Another reason is that if wireless firmware is not loaded in the
initramfs then it does not get loaded at all.
This is a general problem that I have had now with three different
wireless drivers. The problem is that the built in wireless driver
starts working before the disk file systems have been mounted, and hence
the firmware is not available.
It is a bug, not a matter of a user setting. Whether the solution
adopted lies with the initramfs or somewhere else is something for
developers to decide.
How can I progress this?
