Askey RAC2V1K / RT4230W REV6 Support

So I started with a stock version of the latest 22.03 snapshot and flash via luci. It booted but no LAN or WAN, the port lights are on and show activity though. Both 2.4 and 5G radios are functioning and I can connect to both but again no internet. Here is the boot log.

Included some changes for the rt4230w that should properly enable NSS hardware offloading. Let me know how it works. :sunglasses:

Here is the link for the sysupgrade file:

Thanks! If I don't get to it sooner, I will test it this weekend and report back.

Will router have working ethernet port in this build? I have tried RT4230W-REV6-20220516-Stable2203-ath10k-sysupgrade.bin and RT4230W-REV6-20220516-Stable2203-sysupgrade.bin in your openwrt-22.03-nss-qsdk10.0 branch several days ago. My computer could not grab an IP address, and upon connecting it to serial console, I found that br-lan interface is not present and can never be brought up. The router is working find in the the official 22.03 RC1 build. Thank you!

The ipq8065.dtsi changes are probably conflicting with the .dts file. Let me make another tweak.

Flashed your RT4230W-REV6-20220515-MasterNSS-ath10k-sysupgrade from luci using the latest 22.03-snapshot and again no network but the log goes two lines further.

@127.0.0.1 @dadogroove Today's Master build has changes directly to the rt4230w-rev6 .dts file. Let me know if that does the trick.

So the wifi works but no ethernet port connectivity, LAN or WAN although the port lights are functioning. Attached is a picture of the network devices section which has missing mac addresses.

Step in the right direction. The relevant section is at the bottom of this patch. Any suggestions (I don’t have this device and can’t test any changes - but if we can figure out these sections, should be able to get hardware offloading working)?

My .dts here is running well for my RT4230W, albeit it is for openwrt-21.02 that's based on the 5.4 kernel. It should not differ too much, if at all, for 5.10.

Here's the stock .dts in case it helps at all

I won't lie, this is a bit above my pay grade. But looking at the .dts from @lmore377 compared to the one from @ACwifidude, I noticed this:

one from @lmore377

ethernet@37000000 {
			device_type = "network";
			compatible = "qcom,nss-gmac";
			reg = <0x37000000 0x200000>;
			interrupts = <0x00 0xdc 0x04>;
			phy-mode = "rgmii";
			qcom,id = <0x00>;
			qcom,pcs-chanid = <0x00>;
			qcom,phy-mdio-addr = <0x00>;
			qcom,poll-required = <0x01>;
			qcom,rgmii-delay = <0x01>;
			qcom,emulation = <0x00>;
			qcom,forced-speed = <0x3e8>;
			qcom,forced-duplex = <0x01>;
			qcom,socver = <0x00>;
			local-mac-address = [00 00 00 00 00 00];
			mdiobus = <0x25>;
		};

		ethernet@37200000 {
			device_type = "network";
			compatible = "qcom,nss-gmac";
			reg = <0x37200000 0x200000>;
			interrupts = <0x00 0xdf 0x04>;
			phy-mode = "sgmii";
			qcom,id = <0x01>;
			qcom,pcs-chanid = <0x01>;
			qcom,phy-mdio-addr = <0x04>;
			qcom,poll-required = <0x00>;
			qcom,rgmii-delay = <0x00>;
			qcom,emulation = <0x00>;
			qcom,forced-speed = <0x3e8>;
			qcom,forced-duplex = <0x01>;
			qcom,socver = <0x00>;
			local-mac-address = [00 00 00 00 00 00];
			mdiobus = <0x25>;

the reg = 0x370 & 0x372

one from @ACwifidude:

+ &gmac1 {
+	compatible = "qcom,nss-gmac";
+	reg = <0x37200000 0x200000>;
+	interrupts = <GIC_SPI 223 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+	qcom,pcs-chanid = <0>;
+	qcom,phy_mii_type = <0>;
+	qcom,emulation = <0>;
+	qcom,forced-speed = <1000>;
+	qcom,forced-duplex = <1>;
+	qcom,socver = <0>;
+	qcom,irq = <255>;
+	mdiobus = <&mdio0>;
+ };
+
+ &gmac2 {
+	compatible = "qcom,nss-gmac";
+	reg = <0x37400000 0x200000>;
+	interrupts = <GIC_SPI 226 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+	qcom,pcs-chanid = <1>;
+	qcom,phy_mii_type = <1>;
+	qcom,emulation = <0>;
+	qcom,forced-speed = <1000>;
+	qcom,forced-duplex = <1>;
+	qcom,socver = <0>;
+	qcom,irq = <258>;
+	mdiobus = <&mdio0>;
+ };	

the reg = lines are 0x372 & 0x374.

At the bottom of this patch is this section

phy4: ethernet-phy@4 {
+		reg = <4>;
+		qca,ar8327-initvals = <

+			0x000e4 0x6a545     /* MAC_POWER_SEL */

+			+			>;
+	};

In the original from lmore377 and from github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/master/target/linux/ipq806x/files/arch/arm/boot/dts/qcom-ipq8065-rt4230w-rev6.dts, it looks like this

qca,ar8327-initvals = <
			
			0x000e4 0xaa545     /* MAC_POWER_SEL */
			
			>;

Not sure if that's anything, just an observation looking over the files.

@ACwifidude I noticed your RT4230W .dts file’s gmac entry compatible value is set to the kernel’s driver. The nss-gmac driver will not take over and NSS acceleration will not take effect.
