I have problems with my GL-AXT1800 (Slate AX) with Firmware 4.2.3 (release5) and Kernel 4.4.60.
The router is connected via Ethernet to a shared LAN (RFC1918 on WAN), over which I have no control.
So far no problems, if I connect my notebook via Ethernet (USB-C Adpather) to the LAN of my AXT1800.
When I turn on Wi-Fi and my notebook connects to the Wi-Fi, the router seems to be rebooting. If I use only the Wi-Fi (no simultaneous Ethernet), then I see the same behaviour. The Wi-Fi connects, disconnects, reconnects at some point (minutes later) and so on. The router is not usable.
I can’t really see the problem in the logs. It seems like the WAN interface will go down, but it doesn’t until I turn on WiFi:
user.notice firewall: Reloading firewall due to ifup of wan (eth0)
So I think the problem is probably not the WAN interfaces but something else? Maybe configuration? The uptime is also reset, it really looks like turning on the WiFi would trigger a reboot.
Can anyone help? Can I provide some additional useful logs?
Now I feel stupid. I think I’ve found the problem. The Slate AX was attached to a power adapter from a FireTV stick that was plugged in here in the apartment. It’s only 5W. Now I’ve use a 10W power adapter, and I’ve been able to turn the Wi-Fi on and off several times.
With Wi-Fi on, I guess the load was too heavy. That led to these strange random behaviors. I’m going to test this further tomorrow.
