Currently the unit is working on a 50/5 connection both radios are functioning and sending/receiving full bandwidth and since this is very new I understand that some luci-app will not be included yet, I had one reboot so far but since the unit has been up for 15hrs.
Mac addresses coincide with stock.
I had bought this unit from an ebay seller he added that it had failed to update from Netgear firmware upgrade and was stuck, after troubleshooting and correcting the problem I was able to flash an earlier Netgear build, from their I had compiled the current snapshot openwrt-imagebuilder-ramips-mt7621.Linux-x86_64 and here I am with asking if the netdev will work properly or just stick to the docs and work things out if a dev can give some advice to properly determine the best course of action would be helpful?
Are the LEDs working for you? I have an R6800 (of which the R6700 v2 is a clone AFAIK) and e.g. I have no wireless LEDs working (both radios active) and the LAN LEDs only work when the device boots up with a device attached to the corresponding port.
I see on other MT7621 devices that the LEDs are working as intended, but the whole GPIO expander thing might mean the R6800 / R6700 v2 / ... line works in a different way. See also:
When I get home, I'll be able to work on it some more, basically I'm going to to be using the documentation as it has what I'm looking for for now.
So far and as mentioned wireless performance is working fine for my bandwidth rates provided from my provider and the photo is basically how the led's are displaying no blinking activity when all ports are being used wan is connected as well of course, currently the kmod-leds-gpio and kmod-usb-ledtrig was included when compiled and so maybe not sure but adding one of the other kmod-ledtrig could used? I will do some testing this evening,
Okay none of the documentation suggestions didn't work for me, also using the snapshot builds doesn't allow me to install other kmod ledrig to experiment with, does this mean I can "git pull" add to the config with the kmod ledtrig compile and troubleshoot test?
Aren't there some commands to use when flashing, I can tftpboot upload the firmware but I don't know the commands to flash upgrade the stock firmware?
Thanks for any answers that can help me flash back to stock, I know the snapshot hasn't developed all the way yet and would like to continue testing, it just that going back to stock should be documented for now as well.
Okay since those kmod triggers have been removed, I see that the led gpio are in mt7621_netgear_sercomm_bzv_dtsi for the r6700v2 but the only two led that were semi working were the power(orange) and lan led(white) that was not blinking, nothing helped to change or bring the remaining led online after making changes in uci.
Hopefully the documentation will help me to figure it out.
Where are the current commits for work done on the R6700v2 MT7621 can it be found at git.openwrt.org and do a search?
I'm still not able to get the led situation with the kmod-leds-gpio to work this is kinda new to me, has anyone with similar netgear specs to this mt7621 been able to successfully configure their wan, lan, wifi led's?
If you compile yourself, you can just add this patch, if not, you'll have to be patient. It turns out this driver cannot be compiiled as a module so there's some input from the devs needed on how to proceed, since this would enable it for all MT7621 devices.
Thank you Borromini for the information, it's been tricky to get the led's to function properly and as you stated "some input from the devs needed on how to proceed" would be helpful, the R6700v2 currently is running great for my needs but in time full support will be available one day, for now I can wait, have you tried compiling the patch for the other Netgear MT7621 model?
