Uci commit not saving the network changes

Hello guys,

I face some issues and i need some help. I have order a Xiaomi router 6500 Pro , got ssh access and i have realize that openwrt is installed inside. Because is a chinese firmware to connect to my internet ISP i need to use pppoe on Vlan 7.
I have try to do manually changes in /etc/config/network , also using uci set .... and uci commit , uci commit network but after the reboot the changes are deleted and i lose the vlan config for WAN. What can be the issue?

It appears you are using firmware that is not from the official OpenWrt project.

When using forks/offshoots/vendor-specific builds that are "based on OpenWrt", there may be many differences compared to the official versions (hosted by OpenWrt.org). Some of these customizations may fundamentally change the way that OpenWrt works. You might need help from people with specific/specialized knowledge about the firmware you are using, so it is possible that advice you get here may not be useful.

You may find that the best options are:

  1. Install an official version of OpenWrt, if your device is supported (see https://firmware-selector.openwrt.org).
  2. Ask for help from the maintainer(s) or user community of the specific firmware that you are using.
  3. Provide the source code for the firmware so that users on this forum can understand how your firmware works (OpenWrt forum users are volunteers, so somebody might look at the code if they have time and are interested in your issue).

If you believe that this specific issue is common to generic/official OpenWrt and/or the maintainers of your build have indicated as such, please feel free to clarify.
