My tests with current image:
Built ARMbian again with 4.9 kernel and retested:
iw reg set GB
iwlist wlan0 scan
Also benefits of 4.9:
4.9 kernel image uploaded for testing, waiting for Gordon's response:
Gordon reports following issues resolved with this image:
twi_start()434 - [i2c0] START can't sendout!
On startup with wired ethernet and using dietpi-config you need to enable the wireless first before you can set the ssid/pw. When enabled it goes searching for the default ssid/pw. It waits a while before it fails and then returns to the menu where you can scan and select ssid and input pw that you want.
Will create a new ticket for this
Due to: #669
I'll update the image and set live. 🈯️
Completed, 4.9 image is now live.
