Hey @rahul, that sounds very strange indeed. Sorry for asking so many things to try (that’s just remote hardware debugging), but could you try these:
- If you have the image that you used with the Pi 3, mount the SD card, and copy out
resin-boot/system-connections/resin-wifi-01 (I think that should be the filename, or sometimes just
resin-wifi in the same folder) which has your wifi setup in there. Then flash a card with with the Pi ZeroW’s balenaOS image, and copy this file in to the same place (in effect, testing the known working wifi config in the image that had network issues
- You mention that you see
IPV6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready, how do you see that? You connect into the device with the debug console? If you do, can you also show the output of
nmcli c (the connections reported by network manager), and maybe the NetworkManager logs with
journalctl -a -u NetworkManager --no-pager that might show any issues.
- Could you also take a picture of the bottom side of your Pi ZeroW, where the part number and other information are, and post it here? So that we can know exactly which revision you are having problem with.
I’ve just tested a Pi Zero W V1.1 with balenaOS 2.32.0+rev1 in our office, and that connects, so looking for any piece of extra information that might explain what’s going on here.
Also, just to note, as you originally asked about https://github.com/balena-os/balena-raspberrypi/issues/330, it is not relevant for the Raspberry Pi Zero W, only to wifi chip present on the balenaFin.
