As title really, I have the GL-MT3000 Beryl AX, but there is no country code option in Luci that I actually change.
I tried to follow the directions here to change the code, but there just isn’t this option available under Luci’s Network→Wireless→Advanced Settings. I do not live in the US but received what seems to be a device intended for the US.
The current setting shows Country: 00 (in Luci).
I then SSH’d in and tried uci show wireless which shows:
I also tried 4.2.0 beta 4, stock and a snapshot firmware.
i.e. uci set wireless.mt798111.country=‘XX’ etc? where XX = country code?
[EDIT]; I tried this with both mt798111 and mt798112, it didn’t complain i.e. seemed to accept it, but when I commiited and rebooted, it didn’t stick either? Still shows ‘00’ in Luci. Pretty frustrating.
Thanks @Almahadeus using that link I modified the wireless config to add the two regions 5 and 13 for 2.4 and 5G, but it’s still not showing up in Luci. I had to ADD these two “options” as they were not even there in the first place.
Not sure if it helps find networks any better, actually I have tracked the issue of networks down to using the GLiNet app on my iPhone 8 (finds networks to repeat very quickly) vs it just searching and never finding any on the iPAD Air 3 Glinet App. Both with DFS switch on.
Hi thanks for having a go at answering these, much appreciated.
A1: 4.2.0 beta 4, but I tried the snapshot dated 19th as well. I did not try the stable F/W.
A2: Could you post a screecap please? I cannot find suuch a “General Settings” tab or setting in the Beryl AX Menu, either in the GliNet App, nor WebAdmin, nor in Luci. I did follow the details in the link I posted above (which is similar to your directions) to modify the Country Code from Luci namely:
" You can find this country setting in the web admin GUI (LuCi) unter https://192.168.1.1 → Menu: Network/Wireless <192.168.8.1 for GLiNET>
** click “Edit” on any of your Wi-Fi radios, then open the “Advanced Settings” tab - and there is the “Country Code” field.
** If you do not see any “Edit” button, then you have not yet configured any Wi-Fi radio configuration using “Add”
A3. I’m sorry, I do not have sufficient technical knowledge on Router F/W to comment on OpenWRT commands, but I did read somewhere that whilst GLiNET base firwmare is very closely related to OpenWRT, it does deviate from it. I tried a few “iw” commands yeterday but they didn’t work very well. Using WinSCP to access the wireless file was much easier for me (and I did modify it).
You can actually change the country code in etc/config/wireless.
What happens is the frequencies will change, but it will still show “US” in the top corner.
In my view, for the ordinary user who wants to use this Travel Router and change the frequencies on the fly, GLiNET absolutely need to make this change of country much easier, preferably in the GLiNET App (and in the WebAdmin); no user should have to delve into the etc/config/wireless file to change this, so as to comply with a specific country’s frequency limitations (or benefit from that country’s wider frequency range).
I do have the MT3000 running on a snapshot from a weak ago It has connected to a xfinity Wireless on Channel 161 40Mhz. It did not want to connect 80Mhz wpa2-psk/wpa-sae(default for MT3000 is wpa2-psk)
