Recently purchased a second GL device, the GL-MT300N-V2 to go with my AR300M-EXT as a backup device.
My intentions are to use it as a mid-long range WISP with a USB ralink WIFI adapter something i have been doing for 18 months already on my AR300M-EXT.
Out of the box with the GL-MT300N-V2 i’m having two issues:
- The rt2800-usb drivers are missing on the MT300N-V2. Easy to solve since i’m able to install the packages manually but i find it odd that the AR300M has the drivers included yet the MT300N-V2 doesnt.
- With the above drivers installed (Rt2800-usb and dependencies) i proceed to plugging in my Ralink USB Wifi Adapter go to scan for networks. From this point the router will no longer return any results. It seems the moment i plug in my USB Wifi adapter the scan feature is broken from this point. Unplugging it to use the internal Wifi results in the same no results. The only way i can get it to return results again is by doing a full reset without installing the rt2800-usb packages (internal wifi).
The same procedure works fine on my AR300M so i really cannot understand whats going on. Are there any differences between the firmwares perhaps its a bug of sorts?
Any advice welcomed otherwise i will have to return the MT300N-V2.
