I am running Openwrt on my new Fritzbox 4040.
I would like to make it my camping wifi AP, therefore I have installed travelmate.
Sadly it does not work as it should.
After every reboot, every and every change to the “Client” or “Master” Device, the “Client” Wifi is always disabled and has to be enabled manually. Also sometimes it takes ages to even get it going - with constant resetting of the device.
Also if the client wifi channels change, the AP+STA “Construct” does not work most of the time, even if enabled manually. This is by far not an ideal experience.
I am not sure if it additionally has something to do with DFS, thats why I have left my bug report at the ath10-ct github open. But greearb meant I should also contact you guys here.

https://github.com/greearb/ath10k-ct/issues/189 I have posted a syslog and dmesg there.

oh, and I would like to mention, that many of my devices perform sub par, when it works. e.g. my OnePlus3 gets only 30-50MBits Netto over the 4040, showing only 70-120MBit Brutto. On my Unifi APs I get way above 150MBits Netto and close to 433MBits Brutto.

I think there is another error in Openwrt.
When I try to select a "DFS"-Channel, only STA connects but AP is not shown.
Also Owrt shows Channel 0 auto 5000MHz instead of the proper Channel.

If I select e.g. Channel 36 (non-DFS) it works without problems.

same issue on my mt7621 + mt7915 device
AP + STA never works good.

also notice issue on mt7621 + mt7603 + mt7612
and on ipq4019

I have to first check the channel of upstream wifi
and set the channel to that. and it works.
