How do I enable WiFi?

Issue: After flashing OpenWrt, WiFi is not working.

Root cause: For devices that have Ethernet ports, the default Wi-Fi configuration is OFF.

Solution: Connect your computer to the LAN port of the device, login the LuCI configuration interface at and enable the Wi-Fi network in Network > Wireless.

For devices that have no LuCI installed by default you can turn Wi-Fi ON by changing disabled 1disabled 0 in the /etc/config/wireless UCI configuration file, when logged in via SSH.
