Hi! Can you explain how to install drivers for wifi usb stick realtek 8188 on this distro?

Hi there,

My M1+ cannot get wifi work. ifconfig shows wlan0, and when I connect to my AP, it ask me to enter my password, after I entered password and click connect, it will show the enter password window again later. How can I get WIFI work?


#4

Are you sure that use this image? Because there is not any window, unless you install some desktop environment. And anyway… if you see your access point - wifi works.


#5

Hi, quick question, out of the box SSH is disabled, how can you enable this during flashing? I’m doing this from a windows machine.

Update: I found a thread here BPI-M1+ Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) that recommended to use Armbian, seems compatible with Banana PI M1/M1+.
