I don't think your current problem is related to the fact that you're
running v2.25.

OK, but you said that when the problem happens, they can still get to
the remote VPN subnets. So this 'ping' check would still be
*working*, and thus fail to detect the problem?

Or did I misunderstand, and your 'reconnect script' isn't actually
solving the problem with the 192.168.1.x hosts on the wireless not being
able to talk to each other? Except that when it *happens* to trigger
because the VPN goes down, that somehow solves the (unrelated?) wlan

It sounds like this is an OpenWRT routing problem. If hosts on your
*wireless* cannot see each other, that really shouldn't be anything to
do with openconnect. If restarting openconnect 'fixes' it then that
really makes me suspect the routing setup, because that's all that
openwer will really change. So I'll need to see those routing tables in
all three cases.
