for wifi make sure you have all files (wmt-files, firmware and WMT_SOC.cfg) installed (i don’t know if i have included them in my image) to the right directories (like in the zip-file).

wifi.sh, dnsmasq- and hostapd-config has to be configured to your need (ip-config). dont enable bridge in hostapd/interfaces for ap0

I have do all for the wifi and it’s good. I have reboot with wifi.sh :

wget http://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=bpi-r2:wifi.sh
mv fetch.php\?media\=bpi-r2\:wifi.sh /etc/init.d/wifi.sh    
ln -s /etc/init.d/wifi.sh /etc/rc2.d/S02wifi
ln -s /etc/init.d/wifi.sh /etc/rc3.d/S02wifi
ln -s /etc/init.d/wifi.sh /etc/rc4.d/S02wifi
ln -s /etc/init.d/wifi.sh /etc/rc5.d/S02wifi

Ity’s easy. But use systemtcl it not easy for me.

Do not create symlinks in init.d

First start wifi.sh manually then we make a step further…

Btw last version of wifi.sh is on github

I think that’s I have a problem with ap0.

  1. I have do all for hostapd => I can’t see the new wifi network
  2. I have stopped hostapd, install wpasupplicant and wifi-radar : ap0 can’t interface scanning
  3. “iwconfig” says “ap0 no wireless extensions.”

(Frank W.) #85

Only hostapd,no wpa-supplicant…there is a known issue with it…wpasupplicant have to be deinstalled

And again…without logs (complete init) and your config (at least hostapd) we cannot help you


(Troumad) #86

I have first try hostapd without wpasupplicant. I have not see my WiFi. After I have installed wpasupplicant and WiFi-radar for try the WiFi.


(Frank W.) #87

seems like you have not read my wiki about wifi: https://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:bpi-r2:wlan

 wpasupplicant must be removed and hostapd+dnsmasq installed: 

and for keyboard…you only have to install console-setup and you will be asked about keyboard-config, no reboot is needed…tested it with german layout…but it also install kbd-package too


(Troumad) #88

I have first remove wpasupplicant and try hostapd. But I have not seem my wifi network. After I have try to install now wpasupplicant for try wifi-radar.

I see armbian. There is writen :

Known problems:

HDMI is not working and will probably never,
onboard wireless is too fragile, disabled by default.

and :

 # very unstable wifi driver, disabled by default http://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:bpi-r2:wlan#internal
 # chroot $SDCARD /bin/bash -c "systemctl --no-reload enable mt7623-wifi.service >/dev/null 2>&1"

Have you the link ? www.fw-web.de/ :wink:


(Frank W.) #89

I don’t know how far wifi-driver is integrated in armbian…all i know is on above page…wifi works on my 4.19 kernel with same steps as on 4.14

I think that’s I have use the full package. I may have forgotten something, but I do not know what it can be.

I forgot what I could forget.


(Frank W.) #92

My wiki renames to lowercase…will remove the link…you will have no problem if using the full package


(Troumad) #93

I think I use the full package. I may have forgotten something, but I do not know what it can be.
