Asus RT-N66U and Shibby 0.95 = throughput and 5ghz issues

    Hi everyone! Recently I just purchased a brand new Asus RT-N66U router to replace my E3000 that can get quite hot.

    After installing Shibby 0.95 AIO version on the Asus, I immediately started seeing issues. Hard wired to the router, I can get about 30-32Mbps from Speedtest. When I use the 2.4GHz channel, I can only pull 2-3Mbps. This is with the router sitting next to the laptop. The 5GHz channel doesn't work at all, and sometimes I can't connect to it and other times I can connect but can't even ping the router. This, too, is while the router is sitting on the same table as the laptop.

    I'm going to try some trouleshooting, but I wanted to see if anyone else has these problems. Searching around, it look like I may be alone.

    And yes, I cleared the NVRAM after installing the firmware.

    Ok, here's some updates. I re-flashed 0.95 and had it erase NVRAM settings after flash. When the router come back, it had all default settings - I didn't change anything. The 2.4GHz band (SSID Tomato 24) was getting better throughput at 15-17Mbps, however the 5GHz band is still dead. I can connect and only half my pings to the router ever come back. Again, this is completely stock settings with Shibby RT-N 0.95 AIO build.

    I'm running the new v97 AIO 64K nvram shibby build and I get about 50Mbits on the 5ghz network. I have the 2.4ghz disabled for what thats worth.

    May be a hardware issue. So far no one else seems to be reporting this problem.
