Topic: DGND3700 switch configuration / Ethernet fail
Hopefully someone can tell me where I'm going wrong with this one, its not my first OpenWRT device but, I'm at a bit of a loss, firstly some details .... as the board has no working Ethernet configuration , I'm building from trunk so that I can include extra packages when flashing, the build is Bleeding Edge, r37482 and I am of course using ttl-serial access, my primary issue revolves around the Ethernet, or lack thereof. The switch behaves perfectly during CFE, accepting pings from all 'lan' ports but not the wan, and it functions quite happily as a 'dumb bridge' passing data between my pc and the rest of the network while they are both connected to the 'lan ports' ( no traffic passing by if one cable is connected to the 'wan' port ), but after CFE, the router will not respond at all to the Ethernet. it seems to be detected at boot indicated by :
[ 0.564000] b53_common: found switch: BCM63xx, rev 0
but start to go haywire when the interface is brought 'UP', the command
swconfig dev eth0 show | grep port
ports: 0x0136 link: port:0 link:down link: port:1 link:down link: port:2 link:down link: port:3 link:down link: port:4 link:down link: port:5 link:down link: port:6 link:down link: port:7 link:down link: port:8 link:up speed:1000baseT full-duplex
but if I remove the file /etc/config/network ( stopping it from automatically upping the interface ) it gives
ports: 0x0136 link: port:0 link:down link: port:1 link:up speed:10baseT half-duplex auto link: port:2 link:up speed:10baseT half-duplex auto link: port:3 link:down link: port:4 link:up speed:1000baseT full-duplex auto link: port:5 link:down link: port:6 link:down link: port:7 link:down link: port:8 link:up speed:1000baseT full-duplex
robocfg supplies the following error in any state
probing eth1 SIOCETHTOOL[ 35.392000] bcm63xx_enet: could not find a used port with phy_id 0, assuming phy is external : No such device probing eth0 phyid: No such device bcm53xx_probe: No such device
Leading me to wonder whether the devices 'board parameters' are correct in its description of the switch ?
Anything other than outright flaming would be appreciated ....
if you made it reading this far and understood any of that, thanks
