I installed Big Sur and I am trying to fix WiFi but the recovery mode is not working. When I press cmd+R it brings me to the internet recovery and from there I cannot disable csrutil.

When I list the disks I do have a recovery volume with 655Mb

Is there a way to fix recovery mode?

Yep. Same issue, when I try to boot on recovery mode it goes to internet recovery and tries to reinstall OSX Mavericks, I also tried to reinstall big sur from an usb, didn't worked. I have a late 2013 13" retina macbook pro

I have one USB keyboard and two bluetooth ones(No Apple keyboard). I noticed that I couldn't bring any of them. I plugged a wired keyboard and it worked. Don't know if it's related to your issue.
