i just setup a apu2c4 with dd-wrt prof. license. with latest dd-wrt firmware
i tried out various minipci.e modules but the system boots up only with WLE600VX module (qca9882) ...
i tried ar9285, AR9485, ar9382, ar9280 (full and half size) and AR9592 chipset - no success, system keep rebooting, led for minipci.e slot doesnt glow when any of these modules is inserted and the system is caught in a bootloop.
the 2x minipcie slots seem functional, wle600vx alone in any of the minipcie slots is no problem ....
any advice ?
apart from that the system has quite impressive openvpn capabilities ... hitting 52mbps at 256bit aes encryption keeps the cpu at 2-3% cpu load, i cannot test faster here, my internet connection is just 52mbps ... i guess it can easy go +150mbps ...
but the wifi part bugs me, i want to build a dualband system , with one cheaper 2.4ghz module and one 802.11ac module ...
is this maybe bios related ? the apu2 is factory new , about 1 week old ... directly from pcengines
EDIT: solved the issue today with Brainslayers help, the next firmware release past 8.11.2017 has no more trouble with it
