About this deal

Finally, I decided to power cycle the board, it got an IP address, and I could finally access it via SSH using the default pi/pi credentials. I just want to see some figures at this state of software as, with the right setting, those can be improved by 30-40% (from my experience with routing on NEO4 with various USB to Ethernet adapters). However, it looks like FriendlyELEC focused on OpenWrt image (FriendlyWrt) more than on Ubuntu Core for now which has a few issues.

On mine, I had to enable both "enable root login" and "enable password login" on the GUI to be able to log in. Again my personal opinion is that the Nanopi-R4S reaches the maximum performance of my network also in the bridge mode.The reason is concerns from the OpenWRT community about using the open source driver built in mainline Linux rather than the closed one with proprietary firmware blob by Realtek. FriendlyWRT, or at least the sources for it, is just a few minor configuration tweaks for performance + default packages. Keep in mind this is mostly provided by our awesome community members in a best effort manner and therefore there are no guaranteed solutions. If you want stability in a production environment or low headaches as a novice user, skip rolling releases.

On the OpenWRT page for the R4S it has a warning that says "Currently (2022) the 1GB version is not bootable from snapshot. This explains also a lot wrt poor Samba performance (where UAS blacklisting of the Seagate disk is missing too). Its compact size and abundant ports and interfaces make it popular in portable devices development, auto electronic devices, industrial applications, GPS systems and multimedia systems.It has 1GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB eMMC Flashand is featured as a high performance and low cost development platfor. I’ve tried first to leave it idle for 10 mins, then only test the WAN and then the bridged network (WAN+LAN 1Gbps). The effects will ripple through time and space and improve the support of a lot of other devices now and in the future. In many cases, the device isn’t fully supported by the “vanilla” Linux kernel, so you’re either stuck with some old kernel build or, by using a newer mainline kernel, you miss out on some features and performance optimizations that haven’t been upstreamed yet.

Run the following script on your Linux PC host, we'll only mention "debian-bullseye-desktop-arm64 os" for brevity, but you can apply the same process for every linux OS.

Someone could argue here that the switch should be placed after the LAN and not before WAN, because WAN is meant to be connected to your ADSL/VDSL router. The Nanopi-R4S’s case is very compact and it’s only a bit bigger than its predecessor Nanopi-R2S, but also includes more horse power under the hood. output (despite warnings on the FriendlyArm FAQ about what kind of supply to use – the Blitzwolf was the only thing I had handy with lots of power output.

IMPORTANT AND REMIND not include SD card , you need an SD card to install OS and you also need power by 5V/3A . As I have no idea of your level of technical skill or the requirements of your country laws in terms of electricity supply etc, I accept no responsibility for any damage attributed to following advice in these pages. Those IRQ affinity optimizations are not for a benchmark environment but for real world scenarios where ‘everything on cpu0’ pretty often creates an artificial bottleneck. The way I usually create a Yocto BSP layers for those SBCs is that I use parts of the Armbian build tool and integrate them in bitbake recipes and then add them in a layer. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.We strongly think that the NanoPi R4S could have been more successful as a personal router device with additional 2-3 LAN ports. Dual Gbps Ethernet Ports - The NanoPi R4S has two Gbps Ethernet ports: one directly extended from the SoC and the other converted from a PCle. To assemble the board inside the case, you will first put the thermal pad on top of the CPU and position it carefully inside the case. Well, I won’t try to get into too many details in the specific things that are different between those two.
