Flashed fresh build of CC RC1 still the same low signal on 2.4ghz , about 1/2 of what it is supposed to be. I have an ap in the next room currently, got 100% signal (-45 -50 dbm) on xiaomi fw....with openwrt it shows 52% and -75 dbm. What confuses me is that running iw phy1 info shows
Coverage class: 0 (up to 0m)
Available Antennas: TX 0 RX 0
on all of my other routers it shows some antennas,for example,this one from netgear wnr2200
Available Antennas: TX 0x3 RX 0x3
Configured Antennas: TX 0x3 RX 0x3
The same shows d-link dir825 b1.
Well,for now it's WIP,no more. Not a supported hardware. I guess the only way to get decent wireless performance from this device in openwrt is to use proprietry modules as pandorabox does. open source modules lower the wireless performance dramaticly (no 80/160 on 5ghz and very low 2.4 ghz signal reception/ap strength).Hope that may change in time. For now I'll try to build BB with proprietry modules, there are some leaked(?) sources on github.
I had no luck so far compiling with propriety modules, but found out that bb firmware built with patches from openwrt wiki actually has decent wireless power on 2.4 GHz, but connection quality and strength is reported badly, for example it shows -80db signal on xiaomi, but -51db on the ap it is connected to. So it's something wrong with driver reporting data. Latest trunk now bugs more then previous versions, iwinfo segfaults , luci is not working in wireless section, good news is that something is being developed there. Tried every binary available, all suffer from the same low signal on 2.4ghz, some have 5ghz, some do not. In log there is something about 80/160 MHz support on 5ghz, but iw phy0 info shows only 20/40 support, so there's a lot to be done to reveal all he capabilities.
