Did you run the Xbian wifi configuration script??
I am running the latest version of XBian (1.0, Alpha 3) and it definitely does not have anything called "XBian Settings" available for use or download. I believe the problem may be that the Wi-Fi dongle isn't getting enough power. I might send it back because I was also never told it only works on Debian 6.redhawk wrote:Yes I was talking about "Program, Xbian settings" but if this doesn't run when XBMC restarts then you have problems.
Fortunately Xbian is quite configurable like Raspbian so basically you should be able to manually setup your wifi access with the help of ethernet connectivity.
First you need to exit XBMC this takes you to the console window as root, alternatively you could just login to Xbian via ssh as root : raspberry.
Getting your wifi dongle to work depends on the chipset some unsupported devices require additional packages installed.
After that you have to configure your wireless networking i.e. SSID, encryption type and password so on every boot it connects to your wifi router.
