(SOLVED)HP2540p Wifi Driver not working.

Post#1 by a11ornuthin » 15 Dec 2014, 22:39

First post here, hoping that this is the right place for this. I'm using 3.1 UEFI, as the 2540p doesn't like the original install.
This is the first porteus build that I've had issues with a wifi driver on.

I'm not sure what the wifi card that's installed is but i can look tomorrow.
It works fine on wired but when searching for a wireless access point it doesn't see any.
Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Firstly I would boot under regular porteus and upload the 'Porteus Settings Centre' information dump and post a link here (when you get a chance) for fanthom to get a good idea of hardware.

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

getting debuging info is much easier in 3.2.0 release and booting desktop edition is not necessary.

@a11ornuthin
please do as follows:
a) download 3.2.0 ISO once again as it got latest updates on Saturday

b) install the kiosk using wired/dhcpcd connection (ethernet cable must be plugged it)

c) if your wifi adapter is on usb stick then please keep it plugged in all the time

d) on the final kiosk config page:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png
please press 'Edit' button -> add 'debug=yes' parameter manually -> press Save -> install as normal

e) once the kiosk boots it will open a system report in firefox so please copy it and send to support@porteus-kiosk.org.
you could also upload your report to pastebin.com and post a link up here but it contain your MAC addresses so it's not recommended to post it in a public place.

thank you
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Looks like I had forgot I had updated to 3.2 before hand, but grabbed a new copy anyways. I sent in an email to support@porteus-kiosk.org, and if need be I can try posting to pastebin with mac removed.I really appreciate the fast responses, especially from administrators!
