Hi @Mus08, and welcome!

I see it looks like you device is using the correct driver. Or so it seems to me. So I think I can safely rule that out. Have you gone through this:


Also, on this page the answer is this:

I don’t know if it’s the same and if it’ll work or not, just passing the info I’ve found.

Couldnt really find anything that relates to my issue on the links unfortunately

Install the package named linux-firmware-marvell.

sudo pacman -S linux-firmware-marvell

This solved my problem. Thanks a lot!
