Hey Anthony! Which firmware are you using?

On 11.03.110, you could try to release the Backport driver:

On Wifi: did you also tried the Unuse of the Backport drivers: System,Registry,Network,drivers.use_backport_driver to False ?

its just 10.06.170 firmware, guess that firmware dont have that setting

any ideas for the older firmware?

Could you upgrade to 11.03.110?

still didn’t work. Weird stuff its got like a mix of bluetooth and wireless in one

Which is the exact Brand/Model/Rev. Nr. of the Wifi Chipset?

Edimax EW-7611UCB

we are going into full lockdown tommrrow over in New Zealand and someone purchased 40 of these without testing. so was hoping i may be able to help getting it working.

I can try to but have to leave for bedtime now…

A few thoughts:

On 11.03.110, please test the standard driver, then unusing the Backport driver like described Registry Keys above.

On 11.03.110 or 10.06 try to download the driver for Linux

and try to load the driver by hand

Many thanks

Btw. I’m seeing a lot of RTL Drivers already builtin (what I expected tbh.): You could check then if your chipset is covered

Stay safe and healthy
