Tested the trailed e2500 19200 build. Power LED working, SSH server key retained after reboot, channel selection is working again. I found that changing a setting from say NG-Mixed to G only, or enabling Afterburner (just two examples) would lock up the router after applying the change - had to power cycle router, upon reboot, settings were retained, and router operated fine. I did a 30-30-30 and reflashed, now changing/applying settings works without problem. Interference setting does improve noise, and speed a little bit for me.
Will test more later / over weekend.

Thanks again for all your work.

Has anyone tried Client Bridge with this recently-ported device? I need a bridge for the entertainment center in my living room, and E2500's are available locally.

Where did you find the trailed e2500 19200 build? I can't find it on the FTP.

Fractal only posted it for a short time, it was not an official build, but just one to test some specific problems / fixes. I think there will be some new builds released soon - watch this thread and the Broadcom section of the forum.

I was wondering what is needed to complete 5ghz support for this router? Donations to Fractal? Beer? "Favors"? My firstborn child? Let me know. Thanks. Laughing

I tried Client Bridge without the 30-30-30 reset first and it bricked the E2500. All lights are dimly lit now with no responses...

I used build 18946.

Client bridge does work on my 2 routers, and the same build 18946 bricked the 3rd one when I didn't follow the procedures step by step.

I was able to get the client bridge working great with 2 E2500's (1 is a refurb) both running dd-wrt. It took a bit of tinkering, but its working great. Follow the directions on this site carefully, it won't steer your wrong.

The only hiccup I am having is that I am maxing out on wireless at 1.2mb/s on a 30mb/s internet connection. Upload maxes out correctly at 6mb/s, but download is giving me issues. Just found someone else with the same issue. I'll let you know if I can get the latest test build and if that makes a difference.

I am having major wifi speed issues with the 18946 build and have heard the newer builds might make a difference.

I'm also having issues with wifi speeds. I rebooted the router and speeds are back up. I'll report back if they degrade. I changed the wireless mode from Mixed to G-Only as I only have G/N connected clients.

Well, I did the unspeakable... I flashed back to stock =(

I have too many wireless clients to deal with the sub 1Mb/s speeds I was getting. I have tried EVERYTHING, only receiving marginal success. I will try again as soon as the next build is out...

The unfortunate thing is, I cannot get my client bridge working unless both the router and the bridge are running dd-wrt. Perhaps I am just doing something wrong on the bridge side, but that's the way it's been working. With dd-wrt on both routers, I have no problems getting things working. Oh well, better to good service on the devices that get used all day than to have terrible service but a client bridge that also has terrible service.
