wifi setup
Hi all,

Just got my Raspberry Pi, and I know almost nothing on linux.
setup of RasBMC was smooth and took only 15 minites, very happy with it.

my problem is with wifi setup:

I have a Ralink rt5370 USB wifi dongle.
I think it's installed because when I type:

$ iwlist wlan0 scan

I get my wireless network name in the results (or is it quoting what is written in my /etc/network/interfaces file?)

but when I type

$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

I get:

ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0

I tried anything suggested in this forum and others, but nothing helps.

Hi there,
i think RC4 has better wifi compatibility.
Hope it should go public very soon :-)

So i would prefer to wait ;-)

Greets,
Michael

Will the stable version have automatic wifi setup?

RE: wifi setup
Turned out to be a one letter typo
working now on lxde (managed to surf the web) but not when I restart into xbmc - now wired ethernet doesn't work either.
Ouch!
Maybe some xbmc addon will help?
