  1. Am also stuck there. Dont know where to go from here. Will check all logs now.
  2. For WiFi with Armbian Kernel - You need a tweak - #printf "xradio_wlan\nxradio_wlan" >> /etc/modules.d/xradio_wlan The xradio_wlan driver has a bug and it needs to be loaded twice. Restart. To configure WiFi from LUCI we need the /etc/config/wireless file in place. My /etc/config/wireless - AP not yet working, Scanning works from LUCI config wifi-device 'wlan0' option type 'mac80211' option channel 'auto' option hwmode '11ng' option path 'soc/soc:pcie-controller/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/0000:02:00.0' option htmode 'HT20' config wifi-iface option device 'wlan0' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'OPiZero' option encryption 'psk2' option key 'password'
  3. Great... let me give this a try and will post the results back.
  4. Its Mega bits per second unfortunately When I stand very close to the OPZ then the link speed is 65Mbps. But the upload/download is only ~5 Mbps even when standing close.
  5. OpiZero as Hostspot - sftp: (standing nearby) Upload - 5 to 6 Mbps Download - 4 to 5 Mbps I just got my Opizero enclosure and now it sits snugly in there with its teeny wifi antenna. That could be an issue.

  7. I have been running Armbian legacy with Wifi as AP with HostAPD and Ajenti Core Web Configuration installed. It is running pretty hot. I will try armbianmonitor on this tomorrow. I also have a working OpenWRT build (Wifi not configured) and it is running cool.
  8. @RagnerBG - If you are building the image from scratch, can you include full bash and coreutils/linux-utils instead of busybox?
  9. That image posted by Hyphop on 4pda.ru is the same as the one created by following my Gist posted on GitHub from my previous posts. In fact I created my image and that gist following @hyphop's and @dreamdream's cues and directions. It uses Armbian uBoot and Kernel (including modules and firmware) and the rest is OpenWRT. If you read through my gist you will understand it. Since Wifi works on Armbian with a small tweak ( #printf "xradio_wlan" >> /etc/modules ) it will work on OpenWRT too with a similar tweak ( #printf "xradio_wlan\nxradio_wlan" >> /etc/modules.d/xradio_wlan ). The trick is you need to load xradio module twice because of a bug. We can make a generic sunxi build of openwrt to boot on OpiZero with Wifi support following this gist. https://gist.github.com/praveenbm5/3c81692e6b2b651bb450fb7fc45dff4d So if you can build a generic OpenWRT image with Wifi and other menus / pages / plugins enabled, it will be great.
  10. We use only u-boot and Kernel from Armbian. Rest everything is OpenWRT. It is just a quick and dirty hack to get things going but it should work with out issues. If you have done it before... you can do it again. Can you build a custom sunxii image for OpiZero?
  11. I have updated the GitHub Gist to make things even more obvious and easy. Let me know if there is any step I can improve. Check it out - https://gist.github.com/praveenbm5/3c81692e6b2b651bb450fb7fc45dff4d On supported routers, OpenWRT comes with a WiFi menu item under Network Tab but here in this build of OpenWRT for Allwinner boards it is missing. Even I am looking for ways to enable it but so far nothing worked. Ref: https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/walkthrough_wifi There are other ways using HostAPD for AP and wpa_supplicant for Wifi Client but all these methods are too cumbersome and rely on shell commands and config files.
  12. I changed /etc/config/network and configured lan with a static ip. I updated the GitHub Gist with the exact details. Thanks again. Does anyone know if there is a simpler web based way to configure WiFi in OpenWRT? I use DD-WRT on my home router and and WLAN configuration on it is straight forward. You need not bother with the underlyings on DD-WRT.
  13. I am using an off the shelf smartphone charger that supplies 5v/2A from Xiaomi. It does not have any fast charging tech built in. And ambient temperature is 25-30 C.
  14. Updated the Gist we started with the instructions. https://gist.github.com/praveenbm5/3c81692e6b2b651bb450fb7fc45dff4d
