On a Raspberry Pi 2 with X300 extension board running Raspbian I can't detect WiFi adapter that comes with X300. Please advice on how to troubleshoot the absence of the adapter in the system.

X300 is connected. Rasbpian wpa_gui doesn't see the adapter.

In dmesg I can't see any wireless devices. lsusb outputs:

Standard Microsystems Corp.

Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub.

Standard Microsystems Corp.

Logitech, Inc. Optical Mouse.

A4 Tech Co.

  • First please edit your question and include a link to the x300 board. some of us have no idea what it is. Second does the board or adapter appear in the output from dmesg? Are you running their customized image? What other setup have you done? – Steve Robillard Nov 27 '15 at 15:46
  • @SteveRobillard thanks for the tips. I've added clarification on both points. – Maxim V. Pavlov Nov 27 '15 at 16:05
  • Can you add the output of lsusb? – Steve Robillard Nov 27 '15 at 16:07
  • @SteveRobillard sorry, the wireless device was my wireless keyboard and mouse dongle. I've removed it and wireless devices disappeared from dmesg output. lsusb output added. – Maxim V. Pavlov Nov 27 '15 at 16:18
  • No output with lsusb often means missing firmware. Executing dmesg | grep firmware often results in hints about it. – Diederik de Haas Dec 14 '15 at 15:54
