I hear that hardware offloading is unstable with nftables. Is that still true nowadays? My router GL-iNet MT1300 crashes once a day and I am on snapshot at https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=commit;h=e410833bdd6117228a00aad35bbc56de91f7251e
There is no crashlog unfortunately.
There's only one way to find out - disable offloading and have a look how it behaves then.
up 4 days, 18:58
so there must be a bug in hardware offloading.
That reminds me of this thread about a year ago. Maybe you can find infos inthere.
OpenWrt 22.03.2 is rock stable here (MT7621AT + MT7915 + HW offload).
Even without HW offloading my router still hangs every 3-10days, so I guess there are some other culprits.
Did you use 22.03.2 or still on snapshot?
Snapshot. I updated to the latest snapshot again yesterday and there were some mt76 updates. I will test for a few more days to report again.
Found a pull-request that will switch the used firmware for GL-iNet MT1300.
IMAGE_SIZE := 32448k
DEVICE_VENDOR := GL.iNet
DEVICE_MODEL := GL-MT1300
- DEVICE_PACKAGES := kmod-mt7615e kmod-mt7615-firmware kmod-usb3
+ DEVICE_PACKAGES := kmod-mt7615-firmware kmod-usb3
TARGET_DEVICES += glinet_gl-mt1300
Maybe once this is merged, it will help?
The situation is much worse on the latest snapshot. My router freezes once a day.
Have you tried swapping out the power supply? A bad power supply can cause similar behaviour.
Not sure, but after I updated to the latest snapshot again, the freeze becomes much less frequent, now 3-4days a freeze. I suspect it's caused by multiple SSID in the 2.4GHz wlan interface.
