During installation I got to configure a WiFi connection, I could see that I received an IP and I was told the speed of the connection (6Mb/s which seems slow but it's a connection). When the installation was finished, however, I couldn't connect to a WiFi network. I ran nmtui and the configuration was correct (after all it worked during installation), lshw the following info:
Code: Select all
*-network DISABLED description: Wireless interface product: QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Qualcomm Atheros ... logical name: wlp2s0 ... configuration: broadcast=yes driver=ath10k_pci driverversion=3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64 firmware=WLAN.RM.4.4.1-00051-QCARMSWP-1 latency=0 link=no multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11 resources: irq:140 memory:ed200000-ed3fffff
I found this bug report for Ubuntu and tried the proposed solution but it didn't work.
I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to Linux or CentOS, so the output from dmesg doesn't tell me much but a grep for the ath10k driver provides this:
Where do I go from here? It seems there are drivers present, as I could receive an IP during installation but perhaps they are not loaded? Or is there a trick to enabling the WiFi device (which is indicated as disabled) some way? Is there any additional info I need to provide?
