Anything with xxxxx is entered without the
[ENTER] is the enter button on the keyboard

Boot into ethOS with LAN connected *internet connectionneeded to download files* & compatible wifi card installed, along with keyboard and mouse.
These are two that I had that worked without installing drivers

Hi! Could you update this guide? Or would you be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong? I have the netgear adapter from your guide, and have done every step numerous times. I'm still unable to get it working! My adapter insists it cannot find the SSID. But I know it can because it lists it when I type "sudo iwlist scanning."

Any ideas?

What do you have your security set to on your router - is it wep, wpa or wpa2 - does the rig see the wifi device ? can you turn a hotspot on your phone and test that as a second test.

This is confirmed and running upgrading from ethOS 1.3.0 > 1.3.2 also updating from ethOS 1.3.1 > 1.3.2 & also fresh install directly onto 1.3.2

Omg I've been looking for this forever! My miner will be on my sailboat soon.

Have you seen what salt air does to electronics?

I have a DLink Usb DWA-125 and it works but I have some concerns and it might not be ideal.

I followed all the instructions exactly it sees the network and connects, I edit /etc/rc.local above all text like it says, and then upon reboot, it didnt connect to the internet which I figured out later it takes 5 minutes to connect, and only shows 1 GPU. I remove the edit from /etc/rc.local reboot and still says 1 GPU is shown at the top, unless booted with Ethernet and it shows all and starts immediately. I can type start network-manager and it instantly connects to the network, and I can visit websites, without even entering the nmcli d wifi connect... , so I guess it remembers the password when first entered from the earlier step. Unless I plug the Ethernet cable back in before booting, it doesnt show the GPUs on startup and says starting ethos: finishing boot process and then 5 minutes later, it connects to the internet, and GPUs show up. 10 minutes later, its almost at full speed, Im a few mh/s shy of my normal rate.

Thankfully this miner is pretty stable so if it takes 10 minutes but runs for days then no big deal, but Im curious why its taking so long to start and if there is something I can do to fix that, or if this is the same experience regardless of network adapter, but I doubt it, this seems off.

Thanks for the guide!!
