Optimized build for Linksys EA6350v3 (civic)

Hi Any progress?.
What happens if i don't apply the fix vlan patches at this point?.

If you delete the patch, it will revert to OpenWrt default behavior, which is incorrect and annoying. If you don't use or need VLAN, then go ahead. I'm into fixing it but it does require some kernel debugging and I'm already working on it (I have a TIAO TUMPA for the JTAG, it's just matter of time to get both things working).

I removed the whole code for the default VLAN tagging (not just the current hack, a total removal) but it somehow makes the device to not rise up the wireless.

I just want to report that I've already solved the problem with the patched VLAN, it's working for me now. More testing needed, you can test it already, the commits are in my mastertrack branch already.

A working binary is in the process of testing, so my users can expect a new release soon.

If they do change the code layer because it looks like it breaks some other devices, the patches probably won't apply so it's a good time to grab the files and build.

Guys! I have interesting news!

Did someone suffered from random reboots when using the snapshots (including my snapshots)? Well, we can name Linux 5.4 (as the stable release of OpenWrt does use Linux 4.19 and it's free from the issue).

And while I can't fix the root cause, I can and have fixed the main critical problem. Now, you can expect to have a more reliable device, like in the old days when master used Linux 4.19 (they changed to Linux 5.4 some months ago).

I'm currently testing it but expect a release on GitHub soon (source code and packages are already online, just waiting to get pleased and upload the upgrade).

Hi, yes, I have suffered from random reboots with v1.13.oc! What is the cause?

Waiting for the new release! thank you.

The release is done, please check it out. I've documented one of the stronges features of this v1.15.oc version, which you can read here:

Also, I've implemented 2 important features:

  1. The hotfixes, which is a backup-compatible file to fix small annoyances that I forgot to implement in the main image, or that failed my tests once the packages and images were ready.
  2. A better error and crash reporting mechanics, when the device stores their dying breath in a reserved section of RAM that it's available once the device reboots. Along with it, an automatic script to recollect the data from RAM.

If your device crashes for any reason, or you think you have a problem, contact me directly on GitHub issues with a copy of all the files in /sys/fs/pstore and /rom/bootfs/pstore. If your logs contains any private, sensible or otherwise important information, send them to my email, but always open a GitHub issue.

If everything works great, I would love to hear from you, @xxx, to know if it improved Wireguard and from you @Cjcr if it improved the routing perfomance.

Hi @NoTengoBattery, been running 0.15.oc+patch for a day now, appears to be stable. Wireguard performance seems unchanged, but i did observe something interesting. I expect the wireless throughput to be slightly lower compared to wired, but not by 17Mbps..

over 5Ghz, speedtest results yeild:

  • EA6350v3 running WG client, speedtest on macbook
    ping 12ms, 30Mbps down, 18Mbps up (average of 3 runs)

over hardwired ethernet:

  • EA6350v3 running WG client, speedtest on macbook
    ping 11ms, 47Mbps down, 19Mbps up (average of 3 runs)

Well, wireless is a big problem with this device! 2.4GHz is technically unusable and 5 GHz works but it's far from perfect.
I don't know when you downloaded the hotfixes file, but I've changed it right now to include a script to disable ANI. ANI is the "Adaptative Noise Immunity" for the wireless, and I think it's problematic. If you can download, and try again, and do an iperf3 it would be amazing.
I swear I've tried anything I can think to make wireless usable but it's such a pain in the ass, it just don't want to work!

Keep me updated :wink:

For me, these are the results of iperf3, they are pretty good, but maybe my home is small and I'm kind of near the AP (like 7 meters with a solid concrete wall in between, tho):

Since the hotfix is not versioned, can you post SHA/MD hash of one of the files that has changed? Just want to ensure i am testing against right thing.

Excelent idea!
The shasum is already on the GitHub page now! Thanks for the suggestion :wink:

Good thing i asked, i had whatever hotfix was d274c473e2dfab41bdb1188e990d3955f5b0f87f2e7ebebba51b028a9db4f599, but that also means that you can now see results of both hotfixes.. Looks like 5f9d makes it worse..

mine is ~2 meters away, line of sight to macbook...transfer rates do not look too good..but i suppose explain the difference between wifi and ethernet performance related to speedtest.. i guess the question now, is why..

Ok, before trying again with any enabled, can you test the alternative calibrations?
testcalibration alternative alternative, just to isolate the issue a bit more :wink:

Ran the tests with alternate configs for 5Ghz band only and latest patch, the results are mostly negligible, particularly in reverse test.. I think i will roll back to using .15 and original patch for now, unless you have anything else you want me to try.

No, actually nothing to test... I think I'm giving up, I tried anything but nothing works... Leaving the defaults, just enabling the firmware kick-out feature to (not surprisingly) kick out clients from the 2.4 GHz which kinda works but can keep clients connected when it's performing awful, so it's better to give up these connections...

Hi @NoTengoBattery,
To provide an update, i reverted back to 1.15oc release with original patch (hash ending in 4f599) and the performance picked back up. On your point on running default configuration, that is what i am doing with one minor exception. I found that setting Beacon Interval on both radios from default 100 to 900 makes the connection "more stable". While I am sad to hear that your at the giving up point, i really appreciate all the work that you've put into this project! Please let me know if there is anything i can help with in seeing any additional progress could be made with this device.

Oh no no, don't get me wrong. I give up about the wireless, but about the device itself, I've already worked too hard and fixed too many annoyances to give up now...
Just leave the wireless as it is, enable the kick out feature and not much more than that :blush: maybe I'm buying an N600 access point since here in my country we have not too many options. I was actually really lucky to get this one.

Hi there,

I am trying to update my old v1.13.oc to v1.15.oc without luck. It bricked seems.
What I am doing is: Go back to Stock firmware, upload the factory.bin file, and when it is going to boot, it reboots in loop.

I am doing this because I want to keep the origial stock firmware.

Could be because it doesn't reset the settings on openwrt and this cause the brick?

Thank you.

Hi!
I'm not aware of such issue, since you're the first one reporting it. It's quite possible that you're facing a configuration conflict. This is because my build is an snapshot and OpenWrt itself is evolving. The same will happen when OpenWrt changes from the current swconfig to DSA in the future.

It's weird because I'm aware of that change, for future snapshots, and LuCI will warn you, but I'm not aware of any recent change that breaks things.

I think you should try to update your device without keeping your settings, just to try. You can always download a backup before proceeding to update with factory reset, you don't need to lose everything.

And I'm pretty sure that it's not a firmware issue by itself because both v1.13.oc and v1.15.oc work as expected. Anyway, I'll upload the v1.16.oc in the following hours so if you can wait and try that, just because it can be a problem with the current one, it will be great.

Always backup and sorry to hear your device is broken, but my advice is to try a factory reset and apply the settings manually since both versions work.

Hello,

The problem is that I want to update OpenWrt from stock-linksys partition (here don't have an option to don't keep the settings), but looks like that something don't work in this way and I dont have a way to go back to OpenWrt, at least using this optimized builds, becuse the process is done apparently right.
