FS#3902 - Device setup failed: HOSTAPD_START_FAILED

  1. Hardware: netgear, wndr3700-v4 (ath79 ath9k ar9344 ar9582)
  2. Versions of OpenWrt where bug occurs: 21.02.0-rc3, snapshot (ath79)

If /sbin/wifi is used to turn on wifi, an error message appears in syslog.

wifi appears to function normally nevertheless, but,

ubus call network.wireless status

erroneously reports that radio0 is down.

Steps to reproduce

  1. uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[0].disabled=0
  2. uci set wireless.@wifi-device[0].disabled=0
  3. uci commit
  4. wifi

Error message in syslog
