Looks like usb 3.0 is not working right and 2.4Ghz issues. Same complaint I have with dated Gui. 5Ghz band did really well. Also would have like to see more ram.

Saw something the other day I have asked about. Do you have the USB 3.0 option enabled or disabled on your router? I saw a message come up that when I selected the enable button and OK, I got a message stating that enabling USB 3.0 will adversely effect 2.4Ghz WiFi. Have you seen this?

I have usb 3.0 disabled, I have a server and don't need it right now. Take a look at this article on USB 3.0/2.4Ghz.

Interesting...I guess this is why they added that option on the 868L. Wonder what other model routers this effects...I know the DIR-857 has USB 3.0. Hmmm.

Thank you for the information.
