I think bug 442 is universal across openwrt derived versions for the
last 5+ months. There is (no longer) any real difference between the
network stacks of cero and openwrt. I do think cero triggers it more
often by using adhoc mode, multiple wifi interfaces, and routing, and
I'd suggest to those using it to disable the guest and adhoc
interfaces entirely and see what happens. (definately kill adhoc
unless you are using it)


I too, despair. What I have been doing is developing means to saturate
links for long periods, take big packet captures, and for all that
I've only seen that bug 3 times, all 3 uncaptured. Yet others get it
all the time.

It is costing users hair, me time, and money I cannot spend on this
project, and hurting other efforts. I would have released a "stable"
version months ago if it wasn't for this.

I'll miss you if you leave! but if you had a stabler version that you
liked, you can regress to that - or by all means! give modern dd-wrt a
shot - it's got most of the core features cero has by now, and I
haven't tried it lately.
