After a BIOS upgrade of my apu2 my WIFI stopped working.
My wireless devices couldn't find the network anymore.
It looked like there was no SSID broadcast anymore.
IPFire on apu2c4 with miniPCI express WIFI module WLE200NX
What have I done:
IPFire 2.21 Core 120 with apu2c4 BIOS v4.6.9
--> WIFI was working fine
Upgrade of BIOS to newest version
IPFire 2.21 Core 120 with apu2c4 BIOS v188.8.131.52
--> WIFI was broken
Fresh install of IPFire
IPFire 2.21 Core 128 with apu2c4 BIOS v184.108.40.206
--> WIFI still broken
Downgrade of BIOS
IPFire 2.21 Core 128 with apu2c4 BIOS v4.6.9
--> WIFI fine again
I am not an expert.
I can not say for sure if there is an issue in the BIOS or in IPFire or in the hardware.
But whether my WIFI is working or not is related to the used BIOS version.
So, my question...
Is someone interested in more details here?
Should I do more research to tell you exactly which BIOS version breaks my WIFI?
(because right now I can only give you a range of eleven BIOS versions... 4.6.9 to 220.127.116.11)
