Also:

sudo wifi.sh
No wifi devices found!

On a raspberry pi 3b+

firmware-rpi-bt.tcz

You need the kernel modules for WiFi,

wireless-<kernel>.tcz

wireless-tools.tcz, and wpa_supplicant.tcz too

Hi mbivol10
When you installed  wifi.tcz , these extensions should also have been installed:

The networkmanager extension is present in the repo http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/armv7/tcz/networkmanager.tcz.info

If you feel up to it, the build notes for networkmanager are here:

http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/armv7/tcz/src/networkmanager/compile_networkmanager

You would need to substitute "-march=armv8-a+crc -mtune=cortex-a72" for "-march=armv6zk -mtune=arm1176jzf-s -mfpu=vfp"

Are you trying to use the built in wifi in your RPi3/4?

The order you load the wifi extensions is important.

You need to load the firmware extensions first.

If you reboot and then load:

1. firmware-rpi-wifi
2. wireless-5.10.39-piCore-v8

..dmesg should indicate that the wireless driver loaded the wifi firmware.

aarch64 on a pi3 is not very well tested.   The extra overhead is really not worth it with the limited memory of a pi3.
