I've been following this thread for the past week or so, and would like to add my thanks to all involved for their great work. I currently have one of the 3.18.1 builds running on my router, and I'm having a couple of issues.

1. Whenever I enable the second radio (radio1), it drops from Master to Client regardless of how I have it configured (2.4/5, N/AC, narrow/wide channels, different/same SSID as radio0). Is there anything specific I should check why this is occurring?

2. DHCPv6-PD doesn't work across the PPPoE WAN link, is there a specific package I'm missing, or configuration I should check?

It's been a few years since I dug into OpenWRT, but am looking forward to it again.

@Kaloz

Any reads that could help me get better at understanding the packages or networking? big_smile


Thank You

Can any one post samba / ftp transfer speed results ? I'm tempted to pick this router up this weekend mainly because of its looks and CPU muscle for NAS purpose.

Have a 4TB drive GPT/ext4 partition connected to the router via USB3 port. File transfer speed to and from my win7 desktop via samba is about 60MB/s. I think the speed is enough for a NAS.

However having issues when transfering large amount of data. Sometimes if i copy 100GB or so, after a while the router hangs, goes completely dumb, wifi and lan connection goes down, cant connect via ssh either. Have to manually switch off and restart it.

Not bad indeed. Another question:
There are two versions. v1.0 and v1.1. What's the difference? is the latter supported?

I'm not working on the wifi driver now, just collect bugreports for Marvell to poke at wink

If you narrow the question down a bit I might be able to answer smile

Test image up on https://downloads.openwrt.org/people/ka … apshot.img.

New:

- pptp and openvpn support
- cpu power management (dynamic frequency scaling and cpuidle)
- swconfig support (vlans)

You can check the current cpu frequencies (yes, the two cores scale independently) via

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq

Included is the "stress" utility, you can either increase the load for a minute on one of the cores with

stress --cpu 1 --timeout 60

or on both with

stress --cpu 2 --timeout 60

And of course, "sensors" will let you monitor the temps.

Thank you~~~

Here is the download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/radi20jettd86 … 9.img?dl=0

After go my home, I will applied my router.

Thank you. :-)

Great. swconfig support. I will test it later when I arrive home.
The swconfig as gui configurable (Luci) or is only on cli?

can someone who is doing the current go to build include this patch so the overlay pivot system will work...

https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=54138

with  Kaloz build there isnt room to install gcc, yet its offered as a package?  i dont get it

im going to try and build, but guaranteeing i am going to have issues...

Another img u can use is this one: https://downloads.openwrt.org/people/ka … pshot.img.

It's from Kaloz, which means it's good smile

Hello again,

again a great thanks to all who are working on a openwrt version for the 1900ac!

I have - perhaps a stupid - question: Does any image support multiwan?

I tried to install it on McWrt 1.0.5 (yes I should update) but it fails because packages for kmod-ipt-conntrack and kmod-ipt-core are not available. When I try to build build from git I can't select them in menueconfig.

Is there any way to get this (or similar) to work? (perhaps multiwan is not correct?!?!)

For clarification of the use case:
The router is build into a emergency control vehicle. If the car is in the garage it gets internet via LAN. When the car has no outside LAN connection it should switch autocratically to the LTE Stick and back to LAN if LAN is connected.

Best

I'm willing to patch my image if you can help me understand how to patch smile

I installed a recent lifehacksback 3.18.1 build, but my radio range has dropped to almost non existent.  I originally had the initial AA version of OpenWRT that was released when the router first came out and that has been working fine.

Did I miss a step?  Wired connections work fine.

Great work...!!

I have been tested, openvpn is well working.
pptp is not worked.
It is my mistake.

pptp server need package (pptpd, kmod-pptp)
current img is not included pptpd.

Thank you...

Well, I have no idea why would you want to compile natively, but I would deboostrap Debian/Ubuntu on an external esata/usb drive and chroot myself there.

@Kaloz

could you send me ur .config? smile

Thank You

Updated the image with that as well.

There's nothing extra in there, but uploaded it to the same directory.

I flashed this one directly from another trunk version and kept the configs.
The status now is that the LAN led turns on, but I get no dhcp.
any ideas how to fix it ?

Thanks
