OpenWrt Firmware for Archer c6 v3.2

Can you resend the stripped firmware for returning to stock?

Here you go:

Thanks a lot!

@AashishAS / @dsouza what steps did you take to return to the stock firmware mentioned earlier?

Just flash the file @dsouza sent via luci.

I installed version 22.03.0-rc1 and it's running smoothly so far...

Hi!
I flashed the 22.03.0-rc1 on C6 3.2 US but for some reason, I constantly get issue where a website will keep loading. This problem is occurring every 10-15 mins.
I know my internet connection is okay because if directly connect my laptop without the router, the problem seems to disappear.

Any ideas?

I just installed 22.03.0-rc1 to a C6 V3.2 (EU) 'UK' version.

One observation is INSSIDer for Windows is 'claiming' the 5 GHz signal from the C6 is significantly stronger than any other router I've previously tested. eg. -41dB instead of the usual -50dB with all other routers in same 'test' position about 7m away from laptop.

Using default settings.

config wifi-device 'radio1'
	option type 'mac80211'
	option path '1e140000.pcie/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:02:00.0'
	option channel '36'
	option band '5g'
	option cell_density '0'
	option htmode 'VHT80'

0c6v32

So from observing the logs, I find this error when some website is not loading properly. Any ideas to why?

22.03.0-RC2 is available https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/22.03.0-rc2/targets/ramips/mt7621/

My phone still disconnects, disassociates and then "deauthenticates due to inactivity" (5 Ghz). While I have noticed that I also disconnect from my other router, that happens a lot more rarely and I stay connected much longer, to the point where I didn't even notice before. With this router and OpenWRT I disconnect after a few minutes.
What is this "timer DEAUTH/REMOVE" anyway that I get in the log for automatic deauthentication? Can this timer be set anywhere?

Did you previously have the issue with OpenWrt on any other router?
