Mesh11sd: Internet (not connection) drops in 4.0.1

A starting point is to turn off nodes 1, 2, 4 and 5.

This might be the simplest and most efficient solution (to quote Elon Musk " the best part is no part. The best process is no process. It weighs nothing, costs nothing, can't go wrong.").

I'm didn't restart it, I just noticed no Internet in the morning and later a changed MAC address.

Is there any way to "lock that down" in order to make it permanent on the nodes?

Yes exactly. I turned off WiFi and turned it back on again (Android). Same for my wifes iPhone. On my computer (Linux) I also had that issue, but it fixed itself after a few (maybe 20) seconds.

Done! I turned off 1, 4 and 5 only and left 2 online if that's OK. The reason is that this one also provides a wired connections (via its Ethernet ports) to one of my servers, a document scanner and a printer.

That's ok. The reason to turn some off is because they look redundant.
So the question is, can you connect anywhere in the flat with these turned off?

That is typical of CPD. I have OpenSuse Tumbleweed with Gnome desktop on my laptop and get the same delay when opening the lid in the morning.

The only way the mac can revert to the original duplicated mac is after either a restart of the mesh11sd service or a reboot. Then possibly, for just a few seconds, depending on the wireless driver/cpu speed etc, mesh11sd will start up and fix the issue.

To be clear, the bridge (br-lan) mac address should never change and it is this mac address that is used by the dhcp client to get an ip address, so the ipv4 should never change.

What can change is the meshnode mac address that HWMP uses and this is reflected in the output of mesh11sd connect and there can indeed be incorrect entries in the table, but they should disappear after a short while.

I asked for uptime, to see if it indicated if a crash and reboot had happened. Only you can tell if one node has been up a shorter time than the others..... if you see what I mean. The dmesg output was to see if mesh11sd had crashed and restarted - no sign of that.

It is locked down, in that it will always be the same once mesh11sd has started - it is not randomised.

Note that the mac address used for dhcp will be the mac that the bridge (br-lan) has. The mac address that the mesh interface has will be the locally administered/indexed version of the br-lan mac. It is recognisable, but different.

You can see the mac addresses if all the interfaces when mesh11sd is running by doing:
ip link

Here is the output of the portal node of my test system (a gl-mt1300, almost identical hardware to your ZyXEL WSM20).

Thanks @bluewavenet, just getting used to driving the interface :slight_smile:

I'm having issues in the rooms on the top, where 5 and 4 are located (but still turned off). WiFi connection is there (maybe 3/4 of the bars), but the Internet connection doesn't work.

Is it possible for me to assign fixed IP's based on that address then? I'm asking as you mentioned something like not to trust LuCi before (and that's where I'd look it up)

No, uptime looks correct. I'm not aware of any crashes or power outages (but I was sleeping), unlikely though.

Yes, you would assign static dhcp leases in your main router (is it running OpenWrt?)

Problem is you don't know which you are actually connecting to - depends on the user device whether you can see the essid-mac. That looks like more than enough signal strength. It is probably red3...

Can you mesh11sd connect into red 3?
If you can, try a ping and see what you get:
ping openwrt.org

This will test the ipv4 connectivity.

If it does not work, try:
ping -6 -I br-lan ff02::2

This is a multicast ping to all "routers" and will show many "dup" messages as all the meshnodes plus probably your main router reply. A good test of connectivity.

OK thanks I will do that. It's running OPNsense, I built it myself.

I can see it on my Linux computer, but not on the phones (I checked). I'm also only carrying around the phones, so only seeing the issue there. However, I'm also suspecting red-3 (as red-2 has all the stuff connected to it via Ethernet like a printer and such and it works).

Yes (SSHed into green, then used mesh11sd to connect to red-3. I probably could have SSHed directly into it too I think). Anyway, it works fine (atm): PING openwrt.org (64.226.122.113): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 64.226.122.113: seq=0 ttl=55 time=23.100 ms 64 bytes from 64.226.122.113: seq=1 ttl=55 time=32.007 ms 64 bytes from 64.226.122.113: seq=2 ttl=55 time=17.024 ms etc. and --- openwrt.org ping statistics --- 14 packets transmitted, 14 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max = 15.921/18.790/32.007 ms at the end.

I used ping -6 -I br-lan ff02::2 anyway and it also worked: 'PING ff02::2 (ff02::2): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from fe80::d61a:d1ff:fe12:af1c: seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.917 ms

64 bytes from fe80::ea6a:64ff:feab:8aa2: seq=0 ttl=64 time=4.937 ms (DUP!)etc. and--- ff02::2 ping statistics ---
11 packets transmitted, 11 packets received, 34 duplicates, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.610/15.372/78.520 ms`.

BTW: I'm doing all the tests from my computer in the same room as red-2 (which it is connected to as evident by the BSSID). Should I do something like iwlist scanning via Termux from my phone in another room to confirm a connection to red-3 that way?

Yes. I'm not familiar with Termux, so I guess a "yes". I use PingTools on Android for things like that.

It didn't work unfortunately, as it needs root access. What did work however (I learned it via stackexchange) was just dialing *#*#4636#*#* in the phone app. This command reveals a lot of WiFi info and did confirm that I was connected to red-3. Everything was fine however and I had no network issues just now.
