Hum...all this seems to rule-out board design/manufacturing rather quickly, no?

Anyhow, let's praise a SW fix to the rescue: thanks for all the hard work!

@mrengman,
With new stable kernel 4.9.80-1098, may you release your driver suite?
Thanks!

@fgimenez is your dongle connected directly to Pi, or through a USB hub? Sometimes hubs may introduce issues. Make sure Pi has sufficient power too.

Re: Wireless firmware testers wanted

Thanks for the quick response.
What is "new" referring to now (which file version number, apt package version, commit# on github repo,...)?

So, which apt package (& version) shall I take if I build my own distribution, either on 4.9 or 4.14?

Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 4.xx.xx+

Dear MrEngman,

It seems there might be an issue with mt7610 driver somewhere in between kernel 4.9.59 (working) and 4.9.65 (failing) as per this.
Is there a known issue with this driver on recent kernels, or would you have any suggestion?
Thanks.

When did this URL & directories layout change happen?

I have some build scripts pulling all drivers in their original location, so...bad luck: I'll adapt them accordingly, thanks for the note.
Could you update first post accordingly?

Thanks again for all the heavy-lifting.

Linked github was just for illustration purpose actually: noted it is not anymore a reference.

Nonetheless, is Foundation's firmware-brcm80211 apt package confirmed to be the one then, or will it be discarded too?

Well, like with any software, particular setup may have issues with the driver: one may detect a bug, report here, and needs to restore operations...
