MT3000 - cannot use wifi client / repeater

I have been unable to use the repeater function or connect to any wifi. I’ve tried both latest stable as well as the snapshot build.

My phone and laptop can connect to this router as well as the other router with no problem. There are no MAC restrictions

Try to set a Random MAC address a few times. Somehow mine only eventually connects when I do this.

Tried random MAC a few times and I’m still getting this error:

Connection failed, will retry later…
While attempting to reconnect, your router will periodically scan for Wi-Fi networks, and your guest Wi-Fi network will be temporarily unavailable during the scan.

Bump?. Have no idea what to try next

Maybe you can reset the device or update the latest firmware

Long shot, but also try to change the country code in Luci (under Network → MTK WiFi). Use latest stable 4.2.2 sw.

Who knows if the router is streaming from just one of the few WiFi channels not available in your region?

See this table with a list of countries & channels :
