[SOLVED]Raspberry Pi 3 Wireless isn't working

Postby meijin007 » Fri Mar 04, 2016 8:07 am

Hi all.
I just got this nice thing here, but I can't make the wireless / Bluetooth to work, even after 030316 firmware update.
any ideas?

Sorry, not much help but the same problem here. However, it's early days yet, so I expect various things to be broken.

Further investigation came up with this: All the modules and staff didn't make it to the master branch of the firmware yet, but only to the "next" branch of the firmware. Is there any way to install this on the rpi3?

I would also appreciate help with this. I attempted to install the brcm43430 firmware in /lib/firmware/brcm but this did not fix anything. Also loading brcmfmac and brcmutil via modprobe did not address the problem.

If the ArchLinux ARM team needs a hand in making this work, I'm willing to volunteer.

Hi,

I also haven't been able to get the Raspberry Pi 3's wireless networking working either. I've also not had any luck with its bluetooth adapter either. Has anyone managed to get that working also?

Cheers,

Neil.

On archlinux raspberry pi 3 it is not working for me either, but on ubuntu-mate it works out of the box. The chip ubuntu uses is
cfg80211. In lsmod they list for wireless:

brcmfmac 0
brcmutil 1 brcmfmac
cfg80211 1 brcmfmac
rfkill 3 cfg80211

I am not that technica,l so I don't know how to set it up on arch. The only thing i succeeded with was to modprobe brcmfmac and cfg80211, but the rfkill did not get probed.

Hope this can be of any use.

I got it working like so:
Build an image from RPi2 latest, flashed that to SD, boot up the pi.
Update the system
Code: Select all
pacman -Syu

This pulled in new firmware, but still not new enough, so I used rpi-update to get the current master.
Then downloaded the missing firmware file to /lib/firmware/brcm/:
Code: Select all
cd /lib/firmware/brcm/
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt


dmesg => http://paste.bubblesort.me/?69094abae61 ... VQ4vKQyKQ=
iw list => http://paste.bubblesort.me/?55b184cbf47 ... boF7Xg+/E=

Hope that helps. I guess it is just a matter of time until we can pull it in via pacman -Syu

Sorry, I linked the wrong files.
Code: Select all
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt


Also what does your dmesg output say?

Tried to download the new files, still no luck here :(
dmesg http://paste.bubblesort.me/?e3eca62ccb9 ... 0x2nAAnqg= (I have anther wifi adapter for now, as you can see)
do I have to use rpi-update?

Edit: After using rpi-update it's working...Thanks!
Edit 2: Any ideas for bluetooth?
