I usually don't announce the builds, but there are a few things I want to mention this time.

1. The build is based on 24500 but I added a few patches which show up in svn in later revisions. I just didn't want to sync anything from >24500 since I did all my testing with 24500 and only added fixes for things I found. This time I tested a lot more services and features.

2. No uClibc anymore, thus any app that has been compiled for uClibc won't work now. A new repo with apps compiled against musl is up and you can install them through opkg. I removed ipkg and added a script that installs opkg for you. Before it was required to have one partition mounted to /jffs and one to /opt, now /opt is enough (/jffs is still recommended as it is the default location for override configs and storage space for things like webserver etc.).
Bootstrap script will install opkg to /opt. Thus, if you already have a partition that is mounted to /opt, run the script "bootstrap".

3. No old driver build available this time, as we have added a few broadcom modules that are not available for the old drivers, e.g. emf

4. Next build will bring a surprise for you, which will probably have a few stability issues in the beginning, that's why I tried to make 24500 as good as possible.

I have installed this version, with no problems experienced so far. I previously only used OLDD versions due to reboot issues. Fingers crossed.

May I request that you compile and add stunnel to the repo? It's a small application, but very helpful for getting around DPI censors.

My 5ghz radio is active & the ssid's are seen but my clients cant seem to connect to the ssid.

2.5 & wired work just fine.

I am running my normal 2 2.4 ssid's (1 inside & 1 guest) & 2 5 ssid's (1 inside & 1 guest).

This seems to have been the fix for my 5ghz ssid clients unable to connect.
Over in the r7000 thread JamesMTL mentioned finding the eth3 for the 5ghz radio.
I added "eth3" to my bridge group & that fixed my 5ghz ssid client connection issue.
See image for what I did.
This assumes everything is already configured the way you want.

Kong, very minor but I did notice my 2.4ghz radio temp monitoring appears broke.

Just wanted to let you know.

Anyone with a Asus RT-AC68U installed this one, yet? I'm going to let someone else be the Guenna pig

Was having issues with NewD rebooting the router continually, with stability under 12 hours. As soon as I switched to OldD, I haven't had any issues.

r7000 an additional issue, when changing Wifi settings and hitting apply settings, browser page goes blank (does not come back to settings page) and 5ghz signal goes dead (not seen on wifi analyzer or clients), and does not come back until reboot.

Hi,Kong, can we have asterisk11 and transmission stuff under your bcm53xx-musl repo?

Wireless settings lists Explicit Beamforming twice for each interface and does not list implicit at all.

Thanks for spotting. Implicit Beamforming is there, but the same translation text is shown.

This assumes everything is already configured the way you want.


eth3???

There is no eth3 on the R7000.

Confirmed, eth3 is there and I know the reason .... aaaarrghh BrainSlayer.

This issue only exists on the R7000, as it has two ports, one has to be disabled and BS removed that line, but never added it for the R7000 again.

Builds are updated, also fixed the Implicit Beamforming translation

No that's not a bug in the new code, this also happened a few times with the old code, it is a broadcom bug. If you reboot or wait a bit it is probably gone:-)
