USB WiFi

Postby Rexnet » Fri Mar 20, 2015 10:31 am

I'm trying to get a Wifi USB adapter to recognize and I'm not having much luck with it. I had it plugged in during the install and it did not show up as an option when the network config came up. Now that I have the server installed and running I still can not see a way to add any hardware. Is this something I just need to do through the console? And has anyone done this, I have not noticed any configs using a usb wifi adapter.

Thanks.

Amahi does not support the use of a USB wifi dongle.

Your HDA must be hard wired.

See Hardware Requirements for more info.

Sorry, but Amahi does not support any wireless connection whatsoever for the HDA. As the link I shared in the previous post states, Amahi HDA requires a wired connection.
One wired network interface. Wireless interfaces are not supported in the server itself.
This is not to be confused with the fact that wireless devices will receive their DHCP lease from the HDA if it's acting as the DHCP server for your network.
