So I am trying to get my BPI R2-pro working with an MT7615 module by BPI running Armbian 23.02.2 kernel 6.1.11. The network interface shows up in
ip a and the likes and the
mt7615e kernel module gets loaded fine and I can even get the scan of nearby access points by using
iwlist wlan0 scan, however I cannot bring the interface up using
ifconfig and trying to connect to an access point using
nmcli just gives an error:
Error: No network with SSID 'XXXX' found.
iwconfig wlan0 up just fails silently.
dmesg has to say about the adapter:
[ 15.164453] mt7615e 0002:01:00.0: Invalid MAC address, using random address 8a:85:12:a2:65:fc [ 15.199920] mt7615e 0002:01:00.0: HW/SW Version: 0x8a108a10, Build Time: 20180518100604a [ 15.213567] mt7615e 0002:01:00.0: N9 Firmware Version: _reserved_, Build Time: 20200814163649 [ 15.219969] mt7615e 0002:01:00.0: CR4 Firmware Version: _reserved_, Build Time: 20181207140436
I am kind of lost at this point and would really appreciate if someone could help me with this one. Thank you.
