My question was about a > 19.x version, prefered 22.x, with a special fix/patch for the Western Digital N750?
@hnyman @jow @tmomas, did version 19 have WPA3?
Or a way to install (and perhaps use the custom firmware selector to do so)?
@ all (Has a cause of the anamoly issue been discovered?)
I was running a custom images of 22.03.0 for about a month. Yesterday, I noticed I was getting ash I/O error typing commands and I/O errors attempting to scp to device A. In order to reboot device A, I had to execute 'busybox -reboot'
I had snmpd and Wireguard LuCI packages installed.
I've now flashed an image (without LuCI) to see if that helps
On a second device, I wanted to flash another 22 image with 'tcpdump' included. It merely reboots without flashing. Same extra packages as device A. …
I had no issues with v 19, it did not matter where I downloaded.
did version 19 have WPA3
"did version 19 have WPA3"
"I had no issues with v 19"
-> Same for me, my 2nd WD N750 still run with that version without any problems...
QUESTION IS STILL PENDENT: Is there a customized (custom compiled) v21.x or v22.x version for the WD N750 which has a fix / bypass / workaround for that issues...?
This is the best info I have:
I'm sorry I can't help with further details.
I have been running version 22 on 4 devices. I have been posting updates in the threads about any issues. . 1 2 have experienced 0 issues since flashing (it has the least config/file changes). Longest Uptime: 20+ days thus far (was on Solar/battery and I disconnected yesterday to maintenance the battery)
The 2nd I used a custom firmware (with the packages I need pre installed) I had no issues until one day LuCI and CLI stopped responding except to
busybox. I rebooted and installed a firmware without LuCI.
Uptime: 17 days so far.
Here's the post on all 4 again:
Upgrade from Barrier Breaker 14.07 to latest 21.02 (WD My Net N750) - #36 by lleachii
I provided the link to the Firmware Selector - the downloads site was also provided.
(FYI I have a 5th device that's still running 18 or 19 - I left it untouched for future testing - in case this issue caused flash corruption.)
Devices 1 and 2 have:
base-files busybox ca-bundle dnsmasq dropbear firewall4 fstools kmod-ath9k kmod-gpio-button-hotplug kmod-nft-offload kmod-usb2 libc libgcc libustream-wolfssl logd mtd netifd nftables odhcp6c odhcpd-ipv6only opkg ppp ppp-mod-pppoe procd procd-seccomp procd-ujail swconfig uboot-envtools uci uclient-fetch urandom-seed urngd wpad-basic-wolfssl
This is the default list on the Firmware Selector for 22.02.3.
These work for me without issues.
I've added the following without issues:
wireguard-tools snmpd tcpdump
As I noted 2 devices have 0 issues:
I expect that I will have issues running them if I make major config changes.
I'm still editing configs and uploading;
but I have not attempted to make major changes since I removed LuCI
I will update when I have to change a device by CLI
I made a seperate post regarding creating archives on the command line because of this ongoing problem with the N750 - see:
