Only 5Ghz wifi on default pinebook pro install


On my Pinebook pro with the default and current updated Manjaro distro the wifi only works with 5Ghz. The 2.4Ghz networks do no show up. Was from the start.

The Pinebook has the AMPAK AP6256 wifi and bluetooth module. Bluetooth works.

When I insert an ancient D-link usb wifi-stick, DWA-110, I do have 2,4Ghz wifi, what is no surprise.

So there must be something wrong with the configuration of the built in wifi.

Any advice to get that working would be appreciated.

Operating System: Manjaro-ARM
KDE Plasma Version: 5.22.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.85.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.13.12-1-MANJARO-ARM (64-bit)

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

There was a new kernel released a few days after you posted this. Does that help?
