Just a pool to know which feature do you prefer to see in the next firmware.

If there isn't an option that you like write it in the comment.

I was able to find the netmask option, and select 255.255.0.0. I like to use last two octets not just one, and group devices based on the third. I allocate static ip for most of my devices. Since not many routers support two octet static ip setup, I use Synology NAS as my DHCP server. Can I have this feature in Almond+ please?  :)

Do you speak about the possibility to set the IP address of the wan statically with a custom netmask? This is possible in the firmware R065, in the web interface -> tile internet.

No, not WAN Firefox87. LAN! I do not like the regular 192.168.1.*, but instead use 10.1.*.* with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 (was happy to see Almond+ uses 10.10.10.*). This allows me to allocate memorable local addresses like 10.1.100.10 to my PC and 100.20 to wife's, 50.* to mobile devices, and so on (these are just examples). My ISP won't give me static IP without extra money, so thats on DHCP anyway. Still thanks for letting me know.

I just got my Almond+ installed. I Had to do a hard reset to be able to install the latest firmware from the browser interface.

One feature that is critical for me (and I had on my Linksys) is the capability of shutting off the WIFI broadcast automatically with internal time settings so that my kids do not stay glued on their devices after a certain time. Basically, set the times when the broadcast can happen. Does the Almond+ have this feature? I can't use it without it.

We're going to add parental control features, but they're not in place yet.

Random Touchscreen hack - have variable time outs.

Use it as a nightlight (set full color on etc)

maybe also have collectd/rrd graphs generated.

I'd like support for direct VPN connections so I can connect to my vpnreactor account so all machines inside the LAN are connected. On/Off control for this through the LCD-UI would be great.

Awesome, thanks Lars.
Parental controls with a system time broadcast shut off would be great. What would be really useful would be the ability to have different time controls for the live and guest networks; that way I can log my son's device on to the guest network and have that shut down at curfew without interrupting my access needs.

I think we're looking at setting up the parental control based on MAC address and day/time.
We're also considering an option to turn on/off Wi-Fi based on the same, so we'll see where we get to.

I really hope the LCD screen can display date/time, ultimate goal is display weather info.

Just make basic wireless networking functionality work up to a descent level of satisfaction, that should be the by far the top most priority for a router. For me networking is essential part of the package to work and HA is an add-on. And i believe this must be the case with most of us around who dare to buy still in beta product.

Its not fun to go and reboot the device every day just to get a better performance on the Wi-Fi and that sometimes does not solves the issue. I have replaced my existing router with almond+ (thank god i kept my existing HA controller as almond+ is still in beta).

Clearly Wi-Fi performance lets everything and all the good features or tobe good features DOWN......

Please... please first rectify the performance issues with Wi-Fi networking as that's the feature pretty much all the existing users currently using and want that to work flawlessly.
