ETC as running ftp or ssh instead of webserver

Thanks! The start command was missing from the 0-WebFiles installation package. I’m in now. :slight_smile:

There is another problem with the instructions in this thread, is it possible that the wifi adapter now shipping with the ETC requires a different driver?

The line “wpa_supplicant -B -D nl80211,wext -i wlan0 -c <(wpa_passphrase “NETWORK_NAME” “PASSWORD”)”


“nl80211: Could not configure driver mode”

on my ETC. Prodding the system tells me that I have the rt2870 chip in the USB wifi dongle that came with my ETC. What driver should I use instead?

More exactly, lsusb returns:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter

FYI: Solved this by messing around with the system, following the official Arch instructions:

Now I’ve got it set up in wpa_supplicant.conf instead, and it works as it should without specifying driver.

Thats good to hear.
What are your exact settings in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf now?

Do you run the ETC as master of its own network or do you use it as a client in your local home WLAN?
(I found the latter more practical)

I’m connecting to my home WLAN, that was the whole point, otherwise the method was working for me, to set up ETC’s own network.

The wpa_supplicant.conf is now just:


I set it up by following the instructions for wpa_cli here:

My file now just contains the line “dhchcd” to start DHCP.
