Ok, just edit that step by step post to use root for the log in.

Then where it say lets install LUCI, just add something that says, be sure to have the WAN port connected to the ISP modem or a internet source before starting the opkg commands. I did this and the connection failed so I presumed that the WAN port needed internet service.

Just want your step by step post  to be as detailed and complete as possible.  ;) I'm going to make this thread a sticky.

I'm up on the UI with IE 11. Looking around.  ;D
Ya I see only 2.4Ghz. Wondering if we can get 5Ghz going I hope. Not a major big deal as I can always add on of my better AC class APs to the back end. Would be nice to get both radios going though.  ::)

Awesome. Ya even OpenWRTs site doesn't mention the log in name of root after connecting with Putty. Oy vay.  ::)

Kewl let us know what you find out. Hope it's good. Looks good thought. I'll try and get this online this weekend. I'm currently testing a different router.  ;D

Like to figure out how to set up the front LEDs as well for original behavior.

I'll play around some on it. If you get better result, post please.  ::)

I'm getting the Internet Globe to turn on and color is pale Yellow Or Orange. I think we should see Green for Good connection on the WAN port. I'll play around over the next couple of days.
There a wiki on there site for LED and WiFI configurations?

I got the Globe to go Green by using green planet default checked, Trigger Phy0assoc and orange planet default unchecked and Trigger Phy0assoc. This is going to be a process to figure this out.  ::)

Ok.. after testing Dlink Stock firmware with Streamboost ON and OFF and OpenWRT with  SQM ON and OFF, I have just one thing to say:

STREAMBOOST TOTALLY ROCKS!!!

It managed to keep ping low even in high bandwidth situations. Look at the benchmarks below.
The cenario I took was the following:
1 - Open Battlefield's Battelog screen to search for servers.
2 - Took a screenshot of the BF4 servers ping list with the internet bandwidth idle
3 - Start 5 torrents and an ISO download using Free Download Manager until maximum bandwidth is achived
4 - Open Battlelog screen and check the pings.



The picture bellow is my whole screen when maximum bandwidth was being used with battlelog scren opened as a proof

How did you have SB/ABE and OpenWRT set up for QoS or prioritization?
Please post pictures.
Whats your ISP speed Up and Down that you pay for?

I pay for 35/3.5
ABE: OFF
SB configured 35/3.5

Unfortunately I didn't took any screenshot while on OpenWRT. I had to install luci-app-sqm packet to install SQM on OpenWRT.

How did you have the prioritization set on SB? Anything in particular or did you just leave the list alone?

Just leave it alone. One thing I notice is SB "reserves" about 10% the value you type in the Down/Up boxes. With SB off, I can reach 37mb on speedtest, but my pings on battlefiled varies a lot when high bandwidth is demanded. When I set SB on and set download to 37mb, I can reach only 33Mb on speedtest. I think SB reserve those 10% to prevent lagging in games.
