GL-MT6000 Uboot

Hello,

I own the GL-MT6000 router and today I decided to migrate to OpenWrt by the method using Uboot Debrick via Uboot - GL.iNet Router Docs 3 everything was set according to the recommendations in the attached link, but I noticed that packets were being lost on the ping with attached information, I received this device with Uboot with problems?
You can see that after installation the ping was normal!

attached to the settings with the network card, it is something strange in my configuration to disturb Uboot?

It is normal for it to work like this, what can I do to see where the problem is?

Mine is X3000 and suffering from the same Uboot problem! And we hope GL can comment ton this issue!!

For me, I can reach the Uboot web interface and upload my firmware file. But once it reboots, my old firmware with all the settings are unchanged.

I tried again to access Uboot and returned to the GL-MT6000 firmware, strangely I can only access Uboot from Lan2, this happened from the first attempt!

The same problems after the firmware is written, the normal ping on the router!

To write on Uboot, does the length of the cable between the PC and the router matter?
Honestly I opted for a cable with a length of 1M, the same configuration as the original and it is newly bought!

Nope. CAT5e, CAT6, CAT7 is fine - as long as it’s less than 125m and STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) instead of UTP (bc UTP is crap.)

So, it seems in your second recording the modem has been updated, right?!

every time the update was done correctly, but the Uboot interface loses ping and disconnects, I did everything at my own risk!
strange, after installing OpenWrt and Flint 2, the router no longer loses packets :upside_down_face:

That’s normal behavior as long as the firmware file gets uploaded and its checksum verified by Uboot.

yes, but you saw in the video capture how it blocked and loses ping, I no longer have access from the browser?!

This is normal with Uboot!

Uboot is just an emergency system. As soon as the image file is uploaded, it will start checking the integrity and then start flashing the image to the memory. When this is done, the system will reboot into the newly flashed image.

Or it might just end the process so you have to reboot by yourself.

yes, I understand what you’re saying, but when you access it in the browser, it must not be stable until you manage to open the path to the file you want to upload?

Can’t tell, never used uboot.

I would assume “yes” but my experience shows me that some devices are more edgy than others. Ping isn’t really important because you use HTTP. So it might be fine when ping fails.

yes, what you say is interesting, but still this ping respects the call address for Uboot!

Ping uses ICMP and works entirely different from HTTP (TCP/80)
So it’s fine when ping fails sometimes. There are even devices you can’t ping but still work with.

As long as uboot does it’s job, no need for worries.

Interesting what you say, maybe someone from the support staff can clarify this matter, anyway thanks for answering this problem!

It’s the first time I’m using Uboot, but for now I’m sticking to the original firmware!

@admon I shouldn’t be able to access it from Lan1 with the 2.5Gb port?

I remember that the 2.5 Gbit driver isn’t loaded in uboot so you must use a 1 Gbit port.
And please refer to the newer version of the guide Debrick via Uboot - GL.iNet Router Docs 4

yes I followed the instructions here and I said that I used port 2, from port 1 I could not access Uboot!

Thanks for the answers! :wave:
