Failed to find module 'brcmfmac'


#1

Hello!
My name is Max.
I’ve just received my khadas VIM2 Basic and was installed Ubuntu-server-16.04_Linux-4.9_V170922 and there is an failure while booting:

root@Khadas:/home/khadas# systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service

Looks like there is a problem with the broadcom wireless driver. How can i solve this problem?
Thank You!

Hi,

I also have the same problem.

I tested it with the two firmwares you have on the khadas website and I also created two firmware using fenix scripts, but they all have this problem.

Apparently there are also problems to download files via scp when using wifi.

Thanks,
:wink:

Actually module brcmfmac is for mainline just like dhd for linux 4.9 and 3.14.So it doesn’t matter.

I understood, thank you.

Anyway, I configured the wireless, got the ip normally via dhcp but there is no traffic (it does not even ping).

any suggestion?
