I'm trying to get the Wi-Fi working (again) on my model 3. I am not using Raspbian.
Which kernel config settings and loaded modules are needed for the Wi-Fi device to show up in
Once the device is detected by the kernel, what
wpa_supplicant settings are needed? For instance, I've found that
-Dnl80211 for the built-in Wi-Fi while my USB based Wi-Fi dongle (RTL8188CUS) needs
Anything else I'm missing?
How does the Bluetooth section of the wireless chip play into all of this? They're communicating to the SoC via a shared UART, correct?
I am running gentoo on my Raspberry Pi 3, compiling the raspberry pi kernel myself, which was all working well. I had the built-in Wi-Fi working great.
I modified the kernel source ever so slightly to add support for controlling the LEDs in a MagSafe connector (via 1-wire ds2413 module). This broke the built-in Wi-Fi support.
I've tried reverting the changes I made to no avail. This makes me believe there was some other recent change to the RPi linux fork / firmware that I missed.
