Hi,today I was thinking, that I make a try with current snapshot images for my Archer C7 v2. Before I used 18.06.4 without problems (it is only a test system).
I just want to report two thinks:
- first that after installing the package, the device stops responding. Also a reboot won't help.
Installing kmod-rtl8xxxu (4.14.125+4.19.32-1-2) to root... Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ar71xx/generic/kmods/4.14.125-1-4798db7ce04dcb4337e44dbaa2a958a0/kmod-rtl8xxxu_4.14.125%2b4.19.32-1-2_mips_24kc.ipk Configuring kmod-rtl8xxxu.
At least I tested without the USB WiFi Stick (TP-Link TL-WN821N), but the device don't come up with the installed module (on the old IP). Then I saw, that the device comes up with 192.168.1.1 - on failsafe mode - without trigger it myself - I only powered off and on again.
Ok, thats not bad at all - but what I found after mount_root:
The file /etc/config/network + firewall + wireless (maybe more) got a reset - they all have default values?!
I think that's not expected? The funny thing is, that's this is the second time I saw this problem on this snapshot - before I played around with the reset button to get on failsafe - so I was thinking I pushed reset for to long?!
But on both cases, I could see my backup files in /etc/config/ - which was not delete - so it was not a clean "firstboot" who wiped out everything.
So the second think I report is, that something for the failsafe mode is not working how it is expected...?!
