Banana M2Plus wifi and bluetooth under Armbian 20.08.7 Bionic with Linux 5.8.13-sunxi


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I searched for an answer but couldn't find a working one. Most answers from 2017 and it's not possible to answer there.

Could someone please explain how to use the wifi and bluetooth module on Armbian 20.08.7 Bionic with Linux 5.8.13-sunxi (minimal without desktop)?

With armbian-config there is no chance to find any wifi or bluetooth device. I didn't configure wifi or bluetooth unter /etc/network/interfaces, but I need a static IPv4 adress on eth0.

@Igor: Hey Igor, I read you wanted to implement the bluetooth and wifi directly into the armbian-images for supported M2plus. How did this go on and what is the actual state at the moment? I use the newest image with kernel 5.8.x Armbian 20.08.13, but there is still no wifi or bluetooth found within armbian-config tool.
