Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 wifi not work on OpenWrt

My wireless config(/etc/config/wireless):

config 'wifi-device' 'wlan2'

option 'type' 'mac80211'

option 'channel' '6'

config 'wifi-iface'

option 'device' 'wlan2'

option 'network' 'lan'

option 'mode' 'ap'

option 'ssid' 'MyWifiAP'

And I run wifi shell command, get output:

wlan2(mac80211): Interface type not supported

Can somebody tell me why?

My openwrt version: 15.05

Kernel version: 4.4.14

wifi firmware: iwlwifi-7265-ucode-16.242414.0.tgz

Best regards,

SWJ

Hello swj312,

 

 

Thank you for your question.

 

 

As far as I can tell, you're using the correct driver and firmware to match your kernel version. However, our support for Linux* is limited.
