NTP/Time Synchronization Settings tab missing


I have a TP-Link Archer C6 v3 and two TP-Link EAP235-Wall devices running on my network, all of them running the latest stable build of OpenWRT (22.03.3 r20028-43d71ad93e).

I noticed on the EAP235-Wall devices I have an additional "Time Synchronization" Tab in my System page. (System -> System -> Time Synchronization)
This tab is missing on the Archer C6. What is the reason behind this?

DLed from https://downloads.openwrt.org/, or built using image builder ?

Someone got an issue with missing NTP tab: LuCi time setting and server.

Maybe you're in a similar situation and that thread helps?


Downloaded the "vanilla" OpenWrt image from the firmware selector page.

What's the output of

ubus call system board
~# ubus call system board
        "kernel": "5.10.161",
        "hostname": "router",
        "system": "MediaTek MT7621 ver:1 eco:3",
        "model": "TP-Link Archer C6 v3",
        "board_name": "tplink,archer-c6-v3",
        "rootfs_type": "squashfs",
        "release": {
                "distribution": "OpenWrt",
                "version": "22.03.3",
                "revision": "r20028-43d71ad93e",
                "target": "ramips/mt7621",
                "description": "OpenWrt 22.03.3 r20028-43d71ad93e"

Try making a backup and then resetting the device to the default configuration. See if the tab comes back. And if it is back, then restore your backup and see if it stays there.

On the Archer C6:

On the EAP235-Wall:

Looking into the developer extension I can see the tab, however the tab is being hidden.

I took a quick look at the JS source on GitHub, but could not figure out which routine is setting the hidden flag.

Also in this case a factory reset of the C6 was worked it's magic and the tab is now visible. :man_shrugging:
