Pi 3 WIFI ISSUES

Sun Apr 03, 2016 3:52 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm running my raspberry pi3 with the official full Jessie img that is supposed to include wifi setup, but I don't have the wifi icon on the top right of the screen and when i use the request
ifconfig -a
it prints :

it seems that the firmwares aren't installed
How is it possible to install it?

Thx you

In your picture the "2 Screen" Network Icon is showing on the TaskBar :?

The information is out there....you just have to let it in.

My other Linux machine is a ChromeBox

it's my ethernet connexion, when I unplug the wire and restart the RPi3, it displays that the eth0 is down, but nothing about wlan0

I switched back to using TP Link mini dongle. Had nothing but problems with internal wlan and Netgear Nighthawk router

It's weird, as if it was unable to find the hardware....
