Encapsulation/Decapsolation Problem on LAN (eth0.0) / Priveledged WLAN Interface (ath1) bridge

Reported by:… Owned by: john.crispin@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: fon-network Version: Unknown
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: unknown



i have problems with bridging data when transfering data between eth0.0 and ath1.

When sending a package (src lanstation/dst wireless station) which is larger then 1469 bytes (payload) it will not be transmitted. Sending a package the other way (src wireless station/dst lanstation) works. transfering data between wireless station and lan station is no problem as long as transfering data between wireless station and fonero is no problem, transfering data between lan station and fonero is no problem.

This might be unnoticed so far as most user will use the fonero as router, therfore dont transfer data between eth0.0 and ath1 interface.

As this is only a problem in one way, i guess there is a problem in vlan encapsulation/decapsulation ..

How to reproduce:

ping from lan station ip to wireless station with the command:

# ping -t s 1500 <wireless station ip>

you will see only the second icmp fragment when using tcpdump on the wireless station ip, the first one (larger then 1469 byte) is dropped.

As part of the upcoming firmware release, we're reviewing old open tickets to see if they are still relevant, which is why you get this response now.

I suspect this is the same issue that received a workaround in some previous firmware and will be properly fixed in (see r1810 and r1811 for details).
