No 5ghz with openwrt 23 using zyxel nwa 123 ac

Hello,

I compiled a snapshot of openwrt 23 a few month ago and all was fine, my zyxel nwa 1123 ac has 2,4ghz and 5ghz with that. Now I downloaded the openwrt23 rc and it does not come with 5ghz out of the box.

I tried to add the drivers in the list for additional packages but had no luck.

This works: Atheros AR9340 802.11a/b/g/n

This one does not: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9880 802.11ac/n but works as said in my custom builds (i dont have the makefile any more)

I used the following packages (copy pasted the profiles.json):

{"arch_packages":"mips_24kc","default_packages":["base-files","busybox","ca-bundle","dnsmasq","dropbear","firewall4","fstools","kmod-ath9k","kmod-gpio-button-hotplug","kmod-nft-offload","libc","libgcc","libustream-mbedtls","logd","mtd","netifd","nftables","odhcp6c","odhcpd-ipv6only","opkg","ppp","ppp-mod-pppoe","procd","procd-seccomp","procd-ujail","swconfig","uboot-envtools","uci","uclient-fetch","urandom-seed","urngd","wpad-basic-mbedtls"],"metadata_version":1,"profiles":{"zyxel_nwa1123-ac":{"device_packages":["kmod-ath10k-ct-smallbuffers","ath10k-firmware-qca988x-ct"],"image_prefix":"openwrt-23.05.0-rc3-4936cb3474d4-ath79-generic-zyxel_nwa1123-ac","images":[{"filesystem":"squashfs","name":"openwrt-23.05.0-rc3-4936cb3474d4-ath79-generic-zyxel_nwa1123-ac-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin","sha256":"","sha256_unsigned":"","type":"sysupgrade"}],"supported_devices":["zyxel,nwa1123-ac"],"titles":[{"model":"NWA1123","variant":"AC","vendor":"ZyXEL"}]}},"source_date_epoch":,"target":"ath79/generic","version_code":"r23389-5deed175a5","version_number":"23.05.0-rc3"}

If you see what I am missing I would be very glad getting a hint on what is wrong.

thank you

alex

Edit:

i did a opkg list on one of my NWA 1123 AC with openwrt that has 5GHz. I copy pasted that list to the firmwarebuilder and it built a openwrt with that but still no 5GHz. What could be wrong? I KNOW that that accesspoint can do 5GHz wifi.
