I’m using the GL-B1300 as an edge router wired only. I have openwrt-18.06.4 on there and everything works great except that it will not boot when connected to either of my tp-link switches. I can tell from the status lights that it never gets past uboot, and the ping times are uboot’s as openwrt has higher latency. I’m wondering if this is a known issue and whether it has anything to do with openwrt? Is there a way to upgrade uboot if that is the issue and there is a newer version?
any help is appreciated. thanks.
I should add that it’s entirely possible that the issue is traffic on the network trying to reach 192.168.1.1 which is the default IP uboot comes up with, so it seems possible that some of those packets are triggering uboot to go into a state that prevents boot. There is no DHCP server or TFTP server on that network, but there are going to be PPP packets on the WAN side looking to reestablish that connection and TCP/IP packets on the LAN side from existing connections.
