    Yeah. My bad for uploading my 64bit ifconfig file. I did not check that you were on 32 bit. Sorry. You can delete that ifconfig file I gave you in /usr/local/bin.

    I’ll be using the desktop computer again after some weeks, so for the present I’m testing the wifi issue on a live usb with persistence, on my laptop. I installed all the packages I had installed to the desktop installed system. Afterwards:

    $ inxi -Fxxx

    I have also installed firmware-linux-free, but it didn’t solve the problem.

    As you can see, using the net iso is hard work!
    Just wondering, I think you said that you tried base or core on the same laptop/desktop and wifi worked ootb.
    Is that true?
    This is the list of firmware included with core, but not with net

    Yes, net it’s quite hard. And, indeed, wifi worked immediately after the OS installation for both base & core, on all the three old computers I use.
    As regards net, I installed all the listed firmware, and now wifi works. Thanks. Of course, if I want to discover which of it is really necessary for this job, several tests are probably needed.
    But first, I have a more important problem to solve. I have installed alsa-utils, set all the alsamixer bars at about 50%, but still there’s no sound.

    I think, by default, they are muted in alsamixer.

    Open alsamixer, the MM label below a channel indicates that the channel is muted, and 00 indicates that it is open.

    Scroll to the Master and PCM channels with the ← and → keys and unmute them by pressing the m key.

    For your wifi, you might only need firmware-linux-free

    At the end of the post #9194, I wrote that I installed firmware-linux-free, and the wifi still didn’t work. And also firmware-atheros & firmware-iwlwifi had been already installed. So, I suppose that at least one of the rest is necessary.

    Maybe, just a guess, maybe it didn’t work because you modproped both ath9k_htc and carl9170.
    You could look after a reboot when your wifi is working with lsmod which modules are loaded.

    I see that I have to manually run ceni, scan for wireless network and give password every time I reboot.

    See my post on Roaming WiFi. It sounds like you took the default.

    There’s not wpa_gui on antiX-net, so I installed the wpagui package before. It worked. Many thanks.

    It’s true, after all. I purged all the listed firmware, including firmware-atheros & firmware-iwlwifi. I purged all, except only this one: firmware-linux-free. I rebooted. The wifi is still working.
