I just bought an A+ (raspberry pi A plus) board, but I'm not able to get my USB wi-fi dongle working. Linux prints out Device not accepting address 4 Error -71. You can see a picture of the boot message here:http://imgur.com/2H5QBGu
I also have a model B I bought last year. It's been working great. I swapped out the sdcard from the A+ to the B and booted it. The B found my "Pluggable" hub, the attached keyboard and got an IP address from my wi-fi router. This tells me the config files are OK on the sdcard.
I've tried plugging the dongle directly into the USB port on the A+ and also tried it on the Pluggable hub, but either way is just fail. Any ideas how to get the wi-fi working on the A+?
What make/model etc. is your USB WiFi dongle?
The output of lsusb
(and, possibly also, usb-devices
) from the B Pi which it works with will probably be useful to those forum members that know about the behaviour, drivers, etc. for, perhaps, less-common dongles, should it prove to be one of those.
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, 2xB2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, and a A+) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
