Best hardware for wifi stability

Post by ocaz78 »

I have a TP-LINK WR1043ND with version 1.5.11, i'm really sick of the wifi being totally unstable.

Could you tell me what hardware is stable with wifi.

I understand that the ath9k driver is full of bugs and most hardwares come with atheros chips :(

My TP-LINK WDR3600 is also experiencing several wifi issues since upgrading to 1.5.11. Signal's have dropped considerably as well as speeds.

I used 1.5.9 prior and it was rock solid. Not sure about the OP.

Been noticing the same on my WNDR3700 ... Not sure what the last one that it was rock solid on but it isn't the latest release.

Disabling ani on the 1043nd has worked out very well for me.

Personally I found a custom version to be the best for my 1043nd's.
WiFi is rock solid for me.

So download the bin file and load that and I'll have better wifi? :)
