    daduke : can you quickly explain step by step how you connected to the serial console.

    for me it seems quite strange. I connected the apu6b4 with my computer using a micro usb cable (tested with three different cables micro USB / USB-A) and turned…

    Hi there

    I recently bought a apu6b4 board. I face difficulties connecting to the serial console in order to install OPNSense. The board has a microUSB serial port.

    Hi! Just wanted to let you know we're working on adding the RTC clock menu to the BIOS setup menu and it will likely be part of the next firmware release.
  • Looks like the fix is already available in Debian 11, I've managed to set up hostapd on channel 36 with a WLE900VX card with the latest kernel 5.10.113:

    Hello Dysmas ,

    BIOS versions 1.10 and 1.14 are quite old. Perhaps try updating to one of the newer releases on https://pcengines.github.io/ ?

    Hhi fredfox ,

    Unfortunately there is no option to set the clock from inside the BIOS. As a workaround, could try netbooting a Linux distro via the builtin iPXE and set the clock from there.

    I'll ask if we could add this option to the BIOS menu, as it…

    So, did it work alright? :)

    If it works fine, and if you provided some details, we could add it to the list of supported Wi-Fi cards in the official documentation

    Hi all,

    I've been using an apu2 as my home router/server via an MC220 media converter on a 1G fiber optic line for years without any problems. Now I've 'upgraded' to an apu6b4 in order to get rid of the MC220. I transferred the SSD (Debian bullseye) from…
  • Hi peanuts ,

    AES-NI is supported natively by the APU3's SoC, and it should just work without extra configuration or modules. As for QAT, SafeXcel and CESA, none of these are available in the APU3.

    So no, you don't need to select any modules in OPNSense…
  • Hi all,

    Can anyone point me to whether I need to select one of the cyrptography modules* in OPNsense to get the best performance out of my Board? I was looking for info in the documentation in regards to AES-NI, but didn't find any.

    Hi computersalat ,

    Can you provide some details:
    - which firmware version you were running before
    - which firmware version you updated to
    - which modem are you using

    Some possible fixes that come to mind:
    - Test the modem in the mSATA slot
    - Swap the SIM card…

    Hi,

    did setup a gsm router/WiFi hotspot with my APU3D4.
    Everything did work fine until I decided to update the firmware. (was obviously a bad decision)
    Now I don't get the modem up and running because of
