su un raspberry con Volumio su SD ho scollegato un dongle wifi "a caldo". D
a, l'ho collegato ad una porta usb di un pc windows e funziona perfettament
to la SD e ho ricaricato Volumio (che di base credo sia una distribuzione R
aspbian) ma nulla da fare, funziona solo la rete cablata nella porta ethern
Cosa posso provare a fare?
Are we sure that the driver for the dongle works in Linux? Not everything
that works in Windows has a Linux driver.
There should be a supported hardware list on the Debian site. I'd check that
first before anything else.
I haven't tried the ndis driver on a Raspberry PI. It is a kernel module that
lets Linux drive a wireless network interface using Windows XP files. That
gives you an idea of how long ago I used it on an Intel box. Things could
have advanced with the times.
After tearing out my guts, to go on-line with a 3G-dongle, I analysed
why it seemed so difficult.
It's because people who have done it don't know the underlying mechamism,
or that they say "doA, doB....
The correct method, especially for a 'serial-event-process' is:
CONFIRM1, CONFIRM2, ....
There's no point in tuning for the station, until it's confirmed that the
'radio-is-switched-on'. For 3gDongle do:
= confirm that usb-dongle is detected by system; lsusb,
demesg | tail, ..etc.
= confirm that method to switch dongle from CDROM to modem works:
`eject ` usually suffices, else there's
= my dongle gives feedback via LEDs.
Only after the above stages have succeeded, need you go on to ppp ..etc.
I can't remember why [it's in my notes], but rPi needed in
my old PC's chat/ppp script. Apparently rPi's pppd is different.
I had to install on rPi. OTOH apparently they use something
else today. I could paste my scripts?
