Dell venue 8 pro wifi, not compatible with ar71xx routers
Just got my dell venue 8 pro today. found out wifi disconnected in couple minutes.
I did lots of search and find this:
they said it’s due to 2 windows update (KB2903939 and KB2887595), however, I did not install those updates, my wifi still disconnected after few minutes.
tried install thosed updates and other settings, none of them works.
finally, I tried a differnet router, bing ! wifi connected and will not disconnect anymore. even with KB2903939 and KB2887595 installed.
the funny things is, the incompatible router was a ar71xx based router running Openwrt on it( this wifi chip on venue is DW1538 WiFi/BT, which made by Qualcomm Atheros), which is also make by Qualcomm Atheros. The one working is a BCM based router running tomato on it.
