Hi stelian
... tce-load -wi wireless-5.10.77-piCore-v7 firmware-brcmwifi wifi
wifi.sh
That should probably be:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi firmware-rpi-wifi wifiso that the firmware loads first. There is no reason to specify  wireless-5.10.77-piCore-v7.  When you load  wifi.tcz , it
automatically loads  wireless-KERNEL.tcz.  The  tce-load  utility replaces the word  KERNEL  with the kernel version your
board is running. That way, the wireless modules you load will match the kernel you are running.

Thank you
Wifi is working well.
Is it possible to access (ssh or http) to the wifi by hostname?
At this time it's working only by IP.

zero config is not installed by default.

From memory, adding this one little feature requires lots of dependencies.

Hello,

This is my 1st trial with Tiny Core. I installed this new 13.1.0 version to a RPi 3B+. I could install and configure almost everything that I need using tutorials and forums excluding wifi.
It was also configured but only works and detects access points on the network if the ethernet cable is connected. There is no problem if I use Raspbian. What could be wrong? I found and older topic about a similar problem but it was not helpful.

Are you using the built-in wifi?

Did you load the wifi firmware extension before any other extensions?

Yes, it is the built-in.

It is my onboot.lst:
Quote
openssh.tcz
firmware-rpi-wifi.tcz
firmware-rpi-wifi
wifi.tcz
TC.tcz
x11vnc.tcz
mc.tcz
firefox.tcz
I wrote something wrong (wrongly remembered). I see the access points when the ethernet cable is disconnected but can't connect. When I ping the wifi's IP address of my RPi from my PC it responds until the cable is plugged. When I unplug the cable It stops responding.
Ethernet and wifi use Fix IP.  I tried wifi with DHCP but nothing change.

"sudo wifi.sh" should work with dhcp - do you see that the wifi firmware is successfully loaded in dmesg?

What should I exactly search in dmesg? It is very long and I can't identify what refers to wifi firmware.
What I tried: "tce-load -i firmware-rpi-wifi" and the same with wireless-KERNEL. Both sayes that already loaded.
With wifi.sh I disconnected from the router and connected again with dhcp. After checking the creditentals It connects with new IP but lost connection after I unplug the ethernet.

If wifi connects with a new ip address the firmware has loaded correctly.

If you start a connection on eth0, bring up wlan0 and then unplug eth0, I am not sure piCore will switch automatically from eth0 to wlan0.

I think you can hacking the metric of the interfaces to set the precedence.

Now I tried wifi without ethernet connected. RPi can connect to the router but there is no other communication. I can't ping neither from not toward RPi. Internet not accessible. I checked the router side too. It shows RPi connected in the client list. The same happens when the ethernet is connected at the begining then I unplug it. Wifi remains connected but communication stops.

It will not, there is not a network manager running.  Its not really the interface, but something needs to manage the routing table to change the default route.

Unable to download wireless-5.10.77-piCore.tcz directly - just me or is the file not there?
