Help me find the reason my openwrt is rebooting

So yeah it’s rebooting like six times a day. Please help me find the reason why. Thanks.

EDIT: This ridiculos modder took his tantrum as a solution. The clown. When it was two minutes to read the data he asked for and ignore for a minute that this is a fork, and MAYBE find the culprit buuut nooo it was more worthy to just provoque a two hours of a xenophobic event. It’s more fun.

Let's start by looking at your config... and please post directly into the forum -- don't use 3rd party sites like pastebin.

Please connect to your OpenWrt device using ssh and copy the output of the following commands and post it here using the "Preformatted text </> " button:
Remember to redact passwords, MAC addresses and any public IP addresses you may have:

ubus call system board
cat /etc/config/network
cat /etc/config/wireless
cat /etc/config/dhcp
cat /etc/config/firewall

This is not OpenWrt. It is a fork that is unrelate to the official OpenWrt project. Please ask the people who maintain the X-WRT project. This forum cannot help you.


Yes it is in its core. I even find the instructions to flash it here in an Official Post.

So what would be the reason why it’s rebooting? Thank you.

X-WRT is not the same as OpenWrt.

This version does not exist in OpenWrt... the latest is 23.05.2.

If you install OpenWrt from the official project (i.e. downloaded from, we can help you here. But what you are running is not from this project.

It appears you are using firmware that is not from the official OpenWrt project.

When using forks/offshoots/vendor-specific builds that are "based on OpenWrt", there may be many differences compared to the official versions (hosted by Some of these customizations may fundamentally change the way that OpenWrt works. You might need help from people with specific/specialized knowledge about the firmware you are using, so it is possible that advice you get here may not be useful.

You may find that the best options are:

  1. Install an official version of OpenWrt, if your device is supported (see
  2. Ask for help from the maintainer(s) or user community of the specific firmware that you are using.
  3. Provide the source code for the firmware so that users on this forum can understand how your firmware works (OpenWrt forum users are volunteers, so somebody might look at the code if they have time and are interested in your issue).

If you believe that this specific issue is common to generic/official OpenWrt and/or the maintainers of your build have indicated as such, please feel free to clarify.

Are you trying to tell me that this is the same thing as OpenWrt?

No, if you expand the post you can see that is supports your same point, which is that it is an old fork that would appear to have gone defunct around 2013. Described in that post as "discontinued."

That was my read, too... just wanted to make sure that you weren't suggesting that the linked thread was saying otherwise.

Oh okay here we can find the source code. Regarded in to the third point, Hope someone is interested in this. Thank you.

The version number (24.01) does somewhat suggest that someone might be developing against that fork actively (assuming that is 2024.January)... do they have an active forum? If so, you might see if you can get answers there.

It’s been updated 19 hours ago. Not dead at all. They’re Chinese and they are not as active as here. That’s why I’m here :slight_smile:

It looks like someone is doing something active and recent, compiling lots of stuff & keeping binaries current on-the-fly.

Bit of a mysterious website and github.

My guesses are either:
A) It's for Chinese-language localization


B) it may be a honeypot site with backdoored/malwared versions of WRT "lookalike" software designed to trap the unwary.

I had to use that one because my device it’s been discontinued for the oficial openwrt. Even though all the other “MI router” models are still supported i think.

Is it really worth it to run what looks like untrusted code for your network firewall?

Why not just get an appropriate replacement unit of some kind from eBay, craigslist, or Facebook marketplace? For $50 or less?

I'm, totally, confused:

You found an official OpenWrt page for your router. You want OpenWrt help.
Why are you not flashing to OpenWrt and getting the help you want?

Oh yes of course. Any Chinese activity is evil. Right? Well if that were the case it would have been known by all the informed ppl like you here. Since it’s a somewhat and sometime recommended in the openwrt site.

I didn't say that it WAS a honeypot site. I said it might be. It sure doesn't look all that well documented or organzied as to WHO is producing that code.

Okay, this leaning into an argument.

Either flash it with OpenWrt or don't.

This page looks a little strange for an open-source network hardware firmware development and distribution site. Strongly suggest that OP get a compatible device and install from the official OpenWRT repository or binaries sites.
