Support for RTL838x based managed switches

Do you just get no network, but working serial terminal, or does the device hang completely when trying to reboot? The port LEDs aren't supported yet, so it's no surprise those aren't working.

Could you test if you can get it working with these extra patches? (And please reply there with a Tested-by tag if it works)

My soldering equipment and skills are unfortunately not up to adding serial pins where it looks like they could be soldered - I'd just end up shorting them all together. I've never built my own OpenWrt images either (though it's probably past time I learn). I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

I checked out your master branch and added the image profile to the Makefile, and changed the partition label, compatible and openwrt,ih-magic properties in the existing DTS. Boot hangs:

So I recreated the patch for PHY_MAX_ADDR:

--- a/drivers/net/phy/mdio_bus.c
+++ b/drivers/net/phy/mdio_bus.c
@@ -566,7 +566,7 @@ int __mdiobus_register(struct mii_bus *b

-       for (i = 0; i < PHY_MAX_ADDR; i++) {
+       for (i = 0; i < 52; i++) {
                if ((bus->phy_mask & (1 << i)) == 0) {
                        struct phy_device *phydev;

This causes a kernel panic:

Could you try this branch out:

if you select 8390 as the sub-architecture, you can directly build an image for the GS1900-48. Careful, the images will end up at a slightly different sub-directory for the 8390. Also SMP is enabled on the 8390 with a second processor available. It is the latest and greatest I worked on for the 8390 with the GS-1900-48 as the test device for the work we did on the 9300 and 9310. If the fix for the VLAN is not in there, then it probably did not exist. Sorry to send you around on this chase, I really would like to be more helpful but I am already stuck at sub-sub-task: I wanted to work on the SerDes code of the 10G SFP phys of the USW switch and currently I am adding SMBus support for SFP-modules :worried:

Heads up to everyone using master builds, the default network configuration has changed in master!

@bmork's patch to revert the config to standard OpenWrt behaviour got merged, so now the switch will default once again to address 192.168.1.1, accessible on all switch ports without a VLAN tag.

https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=commitdiff;h=9e7149f729e9b7b18a2ad0e7ba9d939f678e3eac;hp=889043a155dac4e329d0698ef5f67d44b1865ab5

Fooken finally! I understand the possible need for VLAN-tagged defaults for more advanced users, but a lot just want the first install to be painless, plug and play (aside from the usual OpenWrt limitations like WiFi being disabled by default on devices that support it). It took me a solid 20 minutes every time I had to reset my switch just to get things up and running. Hell, in case of a switch I'd even go one step further and have it set up as DHCP client only, no static IPs. Pretty much no switch will be used as a gateway (except in very rare circumstances), default behaviour should mirror this.

I presume this defconf change should not affect already configured devices, right?

But then why shouldn't the same be done for e.g. access point devices with only one port? Even though the static address can be a bit annoying (depending on the network you start the device in), having the same defaults for all devices at least has be benefit of being clear and easier to document.

If you keep your settings on sysupgrade, this won't affect you, no.

Are there any devices supported by OpenWrt (sans the Unifi APs) that are truly "just AP" mode? Most of the devices supported are routers, so the default config works well, and through the WAN port, it's easy to access and reconfigure the target. So yeah, I think APs should also be in a DHCP-client-only mode, which is why I proposed a few months back to have "role specific" config packages in the repo, which would allow one to build a custom image (via ImageBuilder or ASU), and the default role of the device bundled (so e.g. AP-only devices would get an AP-only profile (no DHCP server, no firewall config, IP received via DHCP), routers would get the current profile, switches would have a similar config to AP-only, without wireless, et cetera).

Good to know, I was worried that the default config change would affect an already running system adversely.

Aside from the Unifi APs, I've ported the TP-Link EAP series, and before that the TP-Link CPEs were also supported. So there's plenty of non-router devices supported by OpenWrt, none of them get a special treatment. But let's stick to discussing the Realtek switches here :upside_down_face:

Hello - I'm new to this topic of OWRT on switches. I have a couple of older 1910-24 and one or two 1900-24. Are those devices available in master? I don't mind doing a bit of work to get those in to master if the chipset support is already there. Edit: Looks like 1900-24 is theoretically supported.

