    and what is mean 'work on an MT'?
    I did googling but I don't find it.

    thanks.



  • @jongrock-chun What firmware version are you talking about please?



  • thank you for your reply.
    firmware ver. is 0.2.2 b201



  • @jongrock-chun I think your screenshot - your 'wireless' config file - is a mix.
    These are the default (out-of-the-box) '/etc/config/wireless' files of Omega2.
    As you know the Omega's WiFi AP (ap) is working by default,
    but the Omega's WiFi client / station (sta) has not set yet.

    Here you are a guide for the MediaTek driver:
    MTK_Wi-Fi_SoftAP_Software_Programming_Guide_v4.2.pdf

    If I know well sadly there isn't any guide, man or tutorial for the WARP CORE V1.0 Onion Enhanced MT7688 WiFi Driver.
    You want to know on FW v0.2.2 b201 ... perhaps

    • 'mode 9' is for 'WirelessMode 9: 11BGN mixed'
    • 'sta' is for 'WiFi station'
    • 'MT' is for 'MediaTek' or 'MT7688' (this is the SoC of Omega2) or any other MediaTek SoC

    About WiFi versions, channels, 20/40 MHz bandwidth, etc. see also - for example - Wi-Fi ;-)



  • I'm appreciate of your help.
    I understood above.
    thank you again.
