Firmware 4.2.x is out as snapshot firmware

No, I’m not using custom image, it’s 4.2.0 beta2

Here is what Multi-WAN looks like, only default settings, only one WAN source (repeater in my case):

Sorry I may have gotten it confused with another post

I thought you were referring to a custom firmware

The only strange thing I see is 8.8.4.4 is googles secondary DNS and usually 8.8.8.8(googles primary dns) is before it. That should not make a difference. But sense you did not make changes something is not loading right I am guessing.

With a fresh install openwrt has google 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. and then Cisco OpenDNS 208,67.222.222(primary) and 208.67.220.220(secondary) as the default DNS

Perhaps try changing(like I have done) to Cloudflare 1.1.1.1, 1.0.0.1 or Quad9 9.9.9.9 149.112.112.112

reverted to 3.214 via uboot or whatever its called the method via ethernet and upload a file, and its still poor speeds, I think my Flint must be broken now, or this paticular version of 3.214 has been modified since I had it installed and now, as speeds are the same as on 4.x

300 mbps download

full fat 750 mbps upload every time

it should be symmetrical

what is going on with this router

ethernet is 990 mbps up
990 down the line is fine

upload wifi is fine

only download wifi is terrible :frowning:

Can confirm I am experiencing similar issue to a lot of users. I created a post and the logs are here.

BIG PROBLEM with 4.1.0 Stable on FLINT.

This firmware leaks DNS after some time. In general after a day or two, the Wireguard connection turns to yellow in the VPN menu and when you check your DNS for leaks, it leaks all over the place.

DO NOT TRUST THIS FIRMWARE!

So Why are you posting in a Firmware 4.2.x SNAPSHOT post and not a stable build post.

Just installed a fresh copy of 4.2 compiled on 1/27 on an Opal and am seeing odd behavior from the modem manager. This is using an EC25-AF in a USB enclosure.

  1. After clicking auto setup, it will change to the connecting prompts, then return to auto setup/manual setup after about 5 seconds. About 10 to 15 seconds later, it will make a connection and display the IP information. On the 1/10 snapshot, I would click auto setup 2 to 5 times and it would eventually connect (instead of waiting 10 to 15 seconds).

It looks like modem manager needs more information messages during the connection process. It briefly flashed “sim not registered” during the 10/15 second wait (once), so apparently it is doing things behind the scenes. It is not displaying any information to the user during connecting and just looks like the modem hung-up. Manual setup still works like a charm on the 1st try.

  1. The modem does not auto connect after a reboot using a prior connection of auto setup or manual connection. Clicking abort and either of the “setups” does connect fine to remedy though. I am only adding an APN on manual setup and changing the service to LTE. No changes are needed on auto setup.

  2. Still seeing a random over-voltage message on 1 out of 3 reboots. Unplugging and replugging in the modem does not restore the modem. A reboot has to be performed. I do not see this symptom on 3.215 and did not see this on the 4.1.1 beta. Are too many components initializing at once on boot?

  3. Using a cloned or manual MAC Address does not seem to be saving. It continues to display the default MAC after applying. I do see the edited MAC in glconfig, but the GL gui and Luci show the default MAC.

  4. More of a feature request, but any chance of getting AT+CGDCONT? added to the list of AT commands in the dropdown?

The modem stays connected for hours after it does connect and maintains the solid white light with no other problems.

Edit: The modem worked fine for several hours today, but this evening, I received over-voltage disconnects while connected. 4.2 is not usable so I’ll reinstall 3.215 and wait for the next round of snapshots/beta for 4.2.

Also, the reboot is timed for exactly how long it takes the Opal to get to 100% on the progress bar, so a page could not be displayed error is shown on the refresh. Adding 5 to 10+ seconds to that (or slowing the progress bar) should allow for seamless reboots. And why doesn’t the progress bar match the blue theme for 4.2?

Specs for EC25-af
Supply Voltage Range 3.3–4.3 V, 3.8 V Typ.
Power Consumption (Typical)
10 μA @ Power off
1.0 mA @ Sleep, Typ.
23.3 mA @ Idle

USB 2.0 specs
In general, the specifications for a USB 1.0 and 2.0 standard downstream port, delivers up to 500 mA or 0.5A

Your out of power spec, unless your usb enclosure is powered which is not mentioned.

You might be doing damage by using it.

Thanks! I flashed back to 3.215 which has never had over-voltage issues on boot or during operation, with me usually having the USB enclosure plugged in 1st, then powering up.

Its just reporting my findings on the beta firmware. The configuration has worked perfectly, with solid connectivity for my use under the 3.x firmwares.

I installed the 4.1.1 beta for a day to test in December and did not see any symptoms either (other than connectivity). I have a Spitz with extroot on 3.215 that I don’t test with, so I can install the snapshots for a day on my Opal to test with no inconveniences. I do like the new UI in the 4.x firmwares though. Lots of nice touches.

Any idea when 4.2 will be released as stable and available for updating my AR750S-Ext (Slate)

Slate Plus previously using latest “stable” firmware 4.1.x…

Makes no sense that stable firmware uses snapshot of ddwrt.

UI not working - most pages at end of tree stuck and fail to return user control. Had to upgrade to beta to see if UI functional. Thankfully yes.

So am happy to be a beta tester out of need. Seems too much complexity of hardware and software models. Makes a single thread like this hard to interpret - everyone has different hardware.

Is there a map simplifying the hardware/software matrix??? Might help to know who is better off in beta than stable.

Please use stable ddwrt in stable firmware.
