erhtun:

Device : MikroTik RouterBOARD hAP ac² (RBD52G-5HacD2HnD-TC)
Software: OpenWrt 21.02
**Steps to reproduce **
I have been boot with initramfs image v21.02.0-rc3 (r16172-2aba3e9784). Everything is good except wireless performance. When I connect 5GHz wireless with my Iphone and Macbook Pro, RSSI is too low even at near the rooter. When I walk away the rooter connection is lost. Also When I want to connect 2GHz, connection is lost immediately.

notr1ch:

I am also having this issue with a fresh 21.02 booted from initramfs, hAP AC2 purchased in May 2020. Looks like an issue with the calibration data? Scanning for my home network, I can't even pick up the 2.4 GHz from 5 meters away and the 5 GHz shows at -105dBm (usually -45dBm at this location on a cellphone). Wireless on both frequencies works fine when booted back to RouterOS.

root@OpenWrt:/sys/firmware/mikrotik/hard_config/wlan_data# ls -al

-r-------- 1 root root 0 Aug 31 22:20 data_2

I have dumped a few hopefully useful files.

EDIT: I see 41b8671 was included in 21.02 so it seems new format caldata should already be supported, so I am not sure what's going on here.

For OP and anyone else following, there's been some discussion and a hopeful fix over on the OpenWRT Github: #3037 (comment)
