[SOLVED] Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?

Changing Network SSID did it!!!!

Wow, unbelievable Exclamation

Quote:And the even more funny thing is that it will list routers SSID with spaces "This is a router" :-D

Same here, I see ESSID's with spaces, but never used a ESSID with space included. AFAIR there is/was ? a problem, but can't remember in which context that was. Toooo long ago ...

Ehm, maybe the router was confused and needed restarting .... Undecided

Quote:This have to be a bug and not an intendent feature with Kodi 17.4 and up. SSID with spaces have never been a problem for me until after Kodi 17.4.

Again, that has nothing to do with Kodi 17.4, must be a different package, maybe wpasupplicant or kernel, don't know

But anyway, I'll test a ESSID with spaces next days, will see what happens Smile

Quote:Just for the kick off it. I will try to reset my SSID to "Asus router" and see what will happen (will do that tomorrow) :-)

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! For your patience and guidance!!!

I will post a report what happened when i tried reseting to a SSID with spaces....will it let me scan?

Ok, so good night Big Grin

RE: Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?
Got the same problem (with the small difference that i'm still on 17.4 and not on 17.6) after installing the latest system-update and performing a restart, and the solution for me was also changing the ssid name from "Martin Router King" to "MartinRouterKing" first on my router and then on xbian via sudo nano /etc/network/interface
Now Kodi is able again to search for networks. But what i don't understand - there are plenty of networks with no blank in the ssid and Kodi couldn't find them before.

edit: one minute later and it's broken again Dodgy
edit2: aaand it seems that i can't get it running again

OMG Sad so the culprit must be in one of the packages you upgraded

Code:
sudo cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep upgrade

helps finding all packages which has been upgraded

RE: Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?
Hi, I am not sure if it helps in the discussion, but I am also facing problems with the onboard wlan0 adapter. I am not running kodi on this interface, but it stopped working after upgrading to the new linux kernel (4.9.62+-1511024152). I have reverted back to kernel 4.9.60+. This works fine with Kodi 17.6.
The issue with the wlan0 adapter that I had is that it did not receive any DHCP offers. I also tried to configure the adapter using a static IP but that also did not work. So it looks to me that it has got to do something with the kernel the driver or maybe a combination?

1) get all versions available:

Code:
sudo apt-cache policy linux-image-bcm2836

2) Install version you want:

Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-bcm2836=<the version you want>

for example sudo apt-get install linux-image-bcm2836=4.9.60+-1509910371

Thanks for reporting

Hmmm, that's strange. I was testing with this version yesterday, no issue occurred.

There was one brcmfmac related commit after release of 4.9.62, I'll build new kernel (4.9.65) now

RE: Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?
Ok, everything worked great last night.

So today, i did the HUGE mistake on updating everything. Now, it is broke again...even if my ESSID is now a one word. This is brutal :-(

That´s it...i´m turning off ALL updates!

Here is my dpkg.log
Terminal

2017-11-27 22:12:36 upgrade xbian-package-config-shell:armhf 20171108-0 20171124

I used a clean install on Xbian_2017.11.24_rpi3.img

Revert to an older snapshot (root partition), that's not a problem. Only kernel has to reverted manually

I have no idea how to do that :-)

Suddenly, after rebooting....my wifi is back on (haven´t changed anything). Will try a couple of reboots.

I managed to roll back a snapshot. But it made no difference. 1 out of 10 reboots i have wifi connection.

I´m wiping the card again, going to install Xbian_Latest_rpi3 (Xbian_2017.11.24_rpi3.img) and this time i´m not going to do any updates. I´m not going to restore my home folder and see if that makes any difference.

RE: Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?
I don´t know what to do. I have installed a fresh xbian version (Xbian_2017.11.24_rpi3.img). No restoring home folder or any updating.

At initial setup...it will find my wlan0 network. No problems.

But after a reboot. The network is gone. Can´t scan for routers or anything. It´s just gone.

Once again "sudo iwlist wlan0 scanning | grep ESSID" results in:

Terminal

wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Invalid argument

Huh

RE: Kodi 17.6, no more wifi?
Which kernel version are you running? Roy Teheran posted that reverting to 4.9.60 solves his WLAN issue
In the meantime 4.9.65 is available, perhaps this version solves your issue

I run 4.9.62+.

Will follow the instructions you gave to ThePumisher. And see if that fixes the problem.

Tried the instruction you gave in an earlier post.

Reverted back to 4.9.60. Tried shuttingdown the system, rebooting a couple of times. And Wifi works again!!! Big Grin

And also, i have learned a little Linux on the way. Thanks for ALL your help. Would have been totally lost without you!

But what does this mean? Is there a bug in the actual kernel? Do i always have to run on 4.9.60?

You mentioned 4.6.5 but i didn´t see it in the list of kernels.

I have everything turned off right now under Xbian/Update except for:
package inventory (can´t remember the actual text)
and make a APT-GET snapshot

Am i safe so it doesn´t update the system now?

new kernel has version 4.9.65 !

If you do not have enabled the auto-update feature, updates are installed on user action only. That's usually the standard setting Smile

I would appreciate if you could install 4.9.65 kernel, to see if this strange wlan issue has gone, because unfortunately I can not reproduce this issue with my Pi 3

Thanks

Sure. I will try 4.9.65 but how do i get it?
It is not listed under XBMC/Updates (only 4.9.62+) neither will 65 show up if i use:
sudo apt-cache policy linux-image-bcm2836

4.9.62+ is the highest. When i had the 4.9.62+ version it didn´t list 65 either. Because i first thought i should try to upgrade then to downgrade. But i couldn´t because it was not listed.
