Kernel Version Linux 4.9.298 #609 SMP Thu Jan 27 21:02:15 +07 2022 armv7l
Uptime 3 weeks
Reset multiple times
I am running wi-fi through an access point ASUS GT-AC5300. Wi-Fi is turned off on Netgear XR750. On some devices on wifi, the Netgear XR750 takes a minute or more to connect to the internet. The devices connects to the Netgear XR750 router with the router's ip address.
Is an issue with dd wrt firmware or is there setting I am missing to reduce the time to connect to the internet.

I can't understand your setup. How is the XR750 connected to Asus router? Wired or Wireless, if wireless would wireless mode is the DD-WRT router on (Client, Client Bridge, WDS, etc)? _________________ Before asking a question on the forums, update dd-wrt: Where do I download firmware? I suggest reading it all.

Yes there is a delay, between networking services coming up up and WAN connection actually sticks varies between routers.
Ive noticed some repeats during boot, adapter on PC (wired) up (discovering)/down (network cable unplugged)/up (discovering)/down (network cable unplugged)/up finally getting IP's from DHCP (static leases assignments) and locking into the preset leasess and WAN connection being made finally.
Can you do anything about it locally? No! (short of you fixing it and sharing patch)
Can something be done about it, sure, maybe, maybe not, depends on how convincing the bug reports are to the main Dev.
