	So, here I go: cerowrt 3.10.28-1, 16GB nexus7 wifi only (first generation, but not first batch, from just after the entry model was upgraded to 16GB) works fine on the 2.4GHz network with the following in config wifi-iface
        option mcast_rate '9000'
Since I also have no problems using ht40+ on channel 44, maybe it is related to my choice of "option country 'DE'" ?

Also working are a macbook and a macbook pro and two nexus 4s, no issues so far.

best regards
