Troubleshooting packet loss

Since replacing the router of my ISP with a dedicated modem in bridge mode and an OpenWrt router, I have significant packet loss I'm trying to troubleshoot.

When testing with ping, the packet loss sometimes seems random with up to 80%, sometimes it is very regular, like this test shows:

--- heise.de ping statistics ---
46 packets transmitted, 36 packets received, 21% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 13.029/129.703/2216.467 ms

I also installed tcpdump and looked at the wan traffic, which revealed that indeed my OpenWrt router does not send the ping at all. Here is the filtered output of wireshark showing the ping above.

I tried already two different devices, namely TP-Link TL-WDR3600 v1 and TP-Link Archer C5 AC1200 v1, each with a fresh install of both 21.02.3 and 22.03.0. My ISP uses ds-lite to provide IPv4 and I have to install the ds-lite package to get any access to the internet at all. Both devices show the same packet loss.

So I assume there is a software issue with OpenWrt. How could I troubleshoot this problem?

dmesg doesn't seem to show anything suspicious:

logread contains quite a lot of private information, so I'm not posting it here. One possibly relevant thing I spotted is

Thu Sep 22 18:55:10 2022 daemon.notice netifd: wan6 (2292): cat: write error: Broken pipe
Thu Sep 22 18:55:18 2022 daemon.notice netifd: wan6 (2292): cat: write error: Broken pipe

Thu Sep 22 18:55:50 2022 daemon.notice netifd: wan6 (2292): cat: write error: Broken pipe

There are several bursts like these in the logs. If the whole output of logread is necessary, I'll filter it and post it.

I looked at the traceroute to google.de and picked the first IP not in my network and pinged it aswell as google.de. While there is packet loss to google:

I checked the routes with "ip -6 r" every second while pinging and there was no change in the routes.

Looking at the network neighbors with "ip n s" revealed something interesting:

It seems the first router of the ISP after my network has multiple IPs which are changing state between REACHABLE, DELAY, STALE, INCOMPLETE and PROBE.

And when [fe80::ip2] changes to INCOMPLETE, packets are lost. As soon as it returns to PROBE or DELAY no packets are lost.

I guess I have to investigate the ICMPv6 traffic in more detail and see why OpenWrt has problems with its neighbours.

Installing ip-full and setting the link of [fe80::ip2] manually to PERMANENT via "ip n change [fe80::ip2] dev eth0.2" solves the packet loss, for now. I should figure out why OpenWrt feels not connected to [fe80::ip2]. And why I see multiple routers and which one I'm supposed to use. And why I get errors by ifnetd in logread. And why I don't even get IPv6 access to the internet without installing ds-lite.

I took a look at the ICMPv6 with wireshark. The three link-local addresses [fe80::ip0], [fe80::ip1], and [fe80::ip2] send router advertisements around every 4 seconds, each valid for 12 seconds. This value of 12 seconds might explain why there was connectivity for 12 seconds.

Even when disabling the rate limit for ICMPv6-Input in the firewall, my OpenWrt router feels insecure about the connections

It seems I have to debug the receiving and processing of router advertisements by OpenWrt. If anybody knows where to start, please chime in.

For the sake of helping others find this information, I'll provide some more information. The ISP is the five eyes collaborator Vodafone. I replaced the default Connect Box from Vodafone with the DOCSIS 3.1 modem TC4400-EU.

As a workaround to ensure connectivity, I assured my OpenWrt router to feel connected to its isp neighbors by this script at startup:

while true; do
    ip n c [fe80:ip1] lladdr [isp_mac] dev eth0.2
    ip n c [fe80:ip0] lladdr [isp_mac] dev eth0.2
    ip n c [fe80:ip2] lladdr [isp_mac] dev eth0.2
    sleep 1
    if [ $(ip n s | grep PERMANENT | wc -l) -eq 3 ]; then
        break
    fi
done

To further debug this problem, I undid these settings and restarted the router. The packet loss appeared again. This is now how my router feels about its isp neighbors:

root@OpenWrt:~# while true; do date && ip n s dev eth0.2; sleep 1; done

OpenWrt sends neighbor solicitations. For example

16:02:54.133582 IP6 (hlim 255, next-header ICMPv6 (58) payload length: 32) [my_openwrt_fe80:ip] > [fe80:ip0]: [icmp6 sum ok] ICMP6, neighbor solicitation, length 32, who has [fe80:ip0]
	  source link-address option (1), length 8 (1): [my_openwrt_mac]

and

16:02:55.173570 IP6 (hlim 255, next-header ICMPv6 (58) payload length: 32) [my_openwrt_fe80:ip] > [fe80:ip0]: [icmp6 sum ok] ICMP6, neighbor solicitation, length 32, who has [fe80:ip0]
	  source link-address option (1), length 8 (1): [my_openwrt_mac]

The ISP routers don't respond to that and keep sending router advertisements. Is one party here violating some RFC?
Why am I getting spammed with neighbor solicitations?

RFC4861 - Neighbor Discovery for IP version 6 (IPv6) specifies on page 23

A node sends Neighbor Advertisements in response to Neighbor
Solicitations and sends unsolicited Neighbor Advertisements in order
to (unreliably) propagate new information quickly.

This does not contain keywords like MUST or the like. Is the response obligatory?

There exist RFCs that update RFC4861. Do any of those change the required response to neighbor solicitations?

The workaround of manually marking the peers reachable is still making my connection stable. But now it is also stable without the workaround. I had episodes without packet loss before, only for the issue to come back later.

I expect my workaround to break as soon as my ISP changes the MAC address or router IPs.

The proper solution would be to figure out, what behavior IPv6 mandates, and then expecting the party at fault to change.

It seems to me that a router that advertises itself is obligated to respond to neighbor solicitations, so my ISP would be at fault.

On the other hand, my ISP announces routers that my router can and in fact does use for a while and then refuses to continue to use. Why doesn't my router keep using the routers for the announced lifetime of 12s and refreshes that lifetime for every new router advertisement? OpenWrt should be resilient, especially on the WAN port. I have not figured out yet, how to achieve that.

The packet loss is back, random, and intense.

The dump of ICMPv6 with tcpdump reveals that this time my router did send the ping requests but did not receive the reply. This looks like my ISP messing up. The modem has no errors in the LAN statistics and also the DOCSIS Downstream statistics are not meaningful to me:

Are the many errors in the OFDM channels meaningful?
I don't know what the SNMP log entries mean:

I already called Vodafone in the past to ask about the packet loss, but I couldn't get passed the first level customer support. They denied any help since I was not using their router. I'll call again tomorrow and press that I have data that my router does send the pings.

I power-cycled the modem. Now there is no packet loss. The downstream channel status looks basically the same:
