Wifi works on the Raspberry Pi3

September 20, 2016 — BarryK
An exciting moment!

I have just booted up Quirky 8.0.18 (alpha) on my Raspberry Pi3, and was able to connect to the Internet via the wifi hotspot on my Mlais M52 phone.

I have already posted why the Pi3 was not seeing my wifi hotspot:

After bootup, I opened a terminal and typed "iw reg get" and it reported "country 00".

So, I typed "iw reg set AU", then ran my SNS (Simple Network Setup). A scan showed my network (curiously, none of my neighbours networks showed up), and I was online.

Posting from my Pi3 right now, running SeaMonkey.

I need to build this country-code setup into Quirky. That is high on the to-do list.
