So I was going to upgrade my ddwrt firmware when I noticed something. Up until this point, I always assumed my router was a 1900ACS v2. The FCC ID said 1900ACV2 after all, and the model number said 'WRT1900ACS'. However, with further research, it seems the model number would say 'WRT1900ACSV2' if it was actually a v2 router. Therefore, I have been running v2 firmware on a v1 router for several months! No harm done it seems, but I obviously want to switch to the correct firmware.
I am unclear as to the proper procedure for remedying this situation. Can I just download the latest beta firmware, open the DDWRT GUI on my current installation, reset to factory defaults, and then upgrade the firmware from the GUI? Or is there something more involved?
