That's probably the best I can get. I can't get openwrt or lede to work on it, since it has some sort of winbond issue. I can't find any solution. Drat.
Yeah, success. Use this pointer to the devel branch. Openwrt seems to be confusing right now. I'm getting full speed now on the Ookla speed test.
ps. using various speed tests, you get full speed in the morning, and reduced speeds in the afternoon. Blah.
