Davidc502- wrt1200ac wrt1900acx wrt3200acm wrt32x builds

I'm unsure if you meant this as reply to my post, but in that case: no, it didn't help, unfortunately. Please clarify if possible.

Hello davidc502 ,
You can implement in your version of firmware and the option of wifi schedule, in order to be able to suspend the activity on the side of the wifi during the nights or on certain days?...
Or how can I add this option in this version?


Take a look at luci-app-wifischedule.


Ive been waiting for this to come to openwrt for a while now.

Hi David and all
Ive just upgraded to r12833.
How to I get dnscrypt v2 working, I see the package is present as part of the built but cant see where to go next?

all the best


Can you verify where all of your devices go for DNS resolution? All clients should be pointed to the router Gateway IP address for DNS resolution. That is the first step.

2nd Step is to look at your dnscrypt-proxy.toml file. The 2 most important lines are the following examples:

server_names = ['cloudflare']
listen_addresses = ['']
doh_servers = true

Once the following has been verified you can restart the service.

The 3rd step is to start proxying the dns queries from your clients.

Under your network configurations add the following line under 'Config Interface WAN'

option dns ''

Those 3 steps should get you up and running.

Hello i have install on my wrt3200acm a last firmware of openwrt 19.07.2 r10947-65030d81f3.
I'm trying to use the davidc502 build, what i have to do ..
Update the firmware from a factury file or sysupdate file.

From the factory firmware if you have only installed OpenWrt 1 time, then you need to use the OpenWrt .img file the second time. You do not have to update from factory, and do not update from the openwrt .bin file. If this isn't clear let me know.

That part i don't understand,

To use your build "openwrt-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys_wrt3200acm-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin" only need to update from

I'll just try asking once more in case somebody looked over my primary question.

Can somebody please give me some input on optimal Wifi config for my situation/devices?

Large single-story house and 3 potential wifi points:

  1. Linksys WRT1900ACS (OpenWRT, primary router)
  2. Linksys EA9500 (stock FW, wired to primary router)
  3. Linksys RE7000 (stock FW, currently not wired wireless range extender).

Not much to do about the stock firmware devices so my config options are mainly on the primary router. Should I set it as AP or AP (WDS)? Should I go for 802.11r or not? I should also mention that the goal here is to have seamless roaming and I have some legacy (G-only devices that will connect to the 2.4 Ghz band). Any tips on how to get those 3 devices to play nicely are greatly appreciated, thanks!

Take a look at the difference between .bin and .img -> #2 https://dc502wrt.org/faq/

The 3200acm has 2 partitions, and each time flashed uses the other partition. So, if flashed OpenWrt from factory, then OpenWrt is on the 2nd partition and Factory FW is on the 1st partition. The factory FW is still on your router right now, so to over-write it, be sure to use the OpenWrt .img file.

HI here
i just installed the last build - all good except few small stuff
1/ the screen for advanced reboot, has back square and can see properly the different buttons - i use firefox - tested also on safari - same


in the tab DHCP and DNS, i can not add or modify existing dns forwardings as i get a message 'expecting valid hostname' even when i just want to put which is valid or
the point 2 is particularly annoying - can you help here please?
with the 19.07.2 release, i dont have this behavior

hi David
sorry for delay i nreplying....I tried this and the DNS is still coming from my ISP. The relevant sections of the toml file show

# server_names = ['scaleway-fr', 'google', 'yandex', 'cloudflare']
server_names ['cloudflare']

## listen_addresses = ['', '[::1]:53']
listen_addressess ['']

while in /etc/config/network we have

config interface 'wan'
        option ifname 'eth1.2'
        option proto 'pppoe'
        option username 'xxxxxxxx@skydsl'
        option password 'xxxxxxxx'
        option ipv6 'auto'
        option dns ''

Issues with the opentomato theme that was the cause for it not to be the default is sorted and will be back in DavidC's next build. However using the Software section in LUCI you can install opentomato.

un-check the following

Interfaces -> WAN -> Advanced Settings ----- Uncheck "Use DNS servers advertised by peer"

Hello.. hope everyone is doing well.

Just looking for a bit of advice; for any SQM QoS users out there, which is better for our devices: piece_of_cake or layer_cake? I have been using the former as recommended by the wiki entry, but recently read a post mentioning that layer_cake is good. I know that it uses more CPU, but I'm guessing our hardware is more that adequate but I could be wrong.

Also these were recommended for the config: option iqdisc_opts 'docsis besteffort ingress nat' and option eqdisc_opts 'docsis ack-filter nat'

Is there an ideal configuration with the best results, or does it vary case by case for network usage?


Looking at master it appears mvebu will be getting kernel 5.4. Will supply a link for those who wish to test.


I've been running 5.4 for over a month now without any issues at all.


Interested. WRT1200 ACv2, happy to test.

Been following this thread, is it the same as mvebu?
