Wifi with Debian Linux 11

Wifi doesn't work after standard Installation

  • Error boot message “firmware: failed to load rt2870.bin”.
  • Effect:
    • If Wifi is enabled, there is no access to the local network ( e.g. 192.168.168.* ), just access to Internet.
    • If Wifi is disabled, access both to the local network ( e.g. 192.168.168.* ) and Internet.
    • If you disable Wifi by Debian desktop menu item ( “Turn Off” ), you must press the ALT-F2 key combination to turn it on again. First you are in “Flight Mode”. You may leave “Flight Mode” by the Debian desktop menu.

1. Hardware Check

  • Dell Community "Vostro 1000 Linux wifi" - Check detected hardware:
    $sudo lspci -v

    	Physical Slot: eeepc-wifi
    	Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
    	Kernel modules: rt2800pci
    

2. Add "non-free" Component

    # Debian 11 "bullseye"
    deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main contrib non-free
