If at first you don’t succeed try, try again…
When setting up my latest Raspberry Pi recently I discovered that configuring the wireless network on Raspbian ‘Stretch’ is done slightly differently from previous versions.
I’ve been using MATE as my main desktop for some time so when it came to installing Linux on my new laptop (an HP 6470b that I picked up second-hand) it was the obvious choice.
If you are trying to figure out how to manually configure the wireless network on your Raspberry Pi then you should be able to find what you need here.
The process here should work for most USB wireless devices, and should work on both a Raspberry Pi and an ordinary PC running Debian (or even Ubuntu) provided the device is supported by the current kernel.
Since MATE was now available in the Debian repositories I decided to see how well one of my older laptops (an HP 510 with a 1.4 Ghz Celeron CPU and 512MB RAM) would cope.
I wanted to create my own Linux based Wireless Access Point, but after trying unsuccessfully to follow several different sets of instructions I decided to see if I could simplify things a bit and came up with my own solution.
