[6.1 - rpi3b+] WIFI PROBLEM with "dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi" (config.txt)



  • Hello,

    Since RB 6.1 and the new Wifi management on boot, the parameter "dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi" in boot/config.txt does the job, but generates a problem :

    I'm using this parameter to turn off internal Wifi because it causes heavy problems with internal Bluetooth. I use the recommanded Wifi-n USB dongle instead.

    But now, Wifi isn't working until I deactivate it in the ES menu and reactivate it a few seconds later.
    It says "ON" in menu, but status is "DECONNECTED" (and its true).
    If I turn it "OFF", leave the menu and reactivate it, it now works flawlessly.

    This manual activation every time I boot is not very convenient...
    And if I leave the internal wifi ON, RB sees 2 identical SSID and starts the connection on the wrong adapter (internal).

    Any idea to fix it ?

    MORE CONFIG INFOS :

    Wifi router : 2,4 ghz, WPA2 key, Canal 11 ;
    recalbox.conf : SSID & key declared, region FR, no static IP or secondary Wifi.



  • @Harko hello,

    I reported this problem in the topic below.

    https://forum.recalbox.com/topic/19094/pas-de-wifi-alors-que-activation-wifi-est-à-on-depuis-la-6-0/17

    But you are lucky to be able to reactivate it by turning off and on. It doesn't work for me.



  • @Cyril92 Hello !

    Je ne suis pas sûr qu'il s'agisse du même problème, car je suis sur 3B+ et je n'avais absolument aucun problème avec la 6.0 dont tu parles (problème apparu avec la 6.1)...
    Mais c'est bien chiant si je ne peux plus couper le Wifi interne par le config.txt 🙂
    Et l'empêcher de se connecter depuis mon routeur ne me garantie pas qu'il n'interférera pas avec le Bluetooth, puisqu'il restera activé.

  • Same problem here. After upgrading to Recalbox 6.1, Wifi doesn't word anymore. When I go to Network Settings and put my SSID and Wifi Key, then tapping Close I get the error message "WIFI CONFIGURATION ERROR". Any ideas?

    In the link I mentioned above, it is said that this problem will be resolved in next version. There is a link given by OyyoDams where you can fnd and download a pre version. I tried it and it does the job now.



  • @cyril92 : thank you ! It's working with the second wifi-fix pre-version, with wpa_supplicant 😉
    RB 6.1.1 will help many people.
