WiFi stopped working, suggestions?
#2
If you can't pick it up in any of the logs (even as an unknown device), then it means you can't talk to it.

If that is the case, it indicates:

1. Something came unplugged -- It should just be a quick visual check.

2. The WiFi chip is not getting power -- Which is something you should be able to test for by checking the power supply. It could be that either it's not getting a DC rail or there is a loose ground somewhere (including the battery and DC barrel jack). Try testing the PineTab on and off power to see if there is a difference.

3. The WiFi chip is blown -- There's not much you can do about this. I would suggest grabbing a USB WiFi dongle, shouldn't set you back too much.

Will be interesting to see the root cause on this anyway, so please post back in any case. As I understand it, Pine are still yet to get the next batch processed, so now is the time to discover any potential issues in the design.
