I have tried setting up my wifi network (both by terminal and by gui) and it appears to connect but there is not actual connection (it says status: not connected)
It’s a problem with the RC version because with the alpha 4 works perfectly.
When trying to set up by terminal I get this error when typing the ‘connect …’ sentence:
“method connect with signature “” on interface “net.conman.Service” doesn’t exist”
I have the internet connection issue with this model as well. It shows “Connected” in My OSMC but when I am streaming I got “playback failed”, switching to wired connection and it works! Do I need to update the driver and how?
Same here. I’m using PiHut wifi adapter on RPI-B
Did new install with Alpha4 about a month ago. Wifi worked first time and has been
working perfect ever since.
Then I did new install last night with RC, and wifi doesn’t come up.
The install went fine, and I didn’t see any errors. OSMC starts up fine, and seems to be ok.
Although, I can’t connect to it, to check
I tried complete RC install from scratch twice in case I had put in wrong wireless settings.
But everything was identical. Wifi works perfect with Alpha4, but not at all with RC.
I didn’t try moving closer to my router. Its already pretty close (around 4 meters way in direct line-of-sight)
I will try plugging in ethernet cable, and see if I can connect to it.
If I can do that, and get the wireless going, I’ll be happy.
Otherwise, I would need to go back to Alpha-4, because it’s not much use without wifi.
ps maybe RC is missing driver for this wifi adaptor (but A4 must have had it)
For me (Pi2 & Dlink DWA-121 802.11n Wireless N 150 Pico Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]) it just drops every now and then (it almost never works for more than an 1 hour). Sometimes is comes back without resetting it.
I’m guessing it has something to do with the signal strenght, which seems a lot much weaker than it was on the alpha 4.
As i explained in other posts, i noticed a small improvement as i get the Pi closer to the wifi router, not stable enough, but a little better. Both the Pi and the wifi router are in the same room, with nothing between them, at approximately 4 meters from each others.
If any logs or tests are required by the dev team, i’ll be glad to help.
Ahah, i guess i’m a little hasty=)
It was working really fine this morning, i could play a remote file with a high bitrate, which didn’t played well before… but i guess it’s sporadic, because it just lost wifi as i tried to access it through ssh (wich is strange, because i pinged it for 1 hour, and i had only 5% loss, and the second i initiate a ssh connection, it loses wifi).
