@vilda Thanks, I like to learn some positive subjects of my as well. I was not amused that wifi at public free acce
ss points does not work because without QR announcement e.g in our inner city it is still impossible to catch the free login mask . Also in my flat I couldnot store my own wlan on pinephone without first lowering restriction at my fritzbox ( avm vendor berlin, mac filter restriction)

@enigma The topics and problems you have are more of a lack of knowledge in networking. However, first I recommend trying more linux distributions, it is possible that some have a problem. I recommend PostmarketOS and read more about alpine linux (PmOS is based on alpine).

@vilda Since I have no lack of knowledge your advice subsequently lacks of sense. I am professionel linux networker for 30 years at our aerospace datacenter. I am not sure if you have more years. But you sound as if you are sure you have.

@enigma In that case, I apologize, I usually meet people who do not have enough knowledge in this area. Then there will be a problem with PinePhone. For example, in my home I can't connect to WPA3 wifi.

@vilda Im sure we both know that the wpa_suplicant is far too circumstantial for walking through the shopping mall and getting public wlan very first time ( on that AP in special) . With android you have it in 3 minutes. With pinephone = ? ( finally it works but far too late) However the creators of pp confirmed smaller flaws with the hardware

@enigma The solution may be a usb wifi card? At least it could solve the lack of hardware, the question is how is it with usb wifi drivers on ARM.


@vilda The solution for pp is to walk only ro the same access point in the shopping mall. Configure one time right with 10-20 minutes and return to that AP.😁😁
