I have installed dd-wrt revision r25279 on my router TP-Link TL-WR841N(D) 8.x.
I want to enable functionality that turns off WLAN in the night and later turns on WLAN automatically.
I understood that defining Cron-Job is the way to go.
In order to verify what command works I connect to the console via SSH first and execute the following:
|ifconfig ath0 down
iwconfig atho0 txpower 0
|ifconfig ath0 up
iwconfig atho0 txpower 20
Then I verify with a WLAN client tool (installed on my smartphone) if this is working or not.
The issue I have identified is that after turning off WLAN I cannot turn it on again. This means the WLAN client tool does not detect the WLAN although the status is confirmed to be on in WebUI - Status - WLAN.
In order to enable WLAN again I have to apply the setting in WebUI - Setup - WLAN.
What is the required command to turn on WLAN?
