    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Not a proxmox user but had my fair share of wireless network cards especially the ones that fit in the mini pci-e slots, see here but this was for 6 port nic units from cwwk and topton (N5100 and N100). I would first double check the wireless network card is getting detected, do you by chance...

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    Well about 3 other openwrt guys have now mentioned that mini pcie port is for usb 3g/4g modems only and not wireless mini pci-e cards. I can't be 100% if 4 port ethernet cwwk/topton etc routers have a working mini pcie port for actual wireless wifi cards, but I can say that my own cwwk (N5100)...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    It can happen in bios, seen it with many laptops and desktop pcs its like its running at full load in bios, but yeah once its running with an os, the energy saving features and cpu clocks etc can drop and so will the heat and energy usage, to me that is normal. Yeah that bios tweak may not work...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    256GB Toshiba nvme I am guessing, some nvmes can run hot while others not so hot so its almost trial and error. The WD nvmes I read are good for low power usage and heat, either way this is why I advice some form of active cooling. I have an noctua 120mm silent fan cable tied to the top lid so...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    It takes some digging so take some time and explore your own bios, if you check my own round up but from N5105/similar here I tried to make a list of where those settings are in the bios, there is a table to help guide it better. Since each mini router pc is different the settings maybe mixed...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Becks did a great job of mentioning some bios tweaks here, its always a good idea to search for his name and bios tweaks in general since it changes at times, also when searching check the times and find the newer ones. Some more also here here here my own round up but from N5105/similar here...

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    thanks, yeah did try this already by disabling sata ports, usb ports even and just leaving the mini pcie wireless card in the slot and booting openwrtx86 off the usb stick, lspci still shows no device. Card is warm though. I have spoken to a few others on openwrt community and they suggest the...

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    @VLMT and @merseburger just a quick question, did you guys have to do any magic to make you wallytech wifi card work with these cwwk/topton mini routers? I have 3 different mini routers, 2x cwwk 6 port nic ones and also a new topton 6port router, but the Wallys MT7915 wifi card does not get...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Might be best to test it and see if you even need the copper shims or not, anthony gave good advice earlier about this since you can even file down contacts but I didn't see anything wrong with my included copper plating parts, if you see at 12.02 into that video he is trying to see if there is...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    sanfable did a fantastic video here I wasn't even aware of removing that copper plate so did that also and just used some artic/mx3 something paste lying around, I always recommend still using at least 1 fan on one side to cool the unit even a very slow fan like an 120mm noctua silent fan.

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    I don't have any other pci-e devices sadly but yeah did consider this, but the chances of 3 different mini routers not working feels far fetched considering 2 of them are new units. I guess it is looking like another pci-e device to confirm if those ports are good, I suspect its just these mini...

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    OS, tried windows 10,11 (usually would say missing pci device) and openwrt latest x86 build with latest 7915 driver and firmware. lspci utilities does not see it either. Is there a way to enable it or check in bios?, there was only wake on lan BT/wifi so I tried on with that. Also tried...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Has anyone by chance found this issue, I have a wireless pci-e card (wallytech DR7915) works fine on desktop PCs, but zero detection on 3 different mini routers from cwwk/topton? This is with latest biose's installed and latest wallytech dr7915 firmware & driver in openwrt also.

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Its not that simple imo, depends what brand you have of a router, cwwk or topton etc. Its much better to contact the Seller and ask for advice on the bios update itself since its easy to flash the wrong bios and brick the system and then there are other issues such as a blank hdmi screen and...

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    Yes this is something not always mentioned, these mini routers sometimes you can switch it on and get no display sometimes, had to wait a good 1-2 minutes once, but oddly afterwards it boots up fine after like 5-10 secs. This happen on both a cwwk replacement mobo and an topton N100 brand new...

    NEW! Topton 10Gb 2xSFP+ 4x2.5Gb i5-1240P

    It sounds like we are still a good year or 2 away from getting a mini router that can make full use in routing, nas and 10G duties, but just a guess. Would still be interesting to see some iperf benchmarks still. Do you think its better to get an micro-atx motherboard with few 16x and 4x Pci-e...

    Topton i3 N305 device

    No worries, these mini systems have a lot of technology and then it changes every 5 minutes. If you are having specific issues with your mini router though, its a good idea to post a fresh new post where people maybe able to help since these mini routers can be sometimes hit and miss.

    CWWK/Topton/... Nxxx quad NIC router

    See becks reply to your other post above since it maybe easier that way, I have recently tested my cwwk v5 N5105 units and also N100 topton units and boy are they are fussy with certain branded nvmes, I found patriot and gigabyte nvme drives were giving issue with no power or display with them...
