Upgraded my DD-WRT from sp2 build 17201 to build 19342. 1st tried the webflash. Bricked it... fixed... then tftp'd it.
Upgrade to 19342 took.. everything looked fine.. then very slow performance. My 50down/15up Mbps connection was running 4down/.07up Mbps.
Had to revert back to 17201... my speed is back to normal.
I wanted to upgrade because of problems. WiFi kept losing internet connection. Weird... could ping the router.. but not access the internet sites (even by IP). The LAN connection from my desktop would continue to work thougth.
Rebooting router would fix this.. then a few days later... same problem.

17201 is a pre-ath9k build, which i have also noticed with the newer ath9k builds that the signal is stronger but is more 'jittery' as it reports in inSSIDer, hence is a tad bit slower due to the jitter.
Best advice i could give is just to be patient with newer builds as the ath9k switch from the older drivers happened recently and it should take a little time for the devs to adjust for this. Also, supposedly work is being put into ath9k to help improve it, so hopefully this will help as well. _________________ Wireless N Config | Linking Routers | DD-WRT Wiki | DD-WRT Builds | Peacock - Broadcom FAQ
