Check that wifi/wireless-KERNEL are not listed "onboot" and then:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i firmware-ralinkwifi wifi
If wifi/wireless-KERNEL are listed "onboot", remove them and then reboot.

After loading firmware-ralinkwifi and then wifi, check dmesg with:
Code: [Select]
$ dmesg | tail -15 and post the result here.

Some time back, our wifi specialist notified having compiled RTL8723BS for
the Core [32bit-X86]. I'd like to try that on my problematic/EFI laptop.
But that will be installed and operated completely different from my familiar:
TC64pure; ie. without: icon > popup ...etc.
Therefore  I need the instructions:--
# wget <URLfor *.tcz>
$ tce-load -i <sequence of *.tcz>
# echo "cmndA confirms stage 1"
# <cmndA> <argument/s>
....
# echo "cmndN confirms stage N"
# <cmndN> <argument/s>
....
I've got core[32] installed and running: gpm & mc only.
--TIA.
  PS. possibly the *.tcz installs and confirmation-commands are to be paired?
 eg: install1,confirm1; install2,confirm2.....

Extract of `df` shows the SEQUENCE of the *.tcz needed to be installed
for this <core32:wifi>. But where's the URLs for script/s to call wifi?
-> df == ...
 /mnt/sda1
 /mnt/sda2
 /tmp/tcloop/bzip2-lib
 /tmp/tcloop/glib2
 /tmp/tcloop/gpm
 /tmp/tcloop/libffi

 /tmp/tcloop/libgpg-error
 /tmp/tcloop/libssh2

 /tmp/tcloop/wireless-4.19.10-tinycore

--- Can you confirm that the <df extract> seems OK:
first `tce-load -i` 2-firmware, then 9 depS for wifi ?
== TIA.

Hi labeas
Try this:

tce-load -i firmware-rtlwifi
tce-load -i rtl8723bs-KERNEL
tce-load -i wifi
sudo wifi.sh
