Wifi; how to?

connect the wifi dongle

> sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

network={
        ssid="your_ssid_here"
        psk="your_psk_here"
}

Glad you got it working in the end. btw, if network manager is installed on the jessie images, you have have used nmtui (or nmcli) instead, and basically just enable the wifi SSID you want to connect to and enter the password via the menu. It's probably the prefered way going forward... wpa_supplicant and /etc/network/interfaces seems to be going away bit by bit...

Whilst the instructions are appreciated to make the lives of others getting started easy, In addition to what bunny pointed out below, I'd also generate the wpa_supplicant file using the wpa_passphrase tool, so that an encrypted password is stored, not the plaintext one. Although one does have to wonder how much point there is to doing so, given that both WPA and WPA2 have been compromised.

Code:
sudo wpa_passphrase MYSSID passphrase > /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Code:
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid your_ssid_here
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Thanks for the evilbunny, evil minds obviously think alike Tongue Big Grin

If you plan to use mate you should use the network manager applet in mate, also the name of interfaces has been changed from wlan0 to something like wlx*.

OK I have wlx0013ef800c2c I wondered if it may be the device but didnt recognise it.  Unfortunately the HDMI isnt working with my screen so im in CLI only at the moment.

If you can boot to a GUI it should be easier to configure your wireless from there.

You will need to edit your wpa_supplicant with your router/modem settings to make a connection from the terminal.

I'm running armbian64 image and can do all that by running sudo armbian-config from an ssh session.

OK wpa_supplicant Im familiar with, thanks.

Ok looks like something is going wrong with the USB dongle, if I read it right there is an issue and its going to sleep, from dmesg:

Im falling back to Debian Jessie Minimal now, I want to keep it simple anyway, lets see if that helps.

OK after re-installing the CLI OS, its working now, if anyone has issues:

connect the wifi dongle

> sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

network={
        ssid="your_ssid_here"
        psk="your_psk_here"
}

CTRL X, Y and Enter to save

> sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid your_ssid_here
        wpa-psk your_psk_here

CTRL X, Y and Enter to save

> sudo reboot

Its difficult to know what level of experience each individual user has when providing a solution. I always suggest trying to load a GUI when trying to resolve wireless issues first. Using a terminal or an ssh session is always the defacto solution but there's so many irrelevant solutions on the internet at the moment they end up breaking your distribution rather than fix it.
