Adding OpenWrt support for Xiaomi AX3600

Linux Kernel 5.10 (LTS) is now out, at lest that will give a more stable base for the ipq807x SoC changes.

Tho cant see anything that will help ath11k on this device :frowning:

I kind of doubt it, I gave 5.10 RC7 a go on IPQ6010 and the damn thing crashes as soon as ath11k is initialized, even worse it crashes without a stack trace.

No reply from the mailing list in over a week about ath11k issues.

Dam, I guess our only hope at this point is that more ipq807x devices that can be flashed get into the hands of devs.

Do you have the link to the mailing list thread ?

Yeah, more devices is the only hope.

Cheers, ill keep an eye on that thread.

Ill keep an eye out for more sub £150 IPQ807X devices (cant see anything at the moment).

The only thing I haven't tried (due to time) is seeing if the bdwlan files have changed in the international firmware

Looks like they are indeed different between the CN and INT firmwares.

For both CN and INT bdwlan.bin and bdwlan.b292 are the same. I tried a hex diff, but I don't see any meaningful patterns in the output

@Apache14 I have stumbled upon the following patch:

It would pretty much explain the lack of capabilities being advertised.
As with iw-full and without this patch I get the following:

So, we are still lacking VHT as a feature despite VHT rates and modulations it can do.
Unfortunately, altough kernel does not crash when VHT is enabled I dont see a signal at all.

I am now working on kernel 5.10 support as that will be the next OpenWrt kernel.
Its going mostly OK, but PCI has changed completely and that needs to be manually sorted out.
Unfortunately, I wont have time until after christmas when I am on vacation to do anything substantial.

@alllexx88 Do you maybe have the current bdwlan.292 from INT firmware?
I tried using the bdwlan.292 from 1.0.67 and it causes the remoteprocessor to crash.

Here's the one from INT 3.0.22:
bdwlan.b292-int-3.0.22.zip

Thanks, that one was crashing as well.
But after trying couple of ath11k firmware versions it seems that 2.4.0.1-r2 does not crash.
Nah, it crashed the second time around.

Hi, unfortunately i never got that promised AX6 (shipment issues)

But i have a Netgear WAX610 (IPQ6010) for further experiments here :wink:

I have to define a new target for that with robimarkos repo (AX3600-v5.10) first.

I'll keep you posted.

ath11k does not work on IPQ6k at all, it simply crashes the kernel after initialisation.

This is strange, I'm wondering with what kernel version the ath11k developers are working and why no one else has those crashes ?

btw: an image from this repo (combination of 19.07 + qsdk kernel 4.4 + ath11k + hostapd 5.7 inkl. patches) works pretty good on the wax610 including setting of the board_id in the DTS and VHT / HE modes:

TIP uses 4.4.60 kernel from Qualcomm, so it's not really relevant.
From what I see ath11k is usually tested on QCA6390 and IPQ8074 in the commits.

How did you tested ath11k on the IPQ6k?

As far as i could see, even in kernel 5.10 there is only base support of the soc in the dts files. But the wifi nodes for example are missing (or am I missing something?)

We have an internal tree with more stuff supported on our distribution as we only run mainline kernels.
Its waiting working WLAN to be started to upstream.

Sounds good, thanks.

Oh my, this worked great with AX6 :smiley: Thank you very much.

Just one thing: You said to change the GATEWAY to 169.254.31.1, it didn't work by just changing the gateway. I had to change the router lan ip as well to the same 169.254.31.1.

For some reason the xqsystem.lua file didn't work in the first time (the whole LuCI was unstable). After some reboots (in the second router) I was able to get it to work :slight_smile:

By the way, is there a way to have SSH permanently?

Sorry, I meant the router's LAN IP address (not too well versed in networking terms).

For SSH persistence, the method for AX3600 works on the AX6.

I have included codeaurora package qca-ssdk and qca-nss-dp, the ethernet port showed, but there is no traffic.
