Re: OpenWRT Kamikaze on TP-link tl-wa501g?
As i said before i have plenty of space.
Mode 1: everything is bridge. one tagged vlan and one untagged have 320KB free space
Mode 2: bridge/iptables/dhcp .... router mode with WAN i have 120KB free space
I do not need space ! I need speed
Mode 2 is useless because we can make 1-2MB maximum with lan cable. Normally we should make 8-9MB.
The problem comes from iptables and software routing. I did all tests with torrents. On single connection you can make 2.5MB. Torrents are the best test. You have hundreds of connections or more.
According to marvell specs:
"2.2 Routing with the Marvell® Header
The detailed information regarding this feature requires an NDA with Marvell Semiconductor. Please contact your
local Marvell Sales Representative for more information."
May be there is something inside the chip which can help but will need reverse engeneering or lot's of driver fixes.
Conclusion: TPlink 340GD with nat/router is too slow comparing to the original software. At least 4-5 times more slower. No sense to use router mode with openwrt for now.
