Probably the question is more about the armbian, but I’ll ask her.
Ihave two Rock-pi with armbian 228 legacy with absolut identical setup (regional etc. ) one pi has no built-in
WiFi, It uses realtek usb dongle 81xx don’t remember with ac
suppport. If i type nmcli dev wifi realtek
Shows аll access points in 5ggz enviroments. But second rockpi with built-in wifi Sees only 2.4ggz 1-13 channels. Dmesg cfg80211 Shows that 5xxxxxxxxxKhz freq. is turned on.
What could be the reason?
thanks in advance
Hmm, if i look in the technical specifications of the realtek chip, i can´t find support for the 5.0 GHz network.
Thank you, but why dmesg Shows 5ggz freq on this chip🙃
The 80211 is not your wifi chip. The chip is a relatek RTL8723DS-CG.
I am understand cfg80211 is configuration API for Linux.
But why dmesg Produces “Fake News” like this:
cfg80211: (start_freq - end_freq @ bandwidth), (max_antenna_gain, max_eirp), (dfs_cac_time)

I have never seen 5ghz lines on my pure 2.4ghz dongles😒
Interesting, what command did you use?
This is output from dmesg -T. I don’t know why does he write this🤔
Hello from Hessen too
These are not the frequencies supported by the chip, but the regulatory rules for frequency/power combinations for a particular country.
Thanks, теперь понятно:face_with_raised_eyebrow:
