Tplink 8980 stock firmware 2.4ghz wifi problem

I flashed the original stock firmware.
2.4ghz wifi not working. wifi ssid is enabled but no devices are connecting. The 2.4ghz wifi macadress appears as ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff and does not change.
Attempted ip link set dev ath0 address 01:00:00:00:00:02.

How can I fix ?

You should ask TP-Link for help on this topic since you are using their stock firmware and not OpenWrt.

That said, it is possible that the wifi factory data has been damaged or erased. If that is the case, wifi may be permanently inoperable.

It works with openwrt. It was working before with the original firmware. After installing openwrt, wifi did not work with original firmware. If I install openwrt, wifi is working with it.

That's good news, then. If wifi doesn't work on the stock firmware, you still have an option using OpenWrt.

But to figure out why the wifi isn't working with the stock firmware isn't working, you will have to ask TP-Link.

ok. thanks
