I tried booting Fedora 33 on my old Allwinner Pinebook, and it certainly boots, but the very first thing I noticed was that Gnome didn’t know anything about its wifi. Does anyone know where to start looking into that? I know other distros support wifi on the Pinebook.
Thanks for any help!

@tfb …! Welcome to the community! Please do take a few minutes to go over the introductory posts in #start-here when you have the time. They contain lots of useful information.
Please help us to help you…
you don’t provide enough information to detect your issue, the first things you need is to know the chipset, to do it you should provide the information of the follow commands:
lsusb :Information on USB devices
lspci :Information on PCI devices
uname -a :Current running kernel

@tfb Welcome to the fedora community!
I think a good start would be
" https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=7844&highlight=pinebook+Fedora " point 2 seems to be a known issue with the internal WIFI
Did you make some researches already there in the pine64 community? If yes would be nice to know more about it.
Bringing opensource hardware together with opensource software makes sens for me …
