06:00 daily reboot. Some DHCP clients not getting static loans. 1.23 worked fine. 1.25 is broken.

    I waited for a while to approach this at all. I'd read that 1.25 had some sort of issue on the WAN side but not on the LAN side. Anyway, like I said in my subject line ... the 1.25 appears to be broken.

    I drug out a new GL and flashed it with 1.25, and put my statics in and scheduled my overnight reboot ...... some of my clients drew loans, some did not. No cigar.

    Oh, dynamic loans ... nope, nope, nope. Maybe in a virtual machine with the host machine's network disconnected.

    And so, my sordid tale has to end here. I thought I'd just throw that out there. I can't check back often at all .. sort-of throw my line in the pond and check for fish tonight sometime :thumbup:

    Oh, I have dropped back to 1.23 and everything is perfect ... there were a few nice things I did like in 1.25 though. :smile:

    Any ideas folks?

    How about pasting some lines from the log?

    Hey. Next time be careful and wait for others to upgrade and give feedback on the release. 1.25 is NOT a major release, and I don't understand why some people rush into testing then complain about stability or speed. :thumbup:

    I thought 1.25 was a major release? What did you mean by that? Just curious. I have only had 1 small issue with it. But, it seems like if you want stability. 1.23 is the way to go. Even though I am not having problems with it and ran into only 1 minor problem. I am seriously thinking about rolling back to 1.23 Reading to many complaints with this 1.25 version.

    Strange the "unstable" busybox 1.14.0 provides the WAN side udhcpc service, but the well used dnsmasq provides the LAN dhcp. Common feature may be packet filtering in the kernel?

    Stable or not, but it was still an update (dnsmasq 2.46 in 1.23 to 2.47 in 1.25), and new version may have new bugs... In fact, dnsmasq 2.48 has just been released with some fixes (not sure if they are related to any of the problems discussed or not): http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/CHANGELOG.

    Yes, clearly dnsmasq also unstable - already up to 2.49!

    Strangely, it all seems OK on my 54GL... But then again, i only use it for basic PPPoE translation and net serving via cable and wireless to some 5 PCs. I also use DMZ and port forwarding, which work just fine.

    To everyone who kindly replied to my query...

    :arrow: Elbart:

    Pasting lines from my log? Now that's a great idea, I should have thought of that ... thanks. I'll try to log an overnight cycle and see if anything is useful in there I can use.

    :arrow: A*man: I'll make this succinct:

    1. I'm a newbie. I joined and posted June 10.
    2. I completely made a fool of myself with a vague post with a crude attempt
    at humor. Sincerely, there was nothing disingenious in my post.
    2. I have a production 1.23 GL. I have a second GL I tested 1.23 and 1.25 with.
    3. I wasn't complaining about stability or speed. I was just sharing
    an experience with 1.25 and hoping to hear others ... or not, as the case be.
    3. I thought the very purpose of forums was to share experiences, ideas,
    problems, and maybe even solve a few problems.
    4. I will be most careful. How long do I wait? Where is the place I
    need to read feedback? Who are the other authors I need to read?

    :arrow: FattysGoneWild:

    Like yourself 1.23 is a rock, for sure. I played with 1.25 and decided it wasn't ready for prime time for me. Yea, I'll wait for a fixed version ... sounds like you may be too.

    :arrow: mstombs:

    uh oh, "I'm deep now" ... I'll have to go read a LOT. .... and perhaps sticking around these forums might help too.

    :arrow: teddy_bear:

    my, oh, my. mstombs and you make me feel like I'm listening to my first math teacher. I still have trouble with 2+2 ... 2 (*also*) <<=== told you, vague

    :arrow: TVTV:

    Thank you for sharing your positive experience. You have explained what you use and it serves you well. This positive experience is just as worthwhile as a nightmare, problem ridden, experience someone else may be having. It's all good.


    :arrow: Editorial:

    I truely have enjoyed my experience here. And, yes, even with A*man <smile>. Although, my lesson learned was to give as good as you get, or try. I'm used to paying for that level of instruction.

    I think I'll lurk elsewhere, I believe is the term, and not post anymore.

    Feel free to comment among yourselves .. or not.

    As far as I'm concerned any/all of you may ask an administrator to delete this entire thing ... and my account too for that matter.

    I see this ***** :argue::argue: start to take seed and it's just so stupid. I'd rather share and remain decent, otherwise it just isn't worth the bother. I'm done.

    I don't get it, why does everybody try to go out with a bang? Why not just... not post/not login anymore? :)

    It's a COMMUNITY, not a gathering of EXPERTS.

    Sorry for being too techy. There are clearly intermittent problems with 1.25, clealry not seen by Jon or many others (It works for me!) - I thought this may be an opportunity to nail the issues... but clearly not!
