I am trying to solder a wifi adapter right on to my raspberry pi zero so it takes up less space.
I've followed this video and some other diagrams on how to wire usb devices right on to the pi zero. Unfortunately, when i solder the adapter on the pi like this: then the pi doesn't detect it. It just runs normally like without it.
Some additional information:
- I know that the wifi adapter works and is compatible with linux (i tried it before attempting this).
- The adapter works fine when it's connected via a usb header so it isn't broken.
- The usb plug on my pi works normally.
