I have a Netgear R8000, and the performance is terrible. I have to reboot every few days, because of speed drops. I tried older Netgear firmwares, but still have issues. Before I flash it with openwrt, I have some questions. After flashing, will I have two 5ghz channels, and one 2.4ghz channel, like the stock firmware? I see special instructions for better Wifi:
opkg install kmod-brcmfmac kmod-brcmutil (this is done by default on stock OpenWrt image).
set country code to US
set channel 48 to radio2
set channel 149 to radio0→ SAVE → Reboot
Where exactly do you make those changes, in the settings, or do you open the image in Notepad, and make the changes? Thanks, Len
