Bekijk de volledige versie : FYI: PPPoE "instability" info from other forum

I happened to run into a thread on the OpenWRT forums (a Linksys WRT54 custom firmware) that might provide a solution for some stability problems a few of you may be encountering:

"PPPoE dropouts/bad performance under high load" (by below0)


It might be worth-while to add the suggested work-around to Oleg's custom firmware and expose a checkbox in the HTML configuration pages?

For the record, I myself had stability problems in the past, but *those*, I believe, were caused by ipfilter logging being turned on. I therefore never found the need to make use of below0's work-around.

My router with (yes, I know that -3 is available) has been up now with only WAN+LAN active for some time

~ # uptime
12:17pm up 37 days, 18:16, load average: 0.05, 0.02, 0.00

and I am quite happy indeed.

Interesting findings. QoS features are still in todo list...
On the other if you check forum archives (searching for promisc) you will notice, that there is also other reasons for that problem including guys, who does not use PPPoE.
