Mediatek MT7613E 5Ghz Wifi Driver

Would it be possible to get driver support for the Mediatek MT7613E 5GHz Wifi Module? I have the WG1608 and only 2.4GHz is working in OpenWRT. I have gotten information from ZBT that the MT7613E module is used for 5GHz, but I cannot find the driver. If this could possibly be added to the kmod-mt76 package, or standalone driver that would be very helpful.

You need kmod-mt7615e and kmod-mt7663-firmware-ap

Thank you for the quick reply. Do you know where to find kmod-mt7663-firmware-ap? I can't find it in the packages, and doing a Google search is not finding anything either. I did find kmod-mt7615e and installed it. Please let me know if you have any information. Thanks

It only exists in snapshot. Are you using 19.07?

@LGA1150

I am currently using 19.07.3 firmware to see if I can get 5GHz working on the WG1608. I need to use GoldenOrb firmware as I have a modem, but that is running 18.06, which it looks like these MT drivers are not compatible with. But if I can get 5GHz working in 19.07.3 that would be a start.

I'm afraid that you have to switch to snapshot.

Thank You! I got the snapshot installed and both kmod-mt7615e and kmod-mt7663-firmwanow re-ap packages installed and both 2.4GHz and 5Ghz WiFi is working! Thanks again!
