Hi all, I hope you are having a great day. So I came back from my Christmas vacation and my roomate told me he had troubles with the WiFi in our room in the campus. I am not very familiar with creating networks, but the ball is my yard. He's not very tech savvy. I will try to give details and hope you can understand. 1. The provider: I don't know who that is. There is a socket on the wall and a CAT5e cable laying on the ground. It has Dynamic IP with free DHCP- no log in credentials are needed. You just plug in the cable and you have internet. 2. The router is: TP LINK- TL-WR1043ND . Firmware: DD-WRT v24 PreSP2 (beta) Build: 21061 So what happened. I came home and there was no WiFi. I tried hard reset and then filled in the simplest settings I know: name of the network and a passowrd. There was internet for a while and then started to drop, stop, etc. I tried again, but I couldn't run the internet through the stock firmware and I decided to flash it to DD-WRT. First time I try this. It flashed successfully. I could access the settings. I scanned with the phone to see which channels are busy and which ones are not so much. Because its a campus and everyone has a WiFi in their room. I chose: 20mhz for the waves and channel 9, as it seemed less crowded. The DHCP is enabled (whatever that does) and I haven't touched anything else. The MAC address is cloned. We have internet now. Its more consistent than before. It was "stuck" for a minute or so this morning and it fixed itself. What I wonder is do I need the setting: Clone MAC address enabled or disabled? Is it going to make the connection better?
