      Error Description:

      Unable set ESSID.

       

      root@WR-IDP-3B8D:~# iwconfig wlan0 essid adlink

      Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :

        SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.

       

      Solution:

      MI3.1 default set wlan0 to ap mode. Set wlan0 to station mode,  then you should be able to set ESSID.

      Edit the file - /etc/config/wireless and replace the following line-

      'option mode     ap'

      with

      'option mode     sta'
