Re: 1.11.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2019-April-13 21

I want to block some devices, but if I do so, save the setting and open it up again for editing, it switches back from "nothing allowed" to "everything allowed". A screenshot and a more detailed description will help us. Even with a setting to block everything but the global DNS...

In language manager, when a second language is installed, the default language (english) can be selected, but the name isn't displayed in the list.

Re: 1.11.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2019-April-13 21

Installed on my Archer C7 V2. Configured from scratch (well, mostly, copied over dhcp config and hosts), but am running into a problem with the firewall configuration. I want to block some devices, but if I do so, save the setting and open it up again for editing, it switches back from "nothing...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

I did issue the firstboot command, which didn't finish. After that, I tried mounting /dev/mtdblock3 to overlay but was lacking the necessary "-t jffs2" parameter. Adding that one, the partition is mounted but seems to have been erased as announced by jffs2reset. Okay, will try another reb...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

mount_root takes a second or two, but seems to do nothing. Yes, it just happens, but the command will be executed in the background. a) FAILSAFE MODE is very limited. b) mount_root gives you access to the "/overlay" folder (in this directory is all configuration) after entering "moun...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

O.K. step by step: 1. Turn on the router 2. when the LED is blinking, press reset = LED will blink even faster. 3. You got into "FAILSAFE MODE" and in this mode connect with ssh/telnet (you have already got there once) 4. Run the command: mount_root rm -r /overlay/upper/usr/data/* &&a...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

So to understand and summarize, do you still have a USB drive connected and use it as an extroot? And when you disconnect a USB drive, will the router normally boot up? No, no and no. The drive is currently connected to my Linux PC. It contains two partitions, a big one for Data and a small swap. I...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

Something fishy has been going on here... I've attached the external drive to my Linux PC. Trying to backup it, I got an error message. Started e2fsck, and that one reports thousands of multiply-claimed blocks. I'll have to purge the affected directories, as there's no way to know which of the files...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

Yes well that log is definitely from failsafe, but the first one (unless you cut out the failsafe text under the banner) is not. That's what I said, I was cutting too much text. I was only ever able to log in via SSH once the router was in failsafe. I don't know if it is really documented anywhere,...

Re: Semi-bricked Archer C7 V2

That doesn’t look like failsafe. It looks like a fully booted device. And you’re saying that it looks like all your settings are now gone? It’s possible you triggered a firstboit by holding the button down too long. Maybe I did, Is this documented somewhere? The only thing I read everywhere is &quo...
