Wifi device doesn't list networks (ralinkwifi driver, chipset rt5390, hp pavilion laptop)
|Reported by:||MrPingouin||Owned by:||nobody|
I'm attempting to make Wifi working on my HP Pavilion dv6 laptop (ralink rt5390 chipset).
I'm currently on NightlyBuild hrev48413. If I don't take the precaution to blacklist the ralinkwifi driver at boot, my system freeze on "loading icons" screen and I can't manage to open the KDL.
What I tried is to download a newer firmware (well, I think) : rt2870.bin, and copied it to /system/non-packaged/data/firmware/ralinkwifi/ , and blacklisted all the firmwares in /system/data/firmware/ralinkwifi at boot.
As a result : the system booted without freezing, and I was even able to see the wifi card in the Network Preferences !
When I press the toggle wifi key on the laptop keyboard, there's a reaction on the syslog, so I guess this part is working.
KERN: usb hub 41: port 4: device removed KERN: usb hub 41: port 4: new device connected
Unfortunately, the card wasn't able to detect any networks. At the same time, the syslog is flooded by those messages, I don't know what it means.
KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 15 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 15 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 15 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 15 KERN: wlan_control: 9235, 76
Note : I copied a downloaded version of rt2860.bin into /system/non-packaged/data/firmware/ralinkwifi, and blacklisted all the firmwares in /system/data/firmware/ralinkwifi, and tried to boot. The system froze at loading screen as before all those operations.
To quote umccullough on irc : "I would create a ticket requesting the driver + firmware be updated to match whatever freebsd is currently using"
