Using the Wifi adapter to connect to existing network


#1

I’d really like to get my ETC to connect to my wifi instead of creating its own.

I’ve been told that changing WiFi.sh to
“wpa_supplicant -B -D nl80211,wext -i wlan0 -c <(wpa_passphrase “NETWORK_NAME” “PASSWORD”)”

should do the trick, but for me, it doesn’t, it returns

“nl80211: Could not configure driver mode”

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?

Just in case other people are looking for this info: Solved this by messing around with the system, following the official Arch instructions: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WPA_supplicant

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