New GL.Inet user here but not new to OpenWrt and never seen this on vanilla OpenWrt nor on the Turris flavor of OpenWrt but my GL-AXT1800 is constantly pinging Google which I really want to have disabled.
I’ve tried disabling mwan3 but it keeps pinging, even completely removing mwan3 doesn’t stop it from pinging 126.96.36.199. Completely removing mwan3 does break the admin panel though, disabling it only gives me a message that the internet can’t be reached but could live with that if the massive amounts of icmp packages towards Google would stop.
Every topic I’ve seen about this issue advises to remove mwan3, unfortunately this doesn’t seem to work on the GL-AXT1800/Version: 4.0.3
Another issue I have is that the plugins don’t work like discussed here:
I can view the plugins when disabling mwan3, they don’t update but at least it shows a list with plugins.
Thank you for your help Yuxin, I’ve updated to 4.1 and have indeed the option to disable it in the admin panel, but disabling it there gives the same result as previously disabling mwan3 through Luci.
It keeps pinging 188.8.131.52, changing the IP however works to stop it from pinging the google dns servers, so I’ve changed the IP for now and changed the track interval to 30min.
Disabling completely doesn’t seem to work though, then it reverts back to the default behavior of pinging every 5 seconds to 184.108.40.206
