WIFI disconnects immediately with LEDE

Sat Sep 16, 2017 8:50 pm

Hello out there,

I have a vocore2 ultimate.
I updated to last version of LEDE using https://lede-project.org/toh/hwdata/voc ... re_vocore2

Then I saw that my wireless file was:
Code: Select all
config wifi-device 'radio0'
        option type 'ralink'
        option variant 'mt7628'
        option country 'CN'
        option channel 'auto'
        option disabled '0'
        option hwmode '11g'

config wifi-iface 'ap'
        option device 'radio0'
        option mode 'ap'
        option network 'lan'
        option ifname 'ra0'
        option ssid 'VoCore2'
        option encryption 'none'

config wifi-iface 'sta'
        option device 'radio0'
        option mode 'sta'
        option ifname 'apcli0'
        option led 'mediatek:orange:wifi'
        option ssid 'UplinkAp'
        option key 'SecretKey'
        option disabled '1'
        option encryption 'none'

config wifi-iface
        option device 'radio0'
        option mode 'ap'
        option encryption 'none'
        option ssid 'Test'

config wifi-device 'radio1'
        option type 'mac80211'
        option channel '11'
        option hwmode '11g'
        option path 'platform/10300000.wmac'
        option htmode 'HT20'
        option disabled '1'

config wifi-iface 'default_radio1'
        option device 'radio1'
        option network 'lan'
        option mode 'ap'
        option ssid 'LEDE'
        option encryption 'none'


It was weird to have so many things, so I modified it to:
Code: Select all
config wifi-device 'radio1'
   option type 'mac80211'
   option channel '11'
   option hwmode '11g'
   option path 'platform/10300000.wmac'
   option htmode 'HT20'
   option country 'GB'
   option rts 'root'

config wifi-iface
   option device 'radio1'
   option mode 'ap'
   option network 'wan'
   option encryption 'psk-mixed'
   option key 'blablabla'
   option ssid 'Test'


That creates an AP and I am able to connect my iPhone there (I also modified the ethernet to work as a DHCP client and connected the vocore2 to my router using a cable).

However, after one or two seconds after I connect to the AP, then it disconnects automatically.
Here the log:

Some questions:

Why is that disconnection happening?

What driver should I use in my wireless file?

Why do I see 2 drivers or radios in my original wireless file?
I guess that perhaps the answer to this question is that here:
https://git.lede-project.org/?p=source. ... 2ec76d0f85
says: "(don't keep old config, as the original firmware uses Ralink SDK Wi-Fi drivers and not mt76+mac80211)"
and I forgot that. Is that the reason I saw like 2 different configurations in my wireless file?

Thank you very much for your time.

mt76 wifi driver is not very stable...

Return to VoCore2
