Trouble with wlan0 on occidentalis 2

by doggitz on Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:54 am

I installed occidentalis 2 exactly as instructed by the web site. When I type "sudo ifconfig" to look at what is up, I do not see the wlan0. I looked at the web and found a few people using Raspian say that they were having trouble getting wlan0 to come up on boot and recommended using the command "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up". I tried this but to no avaiul. I did go back and check my raspi-config and did re-enable the sshd.

I am using a wired ethernet and MIdori works properly.

Would appreciate any help
Thanks

what wifi adapter are you using? is it plugged in to the pi or to a usb hub? is there an led lit on it?

i have this guy and it's got a blue led that's on solid if it's powered but not configured and blinks when it's working.

do you see the device when you type lsusb at the command line?

I am using the wireless usb adapter sold by adafruit - the ourlink model. I am also using a 4 port powered usb hub built by dynex. I have nothing elese plugged into the powered usb hub. When i issue the lsusb command as you suggested device 1 is the linux foundation 2.o root hub and 2-4 are standard microsystems. Device 5 is the 4 port hub, device 6 is morotola pcs ( I am using an Atrix keyboardband monitor) device 7 says Belkin and finally device 8 is the wlan adapter.

I have tries the sudo ifcong wlan0 up command with no luck

Would appreciate any suggestions

Thanks

I have the same situation. I am running occidentails2 using the Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module from Adafruit. Here is the output from my sudo ifconfig -a

I also tried the sudo ifconfig wlan0 up without any effect.
I have tried with and without a powered external hub
The Pi is powered by a 5.25 volt 1a power supply (from Adafruit)
