The OpenWrt community is proud to announce the fifth release candidate of the upcoming OpenWrt 22.03 stable version series. It incorporates over 3500 commits since branching the previous OpenWrt 21.02 release and has been under development for about one year.
This is just a release candidate and not the final release yet.
firewall4 now supports include files within existing chains.
See @jow’s comment on Github for the basic syntax:
option type nftables
option path /etc/whatever.nft # avoid /etc/nftables.d/*.nft here since that is still included by default in the old fixed position
# may also be ruleset-prepend (before table) ruleset-append (after table),
# table-prepend (before fist chain in table), table-append (after last chain in table),
# chain-prepend (at top of chain), chain-append (at bottom of chain)
option position table-prepend
# name of chain to prepend/append, only meaningful in conjunction with
# position chain-prepend or chain-append
#option chain 'input_wan'
Reporting an issue too with my tl-wr902ac system. This may be the same issue as huskyhunter reported just above, as I understand both platforms use similar chipsets and radios.
In my setup, the tl-wr902ac has a wifi client connecting over 5GHz to my AP, and a wifi AP on the 2.4 GHz band. The wifi client over 5GHz doesn't work with 22.03.0-rc5, while it was fine with 22.03.0-rc4. The 2.4 GHz wifi AP works fine in either case.
I also updated my main AP (r7800) and my router (wrt1200ac) to rc5, no issues were encountered on these platforms.
I upgraded my dumb AP - Wrt1900ACS from 21.02.3 to 22.03 RC5 with keeping settings. Both my phones showed Wrong Password and were not able to connect to WIFI. I had to revert back to 21.02.3 and it worked like a charm. I tested 22.03 RC1,3,4,and 5 and the wrong wifi password issue persisted.
No Idea what should be done? Is this a known issue with 22.03? upgrade without keeping setting? Thanks!
After a glorious 240 day uptime on my WRT32X decided to take the plunge to rc5. Did a clean install on the second partition. Added some typical packages, SQM cake running 500/35 Mbits cable speedtest with A+ bufferbloat/ A+ quality results, USB3.0 storage 100 MB/s read-write via Samba, adblock, irqbalance, advanced reboot, etc. nftables/fw4 appears to be seamless, no issues noticed. All good so far, thanks devs.
Fresh install. I patted this RC for 10 hours to learn the newishness of the GUI and liked several item.
Having such a limited CPU it handicapped WireGuard's throughput to 60% of achievable from release I moved from. I've parked my system back to release for now.
Great Job on the RC, I'm sure it's a step up for most users, including me.
No future for OpenWrt 19.07, so I'm going to continue exploring the rc5.
System Board and Opkg Installed
Model MikroTik RouterBOARD 951Ui-2nD (hAP)
Architecture Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533 ver 2 rev 0
Target Platform ath79/mikrotik
Firmware Version OpenWrt 22.03.0-rc5 r19523-bfd070e7fa / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-22.167.28394-8a4486a
Kernel Version 5.10.127
I don't do too much with the system, so I normally have about half of the memory free on it. I did not check the free amount under rc5 but I also didn't see anything about being short on memory in the logs.
I have a linksys EA8500 and when installing the ath10k smallbuffers driver it gave me an instability problem, with the ath10k drivers no CT is working normally, I only have qosify and htop for the moment.
