My device is TOTOLINK X5000R, and my wireless config:
config wifi-device 'radio1' option hwmode '11a' option htmode 'VHT80' option channel '36' option type 'mac80211' option path '1e140000.pcie/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:02:00.0+1' config wifi-iface 'wifi_5g' option device 'radio1' option network 'wifi' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'wifi' option encryption 'sae-mixed' option key 'wifi' option ieee80211w '1'
My two clients are unable to connect to this WiFi:
- a very old iMac (2011). The SSID won't even show up on its list.
- Chromecast with Google TV. The SSID shows up in its list, but it connects for a long time before failing with message saying can not find the SSID. Sniffing on the interface shows no packets, meaning it probably fails at the connecting phrase?
My laptop and phone that only support up to 802.11ac can connect to the WiFi without issues.
I wonder if it's some compatibility issue? How do I fix that?
Another tangential question: according to the doc, this device should support 802.11ax, I wonder if specifying
hwmode '11a' is enough to enable it?
