Went back to firmware version V1.0.2.46.

 

The device names came back.

 

I'll be happy when the interns stop writing the firmware updates.

Use the search, there are a few threads about it. Basically, known problem that needs to be fixed by NG

I also get horrible bufferbloat with 52 that is not present with 46. I 've swapped back and forth and can easily reporduce the reults. So, for now, I've reverted back to 46. I can't believe how bad 52 is overall.
