[Solved] can't find wifi in Rock Pi X

See the feature of the B model of ROCK PI X (support x86_64) here https://wiki.radxa.com/RockpiX/getting_started . I try to install Arch on it. And then I found no wifi here, but the pi is with 802.11 ac wifi module.
While I install

iwctl
device list

No device shows, but I can connect wifi via mobile phones and my PC (Arch Linux).
Also, maybe due to this problem, after installation, I still can't connect wifi, also can't use other devices to connect it via SSH, I have install networkmanager, openssh, wireless_tools and wpa_supplicant. I enable networkmanager and openssh, but the things are still not solved.
And I find the Wifi module information here.
AP6255 - The WiFi 5/BT4.2 combo module

Check the basics first: is linux-firmware installed?

Re: [Solved] can't find wifi in Rock Pi X

Assuming it is the same hardware as in https://forum.radxa.com/t/wifi-not-work … -pi-x/4729 the required kernel module is brcmfmac.
Is that module auto-loading indicating the kernel found hardware requiring that module?
What is the contents of dmesg?

I added some files from some users, now the wifi is working, but it can only connect to my mobilephone hotpoint but can't connect to other wifi

nmcli device wifi connect my_wifi_name password my_wifi_password
Error Connection activation failed: (7) secrets were required but not provided

Re: [Solved] can't find wifi in Rock Pi X

Now it's solved, and can't connect wifi due to the weak wifi
