did you check my link? some wifi dongles are supported right out of the box.
Did you try what I suggested - with the Tab key?I'm still getting nowhere at prompt "smc@osmc:~$". Am I in the right place for these commands.
Apparently not. I think prior to the 3, they didn't have WiFi.
He probably would have done better to have bought a USB ethernet adapter. That's pretty much guaranteed to work. WiFi is always a gamble with non-PC/non-Windows hardware.Hi, I have an older Pi running KODI (RaspBMC) on which the LAN port appears to have failed.
I still have a use for this so rather than toss it out I bought a USB wifi adapter.
Well, then, it is pretty clear you don't have lsusb on your system. At least we know that now.
The very first Pis were released just over 8.5 years ago.
You can still get Pi2Bs. All the ones on the market *should* be Pi2Bv1.2, but there may still be some Pi2Bv1.1 floating around out there from held by vendors that don't sell them very fast.The reason is my wife has heaps of mkv's partly watched and we'd like to know where she's up to (to watch the rest). This Pi just stopped working one day so we had no way to get that. I did try exporting the library as shown in an earlier link, but it took less than a second to write a file (I can't read on the PC). Perhaps there's no library as such if the HDDs can't be seen ?
Pis store all information on the SD card, unless you have set up some other type of mass storage device, such as USB stick, HDD, or SSD.Where is that info kept ? The place you're up to in a file.
the 1 you can read is the /boot partition, it is fat32 which windows can read. the 1 you can't read is ext4 a linux partition, that is where your stuff is in /home.AlexanderBB wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 5:24 amOn the Pi Board it says (c)2011.12
I can put the SD card into the PC and I see an N: drive (which can be read) and a 3.6GB 2nd partition which can't be read.
Do you know which partition would hold the info and if the one I can read, what the filename is ?
i was reading the osmc docs & it says:AlexanderBB wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 12:59 am>scroll down to network.

My System info = Not Connected
Check Network Settings
This is the bottom graphic in Settings - with Wired or Wireless Option, then Enable Adapter ?
Trying both return Status: Disabled.
you say you see wireless but it won't enable?Wireless Network
The wireless option will only appear if you have a supported wireless adapter connected to your device.
