Default download master

Doesn't seem like anything has been done with the torrent upload-seeding part of download master? Thought it was going to work in the upcoming firmware release. Perhaps download master has a separate release cycle?

Windows 7 64 bit doesn't seem to display firmware 3.0.0.4.374.454. Try 32 bit or other platform and it should show.

That hid well. Was hoping for new RT-AC66U/R firmware, but not this time.

2.4Ghz signal has gotten a bit better in some parts of the house and a bit worse in other parts of the house.

2.4Ghz speed has gone down the toilet.


WAN-LAN speed has went up; 0.5Mbps/down and 0.5Mbps/up. Using Xfinity website for speed test.
Ping has went down from 14ms to 10ms

Downloading same Ubuntu torrent as a test, the speed is all over the place. Before this firmware, same torrent would max out my WAN speed in under a minute with a PC connected via WiFi. Will test again later today.

Odd now it disappeared from the Windows 7 32 bit list, but still exist for platforms like Windows 2003 64 bit etc. Wonder if it's official or just some database magic?

Quick update;

After a few resets and reflashes, I got most of the speed back on 2.4Ghz on the PC upstairs.

By Disabling Explicit and Implicit Beamforming, it greatly improves WiFi signal on 2.4Ghz band.



Update 2;

By having ONLY Implicit beamforming Enabled, I now have a perfect balance between signal range and speed on 2.4Ghz band. Its not as good as it was on .371 firmware, but it works for now.
