TP-Link TL-WR741ND Wi-Fi client mode

I spent some time trying to make the wifi router run as a client, but to no avail. The only thing I saw in dmesg ifter enabling wifi was
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

It seems there's a number of people with similar problem.

Finally I located the fault in the device's default configuration:

config wifi-device  radio0
        option type     mac80211
#       option channel  11
        option hwmode   11ng


There seems to be a problem with the 802.11n mode, after changing the setting to just '11g' the client mode works as a charm.
