[OpenWrt(LEDE)] how to connect to wifi?

Hi, I’m using BPI-R2 new image: BPI-R2 OpenWrt(LEDE) Souce code : 2018-05-09 (BPI-R2 new image: BPI-R2 OpenWrt(LEDE) Souce code : 2018-05-09)

first I want to explain what I’m doing. I’d like,

  1. to connect the BPI-R2 to my local wifi. (what I’m trying to do now)
  2. to connect my PCs trought ethernet to the BPI-R2 (done, works out of box)
  3. on the BPI-R2 to forward internet from the wifi to the ethernet (to do later, I’ll need 1 first)

in System>Starttup>Local Startup I added the next lines,

stp_uart_launcher -p /etc/firmware &
sleep 2
echo 1 > /dev/wmtWifi
exit 0

in Network>Interfaces I added a new interface called wlan0,

It seems to match properly the hardware (MAC adress is the right one), but after that I see nowhere I can set the essid and password. What should I do now ?

OpenWRT doesn’t support the onboard wifi. You will probably have to buy a mpcie wifi device in order to use wifi with the BananaPi R2, at least until somebody figures out onboard wifi support (can’t find an article on this website on that… :cry: )

Wifi-driver for internal wifi does not support wifi-client (echo 1 does not work). Starting on 4.9 it is broken and without help i cannot get it working so i focus on ap-mode. Netherless 8t will not be merged ro openwrt upstream. Some users (@abbradar and imho @lexa2) created a fork where they included my patches, but afaik these are outdated
