But I have hard time figuring how to get the wifi running. I have the standard dongle from rs (the one with the raspberry on it) which seems to have a Broadcom chip. I fiddled with the beta settings on the browser interface and it seems firmware doesn't load, and I can't find the extension to be downloaded through search.
Perhaps I'm missing something?
Once the wifi actually works, the next two things are, to figure out how to setup wpa enterprise (eduroam), and how to use the wiringpi/interrupts for volume control with a rotary encoder.
Any help will be greatly appreciated !
I am fairly sure we haven't got the drivers for the "official" wifi adaptor available. I will add it onto the list of things to do. In the mean time, the simplest solution is to get a cheap Ralink 5370 wifi adaptor.
Just a word of warning about buying wifi adaptors, you don't always get the advertised chipset.
When adding things to piCore remember it is very minimal, you will need to look at loading the appropriate extensions. In the last few releases there is micropython available in the base core which may work with wiriingPi after you download it.
For setting up wpa enterprise I would ignore piCorePlayer wifi setup and do it all yourself manually. I found this a good reference:
