I've recently (like yesterday) started working with openwrt ( I am currently using dd-wrt)
I have 2 tp-link a6's (not the ones with dd-wrt, these are new), so I'm using the latest snapshot to gain support.
(I looked at the release images, but from what I could see from the names, it doesn't incorporate the latest changes)
So I've encountered 2 rather strange problems....
While running opkg update was fine in the beginning, but it times out now.
So, I tested it with wget via ssh, sure enough if I do
it times out....
if I do...
This happens on both routers. This one leaves me totally clueless...it worked in the morning under the same network setup, now in the afternoon it does not,
with no changes at all, just a couple reboots because I had to physically move them.
I should point out that a laptop connected to either router can download the package manifests,
EDIT additionally, I wiped out one of the routers (firstboot) and now it runs ok...but we'll see for how long? Installed luci....
EDIT already stopped working after about 90 minutes
My second issue it on one of the routers, installed packages have disappeared. Like luci just decided to be gone, no trace, no service entries, nada.
The configs I used luci concerning network, etc are still there, it just is gone, along with anything else I installed.
And, no, I didn't do a sys upgrade in the meantime and all actually configuratioj done by me is there, just not even the libraries related to stuff I installed (like wavemon...libncurses) is there.
