Thanks...I managed to get something similar working
(open authentication in my case).

I also had to update the regulatory.bin, which enabled

But, when using ath10k as AP, with both my firmware and the official
10.1.467 firmware, my stations (always ath10k with my hacked firmware) can associate
but do not receive any DHCP responses.

When I use my ath10k stations against a Netgear AC AP, then they
associate and get DHCP and pass traffic to each other...  The reported
rx encoding rate is never reaches much above 200Mbps, though..seems like
it would train up higher.

My ath10k stations also work fine against an ath9k /n AP.

Hard to know what to blame though...
