Firmware 3.211 Beta1

I loaded the 3.211 Beta1 on my GL-MT1300.

The file openwrt-mt1300-3.211-1112.bin caused significant issues. My first attempt was using the “Save Settings” option during the upgrade. After the update, the router IP defaulted to I was able to log on but none of the menu items worked and it would not connect to the saved wireless access point as a repeater. Hard wiring it to my router did allow me to access the internet.

The same issue was seen after a flash through uboot and clean install.

The file openwrt-mt1300-newdriver-3.211-1112.bin does seem to work. I have it installed now and I’m testing it today (before my next trip in about a week…). No issues so far on either 2.4G or 5G.

What is the “new driver” part of this release?

I have the same problem with the non-newdriver one.

The newdriver one comes with updated mtk wifi driver.

I have confirmed the problem you reported and am trying to solve it.

Thanks for your feedback, I have removed MT1300 from the beta folder and kept the NewDriver version, it should work better.

Wifi driver upgraded from 5.0.3 to 5.1.0

How do I upgrade OpenWrt to 21.02 now after upgrading to this firmware 3.211

You can upload openWRT 21.02 firmware directly and upgrade it.

I did that but afterwards there was no Gl-iNet firmware, just OpenWRT.
I would like to keep original interface and have latest OpenWRT at the same time.

There is no way to do this, if you want to use our UI you have to use our firmware.

@luochongjun all clear now, thank you for clarification.


What version of ZeroTier does this 3.211 beta1 or beta2 firmware have?

Thank you!

For some reason the VPN policy’s are being ignored, as far I know I didn’t have any issues related to this with the previous firmware

Really. This firmware fixed a problem of vpn polcy during router reboot. Hope it does not cause further problems. Can you give more details of your vpn policy settings?

This version is great

Nevermind, I just find out I can have it both ways, it’s either mac or domain
