NOOBS WiFi

Fri Mar 25, 2016 3:33 pm

On NOOBS, I cannot seem to use WiFi, but on Raspbian it works, and on Ethernet, NOOBS works and shows the list of downloadable Operating Systems. Is there any workaround?

So what's the easy answer kusti8? Because I've seen troubleshooting steps but nothing that's resolved this issue either.

It's the default in NOOBS 1.9 for the Pi3, a WiFi icon on the toolbar.

I've tried that on a build from November, so I'll use this new one.

I'm on 1.9, shows the WiFi icon in the upper right hand corner, I select my SSID and enter in my key. Shows connection and when I run ifconfig it shows my IP in wlan0 (192.168.2.1/24) but still not able to connect when I open a browser. (Page cannot display)

@SamDoesPi noobs 1.9 only supports the rpi 3b built in wifi or the rpf broadcom wifi dongle.

Or if you want to review the pull request I made:

https://github.com/procount/noobs/blob/readme/README.md

or more specifically for wifi:

https://github.com/procount/noobs/blob/ ... i-networks

I hope the NOOBS maintainers will merge these updates in soon
