Orange Pi PC new kernel (current) buster 20.11.6 wifi dongle problems


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Yesterday I've upgraded armbian kernel from 20.11.3 to 20.11.6 version in the available updates with apt update.  Once PiPC restarted no wifi connection was found. The wifi dongle is a TP-LINK TL-WN725N and is found with lsusb: Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter

 

It was working with previous kernels but with 20.11.6 kernel is not listed in ifconfig so I've rolled back to 20.11.3 kernel

 

Any hints or solucions ??

 

Thanks

Driver doesn't build on 5.10.y so it was disabled https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/c7cc1825cd9f69bebfdbe230543374da75cef566#diff-dd3456456bdbe6cb4602ef040892600f4bebca8fb5d02ee42adc8013ceca98fc

 

You are welcome to check and fix. I have no plans to waste an afternoon on this anytime soon.

It is a pity that I do not have an unused other adapter.

I have experienced a similar problem with the Realtek Semiconductor Corp RTL8188etv wireless LAN 802.11 network adapter.  

An SD card image using Armbian_20.08_1_Orangepipc_buster_current_5.8.5.img.xz detected the dongle.

An SD card image using Armbian _20.11.6_Orangepipc_buster_current_5.10.4.img.xz was not recognized as a wireless adapter, although it did show up in the usp devices with lsusb.

 

I am using an Orange Pi PC.

Solution is still the same. Someone has to enable it back, build kernel(s), fix possible problems and submit a patch. We are full for months ahead.
