    Guys I've got a new E4200 this week and of course 5 min after the box was opened was already running Shibby's 116, but for some reason I can't get the 2.4Ghz-only (eth1) interface to work. I tried everything: adjusting channel number, turning on/off encryption, channel width, rate. Nothing works. I tried with/without the Second radio (eth2) - still no result. I saw another thread from 2012 with exactly same issue (regarding Shibby build), could this be a bug surviving for that long?

    Actually I went through RAF (NVRAM Clear ofcourse) and back to the Original FW - on all of them I can't find the 2.4Ghz Network. Sounds like a faulty 2.4Ghz, although I get readings from it and in general appears to be working.

    Oh, my mistake. I thought you cant make 5Ghz work. If you cant see 2,4Ghz, It looks like some malfunction.

    There is a problem though, with stock FW on 5Ghz i get something like 40 Mbps (WiFi-WAN, which is just shy of 45 which is my ISP cap), however on Shibby (same settings entered after NVRAM erase) i can't get more than 22Mbps.

    What is your device wifi capability? Test your wifi connection close to router at first. What is your router wifi settings?

    I'm using an iPhone5 within < 1 meter from the router and i'm using different SSID to avoid settings conflict. The maximum i can squeeze is ~22Mbps.

    To be completely sure its a hardware fault, i started playing with Broadcom commands (wl). The BSSID appears to be zeroed (no MAC) and the interface can't be turned on (up always reports "Not turned on"). As for speeds, i flashed it with TomatoRAF and i enjoy ~ 30Mbps on 2.4 and ~40Mbps on 5Ghz. Pretty pathetic, considering there are very few and very low power clients around me, but what can you do.
