#12498 closed defect (worksforme)

UCI changes to wifi do not appear to take effect

Reported by: istenson@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Built from trunk source for a TP-Link 1043nd v1.8, the welcome banner shows "Bleeding Edge, r33123"

Changes made with uci set do not seem to take effect. To recreate, build with iw selected and then run:

uci set
uci commit wireless
iwlist channel

the last command shows:

wlan0 11 channels in total; available frequencies :

Channel 01 : 2.412 GHz
Channel 02 : 2.417 GHz
Channel 03 : 2.422 GHz
Channel 04 : 2.427 GHz
Channel 05 : 2.432 GHz
Channel 06 : 2.437 GHz
Channel 07 : 2.442 GHz
Channel 08 : 2.447 GHz
Channel 09 : 2.452 GHz
Channel 10 : 2.457 GHz
Channel 11 : 2.462 GHz
Current Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)

from the number of bytes being captured (using monitor mode) according to /proc/net/dev, I'm pretty sure that the device is still on channel 11 even though "uci show wireless" claims that it is on channel 4.

Either way, uci and iw do not agree for some reason.

  • Status changed from new to closed

You're supposed to run "wifi up" or "/etc/init.d/network restart" to apply the changes to the system.
