The WiFiX version is based on a newer kernel than the stable release 2017 version of GoldenOrb. This allows a modem to be run in QMI composition.

It also has support for the EM7565 and other newer and not so commonly used modems.

It includes a custom Firewall page/tab for Custom TTL rules.

A splash page is added with Live Time network stats to better help aim an antenna.

The WiFiX version is compiled and maintained by Dairyman who compiles all GoldenOrb builds.

The new GoldenOrb builds (not yet available from the GoldenOrb download page) are (and will be) compiled with most of the items above, less the Splash page with Live stats.

The new WiFiX versions on the next release will also not have the Splash page. But, we will offer it on the forum to install as a separate package.
Thanks Jim.

Glad to hear there is active firmware support for the routers you offer. PS: got the 3526 up and running in no time.

How do we load the WE826-Modem Manager-APN-12-1-18.bin as a stand alone flash?. The WiFi don't start and I cant access via Ethernet cable? Something I should read?

Try https://192.168.1.1

Also, you may prefer to use this later build:

Could not use ModemManager lack of know how.

826-T_826-WD_ndis_V1.2_20180629_UPGRADE.bin [to load this I had to do the 30-30-30 reset]

The above is the only .bin file picking up my Three Flags (China) LTE LM 9265 modem Cat4 that arrived with my WE826 t(e) in 2016 - I could get it working assigning USB 0 but major problems with reliability and my ignorance

Some data-----from 826-T---

Code: Select all

Question: Why is none of the other (bin) files picking up Eth0 modem

Do I have to configure bridges and routes?

What is the difference between the 2018-09-02 and 2019-01-13 versions of GoldenOrb? Just bug fixes, or different features?

Each new version of GoldenOrb usually fixes or tweaks something and adds more modems. It may also add or remove certain features. I do not know there is a lot of difference between the two builds you mention.

I personally prefer to use the lasted version.

@JimHelms, do you still have the link to the earlier version of WiFix GoldenOrb firmware for WG3526? I am experiencing poor wifi thru-put on 2.4GHz with the latest. I have already tried the modem manager firmware for WG3526 and still yielded the same result. Thanks in advance.

I would use the Firmware Recovery Mode to upload the firmware.

That should assure there is nothing left behind from the previous build.

It is also required when going from a newer kernel build to an older one.

These are some of the builds I have. I am not sure which is what or the difference in them.

Thanks a lot @JimHelms and the heads up about firmware recovery mode.

My WiFi bandwidth on 2.4GHz did improve. Do you happen to have the WG3526 WiFix version openwrt-wg3526-GO2019-01-13-upgrade.bin somewhere? I couldn't find it anywhere. I would like to be on the second most recent build before the latest one with wifi issues.
