It works well on both. But I have noticed better performance and bandwidth with snapshot. This is due to kernel 5.15 and DSA.
There are no 23.x build yet but they will be forked from master snapshot someday.
I guess so. If you perform a sysupgrade, it will flash the "other" partition. Settings from 22.03 and snapshot are not compatible. So flashing between 22.03 and snapshot while keeping settings may lead to issues.
Once the bootloader has been tweaked, the device is ready for the future and still can boot any Linksys or 22.03. I have already tried several flashes this way.
Thanks again. I just flashed 22.03 with kernel tweak. Now, ready to flash the snapshot and am just going to overwrite to the other partition and don't care about OEM anymore. Hopefully, I don't regret my decision. lol
When I tried to flash the snapshot from 22.03, I am getting a message saying that the image is incompatible based on the image version (1.0 -> 2.0). Kernel partition size must be increased. I already increased the kernel partition size and confirmed the change and did a reboot as well.
I did reboot and checked the bootloader setting and it looks correct. I will try the factory image and not keep the settings and still get an error saying that the image metadata not present and it's asking me to force upgrade.
EDIT: It took me back to Linksys OEM firmware after I did a force upgrade and I guess it didn't like it.
I tried to update it to snapshot from Linksys and after a reboot, I was NOT able to login to the router. I refreshed the page and even set a manual IP (192.168.1.2) and still could not connect. I had to switch to the other partition (OEM) and I flashed 22.03 and it works!
What wifi settings do you have? Are all the bands turned on?
For some reason, my internet speeds are NOT going above 80 - 90 Mbps on the snapshot. When I am on Netgear R7800, I get about 480+ Mbps. What could be the reason? Settings are identical between R7800 and MR8300 as both of them are running snapshot builds.
Sorry that I can't tell exactly. I just remember that I changed country code, channel, power transmit, encryption and password. So nothing offensive.
I remember performing bandwith test up to 850/900 Mbits (I have 1Gb/s) with software offloading.
In fact I don't own the device, it is in my parent's home.
