BBEN NM11 Wi-Fi problem [SOLVED]

Post by Usesr1515 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 1:36 pm

Recently buy this miniPC BBEN MN11 http://ru.aliexpress.com/item/BBEN-Inte ... 20045.html
and install

Code: Select all

Linux version 4.10.0-38-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-059) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4) ) #42~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 10 16:32:20 UTC 2017 (Ubuntu 4.10.0-38.42~16.04.1-generic 4.10.17)
So No Wi-Fi, no sound, seems Video doesn't work properly.
lspci show nothing than looks like Wi-Fi or wireless
Windows device manager says it\s Broadcom 802.11ac WDI SDIO Adapter
SD\VID_02d0&PID_a9bf&FN_1 (what's this

Seems, I try to use any solution any can found at the Internet, with no success.
As I says lspci seems not see the Wi-Fi adapter or something could look like Wi-Fi.
So, I don\t know what should I do.
May be I need chipset driver or something?
In links below I attach the the lspci, lsusb, lscpu and dmesg output
lscpu https://yadi.sk/i/vH3Li_7A3YJDTw
lspciihttps://yadi.sk/i/jREAf4EM3YJDU2
lsusbhttps://yadi.sk/i/sBSr-r783YJDUC
dmesghttps://yadi.sk/i/O5DxnCOr3YJDb3
Will be appreciate for any help.

Try the Linux Mint 19 Beta and see if video is any better

Yes. On Linux 19 Video much better and seems installed correctly.At now I do not have access to my Linux machine and can not show output lspci, but seems all correct when I see it.
But Wi-Fi Sound and Card Reader still not present. Any idea?

Since there is no nvram file, check results for dmesg | grep brcm
You will likely see a (-2) for a file that ends with sdio.txt and you will need to search to see if you can find a file with that name on the internet

brcmfmac43455-sdio.txt

Fixed by this
wget https://github.com/khadas/android_hardw ... /nvram.txt
sudo cp nvram.txt /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.txt

JeremyB thank you so much!
So, please tell me for audio and card reader I must create new topic, or may continue to ask the help in this one? Think "one device - one topic" it's also no so bad idea?
