I just compiled an image with kernel 5.10.16, and dont know why, I just added some packages for LuCi and sysupgraded, no wifi.... I can't add encryption (password).. and I reflashed with linksys oem and flashed with openwrt factory image, same thing..
I reflashed with linksys oem and flashed with openwrt factory image
I hope it had wifi in factory FW?
What firmware did you flash now, that it still doesn't have wifi?
I tried image builder for WRT3200ACM/mvebu and it's missing WiFi firmware (fails to build image)
I also tried the online "custom image from snapshot/release" thing and it built me an image that's ~2MB smaller than usual, and after installation it behaves like your screenshot, since it's missing WiFi firmware.
somewhere along the way that had changed to m in my config, but as I had turned the radios off some time back, I failed to notice on my build. Or, to put it another way, count your blessings.
I builded again, and it works now, if I look into my .oldconfig, the
CONFIG_PACKAGE_kmod-mwlwifi is set to ''y''
so I guess it was ok....
