[SOLVED] Omega can't connect to WiFi
As far as i can see the wifi is broken, i can't see the AP on any of my devices it just simply has no means of connecting to the wifi, how do i get a refund/replacement?
i just bought a relay shield + ethernet shield can you please send me a replacement onion with that aswell,?
Hi @Eoin-O'Dowd, I figured out what the issue is. It seems that the ART partition on your Omega wasn't flashed properly. This partition contains the WiFi calibration data. However, to fix this you will need the Ethernet expansion. Would you like to wait for Ethernet expansion or would you like us to show you how to hack it with resistors and capacitors?
please tell me how, i only have 10K resistors with me though!
ah, it's ok i'll wait a few weeks for the ethernet shield thanks all the same.
hi @Boken-Lin ! I finally had time to try out your suggestions.
so here's the output of /etc/config/wireless.
I hope it helps! I'm trying another network right now, to avoid problems with the network authentication. I only need the wifi-password now and no additional network-passwords etc
Hi @Nito-Weber in
/etc/config/wireless, can you change
config wifi-iface option device 'radio0' option network 'wlan' option mode 'Router' option encryption 'psk2' option ssid 'SitecomA3A738' option key '15066589'
to the following:
config wifi-iface option device 'radio0' option network 'wwan' option mode 'sta' option encryption 'psk2' option ssid 'SitecomA3A738' option key '15066589'
Save the file, and issue
That block is there twice:
i'll delete one of them.
Had the same problem, the Omega didn't recognize my home network too.
Then I saw the Wi-Fi configuration with the option 'US' enabled. This option disables the channels 12 & 13, which are not allowed in the US (or only with power restrictions). They're allowed in Germany, where I live, and my router is using channel 13, so I changed the option to 'DE, and voila, the Omega immediately found my home Wi-Fi network and connected to it without any further problems.

Thank you @Hans-Dieter-Stich ! I did the same as you did, but that was the output again... as always:
how can i enable radio0 ?
Hi @Nito-Weber, can you run the following commands:
uci set wireless.radio0.disabled=0 uci commit wifi
@Boken-Lin i did it and that was the output:
I have tried eveything listed above and still no luck in connecting to my Wifi.
If I setup a hotspot on my ohone I am able to connect and have done the firware upgrade but still am not able to connect to my wifi.
I have an Arduino YUN that connected first time without any problems.
My wifi is running WPA2 with aes. This is the first device that I have had problems connecting to my WiFi.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi @Ian-Carr, Does your Omega able to serve an access point? Can you connect to the Omega via serial terminal, and copy and paste the output on the terminal when you try to connect with the

@Nito-Weber , might be a good idea to remove in your firs post the [resolved] from the title. So we can continue using it for the same problem with the experiences you made.
I installed build omega-v0.0.6-b279 from http://repo.onion.io/omega/images/
using the method discribed in https://community.onion.io/topic/358/factory-reset-not-working/2
The wifi setup worked first time and is running great.
@Nito-Weber ... Most dorm networks have 801.2x security which requires additional configuration (EAP/AUTH Type etc). This cannot be done on the omega because it ships with 'wpad-mini' by default. If you still would like to use it in your dorm then try the method in this post:
@Boken-Lin & @Lazar-Demin - if I may suggest why not make 'wpad' the default rather than the 'wpad-mini'. I believe it will solve most of the connectivity issues. Of course it will eat up a few kb more space but it could be worth it.
