I have a problem.
I followed the procedure to install openwrt (stock layout).
But after step 3 and reboot, I no longer have SSH or telnet access.
And I no longer have access to the configuration web page.
Thank you and have a good day.
His WAN interface does have an IP that was given to it by DHCP on my network. (192.168.1.20)
There is no visible wifi network.
The LEDs are blue and fixed.
I tried to connect via SSH/TELNET/Web from the WAN side network (192.168.1.20), and from the LAN (192.168.31.1) without success. I did a scan on 192.168.31.XXX, 192.168.1.XXX and 192.168.0.XXX but I cannot see the router from the LAN.
You should have booted into OpenWrt initramfs, available in the LAN ports at 192.168.1.1 (use an IP from range 192.168.1.x in your computer). As the range in the WAN side is the same, disconnect WAN cable to avoid conflicts until you have finished installation.
Thank you @jav
This is one of the tests I did this morning (during the network scan), but I didn't have access.
By trying with another PC, I succeeded on 192.168.1.1 (problem with IP configuration on the other PC? One of my permanent routes causing a problem? I don't know, it's not a big deal for the moment)
Problem solved. Thank you.
Ideally you just pull that commit or download it as a patch and patch the code before you build the image. The issue I see is that the code you linked is for the 5.4 series of kernels but OW uses the 5.15 series so someone will have to see if it applies cleanly or tweak the files if not.
Hi, I created a new account just to come here and say thank you for the amazing work!
My network has never been better! Having a cheap device that has this much performance for this cheap being able to run OW is huge!
I know the support for this modem is still in "beta" but it's running rock solid for me and I didn't encounter any problems.
The install instructions could be improved on some points, specifically when to to use scp to send the files, how to enable the telnet client on windows and the fact that i had to use a python script to discover the ssh root password (could I have changed it in the telnet?), but otherwise it's very good already!
I feel that sometimes open sources dev can be very tiresome and lack incentives, so again, thank you so much! You're all awesome!
Have some floating problem with 5 GHz AP. 2.4 is OK.
Time to time it just disappears and cannot be connected to from any device.
Had this problem, touched nothing, it disappeared for a week (8 days no reboot and problems), today it came again w/o any actions and changes to settings.
Updated FW to fresh one, configured system through LuCi, WiFi worked. In several hours problem appeared again and "flickered" some times. While AP being inaccessible 5Ghz Channel Analysis may work or not, from time to time. Scanning for AP as client in Wireless section - always works and shows neighbours.
Probably HW issue / overheat? Too strange to be SW issue cuz it stops/starts working w/o any impact.
I live in RU, but use PA code and 20 dbm limit and legit frequencies. Band is fixed, not auto. Changing region to RU don't help. Either changing to 40/80 MHz.
So yes, near gigabit throughput is achievable with a pair of these $100 beasts. This is likely the best we'll see on the OEM open-source side until 802.11be, at which point it would make sense to go 2.5G.
Two of the three walls are concrete block so I think it's just my home. On my previous 2x2 80Mhz setup I was only able to get about 340 MB/s so this reaches 3/4 of the theoretical speed improvement, much better than I typically get from Wi-Fi advertising.
...but I'm not sure if they help or hinder WDS clients/servers and don't see much of a difference. iperf test is from a client to NanoPi R4S and both of my AX6000 APs are in dumb mode with firewall, dhcp, etc disabled.
Please use your own countries code for your radios.
Flashed update week ago, fresh-configured all stuff, and, despite already having tested it, set correct region (RU). During this week had several times of 5 GHz disappearing and appearing on it's own some time later (probably less than in hour).
Makes me think of HW issues...
No specific info in syslog/kernel, just "client disconnected". And none of my devices sees 5Ghz AP.
@981213 Is there any chance you can provide the exact syntax for setting the LED RGB colour in /etc/rc.local? I refer to here where you mentioned the RGB colour could be set to anything.
I am using command echo "94 220 25 1" > /sys/class/leds/rgb:status/multi_intensity for example which is clearly wrong. I have tried without quotes and with commas between the RGB components with no success. Basically I am unsure what the RGB format is. I'd like my LED strip to be a solid green colour when the router is up and running.
