@donkthemagicllama

Didn't catch that, next build will be done with the CPU optimization. Thx smile

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

Arokh, any comments on the r31071 problems I encountered? Am back at 31054 and running normal now, just curious if it was indeed a build problem and if you found the problem.

I had problems with r31071 as well. I did a failsafe flash reinstall twice and couldn't get it to work. I'll try 31054 tonight.

I had problems with WNDR-3800.
After flashing 31071, router was unavailable.
Revert to 31054

Arokh please add kmod-video-uvc in repositery thanks

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

Just so everyone is clear:

Builds with revision numbers of 31077 and 31071 will soft brick upon installation. The most up to date working build is revision 31054.

Ok, but why?

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

I can confirm the two latest releases seem to be broken, not sure why. The builds stopped after 31054 because of some problem with the toolchain. Normally I don't clean out the toolchain, so I decided it was time to wipe it. Perhaps there's been some changes in trunk that caused it, I don't know. Anyone have a serial port?

Started a build with 3.2.13 just to see if the 3.3 kernel might have been a factor.

Thanks for looking into it, unfortunately I do not have a serial port.

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

looking at 31060 up to 31071 it seems that some major changes to some atheros specific part of the code have been made.
i'm not sure if it can be related at all with the problem here.

Sounds plausible, as I have seen that the router is pingable with r31071 at first, even the WLAN does seem to start for a moment (judging off of the LED behavior) but then the router goes down it seems, only internet and switch LEDs are active at that moment and 192.168.1.1 isn't pingable anymore.

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

@manp

I don't see any changes to atheros code lately, which changeset are you referring to?

Config didn't change at all from r31054 to r31077. The only change would have been a clean toolchain, so the problematic change might have occured some time ago...

Just had a look at Trac myself and I'm not seeing anything that stands out as something that would brick the router?

I don't have serial access or I would have pulled what I could last night.

Interesting. I never saw any WLAN LED behaviour when I tested both r31071 and r31077.

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

That is only for lantiq architecture, while wndr3700 is ar71xx. So, the changes are for another platform.

The ath9k endian-related changes are more suspect, especially taking today's changes into account:

New build is up if anyone wants to try. I can't seem to flash mine right now, as I'm trying to do it through another router because my MBA doesn't have ethernet smile

seems plausible. that check seems to be enabled by default tho. [s]it should be disabled at compile time if i understand it correctly otherwise if that's the root of the problem it would still occur.[/s] i now see that the whole point of 31084 is to add a failsafe that only enable the endian check for lantiq.

i'd be more willing to try a post 31084 build big_smile

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

I tried the last published build (r31081), the result was the same - the router was not available as a firmware r31071.
Wi-Fi 5GHz LED does not light up, attempts to ping the address 192.168.1.1 failed. sad
Thanks.
WNDR-3800.

My own wndr3700 build r31088 (built with default 3.2.12 kernel) works just fine, so I guess that Arokh's next build will also be good again.

nice to hear. so it seems the problem was r31068 and r31084 fixed it.

Good to hear, so you had problems with 31071 on your own builds as well as I understand it? Would really like to use a build with that better CPU thingy in it (got no clue what it does exactly, but better CPU utilization sounds good to me smile ).

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

Hello all,

It seems that changing any thing on the network interfaces (WLAN or LAN) crashes Luci (built 31058). I reset it to the factory default (through Luci).

Anytime I make a change (for instance switching the LAN interface to DHCP or adding a MAC address in white list for WLAN) I have to reboot the router.

Am I missing something? I went through the changeset since 31058 but couldn't notice a fix related to this.

Re: Fully featured OpenWrt build for the WNDR3700

Hi all, after a lot of tests on WNDR3700v2, I saw that the last working release is the (r31054). All the new releases have the same behavoir as described in the other posts.

No, I wrote my message to indicate that ar71xx/wndr3700 source code works in general, using the default kernel and CPU options. I built 31059 and then the next build was 31088. So I never had tested those intermediate versions.
