I am controlling my Pi over LAN cable using Putty. Now I have two options:
- painful process of routing my computer's internet connection to Pi
- making Pi use my home WiFi to get internet access, also making it possible to put it somewhere else than on my messy table
Last time I was playing with Pi I went the first way, so now I want some change. Somewhere I learned a command to display all hardware messages (dmesg) and when I connected dongle, I saw this:
[ 13.179637] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Info - Firmware detected - version: 0.29
I assume this means the drivers are probably installed and operational so all I need is to configure to what WiFi should the dongle connect. But how can I do this? Do not forget I already set up static IP for the wired connection since I will only use it for direct cable connection. Also could you elaborate on what would the process look for 2 WiFi dongles?
