The radio and related gear are sitting in a box while I figure out how to make the router work the way I want it to work. There's an awful lot about configuring Unix systems I don't remember and have to relearn. Now the router is unbricked and connected to my desktop machine with an ethernet cable, while I learn how to properly configure the network interfaces.
Example of one of the things I need to figure out: wifi in station mode or as an AP client? When I started, I thought station was the answer, maybe not.
