Dec Firmware - ExpressVPN

Dec Firmware - ExpressVPN OpenVPN configuration did not work for me.

With Jun firmware - ExpressVPN configuration did work - like a charm. However, speed is quite slow both on wired and wireless (much higher if directly installed on the laptop).

I finally got the Jun firmware working after doing 'erase nvram' and 'reboot' after the flash. All radios working fine. Earlier the 5 GHz radios were always off and I even if I renamed them, it sitll showed up as ddwrt on wifi networks.
