Motodev Razr page state that only bgn wifi is supported.. this is very confusing.. because My Razr support 5Ghz wlan out of the box..

I started a thread asking for the hardware difference between Razr version.. Link
Since nobody reply, I'm still not sure what is the diff between them..

for sure Razr uses the Ti WiLink7 chip.. that suppose to support Dual band WiFi+BT 4.0+FM+GPS..
If all of these device is using the same chip, then the diff might be the wifi firmware..

On my Razr, using fw_wlan1281.bin(Rev 7.1.3.410.5418) from xt912 disable the 5Ghz band.
Update : It turns out that the xt912 tiwlan.ini that disable the 5Ghz band.
So I think maybe by using my Razr wifi firmware & configuration, the 5Ghz band might be enable on your device.. I'm not sure
Update : Working on some Razr

Attached is the wifi firmware (Rev 7.1.3.410.5419) & configuration for dualband wifi
p/s :
This file is extracted from motorola RAZR Global sourceforge.net page.. Link
the fw_wlan1281.bin is a few kByte diff from the one used in xt912.
you might need to tweak tiwlan.ini to suite your country wifi regulatory

How to Install
1. Remount your system folder as rw
2. Backup old files (you might need it for OTA)
Code:
mv /system/etc/wifi/fw_wlan1281.bin /system/etc/wifi/fw_wlan1281.bin.bgn
mv /system/etc/wifi/tiwlan.ini /system/etc/wifi/tiwlan.ini.bgn
3. Unzip 802.11.abgn_support.zip & sent it to device
Code:
adb push fw_wlan1281.bin /system/etc/wifi/fw_wlan1281.bin
adb push tiwlan_dualband.ini /system/etc/wifi/tiwlan.ini
4. Turn Off then On back your Wifi

How to check firmware version
In a command prompt & as a root user, enter
Code:
wlan_cu
then
Code:
aboUt
You should see something like this
Code:
root@cdma_spyder:/system/etc/wifi# wlan_cu
wlan_cu
ERROR - IpcWpa_Sockets_Open - can't connect the socket

Thanks for that. It is working for me on CM9 with 2.3.5 Retail.BR kernel. Using the DLink DGL-4500 on 5ghz and it shows the network and connects. Make sure you rename the file to "tiwilan.ini" or else your device will fail to boot and will get stuck at bootlogo.

dot11NetworkType = 4 #2 - A only mode, 3 - B/G mode, 4 - A/G Dual mode

set this one in ini to 2, phone reboots when i'm trying to turn on WiFi... it means this isn't working i think.

p.s. i'm on 651.167.19.XT910.Retail.en.EU everything stock, just rooted.

I just unzipped and dropped it manually using Root Explorer instead of using ADB which is why I was wondering why it wouldn't boot. Then I noticed the different filenames and I was like ohhh stupid mistake. :P
