WiFi not working!

Mon Mar 16, 2015 1:46 am

Sorry folks, I'm completely new at this.
Here's my problem, after several tries I (think) I finally got the mini USB WiFi working (the blue light is finally lit on it). I used the /etc/networks/interfaces command to get me there.

I purchased the USB mini WiFi when I purchases the Raspberry so I know it's compatible.

I next went to the WiFi icon in the GUI and when I opened it nothing was listed for Adapter (It's supposed to say wlan0) and when I click "scan" my WiFi network doesn't show up.

Now when I open the GUI (using NOOB) and I try a website, I get the ERROR Can't Connect.....

I've read some other question/answers to this problem, but don't understand 90% of the answers.

Thank in advance for your help.

The easiest way to set up wifi is to use the wireless network configuration utility in the GUI. Check out this link: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-ra ... h-raspbian

I checked out that site already. That's why I posted that there was no value listed in the ADAPTER window, and my SSID wasn't listed when I hit the scan button.

I just typed lsusb and the name of my wireless router appeared.

Very confused.
