Build for Netgear R7800


#1304

Thanks! (didn't know if I should've edited or not).


#1305

I get some compile error tho, don't know what's up, if i run compile again it fails at another package_compile. (wget, wireless-regdb and so on)

time: package/feeds/packages/perl/host-compile#338.52#30.21#330.13

#1306

Failing with different packages points to parallel compilation hiding the actual failing package... Compile just one thread, avoid parallel. Easier to see the actual errors in the build log. I assume you have already browsed through the compile log...

make clean
hnscripts/singlecompile

Or just normal make


#1308

hello,no matter what i try i just cant seem to get the upnp or port forward to open any port on my ps4 or xbox one but for some reason your 17.1 fw would work just fine.

port forward would only open on one system at a time..


#1309

Do you have any pointers to the mac80211 issue with 4addr Client mode? This is a real showstopper for me and I would like to track that issue / see it fixed in the next release.


#1310

I created your build environment and made a few changes I hope won't effect my build. I changed to dnsmasq full because I want mwan3 package. I guess the mwan3 package requires dnsmasq full. I also cross compiled in modemmanager and a modemmanager luci protocol as I only use LTE modems as my WAN. Fingers crossed your environment and patches fix my wifi issues i was having with my own environment.


#1311

Hi hnyman,

thanks a lot for your build, it is rock stable for me and all wireless devices (mostly android) are running perfectly fine. Thanks!

But do you know which one of the settings is the best for flow offloading? I noticed that this setting will increase my speeds from 250-300mbps to the max! See R7800 performance Thanks again!


#1312

Sorry, I have only a 100 Mbit connection, so I do not need offloading at the moment. Only software offloading works in ipq806x, so you either have it on, or you do not have offloading at all.


#1313

"only 100 Mbit"... :grinning: Most of my colleagues do not even have 10mbit :smiley: hehe

Thanks. I'm really happy now that i found the setting. Maybe you can comment this in your build post (if you would like). And thanks about the info with hardware offloading, now i may keep the R7800 (my WRT1900ACSv2 will be replaced soon). The R7800 is now perfect, only my girlfriend complains about a Static Noise/Buzzing Sound which i cannot hear...


#1314

What did I break now? :smiley:
Luci statistics is broken for me, anyone else? I haven't changed anything regarding that.

Failed to execute call dispatcher target for entry '/admin/statistics/graph/cpu'.

#1317

Hi,

I am currently using a kinda old version of your build and want to update to the recent 18.06 build. I already know I have to do this via TFTP because of the partition changes.

I wanted to ask if there is any approved way of keeping/restoring my configuration after the flash? I guess this has been asked before but this thread is kinda hard to read with over 1200 messages and changing topics.

Best regards.


#1318

I do not think there is any approved way of transferring the settings over to a new major release. Here is how I would do it.

  1. Generate a backup of the current config
  2. Upload the new major version without keeping config
  3. Once rebooted, generate a backup again (this would be the initial default config)
  4. Now unzip the backups and use a visual comparison tool to compare the files and merge the changes into the new backup while paying attention to any incompatible or changed parameters
  5. Upload the modified backup

#1319

I just realized that I didn't state exactly what version I have right now. It is OpenWrt 18.06-SNAPSHOT r6917-8948a78862 so I already have 18.06 but as far as I remember some prerelease without the new partition layout.

Would it be possible to backup/restore the config between those versions? But thanks for those steps, it doesn't seem that complicated anyway.


#1320

Yes. Just make a backup, flash the new firmwarfe via TFTP, and restore your settings from backup.


#1321

@hnyman

So which is the best, most stable build, and most stable wifi? I've tried building your master and switching between the wifi drivers but still have strange wifi issues. Sometimes I lose the 5g, sometimes both radios. And as someone else stated, its something strange with all my Samsung phones and or android boxes.


#1322

I use mainlyt the "old ath10k" master version, and some times also the 18.06 build if I have built that.

The connection used to be rather stable before the -ct revamp, but after that my Android tablet lost connectivity rather frequently with the -ct, ahile it has been more stable with old ath10k.

But I mainly use wired desktop, so I am no wifi connectivity expert.


#1323

No one got any hints about the luci statstics lua error i got above? Is there someting i can reset?


#1324

Not really. There is not much config regarding the CPU plugin in collectd.

Color definition error could point to invalid CPU plugin Luci definition file. Your best bet might be to check /overlay if there have been any changes to Luci files.
