```

- no wlan0 interface

```

root@arm-64:~# nmcli device show | grep -i general.device

```

- I see ssv* files in firmware folder

 

```

root@arm-64:/boot/extlinux# ls -l /lib/firmware/ssv*
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 81176 Nov 20 19:21 /lib/firmware/ssv6051-sw.bin

-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root  3373 Nov 20 19:21 /usr/lib/firmware/ssv6x5x-wifi.cfg

```

 

- I created this file ssv6051.conf

 

```

root@arm-64:/etc/modprobe.d# cat ssv6051.conf
options ssv6051 stacfgpath=/lib/firmware/ssv6051-wifi.cfg

```

 

At this time I do not see any wlan0 interface and thus WIFI is NOT available.

 

Kindly assist and guide me.

 

Regards

Hannah

no way to get ssv6051 wifi on mainline kernel, not until someone writes a proper driver for it.

ssv6051 driver exists on rockchip 4.4 kernel, but it is so poorly written that nobody never cared to rewrite it.

That's a bit of a pity, because that wifi chip and its bigger brother (the ssv6256p) have quite reasonable performance.
