Topic: Netgear R8000 support?

The content of this topic has been archived between 23 Mar 2018 and 5 May 2018. Unfortunately there are posts – most likely complete pages – missing.

Dear Developers,

Have you got any stable OpenWrt build for R8000 we as a regular users can load?
Thanks a lot for your help as I still have a lot of issues with DD-WRT and hope some of the were addressed in OpenWrt build

My Best Regards and Thanks

Agreed, DD-WRT on the R8000 is horrible, had to go back to stock.

@ developers, Openwrt would be great. I became immersed in Openwrt for the WRT1900AC and it's awesome!

Seems to have gone quiet on the development front? Any more progress on this Raven/muleman/zajec?

Recently I discovered my Netgear R6250 has not port 5 connected to eth0 but also port 7 connected to eth1. So there is a chance R6250 uses the same hardware setup and there is port 8 connected to eth2. I was playing with it for a bit, unfortunately I wasn't able to get it working. Not sure if it was because port 8 being not connected, or if I indeed hit the same issue you do with R8000.

I'll do few more tests, most likely over the weekend. I'll also try my other bcm53xx device that also may be ports 7 and 8 connected.

Mostly, there's work to be done on nvram handling to send configuration to the wireless.
I'm not sure what to do about that so I'm waiting to see if someone makes progress on it.

There's the switch configuration port usage which has become a hassle although it can be made to work.

I also noticed that iwinfo (and probably iw but I didn't look at that) doesn't return needed information about the wireless devices so
there's no status information about the wireless devices pretty much at all.

It's kinda hard to work out where to look to check what's going on with that and I haven't devoted any time to it in a while now.

The wireless does seem to function though.

I think you missed https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset/45931/

I did, I'll need to catch up with what's happening.

Anyone looked at the patch for handling the PEX8603 I posted some time ago?
Without it the device map is a bit of a mess and it stands alone IIRC.

Is anyone still working on this?

A little, I haven't yet been able to get time to complete updating my simple patches and build an image (as I said I need to do in the comment above).

Hopefully this weekend.

@ raven-au

That's awesome news !

Another image for DD-WRT was posted July 5 on "OpenRouter" by Tathagata, if anyone is interested. I haven't tried it yet, waiting for feedback on the forums, it has been downloaded 90 times so far though.

I would much prefer OpenWrt..................

@ mojolacerator

I have used the Tathagata DD-WRT 27XX build.

As with all DD-WRT Builds for the R8000 there are extensive problems with the Radio Settings, especially the second 5Ghz radio.  The Tathagata build is much worse for radio management and essentially makes the 5Ghz radios useless.

I have been using the R8000 as an access point behind another router acting as edge gateway.  R8000 is strictly a LAN AP.  Having the Radios work as designed is crucial.  When the stock firmware from Netgear is loaded the Radios are awesome.  My coverage and throughput has increased by 10 times my previous "N" based AP.  In places where I was getting 20 Mbps I am getting 200 Mbps.  With "AC" 2 X 2 MIMO I can see nearly 600 Mbps throughput from device to device.  I do not have any 3 X 3 devices so I can't say what they might be capable of.  Most client devices are using 2 X 2 still and do not have a 3rd antenna.  Maximum connection throughput for 2 X 2 VHT is 867 Mbps.

Unfortunately the Netgear stock firmware sucks for anything else.  I cannot segment Guest network to VLAN's and provide separate DHCP per VLAN running on edge router.  I can do this on the DD-WRT Builds as long as I do not use the WAN port as the VLAN trunk.  Some Quirky issue with VLAN trunking on WAN Port.  Kong was looking into this.

The DD-WRT builds have been stable and functional except for the Radio management and the VLAN trunking on WAN Port and several quirky Web GUI issues.

I would love to see OpenWrt on this device as well.  It would seem the underlying H/W especially the WiFi radios are pretty awesome, when tweaked and optimized.  It also seems that OpenWrt and DD-WRT have great options for the network capabilities.

Hopefully we can get a fully optimized OpenWrt system that has awesome core network capabilities as well as awesome radio optimization.

I have just tried Tathagata DD-WRT 27XX build. All I can say to anyone is, in my recent experience, be VERY careful. Radios are quite Wonky. I have gone back to the March 7 - KONG build for my R8000. It is the main gateway and It runs very well(all 3 radios). One of my ap's is an R7000 running mainline DD-WRT, it's two radios are running the same ssid's as the 2.4ghz radio and one of the 5ghz radios on the R8000, and they work together very well.

That being said, I would jump all over an Openwrt Image !

oh well, Kong is working on releasing a newer DD-WRT version, guess that will have to suffice.

The open source drivers will always progress very slowly without source from Broadcom. Don't hold your breath here. DD-WRT with closed source drivers will always be ahead in this regard. If you really want to use OpenWrt, I strongly suggest you get something that's already supported. Otherwise, you may be waiting forever.

oh well, for anyone interested, Kong posted a new build for R8000 : http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/

I know that is off topic, but considering it is the only real alternative software for the R8000, it kind of applies.

