Everything was working fine a few months ago. I picked up my raspberry again and wrote the new raspian image on de microsd card.

Then came the problems: The raspberry was very slow and got several issues. Isseus: wpa_supplicant return code 1 And after the raspi has almost booted, it stucks at "applicable law" (last sentence).

I have changed the power supply for a better one, switched sd-card and disconnected all USB devices.

The issues appear when the USB dongle is plugged in. The raspi is very slow now.

I don't have these issues when using openelec for example.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi b+ And a TL-WN725N V2

Edit: I have installed the wifi drivers, no booting problems. I still have problems connecting to network

If you use identical hardware with two different sets of software and one set of software works and the other does not it strongly suggests faulty software.

I suggest you make sure you have the latest version of Raspbian and then run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo rpi-update. Perhaps this is a known issue which has been fixed.


Earlier model Pis (up to B+ even) had issues when connecting multiple USB devices. Try booting with only the wifi dongle and keyboard attached.

Also, as @joan said, first run sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo rpi-update
