    • Raspberry Pi 4 -- Using OMV with wifi

      Warning: This has not been verified to work other than briefly. File transfer speeds over wifi may be disappointing.

      OMV4 doesn't seem to include the wifi drivers for RPi4.

      I have figured out how to install them to allow a RPi4 OMV4 NAS to work over wifi. Well, not actually. I just read this thread and did it: RPI4 OMV WiFi

      The steps I took to activate wifi on the RPi4 running OMV4:

      The steps below assumes that you login as a normal user, that you have created, that is a member of users, ssh and sudo. Also that SSH is enabled.

      1. Login remotely to the RPi4 using SSH and download the .deb with the drivers from raspbian.org:

      wget https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/pool/main/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-brcm80211_20190114-1+rpt2_all.deb

      (If it doesn't work there may have been an update, adjust the filename accordingly.)

      2.Install the drivers:

      sudo apt install firmware-brcm80211_20190114-1+rpt2_all.deb

      (I ignored any errors and warnings. Could bite me later. I don't know.)

      3. Reboot the RPi4 and then login remotely, using SSH, to the RPi4 again.

      4. Run the utility armbian-config with sudo and configure wifi.

      (It doesn't seem to work to configure wifi in the OMV4 web GUI. There are errors and you have to revert.)

      5. Shut down the RPi4 and remove the ethernet cable.

      6. Start the RPi4 and it will now work on wifi. You can connect to the OMV web GUI by opening raspberrypi.local in a web browser.
