Hi, because my HP pavilion type 15-bs@xx already needed a newer than
Leap 15.0's kernel and an RTL8723DE wifi that will only be available in
the 5 series kernel I decided to upgrade to Tumbleweed.
I have a huawei E5573Cs-609 4G modem with the SSID hidden, because it
seems that wifi hacking tools are readily available. This supplies a
Tplink TL-WA850RE range extender with an ether net cable to my main pc
and an advertised SSID which supplies my laptop, a raspberry pi and
several cell phones with internet. It's never been hacked for some
After I upgraded to Tumbleweed my wifi carried on functioning but after
my last two zypper dup's the laptop will no longer lock onto the
TL-WA850RE's signal. I've tried both wicked and network manager, I have
an nfs server running on the laptop so I normally use wicked. Windows 10
has no problem with the tplink but openSUSE Tumbleweed will only lock on
to the hidden SSID from the E5573C
iw dev wlo1 scan picks up the TL-WA850RE with a healthy -28.00 dBm along
with various neighbors's routers, the hidden E5573Cs which lives at the
other end of the house only gives -64.00 dBm.
systemctl status network outputs for both devices:
wlo1 never gets past setup-in-progress.
