Hi GL-iNet Developers and Everyone Else,
Well, I am impressed with the new firmware v3.xx update. Thank you for a good firmware upgrade.
I was nervous about updating to this firmware v3.xx because the last firmware update 2.27 killed my minidlna UPNP server that was working before.
Then, after updating to this new firmware v3.xx I could not access the router’s menu anymore although I had access to the Internet, so the update reset the network mode. So, after a mild panic attack, I unplugged the router and plugged it back in, still no menu access. I reset the router a couple times, short reset, long reset, still could not access the router’s menu. Then I reset it again for about 10 seconds, then I could finally access the new router’s menu with firmware v3.xx.
I had to re-configure my Admin login password which works now, and create a new WiFi connection to the parent router with a new WiFi password, etc… And it all works great.
And, I could easily search for “minidlna” and add the application plugins for minidlna, luci-app-minidlna, luci-i18n-minidlna-en (english), and now the router functions perfectly again as a portable DLNA server streaming multimedia content (videos, music, pics) from a USB Stick or a USB drive.
I was never able to get the previous UPnP/DLNA option to work in previous firmware versions, is that because of the parent router’s settings?
What happened to the “wisp” option, is that now part of the “router” network mode? And what happened to the previous UPnP option?
