MT1300 Beryl wifi timeout every 45 secs

I’m using MT1300 as a travel router. I am able to use it as a router when connected to hotel LAN. However every 45 seconds or so, there’d be a blip in ping time. If I ping the router’s IP address, I’d see a timeout repeating every 45 seconds.

Has anyone encountered this issue and find a fix? my MT1300 is now on firmware 3.203 (2021-08-09 16:28:30)

You connect the Ethernet cable to the WAN port of MT1300, right?

Does the hotel has a captive portal?

There is a timeout every 45 seconds but it will be normal thereafter?

If this happens you can ssh to the router and use “logread” to get the log?

yes directly connected using ethernet cable to the hotel ethernet using WAN port.
There’s no captive portal on the WAN interface and the timeout happens every 45 seconds continuously, it’s evident when I ping the router on my mac (and my ipad and iphone) from wifi, timeout every 45 seconds or so.

ssh into the router running logread -f shows nothing.

BTW, using the OOPS firmware that you posted seems to remediate the issue, I suspect it may be a WIFI driver issue in the current stable firmware?

Thanks for the info. This is very useful.

I get the same issue over wifi.
I’ve just updated to the latest beta firmware 3.2.12 (released 1 march 2022) and I get exactly the same issues.
No difference for 2.4 or 5hz.
Any other suggestions? It makes video calls awful.

I wonder if you could describe your issue.

The “exact” issue was fixed in 3.211 firmware and later.

I did ping today and I didn’t see any 45 seconds lag.

I am using firmware 3.212 beta

I had this problem with the previous firmware as well and was hoping the new firmware resolve it

Doesnt matter what sort of device I connect with. An example below. Also doesn’t matter which wifi frequency.

64 bytes from icmp_seq=26 ttl=64 time=2.987 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=27 ttl=64 time=1.705 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=28 ttl=64 time=50.693 ms
Request timeout for icmp_seq 29
Request timeout for icmp_seq 30
Request timeout for icmp_seq 31
Request timeout for icmp_seq 32
64 bytes from icmp_seq=33 ttl=64 time=2.066 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=34 ttl=64 time=2.840 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=35 ttl=64 time=2.785 ms

Is there any other way to get a more detailed diagnostic to share?

One other user with the same problem but only seems to be there when the WAN is used ML-MT1300 (Beryl) Wifi stability is terrible with tons of 1-2s dropouts

If you don’t mind, can you reset the firmware and try again?

Maybe just wifi config was messed up.

I have just found the same as the other poster on the other thread suggested

If I set the router up to connect as a wifi repeater and then I connect via wifi from my devices then there is no dropouts in connection! Only when using wired connection from router to get internet access is there dropouts!

I re-installed the firmware 3.212 beta and that didn’t resolve it.

Dropouts happen when I’m connected to internet using the wired connection but not when using wifi as repeater

As this thread was opened by other user and his problem has been solved. Let’s just clost this thread and discuss in ML-MT1300 (Beryl) Wifi stability is terrible with tons of 1-2s dropouts - #9 by glinetlvr
