I want to enable wireless on my openwrt but it doesn't work. Besides, the wireless could be enabled through iw phy phy0 add interfacecommand manually.

So, it seems there's something wrong in my kernel settings, but I don't know where it is.

hostapd: Driver does not support configured VHT capability [VHT_CAP_SHORT_GI_80]

Apparently your hostapd.conf includes something like

vht_capab=[SHORT-GI-80]

but this WiFi card seems to be unable to support that. Remove the [SHORT-GI-80] element from the vht_capab= line, and try again.
