MT7610E drive installation to VR200, Deck works

Hi guys,

According to the main page of VR200 deck and 2.4 GHz wifi unsupported, you know,

Good news, I can phone call while internet connection fully active. I checked a few times no problem.:heavy_check_mark:
The connection linkage DSL line goes splitter and separates Router and Deck. I am grateful :slight_smile: :dancing_men:

Bad news, I can't enable wifi 5Ghz :question: There is nothing about wifi under network section.

I searched my router's support for MT7610E driver from git.openwrt.org

Thanks to Kevin Schmidt and Hauke Mehrtens shared a good way to enable 5Ghz wifi but I don't know how can I use this. What is this .dtsi extension :dizzy_face: .

I tried to install few packages in this page from the software section: kmod-mt76x0e wpad-basic kmod-usb-dwc2 kmod-usb-ledtrig-usbport
But nothing happened network tab on Luci interface.

I only found related MT76 on System Log

So do u have any recommendation for using 5 GHz wifi Official or Unofficial way :question:
Could you any help :question:

I've seen this topic now.

@slh Could you explain, How can I able to enable 5 GHz? Is there any way?

Apropos 5G I can not prompt did not check
Has left the factory software

Okay, Thanks for answer :slight_smile:

I have WiFi 5GHz working on VR200 using the latest snapshot build (r14418-d0f295837a) - assume this is thanks to the work of Kevin Schmidt and Hauke Mehrtens. Not sure when this will be in a stable release though, hopefully the next one?

I hope so, using OpenWrt 19.07.3 r11063-85e04e9f46 version. Did u update via system > software > updates.
I did via the above way but Luci interface freezed badly then had to soft reset. Due to I am staying a little bit away from this way :blush:
btw could you share status of mt76x0e at system log

I installed from TFTP via the bootloader / UART header, then had to install LuCI manually as it's not in the snapshot builds.

Status of mt76x0e from dmesg (Kernel Log):
