#10867 new defect

wrt54glv1.1, backfire 10.03.1, hang on multiple netflix streams

Reported by: sarodude@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: 10.03.1
Keywords: Cc:


If I run 2 wireless netflix streams through my wrt54gl it appears to hang. DHCP appears to not work. LUCI & SSH appear not to work. Wireless appears to not work. Existing wired clients seem like they can still talk to the wan side of the world.

I haven't tested this thoroughly as I'm strapped for time right now. I don't know if the real issue is bandwidth related or ???

I apologize for any improper info in this submission.

Well, I realized that I had a bad-ish ethernet cable that caused a partial mis-diagnosis. Also found a truer cause....

The cause appears to be related to bandwidth consumption. I got to download a bunch of OS updates from billyland - they have big pipes. One machine hogging the bandwidth caused the error condition.

The error condition appears to be the wireless somehow locking up. I was able to connect wired and everything else appeared to be working as usual. In fact, I was able to disable, the re-enable the wireless interface restoring wireless connectivity without a full reboot.

Any ideas?
