I think the Deep Packet Inspection is cool story bro.
Right now even if I throw in a Intel i5 it might not perform DPI at gigabit speeds and you want me to believe Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 can do it?

Can I confirm on 2 things.

1. When is LACP support gonna come?
2. Where is NAT loopback option? How do we enable that?

Test from iPad. Only AC device at home.

iPad? Only AC device? I thought even the latest iPad Air don't support Wifi-AC yet.
