Dealing with a very frustrating case of debugging leads to changing the environment:
My Raspberry Pi seems to be having problems with the wifi adapter after I upgraded Debian from buster to bullseye.
However, when I plug in the HDMI adapter and a keyboard, there is not enough power anymore to power the wifi adapter, so I can't figure out why it doesn't work.
@eigenellies it's a Zero 2 I believe, in any case not the W variant since the wifi sucks on that. It has an USB wifi adapter (Realtek 8811au). The adapter appears to request 100mW from USB and the RPi rejects it.
@eigenellies In any case I've had that a lot with the RPi Zero / RPi 2 Zero that plugging in HDMI reduces the power budget so much that USB devices start dropping out
@eigenellies well, they're ok USB wifi adapters you can get for cheap en masse… and a million times better than the built-in shite of the RPi Zero W
