Davidc502- wrt1200ac wrt1900acx wrt3200acm wrt32x builds

Just a minor, but irritating, issue: my UI looks bad because of missing fonts (looks like some web fonts don't load). I've tried on different OSes and browsers but the result is the same. And yes, I have acceptet the self-signed cert.

Happens on both Rosy and AMaterial (I was only allowed to post one image to the forums per post thought…)

AMaterial:

Anyone noticed this?

Like what?

@mariano.silva

There should not be a correlation between the two. Did a reboot fix the issue or does it continue? Or you may try to re-install dnscrypt-proxy Version 2.

Did you try the solutions mentioned in this thread?

I played around with unbound's ip ratelimit settings.
With a limit of 20-25 requests per second, the log showed requests from 127.0.0.1 (openwrt itself) got throttled, doing reverse dns lookups.
For example:

unbound: [31868:0] notice: ip_ratelimit exceeded 127.0.0.1 20 12.0.0.10.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR
unbound: [31868:0] notice: ip_ratelimit exceeded 127.0.0.1 20 12.0.0.10.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR
unbound: [31868:0] notice: ip_ratelimit exceeded 127.0.0.1 20 12.0.0.10.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR

I don't know if this is intended behavior to do 20-25+ reverse dns lookups for the same hosts.
So every time the status page is refreshed these reverse dns lookups do happen.
And I guess if one has a lot of hosts and/or dnsmasq with a large adblock list in place things are slowing down?

@davidc502 Thanks for the quick reply!

A reboot didn't solve it. Believe it or not, i killed bearDropper and that solved the issue. I found that bearDropper is not working either ( i.e. I tried it to lock me out, and it didn't , so I reported it to the author a while back, and looks like he's not maintaining the project anymore ... ) . So I'm not using bearDropper anymore now.

Regards,
Mariano

I don't have this problem. Using ungoogled chromium @Win10.

THE INTERFACE UI is DAMN SLOW !!

I don't expirience any UI slow downs with the latest build. I'm using the default config, just disabled the Statistics, Samba4 and igmpproxy.

@Kherby the github with commits list is here: https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/commits/master

I don't have this issue at all, also the fonts are included with the theme, so it's strange that your having this issue. What build you running? As I have updated theme since the last build.

I can produce a build sooner than this weekend if you all want one?

Already compiled the theme will upload it very soon or can pm you it and you could replace it with the one that is current, or if you wish you can make a new image.

Currently running 4.19.62 kernel on my WRT32x seems to be running well right now

Edit: https://github.com/solidus1983/luci-theme-atmaterial/releases

I have uploaded the latest version of the ATMaterial theme on github its under V1.4

Instructions:

Uninstall ATMaterial theme from the WebGUI then open Putty or any other SSH client and SSH into the router.

Then issue the following command

wget https://github.com/solidus1983/luci-theme-atmaterial/releases/download/V1.4/luci-theme-atmaterial_git-19.216.06136-9ef2ac8-1_all.ipk -O atmaterial.ipk && opkg install atmaterial.ipk

If you want to uninstall the theme and install the new version with ssh simply use this commandline run

opkg remove luci-theme-atmaterial && wget https://github.com/solidus1983/luci-theme-atmaterial/releases/download/V1.4/luci-theme-atmaterial_git-19.216.06136-9ef2ac8-1_all.ipk -O atmaterial.ipk && opkg install atmaterial.ipk

It will uninstall old version and install the new version.

@Kherby Tried with latest stable ungoogled Chromium for macOS. The results are the same. :confused:

@solidus1983 I'm on the latest build, the one with release date 2019-07-27. I can see this info on the bottom of login page:
Powered by LuCI Master (git-19.207.47477-16f23de) / OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r10618-9437012b9.

I do notice I get two 403 Forbidden responses though:

Try the new one I have linked on here seems strange it's happening with error 403

It works. UI is quick now. Thanks.

THANKS !!!!!!!!!!! THIS DID SOLVE THE UI SLOWNESS , one thing i must ask... why isnt it part of OpenWrt configuration in the meantime until things get fixed ? and second question... why this doesnt bother other people here ? i suffer from it for about 4+ months......

@shm0

And I guess if one has a lot of hosts and/or dnsmasq with a large adblock list in place things are slowing down?

Thanks for your reply , the link you provided to the discussion about the slow UI is the root of the solution indeed. about the adblock assumption its an Interesting direction but I have Adblock disabled, maybe because i did have it enabled once so the list is long or maybe the 10 static routes i have .... weird ... i still wonder among the guys here not everyone suffer from this problem without the above solution....

@Kherby

I don't expirience any UI slow downs with the latest build. I'm using the default config, just disabled the Statistics, Samba4 and igmpproxy.

I have them all disabled and still my UI is slow as hell to unresponsive , but now thanks to @treefiddy its working again ! :slight_smile:

Probably because most users have no issue with the ui, i never had any issue with a slow ui on Win10 edge or Firefox.

Any recommendations on adding another router to the wrt32x to boost wifi in a different part to my home? Coverage is mostly ok but one part of my home is wired but doesn't have much of a wifi connection. Cheers

Buy another 32x?
Makes maintenance simple?
Eventually second hand.

I would recommend an asus RT-AC 86U client bridge mode. Or with a WRT1900acs. I have 2 WRT3200acm routers, one is the American version and the other is the European version. The European version is the worst of all because the limitation of the wireless signal in the 2.4ghz band (channels 1-13 / 20dBm) and 5Ghz (channel 36 to 48 / 23dBm - 52 to 64 / 20dBm - 100 to 140 / 27dBm - 149 to 161 / 13dBm) With the firmware Davic502 enables these channels 149,153,157 but with a very low power at 13dBm
Now in the American version the wireless coverage at 2.4Ghz is perfect (channels 1 to 11 / 30dBm) and at 5Ghz (channels 36 to 144 / 23dBm --- 149 to 161 / 30dBm)
In the European version due to FCC regulation has these restrictions on signal irradiation. Unfortunately so far there is no way to increase the power of the signal because these values ​​(which are the tables) are stored in eeprom memory. If you ever buy the WRT3200acm, WRT1900ACv2 and WRT1900ACSv2 models, choose the American version.

WRT1900ACv2 and WRT1900ACSv1 does not have that restriction.
