Ethernet cuts out on Linksys EA6350v3

I don't understand what you're asking. The router becomes inaccessible from ethernet, so whenever this happens I have to power up my laptop and ssh in through wifi. I'm saying that there is nothing there in the logs aside from the IP address being assigned to my laptop and the secure shell authentication stuff. If what was going wrong was logged, I would find it before that stuff, but there's simply nothing there.

On the off-chance that it’s switch related, what’s that config? ipq40xx are a little tweaky compared to others.


is this what you need? if not let me know the path to where I can find it

Nothing surprising there, but worth the check.

Oh, actually, I'll take a screenshot of that page again whenever the issue occurs again. Maybe there'll be a difference then.

edit: it happened again. no difference when I checked the page.

Good Evening,

I installed Openwrt recently on the EA6350v3, and encountered this same issue.
The WAN and LAN ports are handled by the same ethernet controller on this device.
If you pump too much data through the controller it locks up.
I was only able to trigger this with a hardwired device, wifi doesn't appear to run enough bandwidth to trigger the bug.

It seems to be similar to the issue plaguing rk3328/rk3399 ethernet controllers, where heavy load causes the ethernet controller to lock up.
On the rockchips, if you send too much data through the controller with tx coe offloading enabled, the buffers get overloaded and the controller crashes.
Unfortunately disabling offloading on the ea6350 only raises the threshold for the bug to trigger.
I was unable to fully diagnose the issue, before being forced to return to stock firmware.

This seems related to the issues people have with certain websites not working correctly, which can be mitigated by lowering the MTU.
I found references of a new ethernet driver being developed by @blogic, but I cannot find the actual driver.

Mainline linux does not have a driver for this ethernet controller.

I'm also experiencing this. My parents gigabit internet will cause the ethernet switch to stop working after most internet speed tests are run. Can still connect to the router over wifi with nothing shown in the logs, a reboot brings it back up.

I've read that the current driver is essedma and possibly in the future this will switch to DSA qca8k? I'm brand new to OpenWRT, is there any hope of this being fixed or should I look into getting another router?

fwiw, perhaps try @NoTengoBattery 's latest snapshot to see if there is any difference?
https://forum.openwrt.org/t/optimized-nas-latency-memory-build-for-linksys-ea6350v3-civic/44125

I should have added, I started with release version of 19.07, then the latest snapshot and @NoTengoBattery latest build, all with settings reset (just installing Luci in the snapshot). They all had the same issue eventually.

It does not occur every time, and going by gut feeling it seems like the later builds required more runs of the speedtest before failing but that's just a hunch. The speed tests generally failed showing >500Mbps on screen at the time.

I have flashed stock 19.07 back on. I hooked up the EA6350 WAN port to my existing LAN switch. I then attached a computer to the EA6350 LAN as iperf3 client and on my real LAN had a machine as iperf3 server.

Does this testing make sense? I would assume it should be close to the speed tests that caused the switch to stop working at my parents. ~870 Mbits/sec and ~940 in reverse mode.

I could not manage to make the switch stop working.

Some differences:

  1. Parents have IPv6, this test no IPv6. I don't recall but I imagine most of the parents test would have been over IPv6.
  2. Parents home the LAN computer was a desktop running Ubuntu machine, this test was an iMac running macOS
  3. Parents WAN was connected to Cable Modem, this test was a HP switch

Any thoughts?

Maybe install collectd statistics? Might get lucky and capture a trend on memory or processor usage that is helpful - or it just tells you you crashed again.

I've run a few iperf tests on my EA6350v3 running snapshot r11735 that pushed its wired speed near Gigabit without issues, but my current ISP is too slow to challenge WAN throughput.

Every year or so I swap back and forth from 40/2 bonded VDSL2 and 200/10 cable to keep the introductory rate. Our connected, streaming, VOIP family is hard pressed to notice a slowdown on 40/2 with CAKE SQM/QoS. We're currently on 40/2.

As a simple test, have you considered disabling IPv6 by deleting WAN6 interface, assuming your parents have IPv4 ?

The OP in this thread thought problems may be caused by IPv6.
Fritzbox 4040 problem
(Unable to ping router at 192.168.1.1 when it fails)

Thanks for the help! Since my home does not have IPv6, I assigned a prefix to the WAN of my real router and with the same iperf set up as before now using IPv6... it crashes!

I was logged in with SSH reading the logs and here they are:

I have reset the router to defaults and only changed the WAN IPv6 prefix length and during the failures many error lines are in logs like posts above.

Enabling the Wifi seems to generate less errors.

2.4GHz only:

5GHz only:

With both 2.4GHz and 5GHz enabled it seems to fail so you can still connect to Luci over WiFi but with no errors in logs (like I experienced at parents).

WiFi status could be random and mean nothing but hoping the logs can help.

So would deleting the WAN6 interface be a temporarily fix for this issue?

You may wish to raise a bug report with your findings.

Update: trr's bug report: [FS#2741]

Should be OK, I'll bring the router back and try it out.

Reported the issue. Thanks!

Good Morning,

I've lost access to the EA6350v3 I was working with (though I am tempted to buy one).
Would you be able to flash the debug kernel and re-run the test?

Thanks!
Peter

Is this related to the OPs problem?

If this is a general issue with flashing the EA6350v3, I'd suggest making a new thread for wider viewing.

I would like to add that I have these issues on 2 Fritz!Box 4040's and a Linksys EA8300. In my case I have to have IPv6 enabled, use the lan interface on my desktop and create some network traffic with YouTube or wget, this will drop out reproducible my complete network. As of the affected models with this issue it might be related to the Qualcomm IPQ40xx driver.

Here is my bug report: https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2591
