Installer doesn't have working DNS?

I’m trying to use a 4GB USB stick to setup my new Yellow PoE (Rev 1.3) with a CM4 Lite (CM4004000) and a 500GB NVMe (SNV2S). Yellow LED just gets to the 1Hz flashing and never goes solid.

Plugging in via USB-C UART, I can get in via the serial terminal and log in as root.

I have an IP. curl and wget don’t have DNS resolution. nslookup works as expected. I can ping the internet:

I’ve also tried the other manual methods to install. It seems the rpiboot method doesn’t work with the CM4 Lite - every time I try, the rpiboot completes successfully but it doesn’t show up in the Raspberry Pi Imager.

I did notice that the date was very wrong. Maybe the RTC battery died? (Edit: the battery tests fine) Don’t see how this could prevent DNS from working - but maybe it would? Or the installer has some other DNS method and it’s https that’s failing? Seems like it should handle this discrepancy…

Not sure how to proceed here. Would love any thoughts.

Apparently I have an IPv6 issue…

This shouldn’t break the install, imho.

If the date is wrong, it may cause https to fail. Certificates have a valid from and to date.
