Have you checked for missing firmware? Issue
and search for the character string "firmware". For example
The "g" takes you to the top, "/firmware" searches for the string "firmware",
and "n" repeats the last search. Use "n" as often as necessary. Look for
evidence that the kernel tried to load firmware but was unsuccessful.
Use "q" to exit, of course.
