FS#3072 - Samknows WhiteBox8 misses 2.4 GHz pcie wireless NIC


software versions

tested & misses 2.4 GHz NIC

tested & has 2.4 GHz NIC


  • build OpenWrt master branch with a given commits and flash it on the device (my build config is attached)
  • run “iw dev” or “iw list”
    • in problem state it lists one interface (the 5 GHz wireless NIC)
    • in good state it lists two interfaces (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless NIC)


I think it has either to do with ramips: mt7621: switch kernel version to 5.4 or with ramips: mt7621: update PCIe node in dtsi. Between the known good and earliest known bad commit are multiple commits working together. I fear to test them one by one.

I tested further e714cf4195b5798f40a3442c01233ce4783ef0ad is also working. So my initial conclusion is wrong.

tested as bad 82df192a010418fac9c4db440490290f55f7e157

If my manual bisect is correct I am down to 10 possible commits between working and broken.

Can't reproduce it in a constant way. Sometimes PCIe1 is present. Sometimes it is not present. Maybe this is just a hardware issue on my device. I don't know. Kind of strange.

compiled r13225-bc0288b768, flashed it via TFTP and issue is present

flashing via "sysupgrade -n image.bin" has the same output
