BPI-M2 Zero with Armbian 24.8.0 jammy lost wifi

Hello all

I’ve just got a problem with a M2 Zero that was working for several weeks. I had it configured with wireless and wired network with no problems. It contains basically octoprint software to control my 3D printer. Today I did some update and upgrade and I’ve lost wireless device. I can only connect using the wired eth and when I try to consult wireless status I get this error:

    root@bananapim2zero:/etc/modprobe.d# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    enx00e04c3609cc  no wireless extensions.

If I search for wlan* devices I cant find any on /dev

root@bananapim2zero:/etc/modprobe.d# ls /dev

some ideas?

Not sure if I can explain how to reproduce this issue because I was trying to make it work an e-ink screen and did several changes too using armbian-config until on a reboot I end on this problem.

Got it. We limit support on stock images - that is already hard enough to secure. Check if you somehow uninstall armbian-firmware …