For anyone brave enough to update the firmware with a homebuild version. Here is a little howto. On Jul 30 I did this exercise myself to build the R8000 OpenWrt firmware from scratch. As usual this is all at your own risk. If you brick your device then that is your own problem.

==============================================
Preparing your system for Build:

http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/buildroot.exigence

sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion git-core libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev gawk flex quilt libssl-dev xsltproc libxml-parser-perl mercurial bzr ecj cvs unzip

==============================================

Get OpenWRT sources and configure:

git clone git://git.openwrt.org/openwrt.git
{ This created a directory openwrt }

cd openwrt
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a

make defconfig
make prereq
make menuconfig
{
--> Target System, select Select Broadcom BCM47xx/53xx (ARM)
--> Kernel Modules --> Wireless Drivers --> kmod-b43 (deselect)
--> Kernel Modules --> Wireless Drivers --> kmod-brcmutil --> Broadcom wireless driver debugging (select)
--> LuCI --> Collections --> luci (select *)
}
- Now edit one file:
target/linux/bcm53xx/base-files/etc/board.d/02_network --> Remove the following 3 lines:

netgear,r8000)
    ifname=eth2
    ;;

And remove the following 4 lines:

elif echo "$vlan1ports" | egrep -q "^0 1 2 3 5 7 8" && \
     echo "$vlan2ports" | egrep -q "^4 8"; then
    ucidef_add_switch_vlan "switch0" "1" "0 1 2 3 5 7 8t"
    ucidef_add_switch_vlan "switch0" "2" "4 8t"

make

dont use -j the first time and wait, this will take a long time as all packages are pulled in. When this is finished there should be a file called: bin/bcm53xx/openwrt-bcm53xx-netgear-r8000-squashfs.chk, but we are not done yet !!.
After the first make the b53 switch code has to be updated. The reason is that the patches applied by openwrt are not finalized yet. Reverting the patch (in combination with the change done to the 02_network file, done earlier) will make the switch work, though it might use an incorrect mac address and the wan port might not work (haven't tried it). NOTE: if you don't do this step then ethernet/switch wont work and the device will not be usable and can only be updated through CFE.
Restore original switch code, as new one is not ready yet, this cp command will revert the patch which has been applied to the b53 driver, which is not working for the moment, this cp command is based of the Jul 30 checkout. Directories will change over time, make sure the command was successful:

cp target/linux/generic/files/drivers/net/phy/b53/b53_common.c build_dir/target-arm_cortex-a9_musl-1.1.10_eabi/linux-bcm53xx/linux-3.18.19/drivers/net/phy/b53/b53_common.c

{ Final build, to take reverted switch code in: }
make { shouldn't take that long anymore, but you can use -j to speed it up }

==============================================

Flashing the image:

Upload the file bin/bcm53xx/openwrt-bcm53xx-netgear-r8000-squashfs.chk. This can be done through the WEB-GUI of the original firmware.

Note: the default ip address of the router will be 192.168.1.1. Try browsing to this address and configure the router.
Note: Sometimes one of the wifi devices can get in a bad state (during configuration). When this happens the router can end up in endless reboot loop. In that case you'll have to power down the R8000 and power it up again. Work is in progress for this and we hope to release a patch soon which will fix this.
Note: Don't forget to set the country code for the wifi devices. It is very important if you want to use 5G devices.
Final NOTE: there should be three wifi devices available. The first one is 5G, the second 2.4g and the last is also 5G. The first 5G should be used on the higher frequencies. The second 5G should be used for the lower 5G frequencies. Failing to do so will make the radios perform quite bad.

In close range and with good clients you should be able to get more then 600Mbps throughput over the wireless.

If everything went successful you should always be able to switch to the original Netgear firmware through the WEB-GUI if desired.

Again; No guarantee whatsoever. This is at your own risk !!!

The firmware works.  LAN ports, the 2 5G radios and 2.4G radio.  Had to set country code as you stated and reboot but the 5G radios came on.  Using wifi N client so have not tested AC.  Compiles as stated. 
Configured using LUCI.  Still lose the 5G radios after reconfiguring and need to reboot but can connect afterward.

Good work!

Could someone with a R8000 please run lspci or cat /proc/bus/pci/devices on the original firmware and post the result.

Gah.... I would like to help but just installed DDWRT on mine. Didn't seem like there was going to be a usable build of openwrt anytime soon.

So there appears to be an r8000 build of chaos calmer... Anyone tried it yet?

Just signed up to say whoever made the build at https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_cal … x/generic/ is a bloody legend, so far it seems to be working pretty well, I'll do some more testing with wifi and confirm all is working well and post back with an update in a few days.

Progress is looking good enough that I'm going to pick one up and give it a go, especially since it's on sale right now...

One question until I can get my own fired up... can anyone confirm that the full 256MB ram is detected and supported by the OpenWRT build?
