Ooooooo....will test as soon as I get a chance. Quick question....why does this only effect the R7000 (and maybe R6250/R6300V2) and not the Asus RT-AC68U (or other ARM routers)? Also, why would having the router in AP mode only not have the ping issue (at least on mine) in respect to the commands that you posted? Finally, would these changes effect reboot speed? Seemed to take much less time rebooting than normal on my RT-AC68U (maybe just in my head though)? Oh, and again, thanks for all you guys do. It is appreciated and amazing!!!
