So, I was wondering what would be the best firmware for a good ol' DIr-615 C1? Been trying the one on the website and I tried the last beta one you can find on the FTP server (I think it was March 23'rd) but... both of them make that my speed is unstable, specially with live streaming (it will stutter and lag a lot). I tried OPENwrt to test and I don't have the issue with it, but I would very much try to go back with DDwrt as OPENwrt interface kinda sucks (very much less user fiendly) and there's other weird issues like where I can't start the Wifi service (nothing will save), but, anywhoo, yeah; what would be the best firmware for it?! Thanks!

I have a bunch of C1 and E3s but they are currently all stored. The last time I went to upgrade a C1, it bricked. I had to recover via the hidden D-Link Emergency Room and Firefox Portable 13.
Be very careful with maximum upgrade file size with these routers. Check each and every time you upgrade. A bunch of releases the upgrade file is too large, a bunch of other releases the factory file is too large. _________________ Before asking a question on the forums, update dd-wrt: Where do I download firmware? I suggest reading it all.

Well, even without anything configured (default settings), the recent firmware's are a bit unstable and will stutter while watching streams, like on Twitch, or sometimes with Discord Screenshare too. Reverted back to stock firmware of it and all seems fine & no stutter on streams. I'm at loss to what I can do now.
Not knowing what settings you were working with in DD-WRT, we can't drop any gem nuggets for you. Considering the hardware in question, I would consider finding something with a little more horsepower under the hood.
Nothing; the only thing I've configured once I flashed the firmware last time was to disable Wifi and...that it's.
