I installed Openwrt 21.02.3, but my wireless device doesn't show up
root@OpenWrt:/etc/config# iw list
The PCI device exists, though:
00:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR5008 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
And I have the ath9k module:
aead 3456 1 dm_crypt
ath 18976 3 ath9k,ath9k_common,ath9k_hw
ath9k 103536 0
ath9k_common 12064 1 ath9k
ath9k_hw 349568 2 ath9k,ath9k_common
cfg80211 278080 4 ath9k,ath9k_common,ath,mac80211
compat 1088 4 ath9k,ath9k_common,mac80211,cfg80211
Is there another module I might be missing? Do I have to enable the device to get it to show in iw?
What target/ device?
Going on a limb and guessing x86, you might have to recompile with
Ubiquiti Bullet M
root@OpenWrt:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo
system type : Atheros AR7240 rev 2
machine : Ubiquiti Bullet M (XM AR7240)
AR5008, an early (actually the very first) Atheros n chip. These often-- or always-- had the calibration data in a dedicated EEPROM connected to the 5008, the way that laptop cards are made. Does the boot log show any errors related to EEPROM (or anything about the ath9k driver?)
Here's the output of dmesg. Not seeing anything about the ath9k or the eeprom.
Atheros AR5008 Wireless
To my knowledge there is a separate driver for ath5k.
Despite the name, ar5008 needs ath9k.
Interesting, based on the chip code I would have thought otherwise
lspci -nn. After searching the device id
168c:002a, I found this thread.
Hello and thank you for reading me. Sorry for my bad english.
I have a D-Link DSL-2740B type F1.
This modem is connected to another modem. Any help? Thank you in advance.
I needed to install kmod-owl-loader.
iw list now lists the device.
