Hi! I’m new with suse and I’m having some troubles with my wifi connection. It used to work but it suddently… didn’t.
OpenSuse Ver: 13.2
I’ve tried several commands which prove the card is found and plugged to the PCI.
lshw -C network *-network UNCLAIMED description: Ethernet controller product: AR5212/AR5213 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Qualcomm Atheros physical id: 1 bus info: pci@0000:03:01.0 version: 01 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm cap_list configuration: latency=168 maxlatency=12 mingnt=10 resources: memory:eebf0000-eebfffff
My network is managed by wicked, and when I check my config on YaST says the following:
AR5212/AR5213 Wireless Network AdapterBusID : 0000:03:01.0
Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details.
Now I remember it used to work, and there was another interface (called wlp3s1) which doesn’t appear anymore. I tried to add a new wireless device (wlan0) which doesn’t appear when I try the commands iwlist or ifconfig.
linux-mqsv:~ # iwlist scan lo Interface doesn't support scanning. enp1s0 Interface doesn't support scanning. linux-mqsv:~ # ifconfig enp1s0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:19:66:37:BF:74 inet addr:172.26.0.18 Bcast:172.26.0.127 Mask:255.255.255.128 inet6 addr: fe80::219:66ff:fe37:bf74/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:45566 errors:0 dropped:1 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:40887 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:39947026 (38.0 Mb) TX bytes:4921544 (4.6 Mb) lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1 RX packets:110 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:110 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:11746 (11.4 Kb) TX bytes:11746 (11.4 Kb)
Also dmesg returns the following error
dmesg | grep ath 11.495662] ath5k 0000:03:01.0: registered as 'phy0' 11.551863] ath5k: phy0: failed to wakeup the MAC Chip 11.552826] ath5k: probe of 0000:03:01.0 failed with error -5
ath5k is active and rfkill is blocking nothing.
I don’t know where the problem could be. Any suggestions?
