Missing 2.4Ghz wireless settings in AdvancedTomato on EA6700

    I have a Linksys EA6700 that I installed AdvancedTomato v3.5-140 AIO-64K on using the instructions found at adriel.co.nz/blog/2017/09/05/advancedtomato-on-the-linksys-ea6700

    This is my first foray into third party router firmware, started yesterday. Everything was fine yesterday, that I could tell, but I'm not sure anymore.

    Today I found out that it's not broadcasting the 2.4Ghz SSID. Looking at the Basic > Network settings, I can't see the settings for this band, only the 5Ghz. Going to Advanced Settings > Wireless, I only see the settings for 5Ghz as well. One google-found post was to ensure that the Region is set to United States (it is).

    On the Status > Overview page, it shows my two wireless networks, the guest Wireless (5 GHz / wl0.1) and the main Wireless (5 GHz / eth1).

    Everywhere I look, 2.4Ghz is missing, but I could have sworn it was there yesterday. This persists after a reboot as well.

    I'm not sure what I did wrong. Let me know which screenshots can help. And please let me know if this isn't the right place for this.

    There are no 2.4ghz sections anywhere in the GUI? Try clearing your browsers cache. If no change, go to Tools->System commands and run:

    ifconfig eth1
    Post output.

    Same thing happened here on my E2500.. after I figured out how to make 5ghz appear again by installing stock firmware, reset to factory defaults, then installing tomato. Still no luck until I did a 30/30/30 reset, the 5ghz band appeared. But, after setting up the tomato router from scratch, it disappeared again. Maybe, there's some issue with the hardware or it could be the firmware. I gave up and stick to 2.4ghz instead.

    Try pressing the reset button. In my Asus AC66U the 5.0 GHz session was not showing until I physically pressed the reset button.

    Its due to the nvram 32kb bug that exists in the CFE, you need to flash the custom CFE for the 6900 after altering the values for your device if you wish for this to not occur. I just did so over the holidays for a ea6500v2. Also I believe running v132 or earlier does not suffer from the issue, or is not as apparent as this only occurred when I updated past that build. Search for xvortex ea6900 custom CFE thread and it contains everything you need aside from the 6700 ddwrt images.
