My recently installed CentOS 7 instance does not enable wireless via Network Manager or otherwise.
I have the following output from lspci:
lspci |grep AR
08:05.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR5212/AR5213 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
uname -a Linux imaginationland 3.10.0-123.8.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Sep 22 19:06:58 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
iw –version iw version 3.10
iw -l reports that nl80211 is not found, which is probably the root cause of not having access to the pci device, however, I have no idea why I am unable to access this module.
I am unable to get wireless working, however, just prior to uninstalling network manager, I did see it there.
I use one of the vms as backup for my personal groupware server which needs to stay active, so I removed network manager, and made sure the configuration for the network and iptables was valid, prior to re-installing network manager. However, after re-installing, Network Manager never sees the wireless device at all.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
I have not had this type of trouble with linux in quite a few years, and usually if anything I just needed to install the 80211 kernel modules, etc…
I am unable to even pull those from repos, on this new install.
