Hi Jurgen.

There is a patch which may fix some stuff related with 802.11s, but it
is not applied automatically. Please, make sure you are using the last
lime-sdk (execute git pull).

You have to manually execute a script snippet like this:

bash snippets/patch_sdk_mac80211.sh

Then recompile the packages:

./cooker -b ramips/mt7620

And finally cook the firmware

./cooker -c ramips/mt7620 --flavor=lime_default --profile=zbt-ape522ii

Recently I added a way to enable 11s by default (instead of adhoc) in
the firmware, you have to use a community profile like this:

./cooker -c ramips/mt7620 --flavor=lime_default --profile=zbt-ape522ii

** the communities profiles are listed here:

** read the README.md of lime-sdk to understand what a community profile is.

You can also download precompiled binaries with the patch and 11s
enabled from here:


Please, let us know if it works for you. I don't have this hardware and
I cannot test by myself.
