• No network devices available after install


    I have just installed Antergos and can’t connect to my WIFI. During the installation I had no problems connecting from the Live USB. The system tray shows that there are no network devices availiable:


    I then ran the ip link command an the only interface that it outputs is the loopback interface:


    The lspci -k command gave the following output:


    So the network card is recognised and the drivers are installed and in use. I am confused as to why the network interface does not show up and what to do to be able to connect to the Wifi.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  • @dimax25 Bro, I experienced the same problem in installing Wifi drivers but mine is Broadcom BCM 43142 model.

    I suggest you to install linux-headers package from Pamac/terminal first. This is like one of the fundamental required packages. I don’t know if it already preinstalled or not, but just check it. Once you do this, you can get on with your debugging.

    I spent over 3 hours just to get my Wifi right, but after that everything is a breeze.
    Sorry, I wish I knew more about this but I don’t. Anyway, try this and hope this will be helpful.

  • @Quantum_Sniper Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it didn’t change anything. ☹

    I used arch-chroot from the live USB to install the package but the problem persists…

  • @dimax25 i would say it can be different issues:

    • firmware not loaded correctly or unaviable
    • driver do not support device or needs a newer version.
    • latest kernel have a problem with detecting the device right

    dmesg | grep ath10k
    to see what is gouing wrong on device initalisation

    Try booting LTS kernel:

    sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
    sudo mkinitcpio -P
    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    and remind to choose LTS kernel on bootmenu by go to Advanced options for Antergos and choose it!

  • @joekamprad booting the LTS kernel unfortunately did not fix the problem.

    The output of

    dmesg | grep ath10k

    Is the following:


    So it appears that the firmware didn’t load correctly but I still don’t know how to interpret this and how to fix it.

    I have tried to unload and load the module manually by using

    modprobe -r ath10k

    and then

    modprobe ath10k

    But that did not help either. Thank you for taking the time to help.

  • /usr/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/board-2.bin

    firmware is included inside linux-firmware …

    I would try LTS kernel
