Than simply ask responsible Broadcomm developer. They are willing to help.


That is good advice, I will seek out the developer.

Monitoring the "wlan0" interface won't lead to any more information. That's why I asked for the monitor interface - it should give 802.11 traffic, too. Curious it doesn't  give anything at all, though.


Yes that is what I figured. Was the dhcpdump useful at all? I am going to try adding logging to hostapd, I didn't know that was an option. Perhaps that will give me more useful information.

Something like this?

Yes

Hey everyone.  Encountering the same hard limit.  Can't add a 6th wifi client and I'm using dnsmasq instead of isc-dhcp-server.  Monitoring dhcp, the 6th client never makes a request and device-side it looks like it doesn't even get to associate.  This seems in line with what CMDann is experiencing.

I'm also having troubles getting hostapd to dump any log output (possible bug?), if anyone has any tips for monitoring actual association attempts as opposed to dhcp, I might be able to produce more useful output.

I am also having the issue with hostapd not logging output. Here is my current hostapd config with the logging output added (and some comments to help me remember) haha.
  1. interface=wlan0
  2. driver=nl80211
  3. ssid=FREE_WIFI_NOT_SCAM
  4. hw_mode=g
  5. channel=6
  6. macaddr_acl=0
  7. auth_algs=1
  8. ignore_broadcast_ssid=0

  9. # Levels (minimum value for logged events):
  10. #  0 = verbose debugging
  11. #  1 = debugging
  12. #  2 = informational messages
  13. #  3 = notification
  14. #  4 = warning
  15. #
  16. logger_syslog=-1
  17. logger_syslog_level=0
  18. logger_stdout=-1
  19. logger_stdout_level=2
  20. debug=4

I have began searching for the wifi driver developers. Is this the correct driver? (I believe Igor linked to it in a previous thread):

https://github.com/dz0ny/rt8192cu

I've also been talking to my contacts with Lemaker who are looking into this driver issue as well.

Thanks, you guys are the best. I will look into it as well.

I've opened an issue on the Github project: https://github.com/LeMaker/linux-sunxi/issues/10

@CMDann : I am facing same issue. Have you get any solution?

CMDann  
Unfortunately no, I have received a driver from Lemaker and sent it to Bananian but I have not heard if anybody has been able to make it work yet.

As indicated in the issue in the linux-sunxi repo on github, it is most likely a firmware limitation.
