Set-up the wifi module
#1
Question 
Hi,

I recently received my Pine64 and successfully installed an Ubuntu image (longsleep xenial-pine64-bspkernel-20160403).
I can connect to Internet using the Ethernet connection.


How can I install the official Bluetooth/WiFi module?

Thanks for your help.

I was not able to figure this out with that specific image, so i installed another that i found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwrRh39...lWUW8/view

It was as easy as filling out the SSID, password, and security type for wifi access.

I installed the ubuntu-mate desktop and wireless and bluetooth were available  for gui configuration.  The module was in place before I ran the script to install mate, not sure if that makes a difference or not.

It looks like bt is recognized out of the box (rfkill list ...  You need to install it )

I am still trying to figure out the wifi. Could someone with a working wifi  post the result of the command

     lsmod

Please,
TIA

Hello François, the wifi module works just fine out of the box but not the bluetooth module because the drivers are not supportés by the kernel ( longsleep Said so )

Hi,

I am having the same issue in enabling WiFi out of the box. I have been playing with wpa_supplicant settings and have still not gotten it to work. Can anyone provide details on how to setup WiFi via the cli? I have Googled and have not had success thus far. I will keep experimenting.

Okay, running Mate desktop seemed to work. A reboot was required to get everything going.

Just a quick update, the instructions in the post below detail how to setup the Pine64 native WiFi board. This does not require the installation of Mate desktop.
