How do I enable Wifi in OSMC on Raspberry Pi 3? I have tried both using the installer and via OSMC itself. However, nothing works! after I go to the connection settings within OSMC I on see those for Ethernet and there is no option for Wifi. How can I solve this?
This is a strange one. It’s clearly a Pi 3 but OSMC isn’t seeing either WiFi or Bluetooth.
I see that you have a wired connection, so could you run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lshw
then run sudo lshw and post the output of the network details near the bottom.
I also suggest you remove all external devices, eg DTV dongle, and reboot the system to see if that clears things up.
I did notice one troubling error in the log file:
Nov 28 22:53:54 osmc-mainroom kernel: mmc-bcm2835 3f300000.mmc: no support for card's volts
Nov 28 22:53:54 osmc-mainroom kernel: mmc1: error -22 whilst initialising SDIO card
Nov 28 22:53:54 osmc-mainroom kernel: mmc1: Controller never released inhibit bit(s).
The voltage part could suggest some kind of overclocking problem but /boot/config.txt doesn’t show anything. Alternatively, it might be a bad power supply, hardware issue with the Pi or perhaps even a flakey card. Perhaps @sam_nazarko can provide a few hints.
Ah ok! I have the same problem on my Raspberry Pis normally (running Raspbian) although, I managed to get the Wifi working before I did a reinstall and it stopped again. Will see if I can’t track the method I used to successfully enable the wifi on the Pi 3 again. If it works for OSMC will post it here.
Back in post #5 I suggested that you remove all external add-ons but the log you posted still shows the DVB-T dongle attached. Clearly, this device will create an additional power load, which is why I suggested it be removed.
