Raspberry Pi 3 wireless config

Hi, my name’s Daniele from Italy. I’m new on this forum.

In this time i’m trying to configure a raspberry pi 3 with DietPi with wireless settings but without success.

I try with this settings:
Optional (Wifi):
Pre-configure Wifi Details for DietPi

  • Goto my computer, select the SD card and open it.
  • Locate the file called dietpi.txt and open it with wordpad.
  • Set Wifi_Enabled=1.
  • Enter your ssid Wifi_SSID=MySSID and Wifi_KEY=MyWifiKey (both are case sensitive).
  • Save the file.
  • Plug the Wifi adapter into your device, before turning it on.

But when i turn on the board, wi-fi isn’t in fuction.

For test i tryed with a classic raspbian iso and the wi-fi controller is ok.

Can you support me? Thank you very much for your disponibility.



Have a look at it:


Manual path

/DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware kernel dietpi_rpi


Above helped me yesterday with my RPi3.



Yep, apologies for that. New installations are not effected as we fixed this in the kernel download.

Thankyou very much. I solved the problem!
