AR750 Access point stability issues

I’ve set my AR750 up as an acess point and everythign seems to connect as you would expect. However I am having some form of stability issue. Every few minutes when I go to a web page it just stops responding. Whats really odd is that if I’m streaming something the stream never seems to break.

Its as if the DNS look up is failing which is odd because my windows is set manually to 8.8.8.8.

Further to this when I run a speedtest from time to time it will do the download test perfectly and then fail on the upload test.

The wifi stays connected the whole time and even when a website is not responding the router’s interface works perfectly. There is nothing in the log (all I can see is me connecting to the box and then no other messages).

I’m running 3.0.27

Anybody got any idea what on earth is going on? Its driving me mad …

Did you set up any vpn on the router?

Nope its purely connected to my router. Its got an ip address, and I get an IP address for my machine. Its just it seems to lose the connection and nothing gets reported in the log that I can see …

that said I am getting the following message every couple of minutes:

daemon.err odhcp6c[2086]: Failed to send DHCPV6 message to ff02::1:2 (Permission denied)

Accessing the router from the main wifi doesn’t ever seem to give me connection failures … its only accessing the internet when connected to the wifi on the access point.

Can you let me know if you set up “Access Point” which means a bridge to your main router? or you mean just connect cable from mini router’s wan to your main router’s lan?

We have a snapshot firmware which should not have these ipv6 problems https://dl.gl-inet.com/firmware/snapshots/20201119/ar150/

Can you try and let me know?

Yes it IS access point mode ip addresses are given out by my main router.

I’m running an AR750 so is the snapshot up to date for that too?

I’ve updated to the snapshot firmware. I’m going to run it in router mode for a bit and see how it goes … then I’ll switch to acess point and see if becomes unstable again.

ok so i switched to access point and I’m back to having connection issues. Router mode works perfectly so I’ve reverted to that for now. Going to have to see if I can set up the subnet masks to make the 2 networks accessible to each other …

Ok I’ve switched to the beta1 firmware. But I’m still getting the same problems. In fact, having used it in standard router mode I’m noticing it can be a bit stuttery. Sometimes websites can be a bit slow to respond. It doesn’t drop out completely though like in access point mode.

It always seems to be when initiating a new connection so I wonder if its DNS lookup related? But thats a total guess.

I don’t know why but should not be dns problem.

When in AP mode you can find its IP in your main router. Can you ssh to it and check the log?

Which log in particular?

just “logread” is fine.
