Intel NUC Kit NUC6CAYH Intel Celeron J3455 , Wifi not provisioning

You are welcome, happy to help.

About bluetooth, should be able to figure out the required version by checking out the output of

dmesg

and grepping for “bt” or “bluetooth” maybe.

For changing the interface name, you should be able to do it via udev (see this link for example): https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-linux-rename-ethernet-devices-named-using-udev/

Hi @floion sorry I’m working through some other issues that are taking priority. I may not have a chance to get to this, but I’m glad to see that there’s a way to get it working!

Hi,

Wifi is also not working for me on my Intel NUC Kit NUC6CAYS
I am using balenaOS 2.46.0+rev1

dmesg shows the following output.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey, you’ll need to follow the solution steps already detailed in this thread, I’ve created a PR at https://github.com/balena-os/balena-intel/pull/276 which you could start with but as I’m not very familiar with yocto it is probably not enough by itself. You can also wait for the devices team to take a look at it but I cannot guarantee when that would happen

Thanks for the response.

It seems all very complex to me and time consuming as I have no experience at all in this area.

Is it also not possible and much simpler that I directly install the missing firmware on my host machine ?
If so it would be nice if someone can share me a link explaining how I can do this ?

@jan I see your point. I have contacted the devices team to see when we might get an updated image containing the required wifi firmware.
