As I wrote, the VPN established and the connections works for a couple of seconds but after the first 3 seconds it stops working.
Do you mean the parental control switch works backwords on is off and off is on? But even so, why ist the hardware switch not working anymore as soon as parental control is activated. And is doing nothing even not in the wrong direction.
@K3rn3l_Ku5h I’m using ExpressVPN via OpenVPN and I’m using ipv4. Honestlay I don’t know if the VPN config file contains upstream DNS to use. I used the settings and config file with firmware 4.1.2 and all worked very well. I haven’t changed anything but upgrading the router.
@hansome Thanks for your advise. I did a factory reset and setup the router from scratch. Now the VPN seems to work fine again. There is still the hiccup with the not working hardware switch if parental control is turned on. But I can wait for a fix for that. VPN is more important to me. Waiting for the new firmware revision you mentioned in your post.
@hansome I saw there is a new beta (4.2.1 relase 2) flying around. Can you recommend to install and try it out or should I better wait for the stable relase and how long do you think will it take to get a stable revisison. Can spend some information what’s got fixed in the new beta?
@hansome any updates in this regard?
Sent you the requested data last week.
I also resetted the router to factory settings again. Still with 4.2.1 R2. Now I see other WiFi networks again. Since it’s always a bit time consuming to set up the entire router or to flash 5he latest stable revision I haven’t done so far.
Do you have any advise or new findings what’s the issue?
Thank you for providing the backup file. I have reviewed it and found no special settings.
However, I discovered that version 4.2.1 has a bug related to setting the WiFi channel. This causes problems with both the WiFi and the repeater, indicating a software issue. Regarding the cable issue you mentioned, we need more time to test and observe, but it more likely is a software issue related to high system load.
I recommend using firmware version 4.2.0 stable (without keep-setting) for now. When version 4.2.1 becomes stable enough, I will inform you.
@hansome does that apply to the GL-MT3000 as well?
Asking because my wifi repeater is super unpredictable and drops connections intermitently (see my latest post on the tech support channel), so I’m wondering if there’s an undelying major sw issue causing several wifi issues reported by me and many other folks?
