No Wi-Fi tab in Asus RT-AC58U router configuration on installing openwrt 18.06.1

I tried installing OPENWRT on my newly purchased Ac58u, but no matter what I did I just couldn't get wifi to work. There was no WiFi tab under the network tab, no content inside the etc/config/wireless file and the 'wifi status' command returned empty brackets. Kindly help me with what potential problems could be causing this, and potential fixes/suggestions.
