Jessie has no wifi with RPi3


I need to use Jessie because I use OpenHome Player and it must have Jessie. However, Jessie does not see/install driver with RPi3+

Is there any way to overcome this issue?

Thanks for the report.

I’ve applied a fix for this, please copy and paste all following commands to update the script:

wget -O /DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware

Now, when enabling WiFi, error should no longer appear.

Thanks but I think either I am doing something wrong or it is not working because it is still no go.

I do not get error message like before though like you said except nl80211 not found.

Please see attachment.

OK, I have no idea what happened but it is working now:) Thanks!
