this link speaks only to having it work with Xenial Mate. Nothing for Xenial Minimal. Not sure what would be different about them;

> nmcli c
only shows wired connection on eth0

that link is no help.

I figured it out, though.  If anyone else comes across this thread:

First thing is to test if your usb dongle is a dud.  I ordered two, thankfully!!   One of them looks like its DOA.  The other one:

If you're running Xenial Minimal, you can use the command line to connect to your WiFi network.   I have WPA2 network security so I didn't test whether this works for WEP security.

1. enable network manager
> sudo service NetworkManager start
2. make sure your device is found
> lsusb
you should see a RealTek Semiconductor Wifi...
3. find out the deviceId.  its not wlan0 like some other forums would have you believe.
> nmcli d
mine was listed as 'wlx0013ef800a43'
4.  Connect!
> nmcli d wifi connect <WiFiSSID> password <WiFiPASSWORD> 
Hit Enter.

It said it successfully created a connection for wlx0013ef800a43

5. Test connection
> ifconfig 
now shows that I've picked up a DHCP IP addr from my wireless router.
> ping google.com
sends results Smile

Do I need to update the firmware on the board before I can use the wifi adapters? Or was my android image from the GUI just not supporting wifi at the time?
