– Hi, I have a router tplink 1043nd with openwrt and after 30 minutes, MiniDLNA disappears from devices.

Anyone can help

* openwrt trunk Dec 21, 2012

Not only minidlna.
if your computer have dlna server, it will also only appear for a couple minutes then gone.
then stop the server and start again, it will appear again, for a couple minutes.

I believe that is openwrt network problem, because I have a old build r2xxxx, that work nice with dlna/upnp services.

ps. don't just quote "trunk dec.21,2012", on that day, there are nearly 10 revisions.

Using AA RC1 should be OK.  After 30min can discovery MiniDLNA

Is there a ticket made about the problem?

I don't know, maybe not.
And maybe then old netifd or other network modules work fine in dlna, not just openwrt....

The current latest trunk r36529 seems good for DLNA !
dlna devices survive in the network, now it is already 50min after flashed this trunk.

ps. it is my own build, not yet available in openwrt download.

The discussion might have continued from here.
