Gluon 2018.2.3

Added hardware support


  • TP-Link

    • CPE210 v3


  • Aerohive

    • HiveAP 121


  • Aerohive

    • HiveAP 330


  • TP-Link

    • TL-MR3420 v5 1


Device or target does not support AP+IBSS mode: This device or target will not be built when GLUON_WLAN_MESH is set to ibss.


  • Fixes passwordless SSH access when gluon-authorized-keys was used without gluon-setup-mode. (#1777)

  • Fixes ingress traffic shaping. A necessary kernel config value was not set. (#1790)

  • Fixes the generation of the bootloader image for the AVM FRITZ!Box 4040. (#1766)

  • Fixes the IBSS mesh on the GL.iNet AR750. The wrong driver/firmware package was previously selected. (#1792)

  • Fixes the primary mac selection on the TP-Link Archer C25 v1. (#1771)

Other changes

  • Linux kernel has been updated to either

    • 4.9.188 (ar71xx, brcm2708, mpc85xx) or

    • 4.14.137 (ipq40xx, ipq806x, mvebu, ramips, sunxi, x86).

Known issues

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Inconsistent respondd API (#522)

    The current API is inconsistent and will be replaced eventually. The old API will still be supported for a while.

  • Frequent reboots due to out-of-memory or high load due to memory pressure on weak hardware especially in larger meshes (#1243)

    Optimizations in Gluon 2018.1 have significantly improved memory usage. There are still known bugs leading to unreasonably high load that we hope to solve in future releases.
