BUG: firmware 3.212

The default WIRELESS password in the firmware for the AR300M is not “goodlife” but rather “PL20180515”.
Spent some time faffing about with this before I found the problem!

Can you let me know is this a router that you bought before? or recently?

3.212 will read unique wifi key which is put in the router during production. But it should not affect old products and PL20180515 should not be a valid wifi key. Unless you bought from some channels that we dont’ know.

Had the router for ages, so not new.
Never had the problem before and went back to 3.211 and the wireless password reset correctly to “goodlife”.

Can you do further test and let me know the details?

I’d like to do some further investigation of this problem.

I upgraded using the .tar (didn’t save settings) and I couldn’t connect to the wifi with goodlife.
I SSH’s to the router and saw the password in etc/config.wireless as in Post 1. I managed to connect using that.
Also, connected by LAN and confirmed password as in Post 1

Went back to old firmware (didn’t reserve settings), connected to wifi with goodlife, entered admin panel, changed WiFi password, then upgraded with “keep settings”.

This is an AR300M with external antennae - suggest you try and see if you can replicate.

Send you a private message. I need some more info from you.
