      TP-Link DR-615 / DD-WRT third party router 'issues'

      I have flashed the D-Link DR-615 with DD-WRT and configured it to work with Sky Fibre.

      At the moment I have only one minor issue. If I set the wireless to be in Mixed mode my laptop ('N' capable) only reports 54mbps when connected. If i set it to N Mode I get 300mbps reported. I have tried G/N Mixed but I can't seem to get connected. I could do with keeping it at mixed due to other devices in the house not having N support.

      Anyone any ideas please?

      Edited to add - it's a DLink not a TPLink. Was reading Apache14's excellent step by step guide at the time

      Try Auto WPA+WPA2 with Cipher type AES & TKIP. If you use TKIP only, you will only connect at 54mbps. I have these options on my DIR 635, so you probably have them to.

      This config seems to have resolved it. Thanks Isitme
