HDD and Wifi Usage

Tue Jul 03, 2012 5:43 am

Hello all,

Got my raspberry pi last week and am beginning to learn, but still lots of Qs!

Does anyone know of any beginners guides on how to set up a wifi dongle (including network user name and passwords) and also USB harddrive set up?

Cheers!

Check this page for the tested WiFi dongles and the associated instructions.

To setup most WiFi dongles there are two basic steps
1. Install the firmware
2. Configure the WiFi security
