Netgear R9000 Nighthawk X10 DD-WRT Optimized WiFi Settings

After much researching and tweaking I was finally able to get my wireless settings optimized for this Netgear monster and on par with the signal levels of the stock closed-source firmware.

I started my search with what the FlashRouters folks recommend but their settings do not even touch on the advanced settings.

Next, I discovered the recommended QCA Wireless Settings which were much better and got me most of the way there.

See below for the optimized settings I settled on to get the best signal quality (please use zoom to see the settings).
