RPi3 built-in wireless interface
« on: June 28, 2016, 05:43:52 AM »
Paul_123 provided the extension of the firmware required by the built-in WiFi adapter. If you want to use the built-in WiFi, install firmware-rpi3-wireless.tcz and the usual wifi.tcz

Thanks Paul!

What about the onboard bluetooth adapter? It doesn't seem to work now unless I am missing something..

Thanks in advance

Bluetooth is a low priority feature for me, but user contribution welcome :)

Better to use the dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt by default to reduce the EMI interference until it's not supported.

Hello, trying to install the wifi extension. Getting a WARNING: 1 of 1 computed checksums did NOT match
Error on wireless-4.4.15-piCore_v7+.tcz

I'm assuming someone has updated the wifi extension without updating the checksum perhaps?

Is there a way to force it to ignore the warning in the mean time? Desperately need Wifi. Attending a hackathon, and am keen to try using TCL and a Pi. :)

Did you expand the mmcblk0p2 partition as in README?

No, I am quickly discovering that is probably the problem. I can't seem to work out how to resize the partition. Where can I learn?

EDIT: Sorry, I've been reading the wrong README! V5 isn't V7/8

Thanks for that, Wifi.tcz is installed now and apparently the firmware as well. Where can I find documentation on how to connect to wifi please?
