DELL Latitude E6410 WIFI not workinh

Hi

I just installed installed home assistant generic x86-64 on the a DELL Latitude E6410. I am able to get wired internet working, but I am not able to get the WIFI not working. I believe I need a driver, but I do not know where to find it an install it? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What chipset does the laptop wifi use?

EDIT:

lsusb

and

ifconfig

According to the BIOS screen it is a Broadcom Wireless device

You’ll have to be a little more specific.

If you boot it from a ubuntu flash drive, does the wifi work?

If so, what driver does it use to work?

Hi

Yes the WIFI does work in Ubuntu. It is a BCM43224
Thank you for your help

BTW I have tried following the instructions in this link
Wi-Fi - Alpine Linux.

In the troubleshooting section, after I run
git clone git://git.alpinelinux.org/aports
I am not able to change the directory to aports/non-free/b43-firmware , because it did not create the directory .

The lsmod command lists the kernel modules loaded. It will be a long list, but it should have the kelnel module in the list.

That is the whole list

With the wifi working? I meant in ubuntu.

Back to haos try

modinfo brcmsmac
modinfo b43

Bugger. We are running into my lack of knowledge of haos internals.

Anyone else running the b43 driver on ha os?

But probably time to say: wifi and a haos server is not a good mix. Stop it now :slight_smile:

I have been puzzling my way through the haos kernel config. Not being entirely familiar with the buildroot system, it seems to be a combination of operating-system/device-support.config at f0032a39f26fef36d435a379815a7ac4e41c2ffd · home-assistant/operating-system · GitHub and operating-system/kernel.config at e5754a5d29bdd2d00aa7cf71a90a3eb35044176a · home-assistant/operating-system · GitHub

This is very new to me too.
