Latest version (31800) fails

Latest version (31800) fails for a very specific case for us on an R6400.  Cisco VoIP phone model SPA525G2 does not get a DHCP response back, for some reason.  It also fails on 31500.  Downgrading to 31205 works fine.

This is with a pretty generic configuration with no VLAN or other "weird" networking configuration.

Looks like you're seeing the same problem we are (maybe).  Cisco VoIP phone doesn't get a proper DHCP response back from the router.  Downgrading to 31205 worked for us.

I have a Netgear AC1450

I have a Netgear AC1450 running DD-WRT v3.0-r31160M kongac (01/18/17) downloaded from MyOpenRouter.  Is it safe to install this March 2017 Kong Mod? Or should I wait for a specific Kong Mod for the AC1450?

I cannot change the SSID name.  It stays at dd-wrt.  Is there a way to make the name change permanent?
