Wifi not working on RPI3

Postby niconex » Fri May 26, 2017 6:57 pm

Hello,
I've rencently installed Archlinux on my raspberry pi 3 but when i enter "ifconfig" there's no wlan0 showing, I've also tried to "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" but i get "wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device".
I've tried following all the guides found online but with no luck, can anyone help me?

Hey,

I have the same problem. I've installed the latest ArchlinuxARM-rpi-3-latest.tar.gz (03-June-2017) . Apparently there are some firmware files missing.

I found this thread from March 2016 https://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=9938. I'm curious as to why this is still an issue. Can anyone explain?

Ive just loaded the latest arch image on one of my Pi3's and have the same problem. Currently wifi works using a USB dongle but not the onboard wifi.

EDIT:

Just reposting here in case someone else finds this thread. The current RPi3 image is using the 64bit kernel, as yet there is no driver available for the on board Wifi or Bluetooth using this kenel. The driver is provided by Broadcom and currently they haven't released it. In the mean time the RPi2 image can be used as that is still using the 32bit kernel.

Hello,

Actually I found a driver module from openwrt which works very well on aarch64.

Just enable netctl service and use wifi-menu to setup a connection. Not sure if you need to bing the link down for wlan0 first.
