#39 closed defect (invalid)

lan not recognized on RouterStation

Reported by: doddel Owned by: amain
Priority: major Milestone: milestone:
Component: debian/rootfs Version: 2.0
Severity: Keywords:


Have successfully compiled debwrt on basis of Trunk OpenWrt (29/11/2010) after having defined RouterStation as the platform through menuconfig. It boots but with two flaws:

  1. only wan (the PoE interface) is brought up as eth0; what normally in OpenWrt is eth1, the two lan interfaces, is not recognized. dmesg shows both eth0 and eth1 present but Debian networking does not act on it.
  2. when connecting a serial console it shows the boot process but the serial interface hangs at the moment it asks to log in. It will not react to any key presses.

  • Resolution set to invalid

Please check in plain OpenWrt first. Then check how OpenWrt is initializing the switch and configures the ethernet. Try backfire and trunk. The RS I have here at home is working just fine with DebWrt. Though with a relatively old OpenWrt kernel ( 100+ days old ). Let me know by e-mail if you got it fixed. I will make a wiki page for it. Closing as invalid for now.

Tnx; revisited the issue today and found the problem after digging into the Debian documenttion. It is not in OpenWrt but in Debian.
In Debian the interface has to be made known through etc/network/interfaces which is a symbolic link to one of a number of predefined configurations. But they do not fit the RouterStation board. Assuming that the RS does not yet carry a wireless miniPCI board, the eth1 interface has to be made known in etc/network/interfaces.firstboot (to which the symlink refers) as an extra section e.g.
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static


How to handle the wireless depends on the type of board and drivers as their interface designation differs (wlanX , athX, wlX etc.)

This eth1 addition will bring up the lan (on the RS lan = eth1, and wan = eth0 = PoE interface)

Some other things that need looking into: dnsmasq does not get started, default gateway routing does not get set.
