Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

I'm testing rc5 on TP-LINK 1043ND but I have the problem, that after installing backfire 10.03.1 rc5 the wifi is not working. I've used http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … actory.bin.

In LuCi, I see the radio0 device, if I config it, an enable it - it won't start wifi. Does anyone have also troubles with rc5? There are no other modifications.


Have anyone tipps?

regards
jousch

EDIT: after a few tries it works. (manually writing wireless config file helps me)

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

i see there was a new snapshot update released yesterday. how do i merge the rc5 with this new snapshot? or is there a different way to do it from the router directly? im using a windows platform machine.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

I'd just like to thank the developers and all from OpenWrt community!

I've been using 10.03.1-rc5 on a TP-Link 1043ND for over 10 days now, and it is working like a charm. Very nice web interface, fast, reliable and full-featured! Couldn't want more.

Thanks a lot!!! big_smile

I blew away my backfire folder and reloaded the build system for it (6 times to be exact).
I finally managed to get a build completed.

Humm...  Please elaborate how to do this?  I'm having the same problem...
With thanks,

try this first

make distclean

your .config file will be gone after doing this so you'll have to

make menuconfig
and then
make V=99

if that does not work for you just do

rm -rf OpenWrt/backfire


Note: these commands assume a linux system, I have no idea how this stuff works on macrobloat windows

I have the same problem with Trendnet 632. It is supposed to be detected now. Can you please elaborate/attach your wireless config? I tried to write my own but it still does not work.

config 'wifi-device' 'radio0'

    option 'macaddr' '00:91:92:93:94:95'
    option 'hwmode' '11ng'

    list 'ht_capab' 'DSSS_CCK-40'
    option 'disabled' '0'
    option 'channel' 'auto'
    option 'txpower' '27'
    option 'country' 'US'

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

I had the same problem with my TP-Links...

I stumbled across something that may help, manually set the CHANNEL instead of setting it to Auto.

If at all possible, use a channel that has two open channels on each side of it to avoid interference.

I used WiFi-Fo-Fum to see what channels all the APs in the area were using and chose a good free channel.

Once I rebooted it seemed to kick in.

Good luck.

Thanks for the tip.  You were correct. Once I hard coded the channel wifi started working but I lost Ethernet. I backed out of WiFi and lost both. I ended up reflashing to stock factory. This was on trunk, I forgot that I had installed trunk while debugging. I will try RC5 with clean configs again.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

Besides the compile-errors which are clearly being sorted out, I, as an ar7 user, would like to see two things for 10.03.1:-

"kmod-acx-mac80211" unmarked from being broken and set to version 20110704 which now builds and has been reported to work.
I have confirmed this, WPA2 AP on TNETW1130/acx111 going with 20110704 ver of kmod-acx-mac80211, though I most recently installed Trunk, would need to doublecheck my backfire build.
It needs the Makefile changing to turn off @BROKEN and change PKG_VERSION:= from 20110123 to 20110704.

A version without patches 970-972 which break mv88e6060 switches.
https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/8525
(This has been fixed for trunk with its' new 2.6.37 kernel on ar7, but it still makes backfire unusable for some).

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

Hello,
today I have installed Backfire 10.03.1-rc5 to my TP-LINK TL 1043ND.

I have a problem with IPv6 static routing, I am using AYIYA tunnel to SIXXS. I have configured this settings:

- /etc/sysctl.conf ... net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1 ... for static IPv6 routing
- from the router I am pinging ipv6.google.com
- from all stations I am pinging all router interfaces, unfortunately static routing between LAN and SIXXS tunnel do not working.

With stable version 10.03 I had no problem, this problem is after upgrading to 10.03.1-rc5.

Please to help, thanks.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1-rc5

Is it possible to fix the RTSP bugs in 10.03.1 final?