Questions:
How is LAG and LACP in OpenWRT? I have practical use of LAGs between some switches to achieve higher bandwidth and redundancy. Is this configurable via (Luci) GUI?

Is Allnet ALL-NAS200 SG8316 (theoretically) supported? I had to write to Zyxel and ask why we cannot find ZyXEL 1900-16 in Europe. It's the ONLY ZyXEL managed switch which fits the 10 inch racks. But they don't sell it in Europe. So this German Allnet is a great (and ONLY) substitute. The TOH shows ALL-SG8208M is in, but that's no guarantee.

Edit: Looks like SG8316 is theoretically supported.

If boot-up detects max_addr as 48 ports, probing up to 52 is possibly a problem, which propagates into the DSA. Try changing PHY_MAX_ADDR to 49 and see how that goes.

At the moment there is no support in OpenWRT master. But code is available in brainslayer's repository, see the various links above. There is no immediate plan to merge this into master as that code also uses SMP and that does currently not work well (or at all ) on all 4 SoC generations.

thanks @anon13997276.

Could you try my branch sfp_10g on the USW switch? I used what you had found out (great work!) and fixed some things in the switch driver.

Now I get all the SFP+ modules up with a 10GBit SFP+ module. I am not able to use 1GBit modules, also with the original firmware. Also a 10GBit DC cable does not work, which however works on the original firmware. There is also something funny about port 5, the SFP module cannot be read out. But The external GPIOs on the PCA9555a chips work nicely. I added an I2C driver and I2C muxer to the code.
Could you explain how you sniffed the JSON protocol of the communication with the STM microcontroller for the small touch-screen?

@svanheule with the right .dts this should also work on the XGS1250.

Yes. Disappeared for a bit, got a booster shot and local holidays. Will try that branch today, can also clean up the current state I had and share. As for the JSON protocol, mainly observed via strings on the OEM binary. Killing the binary and seizing the UART in the OEM firmware kind of works, but I think the best thing to do would be to make a small interceptor with a promicro32 or similar, that can can MITM the lines (I think it's the two with pull ups on the STM32F side).

Small note, updating KERNEL_PATCHVER is required in targets/linux/realtek Makefile, it was defaulting to 5.4 on this branch

Using a copper (10GBase-T) SFP, I'm not seeing traffic passing. ethtool shows '500B' received on lan1 (and the ethtool properties look sane), which is better than I was getting. I can try a DAC or fiber later.

Possibly this:

[    5.681418] rtl83xx-switch switch@1b000000 lan1 (uninitialized): validation with support 0000000,00000000,00006440 failed: -22

I encountered similar issues on my patch, there were some hardcodes in dsa.c and friends IIRC causing validation to fail, but haven't looked at this branch.

This is an "issue" with the .dts, which wants a 10g fibre:
phy-mode = "10gbase-kr";
The copper SFP very likely has a PHY on board which would need to be accessed via the I2C bus connecting to the SFP module. Unfortunately the I2C hardware of the RTL9300 only speaks SMBus. We are not the first to hit that problem:
https://bootlin.com/blog/sfp-modules-on-a-board-running-linux/
I added SMBus support for the SFP module itself along the lines of these patches, but I did not add that for a PHY on such a module. In fact I even disabled I2C for any such PHY on an SFP module. My impression is that the Linux kernel is not able to do any auto-detection of SFP modules of a type different than the one given in the .dts. Please try the 10G Fibre module, that is what works for me.

I think this is one the issues the i2c demuxer tries to solve. You could have two pins, which can be muxed as GPIO or as SMBus master. Then, for these pins, you specify two I2C masters: a bitbanged master using the GPIO functionality to provide a fully functional I2C bus, and the SMBus master for hardware offloading when possible.

Of course, this also requires a proper pincontroller to be implemented, and those tend to be quite a bit of code :confused:
