Being on this new 4.5.6 beta for a few hours already 160Mhz on the 5Ghz band seen a bit more stable for me or maybe it’s just a placebo effect :face_with_peeking_eye:

The 2.4Ghz still sucks speed wide, but it’s stable.

The jury still out :thinking:

Edit. One thing I just noticed, a few of my AC devices don’t want to connect when AC/AX mode it’s selected, to make them connect I had to select N/AC/AX mode I fell I’m going backwards instead :person_facepalming:


Does have block list filter in adguard dns server, just add upstream in your AdGuard Home to save memory :wink:

Thanks.

I also 3D Printed a USB Cover with copper tape all around it, and I also added the copper tape on the tip of the USB Flash Drive.

My internet speed increased from almost nothing to 35Mbps (Download) & 15Mbps (Upload).
It’s better, but still very far from 300Mbps.

The ping is very weird. It’s around 500ms (Download) and 1500ms (Upload).



Thanks

The range of your Flint2 is reasonable?

I’m comparing it against my old ISP Router/Modem built with leagacy Broadcom 63138, 4366 and 43602 chipsets, and my Flint2 is always 6~10dB weaker than it :frowning:

They are on the same place (30cm from each other) and my mobile phone was 5m distant, in a straight line without any obstable between them.

Just to make sure if this is happening only on my side.

P.S. no USB device is connected to the USB port

What power setting and country code do you use for the Wi-Fi?

Of ocurse it’s on the MAX TX Power.
Country code is GB/UK

I have the same problem, the only firmwares I can get similar range are 4.5.2 and 4.5.3 beta, otherwise the wifi range is not strong.

Hello luochongjun, you mentioned ethernet fixes but there’s nothing in the release notes for the beta - will these be refined later?

I just know that the relevant fixes cause performance degradation, so we haven’t merged them in yet, and I’m very sorry for the error message!

Could you guys please update the Tor and Nginx packages?

Your current Tor version is 0.4.6.8, which is from October 2021 and your Nginx version is 1.17.7, which is from December 2019. And both applications have had a lot of general fixes and security fixes applied within the last 5 years.

Tor changelog / Nginx changelog

And I haven’t tested this myself since I’m currently using OpenWrt snapshots, but if you change the routers IP address does that prevent Tor from working? It looks like it would, since you’ve preconfigured it to use 192.168.8.1 instead of something like 127.0.0.1.

Gl inet limited the maximum allowed tx power. Before 30dbm was possible. Check your current tx power in Luci under Wireless overview and click under your Wifi controller on Edit, General setup. In the stats you can see the current Tx-power. I can provide some screenshots later

Firmware: 4.5.5
Max TX Power at 2.4GHz is 20dBm
Max TX Power at 5GHz is 26dBm

Wireless overview:

Yeah I know, and I was happy when transmission power was 36dbm default. Even if it shows 36dbm on luci, I believe was the correct transmission power equivalent with 30dbm. Otherwise other router with same configuration shows a much higher signal ( again, with the same country configuration). It’s another thing GL needs to fix

Does this new beta fix the sub 100Mbps 2.4ghz speed?

Unfortunately… Not yet
