Using wifi wireless on ethOS
#1
Anything with “ xxxxx “ is entered without the “  ” 
[ENTER] is the enter button on the keyboard

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

In the terminal box on the right of screen lick your mouse button inside the box so you can begin to type.

In the terminal box type the below
1. "sudo apt-get-ubuntu update" [ENTER]
2. "sudo apt-get-ubuntu install network-manager" [ENTER]
3. "Y"[ENTER]
4. "sudo start network-manager" [ENTER]
5. "lspci" (For PCI-slot cards) or "lsusb" (For USB cards) [ENTER]
6. “ifconfig” [ENTER]
7. "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" [ENTER]
8. "nmcli dev wifi" [ENTER]
9. "sudo apt-get-ubuntu install wpasupplicant" [ENTER]
10. "sudo nmcli d wifi connect <YourRouterName> password <YourRouterPassword> iface wlan0" (without the < >'s) [ENTER]
11. “sudo chmod +777 /etc/rc.local” [ENTER]
12. "Nano /etc/rc.local" [ENTER]
13.  Above all other text in rc.local enter
"start network-manager"
"nmcli d wifi connect <YourRouterName> password <YourRouterPassword> iface wlan0
14.  Ctrl + X to exit
15. "Y" for yes to save
16. [ENTER] to confirm
16. "R" for reboot [ENTER]

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.
