RISCOS and wireless?

Does RISCOS support WiFi at all?

On boot, I get a message about it trying to connect via Ethernet, but nothing about WiFi? Is the problem that it doesn't support my Wifi dongle or is it that it doesn't support WiFi at all?

No, there is no WiFi support... for now. It's possible, as WiFi support was once available on RISC OS computers. But not today.

Does this change at any time maybe, is anyone working on it? Without internet/wifi it makes no sense to try it out at all to me.

Internet works... with an Ethernet cable. For WiFi, you'll have to wait, but it's high on the RISC OS' todo list.

For a desktop computer (such as a RPi with RISC OS) WiFi does not make any since. Use Ethernet instead, like you would with any desktop computer, it works quite well.

You can get on the internet using Ethernet. And there is a LOT MORE to computing than just accessing the internet.
