I moved California. More about that on another post.
Since then, I’ve (well, we’ve) had wifi problems, specifically ones emergent of what I consider to be some terrible MIMO radios. Periodically, our router [Netgear WNDR3700] would dump everyone on the 5GHz band, and disable the radio for some 20 minutes. This turned out to not be a software issue, as openWRT did not solve the problem.
This was my solution; I figured it was worth sharing.
Don’t tell the FCC, but our house now has a 1W wireless N connection. ∎
