    Stay at home please, torment your router, save you family. COVID-19 it is seriously.

    Now: You have a lot what to do. This is important release. Mainly because of using new Toolchain including significant changes such as latest GCC compiler v 9.3.0 released Mar 12, 2020 instead of old 4.8.5 (2015).

    https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-9/

    Goal is obvious: additional performance boost because of modern compiler optimization.

    @Voxel with this release, I want to buy a compatible NG router just to torment it! :)

    Great updates and options for the NG community from you. Keep yourself and your family safe too! :)

    Upgraded to this version, the only thing I became aware after reinstalling Kamoj's addon was the change to YeAH from Westwood for Congestion control.
    Which is the correct setting? If any.

    That sort of thing goes a bit outside my realm of knowledge, google searches give various opinions and something called TCP BBR, which isn't in this FW.

    Sorry, I forgot to add into release notes. YeAH was set as default in 39.1HF...

    You may switch to Westwood+.

    I lost power to my R9000 and found it lost all settings afterward on this version - can anyone confirm/deny the same? It goes right back into factory setup every time for me.

    Hello,

    Does any one know how to Disable WPS on R9000? I can't find a setting to completely disable WPS on R9000. I am running Voxel. Thanks.

    Hello,

    Thank you very much. I have removed the check mark. Will this completely disable wps?
