Hi, I have some USB Wifi dongles that I've been trying to make it work on TL-WDR4300 usb ports:
Model: TP-Link TL-WDR4300 v1 Architecture: Atheros AR9344 rev 2 Firmware Version: OpenWrt 19.07.4 r11208-ce6496d796 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch git-20.247.75781-0d0ab01 Kernel Version: 4.14.195
root@tl-wdr4300:~# lsusb Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:a811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8811AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp. MT7601U Wireless Adapter
I tried one at a time.
and I've done:
# Just because I have plenty extroot space I used it instead of wpad-basic opkg update && opkg remove wpad wpad-mini && opkg install wpad-wolfssl opkg find *rtl8812* opkg install kmod-rtl8812au-ct wifi config # radio2 appeared uci set wireless.@wifi-device[-1].disabled='0' uci commit wireless wifi reload reboot
opkg find *mt76* opkg install kmod-mt76-usb # brings kmod-mt76-core opkg install kmod-mt7601u # brings mt7601u-firmware wifi config # radio2 appeared uci set wireless.@wifi-device[-1].disabled='0' uci commit wireless wifi reload reboot
in all cases device appers on luci, the mt76 allows to do a scan, the realtek doesn't.
both ones appears as
Generic 802.11bgn - Device is not active on luci, and does not initialize AP or STA config, both appears to show their macaddresses listing config using:
Please, if someone can help me in proper steps to make it work at least one of them.
