Add support for D-Link COVR-X1860

@RolandoMagico how can I update the 2. AP.
This Version is up and running:
OpenWrt SNAPSHOT, r23604-7e0d9fe280

Last time I use your latest sysupgrade no mesh image and upload this over the webinterface. After the reboot the device was not accesible.

Do you mean you flashed the image mentioned here:

Or is it a different topic?

no this was the last what I did :wink:
First I did an update over the web interface and lost the connection to the device
Then I press the reset sw and connect with ssh to default ip. Web Interface was not working.

After this I put the image file with winscp to the tmp folder and did the sysupgrade. Rest you know...

I don't know what's going wrong in your case. Until now, there was nobody who had the same issue. There shouldn't be issues when flashing the sysupgrade image via OpenWrt web interface.
Alternatively, you can try to flash the recovery image via recovery web interface (now you know how to do it :smile:).

In the end it's the same image which is running on the device.

If you face the same problem again, the serial output may be interesting.

I have only remote access to this device.
What are the settings to connect to the serial interface and how to power the AP?

For UART, I think this are the pins:


You need RX, TX and GND. Probably 115200, 8N1, 3.3V
What do you mean with "how to power the AP"?

Connect only tx,rx and ground + Poweradapter or
only use uart with vcc, gnd, tx and rx?

Connect only RX, TX and GND on UART. Do not connect VCC on UART.
Power is supplied with the normal power supply

Hmm oryginal software 640mb~ openwrt 300~ wifi

@RolandoMagico mmh I maybe found my problem, I is the config. I want to use this as a dump ap. So I removed all firewall rules and also disable the firewall service. After sysupgrade, the firewall is on with no rules and block any incoming. When I stop the firewall Service, the ap is accessible again.
Also backup and restore has the same problem, the service config is not restort, all service again up and runing after restore, or sysupgrade.

The services coming back up after a sysupgrade is more or less expected. A more permanent solution can be found here: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/dumbap#disable_daemons_persistently

I guess the restore goes through a very similar path, so this might also help in that case.

With your all-kmods archive it worked flawlessly. Thank you so much, sometimes I forget the simplest things just because I'm used to use the package managers with all it's comfort.

I did install wire guard and I will test it tonight. Hopefully the VLANs are working, than I can build my big wifi network.

I read WDS wifi with fast Roaming is the best? All my Accesspoints are hard wired. I just want to have one big wifi with multiple APs and the client can pick its best on its own.

Ok fix lan speed now is 900mb/s but wifi 330mb/s only

If all of your access points are hardwired, you won't need WDS - that's really only required if one of them has no Ethernet uplink.

How are you testing this speed? Within your network or is this an internet speed test?

What does your WiFi setup currently look like, are your channels crowded?

Sorry, again a noob question from me:

Can I force opkg to use a different version? I installed all kmod packages for wireguard. That worked fine with your provided packages. After that I wanted to install the luci and wireguard tools and I ran into errors (I need a newer Kernel version for the packages):

Description
WireGuard is a novel VPN that runs inside the Linux Kernel and utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPSec, while avoiding the massive headache. It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard is designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and super computers alike, fit for many different circumstances. It uses UDP.

The installed version of package kernel is not compatible, require 5.15.125-1-0f0db065… while 5.15.123-1-7c335438… is installed.

Except that VLANs are working and it seems it could replace my main router.

Not sure if forcing installation is a good idea. As far as I remember there were posts in the forum recommending not to do that.
Building an image with all the required packages is probably the better option.

Nah, I don't force that installation if there is a warning. :wink:

I just configured all my settings via SSH and without luci, also worked fine. So I will just skip that package. So VPN is working now. Thanks!
