For those with/considering RISC OS 5.30 on the Pi, ROOL released an update to the WiFi drivers:

16-May-2024:

Fix bug preventing connections to Open networks initiated from the Connect... dialogue with a manually entered SSID name.
Report an error for overly short WPA passwords rather than trying to join with no hope of succeeding.

Look for mixed mode WPA2/WPA3 networks and allow connection to these. Previously they were wrongly identified as WEP secured.

Combine repeaters with the same SSID, channel, and security features in the nearby channel listing. Such repeaters will automatically roam if moved between.

The currently connected access point will always appear in the list of nearby SSIDs even if the beacon is missed when scanning for networks.

So anyone who may have dabbled with the initial release at the end of last month: you might want to try the latest. It's good to see progress.

Is the upgrade simply a matter of replacing the ROM image in !Bootloader, or should we update HardDisc4 as well (with reference to a Pi4)?

It's a self contained update. Just drop the !Boot dir on Config-Boot-Install-Merge.

My mistake: I'd forgotten the fact that the On board WiFi driver is a separate download (https://www.riscosopen.org/content/downloads/raspberry-pi
). Thanks for clarifying.
