I am testing out OpenWRT - moving from dd-wrt.
I have two Netgear routers, R7000 & R7800.
I wanted to test and configure the R7000 since it is the old (now backup) router before switching the R7800 over to OpenWRT.
The main feature I wanted was isolated VLANs, which I now have working on the R7000!!
So, I was about to pull the trigger and migrate the R7800 over to OpenWRT and then remembered I had not configured the wireless portion. To my surprise, the Network >> Wireless menu is not there. I have another, older router which I had also done some testing with and the Network >> Wireless menu is not on that one either!
I did some searching on Google and the forums and found that I need to enable wireless in the /etc/config/wireless and that directory does not exist. Also the command uci show wireless returns "eci: Entry not found". I found other search results saying the if config files are wrong, the wireless menu will be missing, however, except for the VLAN testing, I have made no other changes. I have made zero changes via CLI, everything was made via LUCI browser.
Looking forward to reading some insights.
