Using: Model B Version 2
Dongle: TP-Link model TL-WN823N
Following the tutorial above i have altered the files:
Despite hours of my best(though limited in ability) efforts, i cannot get the pi connected to the internet through the wifi.
I assume that dongle works, and is compatible with my pi as i can use the command to return a list of wireless networks:
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
the two files have been altered to show:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
ssid="YOUR WIFI NETWORK NAME"
psk="YOUR WIFI PASSWORD"
i simplified the later after seeing it was possible on websites offering similar tutorials. When i type iwconfig i get:
wlan0 unassociated nickname:"WIFI@Realtec"
Any help with this situation would be appreciated.
In my rage i have also managed to hide the network icon on the GUI, bonus points for how to turn that back on...
EDIT: I've now come code which works, but i'm unsure of why the initial bit did not, will be happy to accept an answer which can tell me this. I've also added the code i'm now using below to help anyone like myself who could end up here from google.
