Finally got my Omega2 to reliably work with Mikrotik wifi in WPA2PSK-AES mode!
Here's the trick: as discovered earlier by @Scott-Horsley the option mode 'sta' allows connecting to AP, but does not allow any useful transmission. I found out that if you switch to mode '9' (original setting) following a successful connection in mode 'sta', without reboot, it will work!
Try this on a clean Omega:
- set your SSID, password and mode with the following commands:
uci set wireless.@wifi-iface.ApCliSsid='yourssid' uci set wireless.@wifi-iface.ApCliPassWord='yourpassword' uci set wireless.ra0.mode='sta' uci commit
- then edit /etc/rc.local to include: (before the "exit 0" line)
/sbin/uci set wireless.ra0.mode=9 /usr/bin/nr
Do not commit the mode=9, you need config file to remain set to mode='sta'. Reboot to try out.
ps. in an out-of-the-box Omega2, this will skip the installation wizard and you'll need to install the Console manually
