get my modem to do the routing, firewall etc?






I use mine as Dumb AP with VLAN , PFsense for routing,firewall etc

Just figured I should share a simple one liner (mostly) I've written to control the USB LEDs automatically, based on which port is used:
Code:
gpio enable 13
gpio enable 14
sh -c "while true; do [ -d /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-2 ] && gpio disable 13 || gpio enable 13; ([ -d /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1 ] || [ -d /sys/bus/usb/devices/2-1 ]) && gpio disable 14 || gpio enable 14; sleep 1; done" &

Put this in startup script, reboot and profit. Works for DIR-882 with broly or official builds.

For those who have struggled with Broly's build who use PPPOE,it is now working.

Big thanks to Broly for his support over the last few days trying to get this working.

Can I install this firmware if I'm using the standard DD-WRT build or should I use the recovery page to flash this?

Yes,you can install this build from the update menu of the standard DD-WRT.
I have done this and I'm very pleased.
The WiFi speeds are excellent in 5GHz and the WiFi LEDs are working.
I am using a DIR-882 and the latest Broly version.

Thanks for your answer;

I'll give it a try to broly's build. I'm having a few issues with standard DD-WRT (build 43718)

WiFi connection stops working after a while, need to turn off and on the WiFi in the device to get it working again.

Not the best 5GHz WiFi speeds, I was able to get 350/350 Mbps using 5GHz and D-Link 1.30 firmware. Now I'm getting 200/240 Mbps.

Hi,
I got over 400Mbps at 5Ghz. The PC is 6 meters (20 feet) from the router with 3 brick walls.
I tested with Broly's 43652.

Thanks for your build broly, it is working very good after some tweaking!

I just tested the current version (kernel 4.14.188 and DD-WRT v43813), 2.4GHz was broken and after I changed the default router IP to 192.168.0.1 I couldn't set the DHCPv4 range using the GUI (Setup > Basic Setup).

I had to set the DHCPv4 range is dnsmasq additional config.

I installed the older version (kernel 4.14.187 and DD-WRT v43652) and it is working much better.

I found in Services > dnsmasq an "undefined" option, is that a blank button or an actual option with missing name?

Hi guys,

I use this in wired bridge mode connected to my ISP modem/router (only way I can sync/get 1000/500 mbps advertised speeds).

Its all fine until the DIR882 (running latest Broly build) decided to turn on DHCP without me doing anything and internet stops working until I manually go in and disable it. It happens every few days but irregularly.

Any tips or solutions? QoS and firewall are off and I followed the guide off the main dd-wrt page.

Indeed 43813 has broken 2.4G. The ra0 interface has all zero hwaddr. I also noticed that VHT160 is gone from 5G channel width selection.

Update: 44006 fixed the above problem (and the "undefined" option in DNSMASQ options is gone). I've had it running stable for about a day. Thanks Broly Smile
Also Broly doesn't look at this thread very often, if you guys want problems fixed maybe pm him.
