Ok Please install
then use wifi to connect
Assuming x86_64 repo, your device is already supported.
I'm not sure how I missed that detail :p

As always, the *.ko files have to be compiled for the specific Kernel
Only the firmware binaries are compatible with various kernels.
It appears that all you need for this device to function correctly is
And install the Wifi.tcz (extension) from the repo.
I'll upload the driver (built for kernel v4.2.9 used in TC-7.x)
and firmware files in two separate extensions to the repo,
however this process takes a few weeks.
So I've detailed the very easy steps for you to build the
rtl8723be.ko driver file right now for your system,
follow the steps as shown.
The process detailed in my last post was easy and actually completed
in less than five minutes.
? Where to fetch these files?
?Perhaps <repository> ?
? Search HOW2s for "repo" ?
=> See RepoBrowser http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/
=> Paste URL: <//packages> to on-line IE
& try to fetch 4 packages listed above.
== "COMMING SOON"
=> where:URL did I fetch previously? http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86_64/tcz
== BIG alphabetic list: no apparent <hot links>
scroll dow == NO rtl*
=> try to follow preiously logged fetches ?
=> NB <alphaListing> has <firmware*rtl*wifi*>
Perhaps the TC system is OOO ?
