[Not Supported SOLVED] NO wifi coreelec 9.0.1 ssv6051 WiFi Chip

Issue: NO wifi coreelec 9.0.1 CooleMe CM-MM1 S905W 2gb/16gb

What is working:

  • Ethernet is working fine.
  • Wifi can see the SSIDs but cannot connect
  • The android rom works OK with wifi

This is a seller for this box:


I understand this CooleMe CM-MM1 is a clone of Mecool M8s pro W

Here are the details from the box via ssh:

Here the pictures of the board and the wifi chip:

I can see the correct driver is loaded:

CoreELEC:~ # lsmod

dmesg is available here:

It appears this driver is now integrated in 8.1.7 build and later in LibreELEC.

I have not yet tried a LibreELEC build.

Kind regards
