VoCore2 Tips

1. Switch port0 between “wan” and “lan”

change in VoCore2, /etc/config/network, first vlan is lan ports, second vlan is wan port, put 0 into second one, port0 will become lan port.

config switch_vlan
    option ports '0 2 3 4 6t'

config switch_vlan
    option ports '1 6t'

2. Restart wifi in console.


3. Clean memory of VoCore2 for long time usage.

sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

4. Play radio with VoCore2 Ultimate
