Default DD-WRT v24 RC 7 Released

Please Login to Remove!

FYI...

Release Candidate 7 of DD-WRT v24 has been released. The forum reviews at their site report it as being stable. This does have the newer chipset drivers, enabling the option for "Bluetooth Co-Existance" capability. Thinking of all the Bluetooth things in your house (phone, game system controllers, etc) it's not a bad feature to enable.

It is suggested to wipe your settings after the upgrade to make sure you don't end up with old junk settings that screw up performance.

In RC6, they put a new driver for the wifi chip. I'm not exactly sure why that was done while in RC status, but oh well. That made it very unstable for several features. Supposedly all of those issues have been fixed in the RC7.

I Installed this thinking that it would resolve my bluetooth stereo headset issues. Everytime I use either of my motorola bluetooth stereo headsets, my wifi dies. Either my S805, or my HT820. The BT coexistence mode didn't change a thing, with my WRT54GS. Figured I'd share this information for anybody curious.
