Question Kobo Forma unable to connect to OpenWrt Wifi configuration

Hi everyone.

I have been trying to connect the Forma I just bought to my wireless access point, and I haven't been able to make any progress.

For whatever reason, the only time I am able to see the wireless access point/connect to my access point is when the device is factory reset. And it is also only able to connect to my 2 GHz access point. After it connects, downloads the update, and restarts, I am no longer able to see this access point and I can not connect to it manually. None of my other devices have an issue connecting/recognizing my access point

All this is to say, is there a known subset of wireless access point configurations that the Kobo line supports?

Firstly, all of the Kobo WiFi devices only do 2.4GHz. If you have a 5GHz only access point, they won't see them.

Other than that, to the best of my knowledge, the Kobo devices can connect to all 11n access points. I have connected mine to a few over the years, with no real issues. I don't use OpenWRT, so I don't know about them.

I've had an OpenWRT work with Kindle & Kobo H2O original no problem.

Perhaps you've configured your access point wrong. You do need 2.4GHz.

Thank you for you feedback. Unfortunately, I believe my issue is due to a driver bug in the mwlwifi Marvell 88W8x64 chips (Linksys WRT devices). https://github.com/kaloz/mwlwifi/issues/278

Unfortunately, the workaround for disabling WMM did not work. If anyone knows any other workarounds, or the specific chip for the Kobo Forma please let me know.
