If you are going to restore a backup, dont even bother resetting. That's not what "it's there for."
I recommend using iMacros to 'record' your entries as you set the router up from scratch. Next time, reset, and simply run your macro to set it up exactly the same way again automatically.
I've never read any where that you shouldn't restore your settings using that function. Btw I always do a hard reset before and after and the number of posts means nothing. If you look at when I joined you'll see I'm new at this.
Why would the developers implement a function in the builds if it's meant to not be used. I guess I'm an idiot.
2. You CANNOT install old configuration files made on one svn build on any other firmware without risking large problems. Don't do it. Restoring backups after changing builds can brick your router! Delete your old configuration files once you are sure the newer firmware is stable. They are useless. Also, it should not even have to be mentioned but you cannot use backup files from one router model on another router model. You should also not re-use old config files IF you are having any problems, or you could put the problem back in. This does mean you have to re-enter ALL your configurations again. Don't bitch about this. It's the FUN of third party firmware. Plus you might see some options you missed before. If this is a hassle for you, try using Imacros for firefox to automate the process.
Trying to optimize my router, and using my iPad 2 I seem to only be getting 64M tx and rx rates - these are below expected, right? However, my PS3 which is further away gets 104 tx and 54 rx.
My settings are:
Lower control channel
TX Power is 22 dBm
gain is 0
Short preamble is disabled
Both antenna chains are 1+2+3
Sensitivity range is 800
Am I missing something?
It's not the router, it's the iPad. Most tablets and smartphones only support speeds of up to 65Mbps on 802.11n due to a single stream, single antenna, 20MHz channel limitation in the hardware.
I'd suggest setting the router to Dynamic 20/40MHz for the channel width, not that it'll make much difference, but when you're only getting speeds that low, there's little point in keeping both channels active at all times.

samba and ntfs support is not included in that version, right?
It actually is working! I was suprised to find that a 1TB NTFS drive I plugged in did work. However it is very slow. ~1.5Mb/s versus ~8Mb/s for ext3. So if you have to have NTFS, then it will work, but if you want any sort of performance I would highly recommend ext3.
I have build 18777 on my router. Under the Services/USB, I have my external drive showing up as Mounted on/ mnt with a single NTFS partition of 931gb. However, I can not access the drive from my PC.
