Gluon 2022.1.3


  • Ipq40xx Wave2 devices temporarily use non-ct firmware again to work around 802.11s unicast package loss in ath10k-ct (#2692)

  • Modify kernel builds slightly to work around a boot hang on various devices based on the QCA9563 SoC - especially the Unifi AC-* devices (#2784)

  • Work around an issue with wifi setup timing by waiting a bit while device initialisation is ongoing (#2779)

Known issues

  • Upgrading EdgeRouter-X from versions before v2020.1.x may lead to a soft-bricked state due to bad blocks on the NAND flash which the NAND driver before this release does not handle well. (#1937)

  • The integration of the BATMAN_V routing algorithm is incomplete.

    • Mesh neighbors don’t appear on the status page. (#1726) Many tools have the BATMAN_IV metric hardcoded, these need to be updated to account for the new throughput metric.

    • Throughput values are not correctly acquired for different interface types. (#1728) This affects virtual interface types like bridges and VXLAN.

  • Default TX power on many Ubiquiti devices is too high, correct offsets are unknown (#94)

    Reducing the TX power in the Advanced Settings is recommended.

  • In configurations without VXLAN, the MAC address of the WAN interface is modified even when Mesh-on-WAN is disabled (#496)

    This may lead to issues in environments where a fixed MAC address is expected (like VMware when promiscuous mode is disallowed).
