How to enable wifi so I can update the system

Post by bussrox »

I am having difficulties connecting to wifi so I can run the updates after initially booting up the system. All I have is a wifi dongle and I don't have access to the modem/router so an ethernet cable is not an option. I have the Odroid WIFI module 5A.

I believe @meveric's OGST image should have a RTL881x DKMS driver which supports the WIFI module 5A (RTL8811AU).

can you check the output of:

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep -i firmware
Maybe it's missing some firmware.
The Kernel itself should support the WiFi Module.

I was able to locate another wifi dongle and plug it in. This new one is working and I am able to connect to Wifi. It appears the odroid dongle was not working appropriately.
