The thing is I'm a noob so I apologize in advance. Don't know what to do next. Do I copy and paste the patch file to somewhere in the file above? any guidance would be appreciated. then use cmd to make image?
thanks for your reply. You know I actually flashed your image that was posted in another forum on my router. https://volatilesystems.org/dl/lede/targets/r6850/
It fixes the dbm issue and allows it to go up to 20. sadly, though the router power light remains orange and the internet doesn't work so I reverted back to 21.02.3.
I think my router even on stock eventually stopped providing the correct tx but unfortunately i can't go back to stock to check. Nmrp flash always succeeds in flashing stock but then the router just keeps restarting over and over. Only openwrt firmware through nmrp works now
