Hey Kamoj,

I had a question for you, but first my specs:
R7800, FW:V1.0.2.81.1SF (Voxel). Kamoj Add-on: 5.00.

I have my router set up behind a modem, connected to the WAN port on the modem. The router handles all the routing for part of my network, and passes the internet connection through to the modem.

However, every so often (rather regularly, perhaps every 16 hours or so), the R7800 becomes invisible to my network and everything is still passed through, but I can no longer connect to the router, or anything connected to the router. All traffic routing APPEARS to be then handled by the modem instead of the router. When this occurs, the adblocking function stops working, I can't connect to the router through the web interface, and I can't access the external hard drive on the network anymore.

I don't know enough about networking to know why this is happening. I'm assuming it's a bug in the firmware, but I don't know if it's in your addon firmware, or in Voxel's base firmware. Unfortunately, I can't check if it's Voxel's firmware, because you don't support any newer versions of his firmware, and I consider your addon to be essential.

Have you any idea what might be causing this issue? When it occurs, I reboot the router (manually) and it functions normally again. I tried setting a script on the router that reboots it every day, but I don't think the script is running properly. The router doesn't seem to be rebooting itself.

Thanks.
 
I can't explain your issue at all, and doubt the add-on has anything to do with it.
What are the temperatures in the router?

The new add-on has quite a number of supervision, logging and restarting functions that might help.
You can join the beta testing, or wait some more time for the new add-on to be public.

Hi Kamoj,

Danlat hooked me up with the beta version, so I'm all updated. You've added a lot of new features. I'm still testing, but the new firmware seems to be faster than the old firmware. Will have to post back later with long-term results. Temps seem slightly high - 147° (~64 C?) while tooling around with settings in the Kamoj menu. Router is on a wood shelf in an airconditioned room.

I will add one thing though: I do wish there was an easy way to add different adblock lists and have them update automatically. I use a couple of the presets and then manually add the EasyList to the Blacklist filter. Seems to work good, but requires manual updates.

Love your work. Your modded firmware is a huge step up from the Linux derivative I was using before. So many options, and easy to use.
 
Hi Kamoj,

Is there a way to let the VPN Bypass do the opposite.
Only let certain devices use the VPN?

I know there is, but it is not exposed via GUI.
in theory:
Code:
nvram set kamoj_reverse_bypass_vpn=1
nvram set kamoj_ips_to_vpn="192.168.1.10 192.168.1.99"
nvram commit
addon_bypassvpnip.sh force

These switches only reverse the bypass for br0

so you might also want to enable the bypass for tun0 (if you have mobile devices that connect to your router with OpenVPN)
Code:
nvram set kamoj_interfaces_to_bypass_vpn=tun0
nvram commit
addon_bypassvpnip.sh force

and you might want to enable bypass for the router, via GUI option "Router it-self bypass VPN" or via
Code:
nvram set kamoj_router_bypass_vpn=1
nvram commit
addon_bypassvpnip.sh force
 
I think all versions of Kamoj add-on were beta.
But it was added a year ago or so:
 
Changes in kamoj-addon beta version 2022-09-10 5.5b27
---------------------------------------------------------------
- Wireguard client: Improved logging of used configuration file.
- Wireguard client + OpenVPN client: Changed lead text (@jberry):
Synchronize addon created configurations with USB-device
- Help & Support: Added links to "Netgear GPL Code", "Netgear Community" and "SNB Forums"
- Configurable wait for WAN connection at boot before starting addons.sh (DNS / VPN a.o.)
Supervision: BOOT SETTINGS: Max wait time for Internet: Addon start/Router boot
- Configurable wait for WAN connection at boot before starting adguard (@jberry)
Supervision: BOOT SETTINGS: Max wait time for Internet: AdGuard Home
(This time will start after the timer above has elapse, i.e. be additional.)

- Minor editorials and refactoring
 
First of all, thanks as always to kamoj! New update is installed and working without issue! There is a mistake in the link though. It contains an extra "-kamoj" in the link/name. Once removed the link works fine.
Thanks so much for your continued support @kamoj and @Voxel

Very sorry for that silly mistake.
I'm glad we have such a skilled and helpful community!
Thank you!
