My wifi will come right back up, its like it resets itself and reboots, i can still see the router when im hard wired in so the whole router doesnt reboot, just the wireless portion. After 3 nvram erases and a reflash, its finally acting stable. Still happens once a day or so (that i notice, not here 24/7) my next move is looking at the system log.

Ok well I had to revert back the EA6500 router to BS build 23082 because for some reason the firmware wouldn't stick with the newer builds that brainslayer pushed out. Hopefully it will stick this time. I have erased the nvram over 10 times and push the same firmware to it multiple times in hopes that it will stick this time, kinda really annoying when watching youtube and the router resets back to linksys firmware in the middle and I have to re-push the firmware back to it, will check back in a couple of hours hopefully the router doesn't revert back to the linksys firmware. Anyone else having this same issue? Any suggestions? I have also done a 30/30/30 reset but the stupid linksys firmware keeps rearing its ugly head.

WAN speeds are still capped at ~70mbps in build 23204.

could you please check if your ethernet is just negotiated with 100 mbit?

so check the vlan tab and look if the port is Green or Yellow

Hi Brainslayer.
The WAN port color is green.
One cool thing is that now both WLs show up as 300mbps in Windows, and the TV is connecting much faster to the wireless N network. Smile

I have flashed two times but it still reverts back to linksys firmware. I have checked the logs and it looks like after a couple of hours it is on there it has a kernel panic and reverts back not sure why. Any other suggestions, i was thinking about doing the TFTP way but I think that the firmware being at 20 megs is to big for it to flash it properly.

one reason could be that the device isnt detected properly. so if northstar is shown instead of linksys ea6900 etc. its not detected correc. in that case, please send me the nvram show output

sounds like your windows adapter is not AC compatible. i connected two asus AC68 together. ohne in ap and one in client bridge mode. both are running in 1300 mbit

Okay, there is a misunderstanding.

- the router is "AC" compatible
- the laptop wifi adapter is "N" certified (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 - dual-band, up to 300mbps)
- the laptop Ethernet adapter gigabit (Intel 82579LM Gigabit).
- there are no interferences, the router 2.4 band is set to channel 9, and the 5GHz band is set to channel 48.
- my neighbors run their routers on channels: 1, 3, 4 and 12.

Now let me explain my problem with the speeds:

- connecting the ISP Ethernet cable into my laptop, I get ~(approximately)400 mbps
- connecting the ISP Ethernet cable into the router, I get ~70mbps with wifi and ~ 80mbps via the ethernet (laptop <-> router hardwired)
- the windows ethernet connection between the laptop and the router shows up as 1000mbps,
- the wifi networks indicate 300mbps.
- installing the Linksys stock firmware I get speeds that reach up to 350mbps at rush hours.

My problem is that I never got WAN speeds above 70mbps via wifi and 80mbps if I connect the laptop to the router with an ethernet cable.
It is true that the wifi adapter on this laptop is not AC compatible, but I should at least get approximately 200mbps in the worst case
at 1 meter away from the router.

Given all these details, it comes to my mind that the limitation is due to the dd-wrt firmware.

All I'm asking you is if you can test your router with any of these latest
builds and let me know how can you go beyond this speed limitation.

it is true that the stock firmware will always be a little bit faster right now since broadcom does not want to give out the fastnat CTF module to developers. they ship it only as binary. since are using a different kernel as linksys, this binary is totally incompatible. but there is hope. right now we are developing our own fastnat module which should solve this problem for all platforms. but 80 mbit still sounds to low for me. and by the way. if your intel adapter is able todo 300 mbit, it doesnt mean you can get 200. its more likelly 150. and its also not faster if you're just 1 meter away. think about how 802.11n works with multiple antenna paths. reflections on the wall do not happen in such close distances. its likelly that its getting faster if you're 10 meters away. keep also the SNR at a level of about 30 maximum. you dont need more. more than 35 - 40 is close to a signal overdrive

Im running dd-wrt-K3x-22524-ea6500.trx. I have not overclocked the processor yet, wireless temperatures run between 59C and 63C. 2.4 Ghz runs in the low 50C. What are safe operating temperatures for the BCM5300? ive looked everywhere and I cant find any documentation for safe temps. I want to overclock the processor but I dont want to cook it either. Anyone else safely ran the EA6500 overclocked?
