Help with HeadLess install

Looking for help installing Diet Pi on Raspberry Zero W headless (I don’t have a monitor with HDMI)…

I can install Jessie Light headless without issues so there much be a way to install DietPi…
I followed all instructions I found relating to dietpi headless installation, and there aren’t that many, but my system doesn’t see the network connection…

Followed these instructions: Edited /boot/dietpi.txt making required changes:

AUTO_SETUP_NET_ETHERNET_ENABLED=1
...
AUTO_SETUP_NET_USESTATIC=1
AUTO_SETUP_NET_STATIC_IP=192.168.1.20
AUTO_SETUP_NET_STATIC_MASK=255.255.255.0
AUTO_SETUP_NET_STATIC_GATEWAY=192.168.1.254
AUTO_SETUP_NET_STATIC_DNS=8.8.8.8

Also tried:

AUTO_SETUP_NET_USESTATIC=0

Any help appreciated…

Mike

is AUTO_SETUP_NET_WIFI_ENABLED=1?

If both (AUTO_SETUP_NET_ETHERNET_ENABLED=1 && AUTO_SETUP_NET_WIFI_ENABLED=1), it defaults to wifi so I have AUTO_SETUP_NET_WIFI_ENABLED=0 … right?

yes that is correct

Thanks for confirming that…
So far I’ve only tried to connect via USB cable, as soon as my new memory card arrives I’ll try via Wifi…
