    My mpci wifi does not seem to initalize properly

    in uboot i see
    00.00.00 0x168c 0x0030 Network controller 0x80

    where the vendor and device id are correct

    But once Ubuntu starts it shows abcd

    00:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device abcd (rev 01)



    You can try to modify below code in kernel driver file:

    /* Start link training */
    //reg = advk_readl(pcie, PCIE_CORE_LINK_CTRL_STAT_REG);
    //advk_writel(pcie, reg, PCIE_CORE_LINK_CTRL_STAT_REG);


    this works for me,I have try both QCA9380,QCA9880



    I have a similar problem. Make fun with espressobin v7, 4gb EMMC, Ubuntu 16.4.
    At the start in Uboot

    Any directions to get going WLE900VX with QCA9880?



    > Any directions to get going WLE900VX with QCA9880?

    By dropping crap stock Ubuntu and moving to Armbian perhaps?




    BTW. You need to install full firmware to get up this card: apt install armbian-firmware-full



    Thanks Аrmbian for the direction! I will follow your advice. I will inform here about the results.

    Armbian I owe you!



    I was not able to get started WAP with hostapd

    The interface exists

    WLE900VX uses the correct driver

    The command sees all the APs in the area

    root@espressobin:~# iw wlp0s0 scan | grep SSID:

    … and I still have no idea where to go?



    AP works for me. Check configuration and use google to resolve.



    armbian your wifi card which one is WLE900VX or WLE900VX Industrial Grade. It’s mine WLE900VX and may not support it mode Master?
