Engenius EPG5000 No 5Ghz Wi-Fi :(

Hi,

I have installed LEDE 17.01.0-rc2 r3131-42f3c1f / LuCI e306ee6c93c1ef600012f47e40dd75020d4ab555 branch (git-17.033.24085-e306ee6) and got it running. But there is only 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi and no entry in the Wireless for 5Ghz.

What do I need to do to get 5Ghz running ?

kind regards

Peter

Do you have the ath10k and correct firmware installed?

Hi,

I have not installed any other software yet.

How do I install the ath10k driver?

Thank you for your fast reply - appreciated.

kind regards

Peter

OK I see I can download the driver through available packages . . . but there are several

which one is the correct driver ??

kind regards

Peter

OK fixed and working, not only do you need to install the driver but also the firmware then reboot and hey presto 5Ghz wifi seen in Wireless tab.

Yeah, like I said: you need both :slight_smile:

# opkg list-installed|grep ath10k
ath10k-firmware-qca988x - 2017-01-11-ab432c60-1
kmod-ath10k - 4.4.48+2016-10-08-1 

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks for getting back to me, I didnt realise when you said firmware you meant the kmod file :slight_smile:

Do you know if this issue is going to be fixed in the final release ??

So far the performance of the EPG5000 is good and strong signal. Pity the unit does not support PoE but guess consumer unit so no need.

Thank you once again for taking time to get back to me - appreciated !

kind regards

Peter

I forgot the 'kmod' word, but i wrote 'and'... I can imagine it made little sense :wink:

The build code has all the necessary bits:

define LegacyDevice/EPG5000
   DEVICE_TITLE := EnGenius EPG5000
   DEVICE_PACKAGES := kmod-usb-core kmod-usb2 kmod-usb-storage kmod-ath10k ath10k-firmware-qca988x
endef
LEGACY_DEVICES += EPG5000

So it should be okay...

Do you have a URL for the image you used?
