Unable to load driver module for realtek driver

Postby EmbeddedGuy » Thu Aug 18, 2016 8:50 am

I have two identical Raspberry Pi 2 setups running 4.1.16-1-ARCH. One of them are failing to connect to WiFi and i have tried to replace its WiFi dongle without any luck. It feels like the module is somehow broken? It worked 5 days ago and nothing has been changed on the system, except being powered down meanwhile.
Nevertheless here are some debugging logs. I am considering a reinstall, but this will take me many hours. So i was hoping it was something i could simply fix.

I tried to reinstall the module and installed the latest version, still the same problem. Could it be corrupted mbr etc?
