But no idea what is going wrong.

Does it work with LEDE 17.04?

I might have spotted an unintended change in https://git.openwrt.org/f3bdc4a76aa2.

Would you please try an image from https://www.kresin.me/files/ar71xx-nand/.

This could be related to task_id=1607 same problem but for Nighthawk X6 R8000

I tried the link suggested https://www.kresin.me/files/ar71xx-nand/

Did a sysupgrade of the R6100, still no 5Ghz. Removed /etc/config/wireless and rebooted (this rebuilds the file). Still no 5 Ghz. Here's the contents of the rebuilt file:

config wifi-device 'radio0'

      option type 'mac80211'
      option channel '11'
      option hwmode '11g'
      option path 'platform/ar934x_wmac'
      option htmode 'HT20'
      option disabled '1'

config wifi-iface 'default_radio0'

      option device 'radio0'
      option network 'lan'
      option mode 'ap'
      option ssid 'OpenWrt'
      option encryption 'none'

Yes, both 2.4 and 5 Ghz radios work as expected (come up, are visable in LuCI, pass traffic) on the R6100 with v17.01.4

Craig Miller commented on 19.01.2020 18:13

Any update on this issue?

The 5Ghz works fine in 17.01.4, but is NOT working in any later release, including 19.07.0.
