took the plunge at took my GL-AXT1800 from 4.2.0 Release 2, to 4.2.1.
If I run on 4.2.1, I can connect WWAN, but the local network SSID vanishes.
However 4.2.0 release 3 works perfectly, and can repeat the network.
I have seen a number of people report this, mostly on the old 4.1.x firmware.
This is the first time I have experienced it on any GL-INET actually.
Wifif is pretty busy around here.
I have an MT3000 Beeryl, transmitting a80MHz on channel 52.
I can connect the AXT1800 no problem to this on all versions of firmware, but as soon as I do, the wlan nework vanishes, and nothing can connect to it.
I have reverted the firmware back to 4.2.0 r3, and the problem goes away.
Known issue in 4.2.1?
If not how do we go about getting telemetary to make the next firmware better?
Still the problem persists after upgrade to 4.2.1.
I used de-brick method to upgrade to 4.2.1.
Noted my PC could see the default 5G network from the router
Set up the repeater to repeat the network (channel 52).
Once this had completed I could no longer see the 5G network (it took time to vanish from list but could not connect).
My uboot version is uboot2.0 version:21.12.01 according to /uboot.html
Does the uboot need upgrading (I was not sure if this was part of the 4.2.1 img upgrade or not, guessing not). If so where do I get the AXT1800 uboot image from, your links took me to AX1800 -which I think is different chipset.
GL-AXT1800 Slate AX and GL-AX1800 Flint are the exact same processor and chips only difference is that the GL-AXT1800 has a fan, one less ethernet port, SD card slot, Power/reset button and a mode switch.
U-Boot does not update with firmware, it must be updated separately!
