Huawei EchoLife HG556a C as repeater

Hi, I am new to openwrt. I have installed the 22.03.5 version on Huawei EchoLife HG556a C to use it as a repeater. It manages to scan the main ADSL network, but then when I select that it does not get any signal anymore. Any help?

Missed the top page warning at ?

I see, thanks. Is there any chance to get it work in the future? Any other suggestions?

Short answer, no. Long answer, not unless Broadcom have a huge change of heart and decide to release open source drivers for their chipset(s).

Thank you both!

Around the same time hell freezes over, so, not any time soon.

Try this filter.
If possible, avoid devices with 16mb flash, there's a couple of those in the list.

…and avoid everything that doesn't come with QCA-Atheros WLAN cards (if you care about WLAN functionality), so namely (old, pre-mt76) RaLink or lantiq-WAV300.
