Hey there, nice to meet you all!
I have a question about my Openwrt x64 laptop/router. My question:
What can I do to lower the power consumption of my router?
What I have already done:
- powertop, changed almost all powersaving options to auto
- Laptop Display removed + 1x ram-stick removed
- unplugged all unnecessary stuff
Additional packages I've installed: (actively running)
- samba server
Additional Info: (Power consumption)
-idle, no networkcable plugged in: 10W
-idle, all cables plugged in (USB-Lan dongle including (rtl8153)): 13W
-idle, after powertop tuning: 11.4W
-full network load, speedtest (1Gbit/s): 19W
-idle, running ubuntu server configured as router: 5.8W ---> Why is this one so much lower compared to Openwrt? Other freq_scaling drivers?
Thank you for reading !
