Bouncing radios

    RT-AC88U with firmware 382.1.2.

    The radios are constantly bouncing, CPU on core 1 and core 2 alternately go to 100%. I do not see the SSID on my iPhone, iPad, etc.

    It was working fine, but I decided to try Enable Smart Connect. It was a mistake to mess with it...

    After that, no wireless connectivity.

    I noticed then when you enable smart connect, it sets both radios to the same network name. It choose the network name I was using for 5gHz... I decided to set things back the way they were - I turned off Smart Connect, and back to separate network names.

    Ever since then, bouncing radios....

    Now, I'm not absolutely certain that the radios were working before, as I was getting very poor speed tests on iPhone/iPad for the past couple days, and I am guessing now they failed back to cellular and I just wasn't paying attention.

    I am guessing that flipping the switch to turn on Smart Connect got some settings screwed up and now I have to reset some settings. Nothing looks wrong to me, though.

    Oh, I also had turned off WPS. I can't imagine that would create this problem?

    Here are some log entries:

    The radios stopped bouncing when I powered down/back up after having trouble with changing uername/password/https/port.

    What is strange is that I powered down/up several times prior and it did NOT fix the radio problem.

    I can now connect to the wifi, and it also solved my WiFi speed problem I'd been having for the past couple of days.

    I was not able to turn the radios off manually, because I did not have Telnet or SSH set-up. I've fixed that!

    Bouncing again, though this time without the 100% CPU, and with different log messages. Haven't tried another reboot yet. Lots of error messages in the log.

    Anybody understand anything in these log entries. Hopefully I've captured enough to make sense to somebody.

    Throughput is obviously horrible on WiFi (though I do get some.)

    Also, I notice I had a LOT of these earlier:

    Some kind of memory exhaustion?

    A reboot cured for now. I've set up a nightly reboot.

    It's either something with 382.1.2 or else I messed things up GOOD by trying Smart Connect.

    Alas, the nightly reboot isn't enough. Not sure if it failed since 4:00AM this morning, or if it has to be a power-down reboot (which seemed to be the case previously).

    I was asked to capture "top" - it seems unremarkable. But I will post here in case somebody notices something. It is NOT using 100% CPU, though, or anything close.

    I can only post 10,000 characters, so will just post the first part.

    I thought there was some way to filter log entries, but apparently not? It seems you can only control what is LOGGED, not what is shown?

    Anyway, some more suspicious log entries:

    After a reboot, the radios are fine.

    Not really sure I'm seeing the same problem as when it was "bouncing".

    Symptom is very poor throughput on WiFi, but throughput unaffected on wired network. By "very poor", I mean I normally get 300-350mbps down on speedtest, but once it goes wonky I might get 10-20 mbps.

    I am using Speedtest, which I know is not the best for diagnosing WiFi problems. Next time I will remember to use WiFi Sweetspots, which tests WiFi throughput to the router. (Uses iPerf? Or something else? They don't say.)

    Once again this morning I had to reboot. Same symptom - crappy/jerky WiFi performance, but find wired. But no repeat of the 100% CPU, so I guess a different issue.

    This time, nothing suspicious in the log, but really I don't know what I'd be looking for.

    I'm afraid I will either need to drop back to a previous version (on 382.1.2) or else start clean with 382.1.2 and set everything up from scratch.

    This started happening either with 382.1.2 or with my ill-fated experiment with Enable Smart Connect.

    I've disabled all QOS, Traffic Analyzer, etc. in case they might be interfering. Will see if this happens again tomorrow, if so I'll have to bite the bullet and just start over.

    It had been stable and never required reboots before the update to 382.1.2.
