Unofficial OpenWrt (swconfig) for the Linksys EA9500 and EA9400

Hey mate,

Just switched over from npcomplete's one to yours to see if it's any better/worse :slight_smile:
While I have no idea what the flash partitions patch is supposed to do, I installed 19.07.3 rev2 with it. I noticed there's a UBI Mounter link in my treeview (using luci material theme), which I'm assuming is associated with it. However, when I click it, I get the following error:

/usr/lib/lua/luci/dispatcher.lua:1334: module 'luci.cbi' not found:
	no field package.preload['luci.cbi']
	no file './luci/cbi.lua'

	/usr/lib/lua/luci/dispatcher.lua:478: in function </usr/lib/lua/luci/dispatcher.lua:477>

I flashed your version through the webinterface and made sure I unticked the "keep config". Did I miss something else? Is it a simple RTFM/PeBCaK?

Cheers

Try installing luci-compat to see if that fixes it - otherwise, please just ignore it for now lol, I think I have to rewrite the module and include clear instructions on how to use the extra mtd partition.

Yep, installing luci-compat fixed it. Still no idea what it does, but at least I'm getting a screen instead of an error :wink: I'll play around a bit more over the weekend. Thanks for your hard work so far!

Hello again!

flash partitions patch - this patch doesn't work at all!

I tried your releases with this patch, also built my own - kernel just rebooting =((

P.S. - I will provide log of booting, but later...

Hey everyone, this is a long overdue update on my build. I am using a EA9400 router using Hurrian's build. I'm actually impressed by his build and been running it for a month now. I have no complaints whatsoever, only issue I had was my 5ghz network only goes thru 20mhz band. On paper its looks bad but when I actually did some iperf test and internet speedtest, it really didn't matter at all I still could get higher speeds than expected and I'm definitely happy with it. I have a setup of Multiple-SSID and VLANS based off different devices in my network. I have a 2 Main SSID 2.4ghz/5ghz for my main computers and smartphones/ipad in my network which has access to all the devices with the help of firewall rules. Another 2.4ghz/5ghz SSID for my IOT devices such as Chromecast, Pi-hole and other things that needs internet but cannot access my main network and router. Another 2.4ghz/5ghz SSID for my IOT devices that has no internet access, I don't want them to ping home so they're just connected to my network but couldn't talk to other devices other than the ones in the same subnet but can be seen by my main devices. My last SSID 2.4ghz/5ghz is for guest network, same thing as my IOT with internet but can access some ip address specific devices such as my chromecast. But can easily be taken out if I hate them with my firewall rules lol I'm still planning to add a VPN SSID for remote access using OpenVPN. I know its easy its just that I got lazy. Hahahaha. I'm working on other stuff on build my home network and NAS, I'll keep you guys posted.

Here are some screenshots of my setup,
I have a 400mbps/20mbps download and upload speed.


I'm actually a noob on this some of my firewall rules may not be up to your standards but I did my own testing on it and it didn't talk to any of my other devices in my main network and I tried to access my router using my other SSID as expected it didn't work. Let me know if you have any suggestions or questions.

Credtis to @hurrian and @npcomplete for helping me out on this build. I appreciate you guys for making it work on my EA9400 router!

Btw, I was able to install the official build but was discourage by the DSA config since this is my first time using Openwrt, early on I got intimidated by it lol But I'm not taking it off yet, I might try it later on once I feel like I'm ready and considering I've had a stable router for a month now and if anything goes wrong I definitely would have the knowledge now to do it.

Also, I updated my firewall rules since Main1 and Main 2 didn't talk to each other when they're on the same firewall so I added two new firewalls. Now they could talk to each other, I actually made a rookie mistake on separating my 2.4ghz and 5ghz network on my VLA. I guess it made it actually better so now every devices connected on my network is noticeable just by its IP address.

Did you follow the instructions from above? I did mine first by flashing the official build then flashing it again with Hurrian's. It was actually easier since he already included the driver for our router that was different on EA9500. I can't remember the name lol I also never flash mine using the LUCI web app.

Hello, sorry it didn't work out for you!

I believe I had to patch the kernel differently the first time to format the free space as ubifs (iirc, by adding fake magic bytes to the partition driver), and then patch it again to actually recognize the partition properly after being formatted as ubifs.

I will be removing the ubifs builds in the future, as they also break sysupgrade (it wrongly recognizes OSes installed in the second OS flash partition).

Will have to look into a better way of enabling use of the free space on the NAND.

Ok. Thx for replies

Heya! I downloaded and flashed the most recent 19.07.4 build (at least twice), however my router (still) states it's in 19.07.3 build after flashing. Did I miss something?

Bottom right states:

Powered by LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (git-20.272.48698-9883bb3) / OpenWrt 19.07.3 r11063-85e04e9f46

Hello! Did you flash the UBIFS data partition capable build previously?
I have found that this often breaks sysupgrade/makes it do a no-op, which is why I removed it for now.

Good question! Maybe? Anyway to check whether or not I did?
And if I did, would I need to flash through the cable, or can I still flash it through either the GUI or SSH?

Check /proc/mtd, if you see mtd9 (brcmnand) then you've flashed the UBIFS-capable build.

To flash 19.07.4, please back up your configuration and use mtd to write the update into mtd3 (firmware).

Cheers, I do have mtd9

Using mtd to write to mtd3 (firmware), do I simply use "mtd write {filename} firmware" in SSH? Where {filename} obviously is the firmware that I've uploaded to the router?

*Edit: Yep, it was that simple. mtd write {filename} firmware, and I'm now running the .4 version
Uploaded my config, now I'll need to reconfigure extroot and grab some packages again, because that apparently didn't get stored in the backup :slight_smile:

OK this is my first time messing with Openwrt... I have used ddwrt for years but I picked up these EA9400 for like $35 dollars when Linksys decided to clear their refurb stock. So now I have 3 and since they are not DDwrt compatible, I'm trying this.
It took a little doing but I got the sucker cracked open and flashed without any problems that I was aware of and then I sit down with the documentation to configure it... first thing is setup the wifi... and I'm against the wall... Ive been all over every screen and I cannot find anyplace where the wifi radios are even mentioned let alone someplace where I can config them. I feel like a moron because I'm not the guy who ever posts requests for help, the answer is out there... I can find it... but this time... I dont have weeks to put into the learning curve (old dog) Ive only been on Linux full time for a couple years and I moved to qubes really rapidly so I already have a steep curve I'm climbing. So I'm hoping yall can provide me with a shortcut to an answer.
My gut says that the flash messed up somehow so I'm going to attempt a reflash. but shouldnt there at least be a menu item for the wifi? Do I need to take several post install steps to download and install specific packages before it will work?

my gut also says to reflash this puppy back to stock and sell it on Ebay and go buy a Nighthawk like any rational person would have done in the beginning

What software version did you flash?
Please note that I did not build 19.07.4 for EA9400, as nobody has requested it.

You can download 19.07.3 for EA9400 here (click link).
Please use the "EA9400, Standard" software package - I no longer support the version with the flash partitions patch.

Reinstall this firmware version from the serial terminal using the steps in the 1st post.

If you have not yet previously used OpenWrt, radio configuration is available under Network (top bar) > Wireless.
Unlike dd-wrt and Tomato, OpenWrt does not turn on the wireless radios by default, so you will need to configure and enable them on a fresh install.

i flashed openwrt-19.07.3-bcm53xx-linksys-ea9400-squashfs.trx
and thats the problem, there are several choices on the network menu,
wireless is not among them.
I will reflash today and let you know how that goes

thanks
