It's been a few months since I checked for new builds, and today I found a new one (dd-wrt.v24-18777_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_nokaid_small). I decided to give it a try, hoping they have fixed the slow Wi-Fi problem that exists in every build after dd-wrt.v24-16994_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_nokaid_small. I have no idea why, can anyone assist me?

AFAIK, there is an issue with the newer WiFi drivers, which are needed to support some of the more recent routers.

Kong has a modified build which is more recent than 16994 but uses the older drivers for some routers.

Could you be so kind to direct me to them? Razz

I could, but then I'd have to do the same search you could. Smile

Nope, can't find them. Guess I'll just downgrade back to 16994.

Or see peacock announcement note 3. No need to be running those newer k26 builds on that router.

OP: I run 16773 on my WRT160Nv3, and have found this build to be the fastest and most stable build for this hardware.
