Posted: Fri May 01, 2020 10:07 Post subject: Devices on the same network don't talk to eachother
I have the attached home network arrangement (please notice that everything worked fine for years with a FritzBox 7560 - but it doesn't support OpenVPN, reason why I switched to DD-WRT).
DD-WRT v3.0-r42954 std (04/20/20 Linux 4.4.219 #1344 SMP Mon Apr 20 07:57:57 +04 2020 armv7l on a Netwgear R7000P.
1. Can't browse the network and see the samba shares (tried both from Windows10Pro and XUbuntu - Gigolo can see the shares when I input manually the NAS IP, but authentication fails)
EDIT (05/03/20): On Windows10Pro I can only see the shares by imputing manually the path (\\NAS_IP\sharename\), I can then access the shares with no authentication, but authentication fails on the shares with specific permissions - SAMBA authentication goes on ports 137, 138 and 139, but why is there a block on these ports on local VLAN?
2. The RPi4 is connected using the 2.4GHz wifi network (the 5GHz doesn't show up in the available network list) and cannot see nor connect to the NAS (same as before)
3. The iPhone sees both the 2.4Ghz and the 5GHz wifi, connects to both, but connection to the RPi4 using Kodi Remote is very unstable.
EDIT (05/03/20): I was told to disable "noise resistance" under the wifi advanced settings, because it doesn't play well with the iPhones, but can't find it anywhere in r42954, has is been moved somewhere else or replaced by some other options?
4. Internet performances are extremely low. The ISP modem/router provides about 30Mbs and below the DD-WRT R7000P I barely reach 1Mbs!
There seems to be something that cuts off some ports, can't understand what.
Anyone had similar issues?
Thanks in advance for any help.
