HOW TO fix Wifi on RockPro64 - Recalbox OS and upload roms on SSD External
#1
Question 
Hello everyone, hope I''m posting this in the right section. Need some help on two things, I have a Rockpro64 with a Roshambo case and recalbox OS installed, I've tried a generic WiFi module 802,11n but when I switch enable WiFi it doesn't do anything.. any idea how can I get it to work? I know there is a dedicated module but I want to avoid to spend extra money. I have tried running the terminal remotely, but no luck Sad don't really know what commands I should run
And the other thing is how can I upload ROMs in the external SSD as i bought the mini cartridge as well. When I move ROMs is like moving them in mini SD, do i need to use a converter and plug the SSD to my PC to transfer files?
Thanks in advance

@Mrfixit2001 existing images don't contain headers so you'd need to get him to include drivers in future builds

I was hoping my post would have nudged him, otherwise you could try posting an issue on his github repository:
