#6922 closed defect (fixed)

Inability to use failsafe mode on TL-WR741ND

Reported by: fercerpav@… Owned by: juhosg
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc: juhosg@…


When i enter failsafe mode, it ups only eth0 that corresponds to the integrated switch and so i can't access the hardware without serial console (as the packets from my host are coming via lan[1-4] interfaces from device POV).

I'd expect failsafe to work on "wan" port, but for that the system should bring eth1 up.

Probably #7015 is also related.

Here's the patch i used to make failsafe work on "wan" port (probably it should be made eth1 for all ar71xx devices, but you should know better ;) ):

Since introduction of proper swconfig support everything works just as
expected (one can connect to failsafe via any lan port), so this
should be considered fixed and closed.
