I tried to do the same with Orange Pi 3 Lts last year, and it worked with Ethernet, Wifi was not working, I guest it had something wrong the config or the driver, but I couldn’t get it to work.
Found a howto get the wifi working…I think you must have internet access one way or another because the conversion script has to pull ALOT of packages
Make sure one you get it built, you use an imager to make a backup of the SD card so you don’t have to keep repeat building DietPi
This tutorial works when you use the Debian or Ubuntu that OrangePi provides.
After slimming it down to DietPi, the wifi device somehow disappears.
let me link the related GitHub issue Orange pi 3b network problem · Issue #6659 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub
There are some more information.
I’ve just tried to convert the Orangepi 3B from Armbian to Dietpi and it works!
Both wlan0 and eth0 are working.
Seem to be a good playground for some light usage.
Its performance is decent, benchmark sit near Allwinner H5 and S902 SoC.

please tell me you made a copy of the image after installation. when I try, the installation goes smoothly, but when I try to restart it, the green light blinks and after a while it stops and nothing more.
I would be also interested copy of that image
em… yes actually I have created the IMG for orangepi 3b, but its size is quite large as the zipping part of the image creation script seems cannot works for the newer kernel (maybe >6.1?) .
Anyways, I would try to upload the image somewhere and let you guys have the link!
Sorry for my late reply as I am quite engaged in my work…
Did you tried
dietpi-imager ? It should work independently from kernel version
it actually links to my other thread
Anyways, I don’t have time to further investigate the cause so just leave it
For the image of Orange Pi 3B
don’t worry that it’s a bit late, it’s good that you made a copy of it because some people wouldn’t even think about it, I’ll probably test it tomorrow, thanks again
There you did not answer. We are still missing the console output @MichaIng was asking for.
Can I share it on the orange pi discord server?
If this image works for you, I am happy you share it to other
it is good to let more people know the beauty of dietpi~
yes… sorry I was then engaged in works and didn’t further investigate…
Anyways I would be trying another board call Radxa zero 3W… May I could further post the log when I try
