Download link is not working for me, could you share image on a different server?
Also if you could share patching instructions for 21.02 to be able to compile images and test I would appreciate.


21.02.0 updated.

From the topic title:


Do you mean Mega bit or Mega Byte?

" The file you requested has been deleted".


21.02.0 - FexNet will be accessible within one week.

MB (megabyte) flat, you are right.

Thanks a lot!
Just curious what causes the performance degradation, whether it is because the software flow offloading is disabled due to the bug in 21.02.0.

I think it is due to Linux kernel 5.x requires more powerful hardware.
I'm not sure but ath9330 does not have hardware acceleartion for traffic flow.
