No Wifi on Ubiquti Routers on ar71xx

Description

When creating a Ubiquiti Router profile with make menuconfig in trunk on ar71xx no wifi (ath9k) and no wpad-mini is pre-selected as default packages. As a consequence the firmware is compiled with no wifi.

Installing the driver after flashing with opkg does not fix the problem. wifi detect comes upo empty. Probably something else missing in the profile?

One more thing, looking at .config file that is created, while ath9k and wpad-mini are missing as default, kmod-usb-core, kmod-usb-ohci and kmod-usb2 are set as CONFIG_DEFAULT despite the devices such as Bullet M, Nanostation M, etc do not have a USB connection.

I think this profile needs some cleaning up.

One more thing. The ubiquiti bullet does not start wifi with wpad-min. it starts allright with hostapd, so hostapd should be in default profile.

Did you accidentally select the 'Ubiquiti Routerstation' instead of 'Ubiquiti Products'? Because the RouterStation one does indeed not select ath9k, but it's also meant for a different device.

I just tried making a fresh config with the 'Ubiquiti Products' profile, and it selected all the right packages, so you probably have a messed up .config.

I suggest you start again with something fresh.

Hi,

I cannot confirm what you write. I just created a new .config file from scratch. I select nothing but ar71xx target plus ubnt image. This is what I get:

Was this a fresh checkout?

comment:7 in reply to: ↑ 6 Changed 6 years ago by anonymous

Replying to nbd:

Was this a fresh checkout?

This was a 'make dirclean', then 'make menuconfig'

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 6 years ago by nbd

try rm -rf tmp .config; make menuconfig

comment:9 in reply to: ↑ 8 Changed 6 years ago by anonymous

Replying to nbd:

try rm -rf tmp .config; make menuconfig

Same result.

Did a make distclean out of frustration. Still same result.

Hi,
I am not the only one who notices the ubnt products target is broken and needs fixing of default pakcages. See here in December 2010:
