SOLVED [BPI-R3] Openwrt snapshot image builder no MTK or Wireless in LuCI

Hello, I’ve build the snapshot, but there is no option for wireless or “MTK” on LuCI. And I didn’t found mt7975 on openwrt repository. How to install the wifi interface on snapshot

I’m using this command:

make image PROFILE="bananapi_bpi-r3" \
PACKAGES="luci luci-ssl \
mkf2fs e2fsprogs blkid blockdev losetup kmod-fs-ext4 kmod-mmc kmod-fs-f2fs kmod-fs-vfat kmod-nls-cp437 kmod-nls-iso8859-1 \
kmod-hwmon-pwmfan kmod-i2c-gpio kmod-sfp kmod-usb3 f2fsck" \

maybe it’s better to create an image here? or you are striving to increase the level of knowledge in Linux.

You need kmod-mt7915e and kmod-mt7986-firmware for WiFi to work. They should be included by default actually, so I wonder why it doesn’t work for you.

Well, I’ve rebuild the image using firmware selector which gentenaar suggest, but stll the wifi interface still didn’t work neither in LuCI nor CLI even though the software installed

Thank you lot for saving my time for tinkering the software. I never knew there is firmware-selector which makes image build more easier

try to compile with my package list, wifi works on my router. paste the list of packages without quotes

Thanks for the solution now my wifi is working after waiting for a while. I think the culprit is the USB serial debug which is disabling the wifi function after read

Which kind of serial adapter do you use?

Problems with profilic Adapters are known,all others (cp210x,ch340,ftx) should work.
