Wifi AR922x not detected after upgrade 18.06

This remember me another post...


Version 18.06 erased CAL_DATA partition of three of my routers. I don't know if your router had this partition, but if you don't get the calibration data, your router is bricked. Try to flash original stock firmware, maybe the CAL_DATA partition back, and then flash 17.01.04.

I have 2 ac-lite router.
Router A has 17.01.4. If I upgrade this to 18.06.1 wifi disappears. When I go back to 17.01.4 wifi is back again.
Router B has stock ubnt firmware. If I upgrade it to 18.06.1 wifi works well.

I restored the original ubnt firmware on Router A then upgraded directly to 18.06 and now wifi works on this router as well.

same problem in 18.06 (don't know previous versions). I think is the same device [1]

upgrading to snapshot (2019-10-25) solved the problem and wifi works as expected. I think/hope wifi will work in next stable (maybe 19.07)

my wifi broke completely with openwrt and original d-link after flashing - AR9287 ( D-Link DSL-2740B):

solution:
go back to d-link http://files.dlink.com.au/products/DSL-2740B/REV_F1/Firmware/Firmware_v2.04_(26-07-2012)/DSL2740B_F1_AU_2.04_07262012.bin

and you have working wifi again, and you can use it in openwrt.
somehow openwrt deletes important flash memory in 2nd update.

btw. i have eu Version, no Australia. but works also.
