Jessie has no wifi with RPi3

Post by jencelo »

Hi,

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?

Hi,

Thanks for the report.

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

Code: Select all

wget https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/raw/fed5638d23e3fd49b982d9a456fd76d8a7e329be/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware -O /DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware
Now, when enabling WiFi, error should no longer appear.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

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.
