Hello folks,
I am wondering if there is any solution for connecting Raspberry Pi to the Internet via Wi-Fi instead of Ethernet cable.
Thank you

I use a TP-Link TL-WN723N via a powered USB HUB.

There are lots of verified WiFi devices listed on

This wiki page also has a lot of links to instructions to enable WiFi.

So how does it work? I have to connect an USB HUB to one of the USBs on Pi and then connect the TP-Link TL-WN723N to the HUB or I can directly connect it to the Pi itself?

Thank you for recommendation... ;)

I`am on a similiar project. Today I got a Edimax EW-7811Un nano WiFi adapter and a USB hub. I`am using Raspbian Wheezy.

How can I get the adapter to work?
Would like a kindergarden guide :D

Best regards

Is there any way to get WIFI working WITHOUT beeing connected to the internet?? My Ethernetconnection doesnt work.

I am on a aetheros-chipset which should work. But, HOW? Can someone give a step-by-step-TUT for Linux-Noobs?

Exactly.
You can also connect it to the Pi directly if you short out the fuse (it draws too much power and causes the voltage to drop very much).

Is necessary to connect an external usb hub to obtain that wifi adapter TL-WN723N work out with the raspberry?.
I have spent all day trying to setup the adapter and I am stalled with this error: could not get status from wpa_supplicant

Thanks

Can anyone answer my question, when I enter the command (sudo nano etc/network/interfaces ) does not show anything, can it be because I don't use a usb Hub?

Or it must show something?

And when I plug the wn723n and enter ifconfig wlan0 no apiar..

If you're stuck use a GUI network manager like wicd. I bought a TP-Link TL-WN725N Wireless-N USB Adapter. I plugged it in, and ran wicd (which I'd installed from the respository), clicked the button at the top right of the WICD dialogue box, and selected 'Refresh'. WICD found the wireless adapterimmediately, and all I had to do was select 'Connect' and enter my router's WPA key. (This was in Raspian with the Bodhi (Enlightenment) desktop, but it should work the same in standard Raspian.)
