Orange pi Zero WiFi 819 not works

Post by sergey1955 »

The built-in WiFi module in Orange pi Zero does not work.
With an external 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card (MediaTek, Inc. RT2870) the module works.
How to solve this problem?

Created the daemon file /etc/systemd/system/xradio_wlan.service

Code:

Systemctl enable xradio_wlan.service

Systemctl daemon-reload

Reboot


........


dmesg | Grep xradio

[12.662315] xradio wlan power on
[13.167005] [XRADIO_ERR] xradio_load_firmware: can not read config register, err = -110.
[13.167045] [XRADIO_ERR] xradio_load_firmware failed (-110).
[13.503539] xradio wlan power off



On other images, XR819 works (there are two orange pirou modules, the "debian_server_For_OrangePizero_v0_9_2.img" image).

In these images there are files XR819*.bin.

And in the image "DietPi_OrangePiZero-armv7- (Jessie) .7z" the XR819 files are missing.

How this system can work with a chip, if there is no mention anywhere?

What am I doing wrong?
