Long story short, I messed up the /etc/config/wireless file and now the USB light on the router blinks very rapidly and the iwconfig command spits out:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth1 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn Mode:Master Frequency:2.462 GHz Tx-Power=18 dBm

RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Power Management:on

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan4 IEEE 802.11bgn Mode:Master Frequency:2.462 GHz Tx-Power=20 dBm

RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Power Management:off

mon.wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn Mode:Monitor Frequency:2.462 GHz Tx-Power=18 dBm

RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Power Management:on

br-lan no wireless extensions.

mon.wlan4 IEEE 802.11bgn Mode:Monitor Frequency:2.462 GHz Tx-Power=20 dBm

RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Power Management:off

I definitely screwed something up, help would be greatly appreciated and possibly an output of someone's working /etc/config/wireless file?

Thanks!

Does your WLAN0 interface show up, when doing an ifconfig?

well i fixed my issue once again, just restored the wifi config file but running "wifi down" "wifi detect > /etc/config/wireless" "wifi up" about 3-4 times and removed the networkmanager module. I have no idea why my problems started from messing networkmanager, I tried to revert the changes done but that didn't work until i manually fixed it through ssh with the command above.

Thanks for your help tho guys, i greatly appreciate it. I'll definitely try the reset button next button, it'll probably save me another hour of chasing my tail.
