Apalis T30 WiFi

I am troubleshooting a UBlox Ella W131 wifi module on a production board using the setup below. Dmesg is attached.
dmesg.txt (43.2 KB)

root@apalis-t30:~# uname -a
Linux apalis-t30 3.1.10-2.8.7+g5e3cb65b1b4b #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 10 16:58:16 UTC 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux

Connmanctl returns the error below when I try to enable wifi.

root@apalis-t30:~# connmanctl
Error getting VPN connections: The name net.connman.vpn was not provided by any 
connmanctl> enable wifi
Error wifi: Method "SetProperty" with signature "sv" on interface "net.connman.Technology" doesn't exist

I read this post → How to enable SDIO WiFi in imx7 - Technical Support - Toradex Community, and it described rebuilding the kernel with new backports. Does that apply here?


Hi @eroc62,

I don’t see any obvious messages in your dmesg.txt file about the USB wifi module being detected. Can you run the following commands and post the output?

root@apalis-t30:~# rfkill list
root@apalis-t30:~# lsusb
root@apalis-t30:~# ifconfig -a
