Hello All, maybe someone can shed some light on my problem. I originally installed Openwrt on my netgear R6100 and could never get the 5Ghz radio working until another member of Openwrt introduced me to LETE. Anyways, i removed the Openwrt firmware and installed LEDE, 5GHZ was working until i updated the firmware with the latest .Tar upgrade file. I've tried all of the ath10 drivers and no luck, also installed the Kmod-ath10 files without any luck on getting 5g radio working. Anyone else experience the same problem? there is very few info on this.. at least that i can understand. Thank you
Not sure if this matters but 5Ghz radio is working when i deactivated the 2.4 Ghz. Shouldn't they work simultaneously??
They should. However, you should provide logs (e.g.
wifi status output), so people can have a look. 'It doesn't work' is far too generic to get you any answers.
Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to upload my system log but get error message that its too large.
any way of uploading a pdf of the log?
Use a pastebin service like https://paste.debian.net/.

Kernel Log . https://paste.debian.net/913843/
So it looks like you are using the kmod-ath10k CT driver, have you installed the ath10k firmware as well? From what I can tell, it seems the drives tries to load multiple firmware versions, but ultimately fails.
On my (non CT) LEDE installations, I have this:
# opkg list-installed|grep ath10k ath10k-firmware-qca988x - 2017-01-11-ab432c60-1 kmod-ath10k - 4.4.48+2016-10-08-1
When i first installed LEDE i installed Kmod-ath10k and then installed ath10 firmware one at a time and rebooted the router, if i didn't see the driver i would uninstall the firmware delete the folder using wincp and installed the next driver. It seem to be working right now but when i enable the 2.4 radio the 5g radio signal drops and also download speeds drop. Wlan 0 should be my 5g radio. see below

Don't know then. Did you compare your signal levels before and after?
No i didn't... I only noticed the signal bitrate dropping from 300 Mbit/s to 6Mbit/s when i activate the 2.4 ghz radio
