there is also missing additional information like the WLAN settings on the client and the Hitron
do a site survey search on the wlan0 intertface and show the network properties of the Hitron and also move the mouse pointer over the entries in the "open" column to see the security settings and click on "join" on the right
Security is WPA2 Personal (AES) for both wlan0 & wlan1 and the modem-router. I tried that before and now, but the modem AP is connected and immediately dropped intermittently with wlan0 as Client showing "Channel unknown" in Status. I switched wlan1 to local segment AP to avoid interference. It works stable vice versa. Access to Hitron Wireless settings is very scars via public UI, Band Steering is enabled if relevant. I can't freely change Hitron settings as this is common access WiFi.
Can someone suggest any resolution? I realize that combination of Atheros and Broadcom chipsets can cause issues, but this forum has many experienced pros to suggest some workarounds. Or may be someone more experienced can open a ticket for it in the Bug tracker?
My vote is to change the wireless settings on the Hitron to only use WPA2 and AES. Only reason to have TKIP or anything less is to support legacy devices which do not support WPA2/AES, which I do not know of *any* 5GHz wifi devices that fall into that category ^_^ _________________ An old man said, “Erasers are made for those who make mistakes.” A youth replied, “Erasers are made for those who are willing to correct their mistakes!” Attitude matters! ~ Anonymous

While trying to resolve 5gHz Client connection issue to the modem, I noticed another issue. When 2.4gHz wlan1 was assigned as Client to the modem, and 5gHz wlan0 as AP to the TPL router LAN segment, the wireless AP interface and wired Ethernet LAN interface were bridged, so the LAN interface has the same name in PC Networking Control Panel as the AP SSID.
But then if I change that SSID, the LAN interface name remains unchanged. Is that a bug, or how to update wired LAN interface name seen on the ethernet adapter in Windows Network Connections Panel? I tried to list the router interface names, but entering any command like "nvram get wl0_ifname" in WebUI Commands textarea does NOT produce any output from the router (using current Chrome browser)???
