Can not get board to boot up reliably
#18
Hi pkfpeters,

" Do you mean by "official" wifi 802.11bgn module, the add on wifi/bt board you can order in the online Pine shop?"
> Yes

"I also tested with this board and it should work fine. Have you tried ifconfig -a
or iwconfig ? You should see a wlan0, wlan1 or something similar"
> I can see booth wlan0 and wlan1

"If your access point is providing IP addresses (DHCP based) use the following command to aquire a valid IP address  dhclient -i wlan0   <<-- replace wlan0 with your device name."
> Access point do not provide IP address

"You boot log indicates abnormal boot times indeed. I am currently up and running from power on to login prompt in 28seconds."
> I cut  and  paste Boot log  to answer, but it was third (if I remember correct) booting loop round.

Today's experiments

I make fresh start and flash Samsung 32GB EVO (Etcher Pine version)
pine64-image-debianmate-310102bsp-2.img
Booting was OK, but no network (Eth0 or Wlan)

debian@pine64:~$ sudo ifconfig -a

Several times reboot but no IPaddress (with or without wifi card)

So I can not install yours patc, because first instruction is
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
and after that yours patch.
chiken -egg problem :-)

Next time when trying Debian I install first yours patch and after that update and upgrade.
But before that playing with Ubuntu.
Result is:

Ubuntu Base Image build 20161218-1 7.7GB Pine64 V2.0.0-beta2 (Etcher Pine version)
Boot problem two times (stay in booting loop. Only solutions is power off -> on).
Third boot trying -> OK

ubuntu@pine64:~$ ifconfig -a

So no Wlan but Eth0 working and booting is reliable after patch

*****

And again I tried Android 7.1 version because SD card was ready and it is not bad idea check out wifi module health.

This time HDMI is in use. Debian and Ubuntu tryed Putty serial connection.
Booting, eth0 and wlan was OK
Android working OK. Reliable booting, wlan and lan.

Is this booting problem relatetd to Pine64 PCB version?
My version is A64-DB-2G-Rev B 2016-03-21
