When I start my system, I can’t use WiFi. It just says “Device not Ready”, and it stays like that until I turn off the computer. But, sometimes this doesn’t happen and the computer starts up normally. It’s really weird because it doesn’t happen 100% of the time, so I don’t know what to do. Can anyone help me?
Can you post the link from this command for your hardware.
inxi -Faz | eos-sendlog
Is it this link? https://clbin.com/FrVEE
Yes that is correct. Can you also post the output of this?
lsmod | grep rtw
Edit: Also wanted to ask if you are dual booting with Windows?
Yes, I am dualbooting. I use Windows 10.
Also, this was the output:
rtw88_8723de 16384 0 rtw88_8723d 61440 1 rtw88_8723de rtw88_pci 36864 1 rtw88_8723de rtw88_core 253952 2 rtw88_8723d,rtw88_pci mac80211 1216512 2 rtw88_pci,rtw88_core cfg80211 1064960 2 rtw88_core,mac80211
In Windows you should try turning off fast start up feature that is a power management setting. See if it works properly after restarting.
I also wanted to ask if you installed any packages to make the WiFi work? Or did it work after the install?
The first time I started EndeavourOS after install, it worked fine. A few days later, I got the problem and after rebooting it was fixed. And it has been happening randomly ever since. Also, I didn’t install any extra packages for WiFi.
Try the above package that @joekamprad suggested
yay -S rtw88-dkms-git
After a few restarts, the “Device not Ready” error happened again, even with the package you mention. What should I do now? Also, something I noticed is that Ethernet works fine, it’s just Wi-Fi that doesn’t.
You may need to blacklist some modules that may be interfering.
How do I know what I have to blacklist?
I thought it explained it above on the github page for the module you are using.
Some distros provide
RTL8723DE drivers. To use this driver, that one MUST be blacklisted. How to do that is left as an exercise as learning that will be very beneficial.
If your system has ANY conflicting drivers installed, you must blacklist them as well. For kernels 5.6 and newer, this will include drivers such as rtw88_xxxx. Here is a useful link on how to blacklist a module
Once you have reached this point, then reboot. Use the command
lsmod | grep rtw and check if there are any conflicting drivers. The correct ones are:
rtw_8723de rtw_8723d rtw_8822be rtw_8822b rtw_8822ce rtw_8822c rtw_core and rtw_pci
If you have other modules installed, see if you blacklisted them correctly.
sudo modprobe -r rtw_8723de #This unloads the module sudo modprobe rtw_8723de #This loads the module
