Omnia 3.10 disappeared Wi-Fi


#21

Same problem here, radio0 5Ghz is missing since a few days (10 days). It was working fine before.

config wifi-device 'radio0'
	option type 'mac80211'
	option hwmode '11a'
	option path 'soc/soc:pcie-controller/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/0000:02:00.0'
	option htmode 'VHT80'
	option country 'FR'
	option txpower '20'
	option channel '36'

But device pci for this radio seems missing:

Rebooting fixes this issue, but just for a while.
How to fix that ?

best regards,

Question: Do you have a kickstarter (revision 01)-board?
If so, its routcause maybe misdesigned capacitors (see post above Omnia 3.10 disappeared Wi-Fi).
As I don’t live in Prague, I desided to circumvent it (by doing cold reboots) until I’ve build my own router-server. Afterwards I will only reboot it as an access point after a software update.

Thank you for your answer. Yes it’s a kickstarter board.

Before Omnia I was using a netgear WNDR3800 that had exactly the same problem after a couple of years. Had to reboot it every day… So I ended up at that time with my own router, but wanted something more robust. That’s why I bought an Omnia, quite expensive. But now, same problem with the Omnia… I guess there is no RMA ?

I will try the heatsink too. Is there a thermal sensor on the ATH wifi board ?

Hello,

Your unit should be still under warranty as for Indiegogo backers, we have extended warranty period to 3 years.
I’ll write to you soon, and we’ll figure it out.
