AVM FRITZ!Box 7360 lan ports on 21.02.3 not working

I just read the release notes, in particular, the 'known issues and regression' and noticed that it is not listed that ports 3 and 4 on OpenWRT version 21.02.3 r16554-1d4dea6d4f / LuCI openwrt-21.02 branch git-22.083.69138-0a0ce2a do not work. That means, plugging an Ethernet cable into them does not provide a connection.

This issue is being worked on in the upcoming release: 22.03.0-rc6 r19590-042d558536 / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-22.204.42822-9a18337, where the lan ports in question presently work, but where wifi and ssh do not work. it is possible to create a wifi network via luci but connecting to it is not possible. all attempts at ssh connections are rejected with a bad password, though the same password is used in luci and works.

These would mean the last fully working version of the firmware on these boxes is 19.0.

On a side note, the firmware recognizes by box as a V2 even though this is not printed on the box.

Question: any plans to resolve the port issues on the 21.02.3 r16554-1d4dea6d4f / release?

Could you test earlier versions such as 21.02.2 ?

21.02.3 appears to be missing this commit found only in master (and 22.03.0-rc*)


fwiw, you can report bugs here:

They should work with 100Mbit clients ( or forced to 100Mbit). I had issues with extraction art partition previously ( you might use file /lib/firmware/ath9k-eeprom-pci* extracted in 19.07 as a workaround). But now I'm using custom trunk with my 7362sl and no problems there
Edit2: afaik v2 is clearly printed on the box so maybe you used wrong image as they're two

Thanks a lot. Do you care to share a link to your custom trunk please? Thanks a lot.

thanks. I will try and report later today. i will do so at the bug report link you provided.

This is not the case with mine. It's only printed there: 7360. And luci reports 7360 V2.

Then you must check hardware ID. Boxmatrix shows Fritz_Box_HW183 is 7360v1 HW181 is 7360sl and hw196 is 7360v2 . You will find this info in bootloader bootlog
7360SL image is valid for all except v2 hardware
