Hi everyone

Listed below is some known defects with respect to D-Link DIR-860L A1.
Write in this thread every time you have either tested a new beta build of DD-WRT and mention whether some of the listed defects below are corrected or not.
Also if you have found new defects please write and I will update this post so we have an up-to-date list. Be sure to post the specific build that you are using so your post will make sense and be useful.

Hopefully someone will pick up this list and put the defects on their way to get fixed since it is currently impossible to register at http://svn.dd-wrt.com/register (you are likely going to get a trac/captcha error so that you are not able to e.g. post defects/bugs.)

Should someone know how to create a trac account on http://svn.dd-wrt.com/ I would also like to hear more about that!


*UPDATE 3*
WAN and Power LEDs as well as the USB port now works!
Build: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2015/07-06-2015-r27490/dlink-dir860l-a1/
This means 1. and 3. have been fixed!


*UPDATE 2*
1. and 3. BrainSlayer has applied this patch http://svn.dd-wrt.com/changeset/27480 that should fix the issues concerning the USB port as well as the Power and WAN LEDs of DIR-860L A1. The fix is available in the next upcoming beta. Stay tuned...

2. BrainSlayer has confirmed that DIR-860L A1 / BCM47081A0 is single core:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=973455#973455


*UPDATE*
Fix just waiting to be patched into DD-WRT
To fix the known defects about missing LED and USB functionality concerning points 1 and 3 below the following will most likely fix it:
Code:
case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR860:
        power_gpio = 0x101;         // power led green
        diag_gpio = 0x100;          // power led orange
        diag_gpio_disabled = 0x101; // power led green
        connected_gpio = 0x104;     // wan led green
        disconnected_gpio = 0x103;  // wan led orange
        usb_power = 0x00a;          // usb power
        break;

, in src/router/libutils/utils.c in the led_control function above line 5980:
http://svn.dd-wrt.com/browser/src/router/libutils/utils.c#L5980
Code:
5980           case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR868:
5981           case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR868C:

KrypteX has said to make a ticket on http://svn.dd-wrt.com so it hopefully and eventually will get fixed.

Concerning point 2 maybe BrainSlayer can confirm if the CPU of DIR-860L A1 is only single core or not.

Known defects

1) LEDs
Power LED:
Both orange LED and green LED are on after boot making it hard to see the green LED as well as to interpret the state.

WAN/Internet LED:
Both orange and green LEDs are off all the time so it is not possible to see if the Internet connection (or connection to the next gateway) is established.

It has not worked on any of the dd-wrt builds I have tried to date (last time it was build 27396 from 06/20/2015 https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=971434 )
, but I have found the GPIOs to switch on and off the LEDs!

For the DIR-860L A1:
gpio disable => LED is on
gpio enable => LED is off

Power LED:
Orange gpio: 0
Green gpio: 1

WAN/Internet LED:
Orange gpio: 3
Green gpio: 4


2) Only 1 CPU core is running although 2 are found

There is a lot of confusion whether the CPU of the DIR-860L A1 is dual core or not:
https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=972434#972434
It seems it is only single core then again there is a little doubt.

It all started with the dd-wrt user Edr created this post https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=283786
where it is described only one of the two cpu cores are running.
So I decided to check that (last time it was build 27396 from 06/20/2015 https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=971434 ).

The dd-wrt Status - Router page shows under section "CPU": CPU Cores 1

From dmesg I have copy pasted this:
Mount-cache hash table entries: 512
CPU: Testing write buffer coherency: ok
CPU0: thread -1, cpu 0, socket 0, mpidr 80000000
Calibrating local timer... 399.73MHz.
2 cores has been found
Setting up static identity map for 0xc00126c0 - 0xc00126f4
L310 cache controller enabled
l2x0: 16 ways, CACHE_ID 0x410000c8, AUX_CTRL 0x7a530000, Cache size: 262144 B
CPU1: failed to boot: -38
Brought up 1 CPUs
SMP: Total of 1 processors activated (1594.16 BogoMIPS).

It would be nice to have both of the 2 cores running as it has been seen on other dd-wrt routers.

3) USB does not work.
Seems power is off to the usb port.

Not working properly:

Only one core of the dual core CPU is running.
Leds-Both Orange and Green on at the same time.
USB - not working

Working:
OpenVpn - (using a bash! script) didn't test with gui interface yet.
Wireless 2.4 working.
Wireless 5Ghz working.

Here is my complete dmesg:

Hi Edr

Thanks for the report!
When I get your answer to the following questions I will add your observations for DD-WRT build 27435 to the list above:

Edr wrote:
Not working properly:
Only one core of the dual core CPU is running.
Leds-Both Orange and Green on at the same time.

1. So the Power LEDs were lighting up in both orange and green at the same time, right?

2. What about the WAN/Internet LEDs. Were the orange and green LEDs off at all time?

Edr wrote:

3. I assume you have activated USB from within the GUI of DD-WRT, right?

4. What did not work, both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 or only USB 3.0?

5. What sort of USB devices did you test?

is the DIR-860L A1 Broadcom BCM47081@800
better than the B1 Mediatek MT7621AT@880?

