The modelname of my WNDR3700v2 is set as "NETGEAR NDR3700v2" in /tmp/sysinfo/model and luci web interface. Is this done intentioanlly?

Works ok for me:

BARRIER BREAKER (Bleeding Edge, r39043)
root@OpenWrt:~# cat /tmp/sysinfo/model

The text is also ok in Luci:

Model NETGEAR WNDR3700v2

What build are you using? Where have you got it? Built it by yourself?

In /lib/ change model=$(ar71xx_get_mtd_offset_size_format art 56 10 %c) to
model=$(ar71xx_get_mtd_offset_size_format art 55 10 %c)

Do you have a modified art partition in your router?

In my wndr3700v1 and v2 the type name is filled with 0xFF characters, just like the function expects.;a=blob;f=target/linux/ar71xx/base-files/lib/;hb=276ccbb21f111a7f481af0c38cf2c1e767311936#l27

And in my wndr3800 the text WNDR3800 starts at offset 56, like in the function.

Changing the offset doesn't have any effect at all.

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by anonymous

I have never modified my art partition - at least not intentionally.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by anonymous

I just looked into my art partition. 56 is the offset.

comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by anonymous

I replaced the art partition with the one from this thread
and this solved the problem!

comment:8 Changed 3 years ago by teppot@…

I'm seeing this too with r42625. Changing the offset doesn't help and I haven't modified the art partition.

comment:9 Changed 3 years ago by teppot@…

Also, in addition to the W disappearing, there is also a garbage character at the end:

0000000 N E T G E A R sp N D R 3 7 0 0 v
0000020 2 del nl

I'm also having this issue. The name is wrong on my model which I updated from Kamikaze to Barrier Breaker.

I also have two more models of the same router. These are flashed directly from the stock firmware to Barrier Breaker and they have the model name spelled correctly.

The issue concerns mainly "newest" 3700v2 routers.
Fixed in CC trunk by r45140
Discussion/explanations also at duplicate bug #18992
