This used to be a very busy thread and now it's *almost* dead.
I like OpenWRT a lot now and a very big thank you to @Kong for introducing it to me. I did not have any hiccups since I flashed it about 2 weeks back.
Needs a little bit googling to get used to the interface and now I am comfy. I even tried the backup/restore and it's working like a charm. _________________ Netgear R7800 - KONG 19 2019-Q2 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (git-19.190.55584-ab90938)
I enabled Adblock and few Blacklist sources and turned on logging as well. But, I don't see anything in the logs and not sure whether the adblock is working as I see that the ads are still coming thru'.
Any ideas whether I need to enable or configure more?
Flashed it and looks solid as well. Thank you @Kong for another awesome build.
Is there a way to identify what build is in the router? I see only this label for both 07/29 and 08/17 build - KONG 19 2019-Q2 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (git-19.190.55584-ab90938).
EDIT: I see that the kernel is updated to 4.14.138. That's probably one indicator of what build is in the router but love to see a build number to easily identify it. Not a big deal but just curious... _________________ Netgear R7800 - KONG 19 2019-Q2 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (git-19.190.55584-ab90938)
There is a new version for adblock (3.8.0) which you can install it through opkg (you will have to download two ipks from openwrt snapshot packages) and it works much better.
It refreshes and updates the blacklists quickly as the adblock developer has made couple of tweaks (DNS File Reset & 'null' blocking variant in dnsmasq) to make it faster. _________________ Netgear R7800 - KONG 19 2019-Q2 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (git-19.190.55584-ab90938)

EA8500 on 17 Aug version.
Just changed network provider. Connecting mode changed from DHCP to PPPOE. I can get internet by using laptop but can't make EA8500 run. When EA8500 was in PPPOE, it could not get correct WAN MAC which was shown as 00:00:00:00:00:00.

Wash your hands and DONT TOUCH YOUR FACE!!!
Running this build on R7800, doing wireless client (STA) to an LTE hotspot on 2.4ghz and it is smoking the speed I used to get out of recent BS and Kong builds on my older R7000.
I wouldn't expect much of a speed difference with LTE, but the latency is especially lower.
Does your changes have a github anywhere?
This Novatel 7730L used to use USB RNDIS on the first firmware shipped by Verizon in the USA but now seems to use CDC now. That's good overall but everyone, including me, sees it just cycle between connect and disconnect on the USB hub. Not sure if there is a special setting or usb modeset to kick start it correctly.
Thanks for this build Kong, I'm really enjoying it.
I just added the modules for rndis and ipeth, next build will have the packages for it in the opkg repo, maybe that helps.
Hi, KONG. Thanks for your great jobs. My EA8500 is at "KONG 19 2019-Q2 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch (f138fc93)". Works fantastic.
I have a 320G ESATA disk. This disk was tested on windows10 using FAT32, got read=85M/s write=78M/s.
Attached it to EA8500, only got 33M/s when reading from samba by wire network. I use dd to test the io speed. The file size is 1024M .
time dd if=./largefile of=/dev/null bs=4k
262144+0 records in
262144+0 records out
real 0m 14.73s
user 0m 0.34s
sys 0m 3.69s
Does that mean Samba is the key of low speed?
New samba4 is the problem, I ran a test with both samba4 and proftpd on the same router. Samba4 gave me around 30MB/s, but with ftp to the same folder I got 85MB/s. It is pretty strange as cpu is not fully maxed out, when using samba, that's why I first thought it is a IO problem until I tried ftp.
When I feel like it I'll profile it, must be some waiting/timeout etc. issue.
Could you please add NFS server to packages? NFS generally got better performance than SAMBA.
Thanks a lot for your fabulous work on the firmware.