I know that the B1 is the first to get ddwrt support(and clocked at higher speed), but I thought Broadcom had better support?

back to the topic, I searched everywhere and I can't seemed to find the official data for this BCM47081. Some place even assuming it to be the single core version of BCM4708. It will be nice if we could find out that and prove it to be ddwrt problem

You can't really say which is better, but I'd go with the Broadcom model, because Mediatek/Ralink still can't Autoselect the Host AP's channel in Repeater mode: http://svn.dd-wrt.com/ticket/3809
That's right there a deal breaker for me.

KrypteX

Broadcom BCM47081A0 is a dual core 800mhz processor.

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/D-Link_DIR-860L_rev_A1

I wonder if it is a DD-WRT issue or a D-Link issue. Does anyone know if two cores are running in the stock firmware ?

Maybe its a problem similar to this one that was going on with Netgear: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=900268

If this is the case, the router should not be advertised as a dual core unless it it running both cores.

Regarding the LEDs I guess we need to add this as a patch to utils.c in src/router/libutils/
in the led_control function to get working LEDs:

Code:
case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR860:
        power_gpio = 0x101;         // power led green
        diag_gpio = 0x100;          // power led orange
        diag_gpio_disabled = 0x101; // power led green
        connected_gpio = 0x104;     // wan led green
        disconnected_gpio = 0x103;  // wan led orange
        break;


, however I have no cross compile environment set up to test it, but maybe some kind soul would add it as a feature request to http://svn.dd-wrt.com/ , because it is my best judgement that it should work.

Of course there is no guarantee that it works, but it is the right place to add and it is the GPIOs to use and they are negated as needed (0x1##) meaning disable to switch on the LEDs and vice versa.

Also I do not know if the problem Edr mentions above about USB is because usb_power and/or usb_power1 are not set. (Edr has not yet answered and confirmed with regards to my questions above.) Maybe someone knows that?
Although there are no LEDs for USB on DIR860L it may be the case that usb_power and/or usb_power1 control USB power as hinted in the led_control function since it is specified for
"case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR868:" as "usb_power = 0x00a;"
(D-Link DIR-868L does also not have USB LEDs - that is why!)

Concerning the dual core cpu problem. Could it e.g. be that the boot loader (or the kernel) does not initialize the CPU correctly?
(Totally unrelated, but just an example about a failed initialization of an arm CPU http://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg351208.html - I know nothing about how to initialize arm CPUs. Smile )

Happy hacker greetings go to:

The chip itself is dual core and capable of running two radios. Whether or not Dlink chose to implement both cores is another story.

1) Dual core!

According to the Swedish D-Link DIR-860L spec page on the D-Link site it is indeed dual core!
http://www.dlink.com/se/sv/home-solutions/connect_us/routers/dir-860l-wireless-ac1200-dual-band-gigabit-router#
, and click the 'Specifications' tab then it can be seen:
...
4 x Gigabit LAN-portar, 1 x Gigabit WAN-port
Processor 1 GHz ARM® Cortex™-A9 dual-core
128MB DDR2 arbetsminne
128MB NAND Flashminne
1 x USB 3.0 port
...

2) USB
Edr concerning USB I guess one can try to call:
gpio disable #
and maybe gpio enable #
where # is some of the other gpio numbers and then try to call lsusb or see if something happens when calling dmesg etc.

WARNING
The only problem is that you might brick your router like I just did Smile
It was about when I wrote:
gpio disable 10 or gpio disable 11 (likely 11)
, then the router started to flash the power LED (The yellow LED switched on and off and the green lighted constantly)
So I guess I have to unbrick it this way: http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=44909.0

However you might be right that it is only single core according to:

because RT-N18U uses BCM47081(A0)
And using google translate of

On the same page just above this text the image shows that BCM47081 might be the same as BCM47081A0 depending on how many letters that is read.

I guess the only thing left is to get USB fixed then. I have yet to de-brick my router so maybe someone else can figure out how to get USB working, because I'll be busy this weekend.

You donated a DIR-860L A1 to BrainSlayer Smile No better support than doing that....hopely we could get a more stable version than the current beta in the future.

regarding the core, I wonder if there is any hardware hacker who will bother to figure out what really happened.

Hi people

I managed to unbrick the router easily.
I just had to do a normal reset of the router and that was enough to bring it back to a normal unconfigured dd-wrt state. Smile

But the best part!
I managed to get my USB port online (with power) and access to the content of an old USB stick!

The trick was to call:
gpio enable 10
(the same as 0x00a in hex - Just as for the DIR-868L A1)

Afterwards /tmp/mnt/sda was mounted with the content of my old USB 2 stick (fat32 formatted).

To unmount I pressed the WPS button (I have chosen so from the GUI: Services - USB - Use SES Button to remove drives)
Afterwards the stick was unmounted!

This all concludes that to get both LEDs and USB to work we need BrainSlayer or someone with commit access to add this (if they agree Smile )

Code:
case ROUTER_DLINK_DIR860:
        power_gpio = 0x101;         // power led green
        diag_gpio = 0x100;          // power led orange
        diag_gpio_disabled = 0x101; // power led green
        connected_gpio = 0x104;     // wan led green
        disconnected_gpio = 0x103;  // wan led orange
        usb_power = 0x00a;          // usb power
        break;


Maybe KrypteX can help us to get a bug report on svn.dd-wrt.com?
Smile Thanks in advance!
