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


#244

juppin, you stopped updating this great community build for a while. Though I am happy with it with my Archer C7 v2 so far, would you please continue updating it once a while?

Anyway, I am greatly appreciated for your great effort.


#245

i made a simple bash script that explains the procedure for building an image

#248

Thanks for the new build, however I cannot access LuCi with https anymore, ssh works perfect.

Edit: Never mind, I might have forgotten that LuCi is configured to be accessed through http instead, if there's no problem for others.


#249

Yes i removed also luci-ssl because it will save a lot of space...
If you need it, simply install luci-ssl with opkg or from Software within luci.

If i should include more packages in my default build, feel free to post your desired packages and i'll consider to add it on the next build.


#250

Hi @juppin
I already tested recent 4.14 snapshots from Openwrt trunk in a WDR3600 with good results. ( 800 Mb/s LAN-WAN )
I'm looking for some tests using a Ubiquiti Routerstation Pro ( AR7161@720MHz and separated WAN eth0 and LAN eth1 RAM 128MB Flash 16MB ).
Could the Routerstation Pro be included in the next build ? Thanks in advance.


#251

Hey @juppin, great work! just updated my Archer C7 v2 from an older LEDE image, and it worked smoothly. Just had to do some tweaking on wireless interfaces and dns. Only 15 minutes of downtime! (I was dumb enough to start the update while my kids were watching netflix.. they timed it for me with minutely updates on how much I was ruining their day.. :P)


#252

Sorry for the newbie question here.

I have an Archer C7 v2 (EU) router and would love to try Openwrt/LEDE. Just have a couple of question I would appreciate some feedback on:

  • What are the downsides when compare to stock firmware - I saw this
    ' _s: The 802.11ac WLAN↔LAN throughput of Archer C7 2.0 with OpenWrt Chaos Calmer RC3 was measured to be substantially lower than that of the native firmware. (450 to 500Mbps with OpenWrt vs. 750 to 800Mbps with native firmware' Is this still the case with this build?

  • Hardware NAT isn't support but Flow Offloading mitigates this?

BTW I have a 80Mbs Fibre Connection, so I am assuming that the Hardware NAT isn't going to be much of an issue anyway

My main priority is that the hardwired PC doesn't suffer lower connection speed and that current wireless range isn't impacted

Thanks very much for info

Hello everyone...sorry for the newwbie question. I have TPLink 2543 and connect to the internet by L2TP. What packages i need install for my l2tp connection?

Thanks @juppin for the Routerstation Pro release.
Will test it this weekend.


#256

One little glitch when trying to download the upgrade package via wget in ssh, basically it won't download due to the url is https. I have to manually change the url to http instead.


#257

I'm still on kernel version 4.14.54.

Are there any material gains by upgrading? How can I know if major things have changed for a specific model?


#258

Normally i do a redirect from http to https on all my websites, but exactly for this i allow also http connections to this subdomain.

At least if you use your device as gateway/router to the internet you should consider to upgrade to the latest version due to some security fixes.

And because my all older (< 4.14.79) target specific packages are lost due to a server crash, you can't install target specific packages for this old version.


#259

Hi Juppin.
Do your builds no longer contain support for ath9k dynack ?


#260

i just wanted to ask the same as Szkrabula!

i would like trunk builds with only luci and ath9k dynack added.

Thank you very much for your work! :slight_smile:


#261

After the server went down and i was not able to fix my VPN problems i switched back to the normal openWRT.

Could anyone confirm wether PPTP VPN Passthrough is working with the latest build and what steps are needed to get it working? I would love to give this build another go (the normal version feels sluggish in comparison)
