I wish I could help you but you gone farther than I have gone.
I just set a basic configuration on SQM tabs and thats it. SQM has too many options and possibilities and I have run out of time to test then all (I have a 2 months old son that is taking all my spare time lol)

I understand. I'll look for some help in there forums and see if anyone has more info. It is kind complex and the basic settings seems to work, however speed adjustments are in question as any thing I input doesn't seem to do anything. So I don't know if it is working or not.  ???

Did you go back to OEM FW or still have OpenWRT loaded?

Since I'm a heavy BF4 gamer, I went back to OEM FW. It provides me better pings.

I may at some point too as I'm a heavy CoD gamer. Will have to just disable ABE.

How is our SB and ABE configured for your gaming?

WOW, great work on configuring LEDs!! Any lucky enabling 5Ghz bands?

Regarding to SB settings, I have SB ON, ABE OFF. Manually input 90% of contracted bandwidth on download and upload.

Did you noticed your router is performing better with OpenWRT? What are your toughts?

Ya, someone mentioned that there maybe a ath10k something and QCA something packages that has to be installed. I asked for more details and i think someone responded however I now can't see the response as that forum is down currently. Argh.  >:(

I do think the 5500 performs better with WRT on it. For SQM, I didn't do any major testing as that needs more testing and work in configuration. I did some speed tests however I don't think it's working right. Also for SQM to work well, it needs a bandwidth load on the LAN side going out to the WAN side to be of any benefit so for my needs, It's not beneficial as my primary needs are for gaming and since I'm the only one gaming at night with nothing else going on, I can't make use of it.  ::)

However I am hoping to get details on setting it up for other users so we can at least get some extra or new life out of the 5500.

Soon as I get on the forum there, I'll see what the deal is about the 5Ghz radio. If we can get that going then the rest will be good I hope.  ;D

There is a Warning in the main page..

Server problems
OpenWrt's main hosting server (site, downloads, forum) is failing for last few weeks. Its hard drivers need to be replaced and we're currently waiting for delivery of new ones. Until that you may expect some random downtimes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ok, must have come up sometime yesterday evening. I can get on this morning.  ::)

So I'll try this this evening after work and see what I find for 5Ghz:
opkg update; opkg install kmod-ath10k; reboot

I'm looking forward to it. Maybe I'll give OpenWRT another chance this weekend.

Let us know what you find out if you try. I hope the repo's will be back up and online. I'm curious to get the 5Ghz radio going. I wanna complete your OpenWRT FAQ for this router.  ;D
