Default The Offical Why My Wifi Doesnt Work Thread

so before any of us have to answer this question again please read this thread

so with dzo's port of the newest kernel he started including a wlan.ko compatible with the newer 2.6.32.nbh's into his builds. this left small fragmentation issue with people still using the older kernel

so when you use android on any of the phones in our project your nbh/ zImage is where your kernel is

so you have 2 options for your .nbh/zImage their are
2.6.25 (older kernel)
2.6.32 (newest kernel)

the older 2.6.25 kernels are available on dzo's site (should be a link to it in the first post of this thread) the last one he made was 26-07-2010 (what i use on my touch)

the newest kernels 2.6.32 are avalible for download from the kaiser kernel thread

if using a 2.6.25 kernel you need an update for the wifi this is attached to this post

now those instructions are assuming you have a kaiser if you have a polaris you need the wifi update for it reguardless the one for the 2.6.32 kernel that is also attached

for older polaris kernels i am not sure where the wifi update is for it but a forum search should find it easily if you know what your looking for

and lastly if your on a vogue, wifi will never ever work ever so stop asking

i think that should cover it if i missed anything everybody feel free to chime in (also if this could get stickied that be great)

This should be stickied tbh. This question is one that pops up the most followed by questions about .nbh's. Such as how do I edit them, how do I use a vogue rom on my kaiser, etc.

well it's sitting at near 7000 views, so it's getting looked at

Just thought it would help keep it from getting buried

Sorry for bothering you but i can't install this update.
I just get "failed to extract" message after each attempt.
Hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

I've got kaiser with .25 kernel installed on it, system stored on nand and data on ext2.
