i have a router, and sometimes i want the wifi enabled, but most of the time i want it off. how do i set openwrt to never automatically bring up wireless?
even if wifi is on when the system shuts down, i want it off when the system comes up next time.
i cannot find this option anywhere in the documentation.
in "wifi status" i want to set "autostart": false. even after ive done "wifi up".
i WANT to have to manually start wifi every time my router boots, how do i configure this?
that breaks "wifi up", and starting wifi from luci after that will re-enable wifi on boot.
while that does indeed prevent autostarting wifi, it gets reverted the second i try to manually start it. this is unacceptable. i want to be able to shutdown or reboot with while wifi is running, and for wifi to be disabled when the system comes back. any solution that requires me to manually turn it back off is unacceptable.
my wifi card is a Qualcomm Atheros AR946
yes this is a VM.
i do not see how any of this is relevant. i just want to set that autostart flag to false, even when wifi is enabled. no documentation i can find shows me where that flag gets set.
yes, when its disabled. but this also renders me unable to use the interface at all. which is not what i want. i want to be able to re-enable wifi at will, and then have it automatically be disabled again after reboot. i want to non-persistent enable it.
I want to be able to startup my wifi manually at any time. only to have it undone the next time the system reboots for any reason. if i enable my wifi, and then immediately reboot or shutdown, i want wifi to be disabled again when the system comes back.
