Updated my desktop computer (Ryzen 5 + 16gb RAM) and my mighty Asus X205T laptop  with an Atom 133mhz CPU and a whopping 2GB of RAM.

Both are now running SmartSDR 2.1.33 and the installation was smooth and uneventful on both. Needless to say SmartSDR runs perfectly on the Ryzen 5 desktop hooked into my network by cat 5 cable while the under-powered Asus works pretty good most of the time over my "not the greatest" wifi router hihi

Also, after going to v2.1.33, I was able to setup SmartLink and it seems to be working.  I will test it at a friends house in the next week or so.  I don't plan to do much SmartLink operation but wanted it set up and ready just in case.

Anyhow ... been real pleased with the new Flex 6400.  Seems to run cooler and quieter than the Flex 6300.  I have had no hardware problems and the only software problem I had was trying to set up SmartLink - and that problem was solved with v2.1.33 release.

I am definitely a happy camper :-)

Thanks Flex guys + gals!

I am surprised re your comments of the Asus router. I have three RT-AC88U's and one at my remote site. The OpenVPN works fabulously with the routers as well as their new firmware upgrade to configure the router as part of a mesh network with 4 antennas  per node. I walk all over the house and in the yard and have perfect control of my 6500 located 100 miles away using my iPhone and iPad. Don't think I have ever used a finer router than Asus nor a finer radio than the Flex.

The under powered Asus I referred to was my Asus X205T laptop.   I did not mention what make or model router I had.
