Hi, I am running OMV on an old laptop whose Ethernet port is busted. Now the WiFi has stopped working too, so I can't access the web UI. I only have commandline access.
I have confirmed by booting into Ubuntu live that Ethernet is a hardware issue, while WiFi is a software issue (it works fine in Ubuntu).
In the process of figuring out whether the Ethernet port was a hardware issue, I did the following two things after which WiFi stopped working:
- Modified some parameters in /etc/systemd/network/* files. However, I took a backup which I later restored.
- Ran omv-firstaid and used the "configure network interface" option.
ip a shows the following:
ip link set wlp2s0 up doesn't bring it up.
I have confirmed that wpa_supplicant service is running. I have tried killing it and running it again using wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/conffilename.conf -i wlp2s0 and it sometimes gives me a connection for a couple minutes before disconnecting again.
I have no idea how to start figuring this out, so I appreciate any help.
