I have two ath10k devices, R7800 and ArcherC7v2. With version 17 I used to bridge their respective 5ghz radio using WDS (ath 4addr mode) in order to use the STA router lan ports to connect various devices.
I just upgraded to version 18 and the WDS option just doesn't work.
Radio links just fine with the same RSSI as v17 but no wlanX-sta interface is created nor added to the bridge. hostapd configuration is correct with
bridge=br-lan correctly written.
Main error on AP side:
daemon.err hostapd: Failed to create interface wlan0.sta1: -122 (Not supported)
Then I simply queried iw aaaand:
Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * AP * monitor * mesh point * P2P-client * P2P-GO * P2P-device
WDS mode isn't listed at all!
The same on the other ath10k router using both ath10k and ath10k-ct, community and non-commercial versions, openwrt trunk and stable versions.
Is it just a nl80211/mac80211/ath10k driver regression in version 18 and nobody saw it?
Can anybody help me out?
If you need any more info or log reach me out!
