but without a safe "recovery" options i will hold!

Works solid as ever still. WiFi never drops a connection, which is nice.


I gave up on DD-WRT, Could never get channel bonding to work. So that mean it would only work in 20hz mode, which sucks.

Moving back to the stock Linksys firmware was pretty easy, and for the most part works good.


Can always use another router if you wanted and just use this with the stock firmware as a AP.


Never needed to use the Serial cable for it, but have used them on older Netgear equipment. For the most part I haven't seen the need to use it on this router yet.

PhotonFanatic Ok how did you get the lid off the router? I looked but there are no screws on the bottom.

Thinking this might do the trick.

My Laptop has access to everything from the bottom. rolleyes.gif

Also Kinda wish they made a 3x3 AC card for laptops, as I have three antennas.


Edit: Just picked up the 7260 and bracket, so will be testing that as soon as I get it. thumb.gif

A bit off topic, it would be cool if they made video cards like that for laptops that you could just slide into the side to upgrade.


They do make express slot wireless cards, but I don't like to use them.

That is with DD-WRT.

Channel Bonding doesn't work when I tried it.


With the Stock Firmware I get 19.5MB/s

And that is with a 300mbps N card.
