I was wrong.

Downgrading OpenWRT on WRT3200ACM

Downgrading OpenWRT on WRT3200ACM

After I upgraded to OpenWRT 23.05.3, my Linksys WRT3200ACM WiFi router seems to interact poorly with my Dell E7470 laptop. It takes many tens of seconds for that laptop to acquire an IPv4 address via DHCP.

I decided to downgrade OpenWRT Linux on the router from 23.05.3 to 19.07.10. I believe it was running 19.07 before I started on my sysadmin journey of switching to a new server.

I’ve had an interest in accurate timekeeping and NTP, the Network Time Protocol for quite a while.

At one time or another over the years, I’ve run the original ntpd, xntpd, and OpenNTPD. I currently have the chrony NTP server running on my old server, to aggregate NTP needs on my home network.
