Ups. Raspberry 400 is not Raspberry 4. Newer WiFi chip needs newer firmware?

Try this:

And show me the log, please.

I'm having the exact same problem on a Raspberry Pi 400 using WTware v6.0.22, works fine on the Pi 4 so I'm guessing there must be some hardware difference?

Recent wtware version should work on Raspberry without external firmware.

I'm trying to configure WTware on Raspberry 400.
When I set up the WiFi, it says Driver needs firmware, go to and download brcm\brcmfmac43456-sdio.bin
Unfortunately there is only brcmfmac43455-sdio, tried it but it doesn't work.
