Hi, i have owned this router for a few months now, and i keep getting disconnection issues. Im using wireguard VPN and DNS crypt. but they dont appear to be the problem. When i goto the logs i get lines of this error.
kern.warn kernel: [444632.768492] nf_conntrack: table full, dropping packet
The router lite will be flashing, and i have to reboot it to get it working again. I have reset it several times. updated it without saving settings. so its on the latest firmware.
Thank you for your feedback.
You can edit /etc/sysctl.conf:
then restart router.
Does your scene require a lot of concurrent network links?
I think when i torrent that must make more connections. ill see if i can edit this file thanks
Ok i have made the changes, for anyone else who needs to do this on linux for the first time.
I downloaded putty
Entered the router IP, then entered username and password and connected with the terminal
I was now at the root.
i typed in
cd /etc and enter
vi sysctl.conf and enter
this opens the file in the terminal,
I then pressed
i so i could edit it and went to the value using the up and down keys.
Then while in edit mode i went to the line
net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_max=65536 and changed it to that value.
Then I pressed escape.
:wq! and enter
that saved it. then i quit and rebooted the router.
This has resolved the issue. Thank you!
If you know winscp it could be much easier
echo “net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_max=65536” >>/etc/sysctl.conf
Is there a contest for what is the easiest?
hah, yea i imagine a lot of people will need to do this as torrenting is common. whatever the best way is write it here to help everyone else.
-perhaps the firmware should be updated to have the higher connection count?
