After several reboots with dd-wrt firmware has the original Linksys firmware instaled (itself). How is it possible?? Suddenly Linksys firmware has opened in internet browser. In all internet browsers.
The linksys is one of the first router that has 2 firmware images, the second image is used if the first image doesn't fully boot.
Thus if dd-wrt fails to boot the second image which is still linksys will be booted.
Did you clear nvram after installing dd-wrt?
No I didn't clear nvram after istalling dd-wrt. What will happen with clearing nvram?
I installed dd-wrt to test if 5GHz band is working. With stock firmware stopped working and the router reboots every time. It is same for now with dd-wrt also. Does clearing nvram has anything with it?
If nothing helps then I will return it under warranty.
Is there any log file to check, why is rebooting after 5GHz bans is enabled.

first of all thank you very much for working on DD-WRT for the EA6500.
I just finished the upgrade and it went smooth. everything seemed to be working fine until i setup my wireless networks... i will not get the same speeds as i was getting with the original Linksys firmware (see the attached pics). Am I missing something?
Shouldn't i be getting much higher transfer rates?
Can someone post some recommended settings for the DD-WRT firmware for the EA6500?
I was trying to figure out VLANs, going through the tutorials. I found out by unplugging and re-plugging the cables that the port numbers didn't make sense even in light of the documentation. I wound up with what appeared to be a pass through, my workstation suddenly had my public IP address. I reverted my settings, rebooted the router and it came back up with linksys firmware.
I guess I'm done with this for awhile. Maybe I'll go buy a pfSense appliance.
Stock Linksys firmware has same limitation about 5ghz channels.
Is this hardware limitation?
I'm suprised at this since a positive mentioned many times for the 5ghz band is the many channels.
Suddenly we only have 4.
nvram set wl0_country_code=<COUNTRY_CODE>
nvram set wl1_country_code=<COUNTRY_CODE>
EDIT: For some reason this defaults to 'US' for 'NO'. Atleast it exposes more channels than the default on my router (EU). Maybe someone with an understanding of how DD-WRT sets country (wl country) for the ea6500 can explain this.
