Please consider researching the build threads. The answer you seek depends on your configuration and network topology.

Read the build threads and you would know it's probably r44048 for now (or the very latest, if you feel lucky).

Everyone's experience will be different (client devices, configurations); there is no "best stable" firmware.

08/02/2020 - r44048 | 08/07/2020 - r44085 | 08/09/2020 - r44112

08/13/2020 - r44187 | 08/15/2020 - r44191 | 08/18/2020 - r44213 | 08/22/2020 - r44236

READ the build threads? All threads I see are NEW? The heading on these pages tell you do not download unless you know what you are doing, and/or can test them.

Where are the threads for those who are not clued up and are happy to try an old and tested version?

Some of the threads go back years, I have been reading for 2 days before signing up to the forum, The stickys have links to the latest. Proper headache material. Laughing Laughing

Old builds don't necessarily give you fewer problems. I have had fewer issues with 44048 than with any of the older builds I have used (going back nearly three years).

I strongly suggest you try 44048 first. If you really, really want to experiment with something older, look at 40009 from mid-2019. But a lot has improved since then, including some security improvements.

A quick comparison. This is on 5Ghz and I have a 500Mbit connection.


2020-08-22 44048 Beta Firmware -> 445.70 Mbps D/L




2019-08-06 Stable Firmware -> 311.38 Mbps D/L

Build 08-06-2019-r40559 is not a stable build; they are all beta.

And...wait for it...r40559 is a crappy build and do not use the router database as it's useless.
