Wifi doesn't respond
#1
I have troubles with wifi which looks like hardware problem. I have PinePhone Brave Heart edition.

I have tried to run different operating systems, but

- 20220119-0503-postmarketOS-v21.12-phosh-13-pine64-pinephone.img.xz
- mobian-pinephone-phosh-20210517.img.gz
- Manjaro-ARM-phosh-pinephone-beta20.img.xz

In attachment is output of dmesg from postmarketos.

And of course I checked hardware dip switch on the back side of pinephone (and tried to turn it off and on again).

I tried to reload module, but it didn't helped:
Code:
rmmod 8723cs
modprobe 8723cs

Where can I find more debug information? 

I can possibly try to check voltage on some pins of the chip, but some guidance would be helpful and I am keeping that as last option.

I can see at https://images.mobian-project.org/pinephone/ only this version or weekly builds.

Is that version unstable? I just wanted to try if wifi does work in other distros. I can try also weekly build of mobian if it helps. What logs should I attach?

Have you tried the multi-distro SD card image?

Jan 16  release "should" work just fine,  I have this on my daily use Pine phone and my keyboard phone, both are PMOS Convergent phones.

I have done all the nightly updates as well,  ---> but you could hold back the updates if you are worried about breakage.

I just download the image and flash it to the sd card,  ---> I have not  'attached'  any Logs/files to the sd card(s)

I have NEVER had any wifi problems using Mobian ever,   --> even when it was still called Debian the wifi worked.

Then it should work with mobian, but it doesn't

Will that change something?

I have made yet another test with factory image. See attached picture.

The multi-distro is quite "Cool"

But it does have a custom boot loader,    ==> so it WILL NOT show you how well a particular OS will boot on its own.

It  WILL  show you some of the characteristics of those operating systems.

@jmlich 
My Brave Heart is semi-retired,  not enough sim cards for all my Pine phones. 

  "The Android test image cannot run your wifi",  ===> that "could be"  a shortcoming of that OS ?  I have not tried that one.
    ( Is that Android test image for the original Pine phones ?)  ===> (maybe try the original Post Market test image ?)

My Brave Heart came with a custom Test OS from the people at Post Market.  ==> (That also installed some of the firmware ! )

Currently  my daily use Pine Convergent phone,  and my Keyboard testing Convergent phone are both operating fairly well
on the Mobian weekly release with all the current updates.  (Not perfect - still improving)

<<< make sure you do not attempt to use the  Explorer Edition Pro phone release of Bookworm,  -- the PRO has a different main board>>>

There are 2 different branches of Mobian now,  one for the original Pine phones  --- and one for the new PRO phones....
