I wanted to switch from LibreElec Krypton to CoreElec Leia (9.0.1. stable). Booting works fine, but my wifi doesn’t work at all. I don’t have the option to turn it on or off and it doesn’t find any networks.
I used the gxl_p212_2g.dtb Device Tree and I’m running CoreElec from a Micro SD Card.
Did I miss anything?
Do you know which wifi chipset your device has?
I tried checking it, but couldn’t find it in any system settings.
Can you give me a hint where I can get the chipset?
You can type
lsmod inside LE on SSH and paste the output and we can tell you.

This WiFi model is not supported in the current versions.
You can search for “9082xs” on the forum, there are several topics about it.
Too bad. Thank you for your help.
So my best bet would be a wifi stick then?
Either that or a wifi bridge or some powerline adapters.
Really, the antenna in this box is extremely weak. Unless you do the mod, I would suggest sticking to hardwire.
