Someone said they solved their issue of no WiFi option by going to
My OSMC --> Pi Config -> Hardware -> Origin
When I go to pi config i have the following options : Display, GPU Mem &codec, hardware support and config editor. There is no option for origin under any of these…
Here are my logs
I also have no Bluetooth
Has it ever worked?
Please install and then run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hwinfo
hwinfo | paste-log
and post the URL
WiFi used to work fine. Bluetooth never had but i read it isn’t ready out of the box and i haven’t taken the time to figure out how to set it up
hwinfo isn’t able to detect either the WiFi or Bluetooth interfaces – at all.
You don’t mention if this problem occurred after OSMC upgraded to the 4.19 kernl but I’m inclined to think that it’ could be a hardware problem.
You could first install
rfkill and then run
If an installation of Raspbian Lite also fails, then that would confirm a hardware problem.
Someone mentioned that they simply changed their localization in pi config and it fixed the issue…but i can’t find any localization settings anywhere
No – you may need to change things if you’re in Germany, but you’d still see the WiFi option
You might have seen this on a Raspbian forum but AFAICT the problem is either with the hardware or perhaps it’s picking up the incorrect firmware
You should be able to change localization by running
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
I installed rfkill, but when I try rfkill list even with sudo it says Can’t open RFKILL control device: No such file or directory
Trying rfkill was just a quick test.
Your next step should be to see if the same problem occurs on Raspbian Lite.
Is there a difference between raspbian and raspbian light? I tried raspbian and same thing. I just don’t understand how it would just suddenly stop working one day if it was a hardware issue
The other options come with a desktop environment and are larger.
Could you remove these lines from your config.txt, reboot, and see if that makes a difference.
It still looks like it might be a hardware issue. I found quite a few threads where people have experienced a loss of WiFi and Bluetooth on Pi3Bs.
I’d wager that it’s a hardware issue unfortunately.
