On my Asus RT-AC66U (rev A) unit (running build 40559), VAP's (bridged to VLAN) are not working. Authentication fails.

The fixes in this topic don't work and I can't try the mentioned wlconf, as I have a MIPS-based device.

Tried some older builds (currently 36079), but VAP's work only on 2.4 Ghz there (but do work).

Any idea's what I can try next? This seems like a dd-wrt issue based on the topic mentioned before...

If you're going to stay stuck in router database listed builds, you might as well take aim and blow your foot off. In other words, you may want to UPGRADE to a build that has a better chance of working as well as research the workaround commands...

VAPs not working at boot fixed for unbridged VAPs with r40564:40566. Workaround startup command:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;stopservice wlconf;startservice wlconf;startservice nas (there are a few alternatives, search).


Quote:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;wlconf eth1 down;wlconf eth1 up;wlconf eth2 down;wlconf eth2 up;startservice nas


Quote:
sleep 20
nvram set wl1.1_hwaddr=
nvram commit
stopservice nas; wlconf eth1 down; wlconf eth2 down; wlconf eth1 up; wlconf eth2 up; startservice nas; logger "VAP workaround executed";


Quote:
sleep 1

Very helpful response, indeed, appreciated, mate!

If you read carefully, you should've spotted that the build I mentioned isn't in the router database (lot older). Oh and by the way, I tried build 43334 with the same results (VAP's not working).

Also, I explicitly stated that the workarounds not work for me. I think you referring to this:

Code:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;stopservice wlconf;startservice wlconf;startservice nas


But no, that isn't working.

Instead of being a wisecrack (excuse me), you could also help people by being of added value. For example, giving different workarounds which might work (I didn't find them) or at least point people in the right direction.

See my edited post. Apparently, I was done editing before your response posted. You're welcome.

Thanks, that was very helpful.

Code:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;wlconf eth1 down;wlconf eth1 up;wlconf eth2 down;wlconf eth2 up;startservice nas


Did the trick. I was aware that it was some kind of MAC-address issue in relation to the BCM wireless driver.

I hope the issue get fixed soon so we can get rid of these workarounds, good luck!

This also fixed my issue with VLAN on my ac66u. Is there an upstream bug tracking this that you are aware of kernel-panic69?

There probably is still an open ticket on this, I just don't have a link handy.
