Master most definitely fixed the wireless issues I had. I’m checking wireless commits on master which were not backported to 21.02. If I find the commit(s) that fixes the issues, this will all end.
I use Linksys WRT32X as my main drive. Wireless is unstable on OpenWrt 21.02.0-rc3. Wi-Fi client does not disconnect but it won't receive/transmit any data for a minute or so. This happens regularly.
I had no issues with OpenWrt 19.07.7.
I downgraded wireless firmware from 126.96.36.199 to the previous, 188.8.131.52, which is what 19.07 uses. Wireless is stable for me now.
If you have a Linksys WRT32X or WRT3200ACM, please compare Wi-Fi stability on OpenWrt 21.02.0-rc4 with my build which includes firmware 184.108.40.206.
