I am very new in RaspBerry. I have installed RaspBian and connect my RaspBerry to my home router and I can connect to it using ssh.

Now I have to do the first configuration by the use of the sudo raspi-config command, I am following this tutorial: http://www.robertawood.com/blog/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-initial-setup-headless-no-monitor-or-keyboard-needed/raspberry-pi-initial-setup-part-9-raspi-config.html

As you can see in the previous link show a screenshot of what should I have to see launching the raspi-config application, this is the tutorial screenshot:

enter image description here

Ok, my doubt is that, executing raspi-config I see a different menu, this one:

enter image description here

As you can see the menu voices are pretty difference from the tutorial screenshot.

In particular, in the tutorial say that the first operation to do is check that I have the latest version of raspi-config using the update menu voices that I don't have in my menu.

Why my menus is pretty different from the tutorial one? Have I some problem with my RaspBian installation? How can I update my raspi-config if I have not this menu voice?

I have also another doubt: into the USB port of my RaspBerry I have put a wireless network adapter (a TP-LINK, model: TL-WN725N that should be compatible with RaspBerry). Have I to configure it into raspi-config applications or later in some other way?

I'd say that you should update raspi-config and the reboot.

Then you can configure the wifi through the terminal, or just boot into desktop


and then use the GUI.


  • actually, if anything, that is the up-to-date raspi-config view...
