@polikuo Thank you very much! It took me quite a bit of fuss to find that path. I can't find a wiki page giving me any info about this.
I added the blacklist and rebooted the TC, and an eth0 interface came out when I typed "ifconfig" into the terminal. Isn't eth0 an ethernet interface? But I don't have any ethernet cards on my MBA?! I did the same in Arch Linux and "wlan0" came out instead of eth0.
What should I do from here? How can I know that the "eth0" interface is actually valid?

several disros patch the wl driver to come up as wlanx, the tinycore wl driver is not patched for this, so it comes up as ethx - when I mentioned eth1, I hadn't expected you would not have an eth0.
