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


#284

In last build for 4300 wifi5ghz LED doesnt work. At /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:00.0 a leds folder missing. And of course in /sys/class/leds device missing too.


#285

Sure you can switch back...
My assumption was that this error is also on ar71xx.

I will take a look into this soon. Peace.


#286

After the source-only flag got removed

official snapshot builds are appearing now as well:

https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ath79/


#287

So many different builds now! If we wanna use an ath79 should we use this one, or the official snapshot builds? I see this has dyk-ack (which official wont have right?) but other than that, will this have anything else? Is the compiling more optimized than official? Or everything almost the same?

Have anyone switch to the Official? Is it as stable as this guy? I'm flashing a new device, and don't know which one I should choose. I use to use this one on all my archer c7 in the past, and it was pretty solid.

Or do we use the optimized ar71xx FastPath one (nightly updated 3 months ago). Or stable 18.06.1 (updated Aug)?


#288

I like this because all the kmod packages are published, so they remain installable after a few days too!
If I use snapshot, those kmod packages (e.g. fs, usb) will expire because of the nightly rebuild.

This is the awesomest custom build I experienced! :heart_eyes:


#289

I thought that now anyone would use the snapshot builds, so i update my devices also with the snapshot builds and didn´t updated this custom build...

For me i do not install kmod packages very often and if i want to i have to update the snapshot image first...

I will update this custom build until there is a stable ath79 openwrt release if there are some users that will use my builds...

Which ath79 build are you using?

  • I will use this custom build
  • I use the snapshot builds now
  • I use another build

#295

What does your uname -a say on the router?


#296

when I use SQM and software offloading...

my network performance gets very unreliable, like if the CPU was drowning in the router

dsl reports would say my downloads are fine, but upload is like... .5 to 4mbps, from 10-18mbps with the offload off

and pages like FB feel like when they're about to crash...

now, I switched from my WNDR3700V4 to the 3800 and this rom, for the MUCH improved Luci and package manager...

but how do I set up Dynack? or that is enabled automatically?


#297

add option distance 'auto' to your ath9k config section.

For example:

config wifi-device 'radio0'
	option type 'mac80211'
	option hwmode '11g'
	option path 'platform/ahb/ahb:apb/18100000.wmac'
	option htmode 'HT20'
	option noscan '1'
	option legacy_rates '0'
	option channel '6'
	option country 'DE'
	option distance 'auto'

Or enter auto in the distance field in luci wireless configuration.


#298

Unless you're looking for link distances significantly above 100m, I'd suggest to leave the distance parameter unset - it's very easy to shoot yourself into the foot by using it (wrongly).

#300

With kernel 4.14.90-1-b7f863e0896642b15e1f9f4e8680800b openvpn and wireguard works fine
Thank you very much


#301

wndr3800 user here... no luci on default
or atleast I had to SSH into the router and download luci,,, even after resetting the router

aside from that, it's running REALLY REALLY good!
this latest kernel and OpenWRT snapshot runs really good and so far, super stable


#302

TP-Link WR1043 V1 same problem with no luci on default


#303

thanks a lot to @Juppin for this builds, just upgraded my archer c7 v2 and everything is going great

one little question: to take full advantage of the flow offloading feature, i have added "option flow_offloading 1" to the /etc/config/firewall, is this necessary? do i need anything more?

thanks a lot

M
