RT3200 wireless radio unrecognized after upgrade to OpenWrt 23.05.0 r23497

Hello all,
I seem to have lost 1 wireless radio (wl1) after upgrading. Only wl0 comes up and is recognized. Luci shows the other radio as "Generic unknown". wl0 is reported as: MT7622 802.11b/g/n

I used unattended-sysupgrade to upgrade this Belkin RT3200. There was some manual changing of installed packages needed to replace wolfssl in order to allow the upgrade, I also replaced the wpad-wolfssl version to wpad-openssl.

The version is now:
OpenWrt 23.05.0 r23497-6637af95aa / LuCI openwrt-23.05 branch git-23.236.53405-fc638c8

Edit: reverting to the version listed on the toh device homepage works:
https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/23.05.0/targets/mediatek/mt7622/openwrt-23.05.0-mediatek-mt7622-linksys_e8450-ubi-squashfs-sysupgrade.itb
For those needing help upgrading and getting the unattended-sysupgrade errors, I found it easiest and safest to log in via SSH, and do the following:

opkg update:
opgk download libmbedtls12 libustream-mbedtls20201210 px5g-mbedtls wpad-basic-mbedtls
#to have an offline ipk if connection would fail
opkg remove <all packages containing wolfssl>
opkg install libmbedtls12 libustream-mbedtls20201210 px5g-mbedtls wpad-basic-mbedtls

You’re likely missing firmware that was split out.

opkg update
opkg install kmod-mt7915-firmware
reboot
