So im just doing this thread to get some feedback from owners of the mediatek routers that use the MT76 driver:
https://github.com/openwrt/mt76 - branch v19.07
At this point it doesnt matter what router you have with this chipset, there are a couple of issues in the V19.07 stable branch that haven't been seen in the V18.06 - from my experience so far.
I own and try to fix issues with my two routers, Unielec U7621-01 and Xiaomi Mir4A Gigabit.
Both boards have identical issue in terms of the wifi config issues.
There is two issues so far and a few minor annonyances:
- Setting Country code in the wireless/device configuration/advanced section, creates a situation where the clients connecting will keep doing this:
deauthenticating from *:*:*:*0f:A9 by local choice (Reason: 3=DEAUTH_LEAVING)
Which makes me believe there is some sort of driver > country code issue going on? - mismatch of codes?
This was not an issue on the V18.06 mt76 driver?
Using the hostapd not wpad
- Setting the 'Allow legacy 802.11b rates' limits the 'Maximum transmit power' to 13dBm and not the 20dBm its capable of?
hostapd: ACS: Survey is missing noise floor
spamming the kernel/system log area.
Well this issue is due to the fact for some reason? this is missing the code in the current V19.07 branch of the MT76 git repo?
I'm not sure what happened, but it seems this branch was cherry picked and missed out a load of important patches?
There are pull requests in that repo confirming the issue, but no response of acknowledgment has happened?
So feel free to add to this thread, any issue you may have only for V19.07 releases!
Then I can try and submit patches to fix these issues.
