Having this issue and would appreciate any help/advice. I have my main Internet router setup and my dd-wrt router connected to it to serve another part of the house where the wifi signal is low. I basically have a network cable running from the main router to the Internet port on the DD-WRT router (A LinkSys E3200).
For some reason I get frequent 404 responses on computers connected to the ddwrt router. Whenever I get these I just need to try again and then it goes through.
My DDWRT router setup is pretty much the default automatic dhcp configuration. Only thing I've changed is the wifi details, timezone, username and password, things like that.
No details on build revision; Also, a little fine-tuning of some configs (dnsmasq) might help. A 404 error on an internet site may not necessarily be the fault of the router, though...
Apologies. I'm using this build - Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r43652 mega (07/03/20). I was on the latest stable version a few weeks ago and having the issue so started trying the betas builds to see if those would help. Same issue on 2.7 version as well. Can you say where to find the dnsmasq configs? I only see the option on the setup page to and the checkbox there is currently selected. I only get these intermittent 404 errors when connected to the second router (both wired and wireless). Everything is stable when connected directly to the first router.
Thanks for the response. I think I had looked at this before but I have devices to connect both wired and wirelessly to the second router and I recall some issue with that. I'm not entirely sure so will go over the documentation again to make sure.
