Wifi connection problem with Omega2
So... to get mine to connect I had to create a new SSID that ONLY provides 2.4GHz. My normal one does both 2.4 ad 5 on the same SSID which seems to confuse the Omega2.
Same problem with Omega2 - can not connect to Wifi router (ASUS RT-AC66U). Omega 1 connected perfectly under exactly the same conditions. Spent hours trying different solutions described on forum - no luck.
Seems like I have to put my 4 Omegas in the box for some time and go back using ESP8266 based boards - may be Omega team will solve it some day. Guys, when basic/core functionality of the device is so buggy and unreliable - this is crap, I'm sorry to say that even if it disappoints all those people excited about KickStarter concept, "visionaries", "innovators", who is working hard, etc., etc.
All the configs are pretty much default
output from aps:
ASUS_24G 74:d0:2b:3f:ce:f8 WPA2PSK/AES 63 11b/g/n
uci show wireless
root@Omega-379D:/# uci show network
Completely agree this is bullshit. Step 2 of the INITIAL setup should be bug free. Did it go through any QA at all?
@Nilay-Desai Bought the first Omega with the thought I would use it with the camera, guess what, they never got the camera working and dropped it all together. Some will say use a web cam not the original idea.

@Michael-Smith The fix for me was to downgrade my router from AES encryption to TKIP (which required me to also switch it from 802.11n to 802.11g/n mixed mode), and then follow the steps in https://community.onion.io/topic/1149/omega2-fails-to-connect-to-wifi/25 to fix up
/etc/config/wireless(although it's possible that after switching the router config the standard setup might have just worked).
It's a bummer that AES isn't currently supported. Hopefully that will get fixed.
Thank you for suggestion, though it didn't work for me. Most likely there is more than one issue with WiFi (not only TKIP/AES matter). Also, TKIP is far less secure than AES (https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/123091/is-wpa-psk-aes-safer-than-wpa-psk-tkip-aes).
I can tell for sure that AES/TKIP is NOT an issue, because I was able to connect my Omega2 to my mobile (in hotspot mode) with WPA2PSK and AES. "APCLI LINK UP - IF(apcli0) AuthMode(7)=WPA2PSK, WepStatus(6)=AES!"
All default configuration, by the way - no config files changes, etc. - problem is somewhere else (may be more than one place).
To summarize: no way to debug Omega2 Wifi (no meaningful logs) and no working solution at the moment to connect to 2 of my WiFi Routers (Mikrotik and ASUS).
First, Omega do not support 802.11ac, so please connect to 2.4GHz
Second, Please use AES
Third, please change option ht '20' to option ht '20+40'
Well, guys. I've had the same trouble with wifi but I solved it by changing router mode from 802.11n only to 802.11b/g/n mixed.
That's f**king stupid because Omega 2 should support 802.11n according to the docs.
