Ath79 builds with all kmod packages through opkg [flow offloading]


#203

I've never said never.
As the stuff for mach file based devices exist it shouldn't be that hard, but i don't need control over the switch leds... And i think it eats up some cpu cycles if they are not controlled by the switch itself for indicating port traffic.

@Vulpix You only want to disable it?
This should be easy possible with other init vals for the switch led ctrl registers.


#204

I didn't look deep but I think they are controlled by the switch itself. To control the leds we write to swich registers.

Even if that is true, it's nothing.


#205

Not if they are registered as led device, because no one want concurrent acces to the leds...

Never say nothing :wink:


#206

Yeah I just want to turn all of them off. I know the router is working and I prefer to not have 999 blinking lights in my room :smiley: If it's simple to do, I'd be very happy if you could tell me how!

Thanks!


#207

Very simple, see LinkSys WRT1900ACS disable all LEDs

:slight_smile:


#209

Will OpenWRT ath97 branch support Netgear R6100?
Specification:

  • Atheros AR9344
  • 128 MB of RAM
  • 128 MB of Flash
  • 4x 10/100 Ethernet
    Also Netgear released a GPL source pack for this router, wonder if this helps.

#210

There is no reason why it wouldn't be supported by ath79 in the future (conceptually it looks very similar to the tl-wdr3600/4300, just with a 802.11ac 5 GHz wlan card instead of 802.11n), but like for all other devices that have already been ported from ar71xx to ath79, it needs someone with the actual hardware on the desk to work on it (and predictions about when (or if) someone turns their attention to it aren't possible).

Unfortunately it is not possible to mass-convert ar71xx mach files to ath79 and device tree in an automated fashion, without looking at- and testing on the actual hardware.

Hey @juppin i've tried the build, it works but i still only get 300 mbps on archer c7 v2 with the offloading set, but with the regular firmware i can get close to a gigabit speeds, you have any ideas?


#213

Same here @sycohexor. Actually I'm getting even lower speeds as I'm seeing ~260 Mbits/sec on WiFi connections. My setup is like this:

Edge Router X <> TP Link C7 v2 <> Laptop on AC connection

iperf3 -s is running on the Edge Router X and I'm connecting to it with a few different wireless devices to get a sample size.


#214

It’s not just wireless for me it’s wired, I run iperf on the router and iperf on my laptop, 300 mbps is what it tops out at


#215

Well, with this setup you will not have any improvement with flow offloading! No routing/nat involved...
I suggest you haven´t tested it this way with factory fw? I don´t think you have iperf running on tp link´s fw.

Your test environment should be:
computer (should have a bit horse power) <> [wan] c7v2 [lan] <> computer (should have a bit horse power)

Iperf is a bit heavy on cpu! So if you want to benchmark the routing/nat throughput of a low powered router device, you should not run any cpu heavy stuff on this device.

My WDR3600 does reach about 190 MBit/s over wifi with flow offloading:
notebook [wifi: intel 8260] <> [5g wifi] wdr3600 [wan] <> my server

About 920 MBit/s over lan with flow offloading:
notebook [realtek XXXX] <> [lan] wdr3600 [wan] <> my server


#216

@juppin Wan port issues on WNDR should be fixed now in master. The patches have been committed.
Also wireless speed issues on ar7100 are gone with my patch.

#218

Thanks My TPlink wdr4300 use now 4.14.63, you update 4.14.67. Need update me?


#219

There was an vulnerability in the kernel (ddos) that is fixed with 4.14.66 and some vulnerabilities in the wireless implementation if i'm right. Also dropbear (ssh server) was was affected by a vulnerability. You should consider to update to the latest build.
Stability and performance should be the same as with the older build for your wdr4300.


#220

Tnx i now update. How all leds off? plz make manual. I install MC not work correct.


#221

Sorry, the switch leds are not controllable at the moment. Use a black tape as described above...

What is MC?


#222

Midnight Commander =MC


#223

Keep in mind that most of the wireless code is provided by the mac80211 package (backports), which replaces the kernel's own wireless drivers (so any updates/ fixes there are not directly reflected in the mac80211/ backports variant).
