Thanks, I was lucky to pick up an used DIR-882 for cheap this past Saturday. Tested it against my R7000 and WRT1900AC, the simple way since I have a blind spot for 5G at a corner of my house.
Tested it with my HTC-M8 cellphone.
WRT1900AC v.2 with Openwrt (lede) firmware, can connect to 5G but will drop connection.
R7000 with latest DDWRT (Kong's build), can see the 5G but could not obtain an ip address.
Dir-882 with latest DDWRT, connected to 5G and speed test about 38mbps/9mbps with my 50/10 internet connection.
You are right, it is worth the upgrade, thanks again.
