I have managed to install openwrt (latest 0.6 version) on my vim2 max and was testing Ethernet connection speed.
To my surprise the speed is quite low. I get only 2-3 Mbit for download and around 1.5 Mbit for upload.
Vim2 is connected directly to my router and uses DHCP to get IP (it is on the same subnet as my PC).
My PC with Linux mint 19.3 connected to the same router gets around 110 Mbit in download and 13 Mbit in upload speed.
What am I missing? What are your results in speed test?
I was wrong, built 0.5 version and installed it to emmc and speed over Ethernet is excellent.
I do have some strange errors in kermit console while booting. Take a look here : Strange errors
My speedtest is this:
Retrieving speedtest.net server list…
Selecting best server based on ping…
Hosted by Terrakom [net + tel + tv] (Zagreb) [5.57 km]: 16.015 ms
Testing download speed…
Download: 137.54 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed…
Upload: 14.44 Mbit/s
So it seems version 0.5 works
Also on build 0.6 there is no wifi as you wrote on github page (wireless config is empty).
I hope you are chilling and enjoying your vacation
Will try to flash 19.07.0.servers version. Btw I have build myself openwrt and flashed
I don’t see any explanation what is the difference between server version and standard version of openwrt? Can you explain what is the difference?
Btw what is the signal strength on openwrt in your testing? I have connected to OpenWrt SSID and my observation is that wifi signal is quite bad but it shouldn’t be because of vim2 hardware spec ?!?!
Will report my findings tonight when I get back home.
One more question, have you heard of this ROOter firmware by http://www.ofmodemsandmen.com/?
They made ROOter firmware especially for work with 3G/LTE modems and it would be nice to have something like that for vims
I noticed that turning off wifi with wifi.off and then turning it on with wifi.on commands does nothing.
After turning wifi off I can’t turn it on, even after restarting networking with /etc/init.d/network restart?!
Only reboot helps to get back wifi on, very strange.
yes - agree !!! but all problem is only onboard wifi (i know about this problems ) - i have test day by day : vim2 and vim1 like wifi + vpn router + ethernet extension - in 24x7 mode about 2 month already and i can say ) its usable already !!! ( but need some experience level)
openwrt can provide wide ranges of task - not only as wifi router!!!
every time - my choose is openwrt - like good base for many different projects -
i think its one of the best linux distros
PS: if u need stable openwrt + Aarch64 base - u dont have big choose
