I have just taken down the package for 17.01.4, as it was compiled against the HEAD version instead. I have already fixed my build environment to point it to the 17.01.4, but now it is failing because of some files it cannot download from somewhere. Will have a look at it tomorrow.
Thanks for these, I've just upgraded from OpenWRT 15.05.1 to LEDE 17.01.4 and tried flashing your new release. opkg thinks its an older version...
# opkg install kmod-mwlwifi_184.108.40.206.3.4.0-20170818-e119077-1_arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3.ipk
Not downgrading package kmod-mwlwifi on root from 4.4.92+10.3.4.0.git-2017-06-06-1 to 4.4.92+10.3.4.0-20170818-e119077-1.
So the --force-reinstall option others indicate they've used is definitely required I think.
@slackline Yes, I am afraid that is expected behaviour: LEDE uses a naming scheme using "driver_version-commit_date" that I found confusing; my packages are named as "driver_version-driver_release-commit_id" instead, and sometimes opkg gets confused about which one is newer than the other. As these packages are considered "experimental" and are expected to be installed manually, I think this is a just little nuisance.
I installed LEDE 17.01.4 on my WRT1200ACv2 and 5GHz wifi did not work, but with your update it does now. Will need some days for stability testing.
For reference, I did this:
wget https://github.com/eduperez/mwlwifi_LEDE/releases/download/e119077/kmod-mwlwifi_220.127.116.11.3.4.0-20170818-e119077-1_arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3.ipk --no-check-certificate #uname -a said kernel is 4.4.92
opkg install --force-reinstall kmod-mwlwifi_18.104.22.168.3.4.0-20170818-e119077-1_arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3.ipk
Thank you for this update. Working great so far. I seem to find that the LEDE Stable branch 17.01.x builds have far less issues on the WRT3200ACM compared to many of the recent trunk builds. So I am thankful that you take the time to keep mwlwifi current on the stable branch for the community.
@eduperez Great stuff, thank you. You are keeping up just as fast, if not faster, in comparison to community trunk builds with regard to mwlwifi driver/firmware related package. This is very much appreciated.
I have been running your latest "760f7bf" for approx. 20 minutes thus far and so far it's working well without issue. It looks as though yuhhaurlin may be 'going on a bug fixing tear' right now which is great to see.
EDIT: Up just over 7 hours now and still zero issues with devices disassociating and such. Good stuff!
