Adding Wi-Fi to MV1000 Brume

No, the T2U and brume have basically just arrived. The chip is rtl8811au.

Where can I find this newest version?

The 0422 one is already the latest version.

Can you pls check its ID as mentioned in this post? You can check in Linux or Windows.

Or ssh to MV1000 and use lsusb. If the command is not found, install it first.

opkg update
opkg install usbutils
lsusb 
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2357:0120 TP-Link 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

Pls check on your windows pc. It is not recognized by MV1000

I see. I’ll borrow my sister’s PC.

USB\VID_2357&PID_0120&REV_0200
USB\VID_2357&PID_0120

Are the hardware ids

@yasmisan I have added the id to the driver.Please update the driver:kmod-8811au_4.14.151 2020-4-30-1_aarch64_cortex-a53.zip (681.3 KB)

Thank you. How is the driver updated?

Nevermind, I see the kmod-8811au in the package manager. Re-installed and rebooting now.

What am I supposed to do with the attatched .zip archive?

edit: I installed the .ipkg through opkg install and my T2U plus is working! Thank you!

Hello Guys, I do not have UI for Wifi appearing either.

Could you please have a look ?

  1. lsusb: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0846:9052 NetGear, Inc. A6100 AC600 DB Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8811AU]

  2. I already made opkg install kmod-8811au_4.14.151+2020-4-30-1_aarch64_cortex-a53.ipk

  3. Have just this Screenshot_1

I’m very sorry to reply you so late.At present,The firmware support AWUS036AC/AWUS036ACS by default.

Brume w/ the Alfa AWUS036ACS adapter (got from Amazon) is working without any issues on firmware 3.102-0422. Plugged it in, restarted the router, and then it was recognized and appeared in the UI.

Will these adapters work with other Gl.iNet routers with stock firmware or only with the MV1000?

At present,Only MV1000 support wifi-dongle.

Hi @lizh

Have your DWA-171 arrived? Hope it is Version C like mine.

Sorry, DWA-171 have not supported by default.

Hi @lizh @alzhao
Just bought an Alfa AWUS036ACS, plugged into Brume. Rebooted.
However, the Wireless Client menu does not appear. Running the Adguard firmware version.

How to proceed?

It’s ok.

Use openwrt-mv1000-emmc-3.103-0527, and it works!
Superb!!
