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

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

@bill888 I have just now tested the version you asked. Only physical LAN ports 1 and 2 work.

Have you verified the Hardware ID of your device as requested by others who appear to be suggesting you may have flashed the wrong image?

@bill888 the router will not flash if it's the wrong image. so there are only two images for this device. I tried both, but only one will flash: the one listed with V2. So, yes, my router is flashed with V2, even though "V2" is not printed at the bottom of the box itself.

@bill888 anything else to test?

Please post output for both commands on 22.03.0-rc6 or recent trunk . Lantiq target wasn't in best shape in 21.02.xx

@nicefile I have done this. thanks for your help.

@bill888 possible to do this via ssh?

...Then according the boxmatrix and OpenWrt wiki You should have V2 with 32MB flash installed. Please test recent trunk build or 22.03-rc6 . Both use DSA drivers and require wipe configuration when flashing.


@nicefile Robert, you've helped greatly and I thank you. Results after flashing OpenWrt 22.03.0-rc6 r19590-042d558536 / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-22.204.42822-9a18337
ssh works
wifi works
ALL FOUR (4) hardware lan ports work.
With a few clicks it used to be that it is easy to see the speed on the LAN ports (100/1000) but I can't find that. It would be nice to know what speed these ports are working on. NOT CRUCIAL.
@nicefile, again, Robert; THANK YOU VERY MUCH. The wait has been very, very long. Now if anyone can say whether this release candidate would be the version to be released as stable, that would be very nice. But to who ever needs to know, Robert, please communicate these results. And if you want me to do further tests, I'd be very happy to do so.

@nicefile Roberts perhaps you can please help again. It used to be that to get a newly installed device online, I'd connect an Ethernet cable to any of the hard LAN ports to another LAN port on a router that has access to the internet. And then connect another LAN cable to my machine and another port on the newly installed device. I would then use the IP to I will get from the router with Internet, really another OpenWrt, and ssh into the newly installed router and install packages. But now, this is not working like this. I get no IP, but I can access Luci. I get IP from the newly installed device from my network card info. So, do you know how I can get this newly installed device online? Thanks a lot in advance.
