I have tried this firmware on Linksys WRT32X, it does not work; perhaps, with WRT3200ACM, but will do that later.

WFM on a rango, and has already been reported as working on a venom, should be no difference. Or do you mean the image provided, if so you can try the FW by way of this

Edit: there are images to be found off the Stuff link on my avatar if you need a wrt32x image with this FW baked in(check the configseed first), but easy enough to just flip a link as per the post linked above.

you cannot use wrt3200 acm image on wrt32xx, the wifi firmware will work, but you need the right image for the device

I have used that image personally and it works perfectly on rango (WRT3200ACM). I don't think they are interchangeable.

Unfortunately it is not working for me on a clean 19.07.1 installation:

Upgrading kmod-mwlwifi on root from 4.14.167+2019-03-02-31d93860-1 to 4.14.167+2020-02-06-a2fd00bb-1...
Collected errors:
 * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-mwlwifi:
 *      kernel (= 4.14.167-1-734418a30f4e0536a7ce36280d6263b6)
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-mwlwifi.

Same errors that I got on default 19.07.1.

@imk82 @WildByDesign I will try to rebuild tomorrow.

Update: Hostapd dependency warning
If anyone understands us, I am always available. Meanwhile, I continue to use the new firmware for the wifi card and it proves stable and performing. For more than a week now.

My custom version of v19.07.1 for wrt3200 is someone need it :!Akptf6SIAvkQrNM0YrG4u99LAkZBYw?e=090HIK!Akptf6SIAvkQrNM10L7Fii8eQIT0UQ?e=C7oEKF

it's a version custom for my need, it is not the same packgage as the version on the site

Using a soft link to test things, this gets the BLOB from the mwlwifi repo since it has now been pushed.

wifi down
cd /lib/firmware/mwlwifi
mv 88W8964.bin 88W8964.bin.ORG
wget -O 88W8964.bin.OEM
ln -s 88W8964.bin.OEM 88W8964.bin
## for back to original
## rm 88W8964.bin && ln -s 88W8964.bin.ORG 88W8964.bin
wifi up
Thanks to the help of someone on IRC I managed to compile 19.07.1 also on Arch. I share the whole folder with the module and the driver to be installed and the whole image for those interested.

so next 19.07.2 will include the new firmware or will be on the old one?

Commit has not yet been included on master. So for now I can say no.


The google link to the latest drivers' ipk you compiled seems to missing or broken. Can you repost?

Thanks! Will try these now.

I was able to install the 88W8964 driver but not the new kmod. Do I still need the kmod?

is your kernel image 4.14.167?
