Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 4.2.8

Hello!

 

I have recently put this together:

 

   - Omada Controller v4.2.8  (Ubuntu 18.04 on a Raspberry Pi 3B)

   - (1) TL-R605 (v1.0.0 firmware)

   - (1) TL-SG2008 V3 (v3.0.0 firmware)          (connected to the TL-R605 carrying wired clients)

   - (2) AP620 HD  (v1.0.1 firmware)                (one is connected directly to the TL-R605)

   - (1) Dumb switch between the other AP and the TL-R605

 

The setup is as follows:

   - No extra VLANs

   - DHCP reservations are made (and static IPs for the APs)

 

The client history traffic (Clients - <click client> - History) appears to be very wrong, more than a factor of 10 or 100.  This seems to happen with many clients.  As an example, I have a Samsung smartphone that was connected to an AP this morning and it stated it had transferred > 10GB of data in 30 mins.  However, the router statistics (Statistics - TL-R605) show << 1GB of data was transferred, and I can't imagine the smartphone sending / receiving this much traffic internally.  Another example has a computer connected through the dumb switch to the TL-R605 and its client history shows 0 bytes traffic while I know this is incorrect as it's been transferring data continuously.

 

Samsung smartphone client history:

 

 

TL-R605 traffic during the same time period:

 

Does anyone have similar experiences, or can help me debug this?  The client history is an important feature for me.

Thank you very much in advance!

 

(PS: The second bug I see is the clients switching quickly between wired and wireless nodes in the log files and claiming to switch roaming ~4x a minute over and over again, but these are known bugs I found in other community topics.)

@symbiotic_ic 

 

Take a look at this forum post, a few of us have reported similar random traffic data.   TP Link are aware of it and I think are investigating
