I’m new to Raspberry Pi, Linux, and Hassio/Home assistant so I would like to ask for patience in advance.
I would like to install Hassio on it so that I can control my Lifx lights and Light strips for e.g. dim lights when playing media.
I have a
- Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (I know it should only be used for testing)
- 2 x WiFi Dongle
Note: I do not have an available ethernet port, therefore, WiFi is a mandatory requirement).
FYI these dongles worked straight away when I plugged them in my Raspian OS
I have recently had success setting up Home Assistant Core onto Raspian and had the wifi working fine, however, I have just found out that it doesn’t have the add-on store(and doing some googling it has become apparent that it’s beyond my ability to set it up).
I have tried flashing Hassio onto an SD card and had Hassio working but it was only successful with an ethernet connection. I have tried the following methods:
the my-network/system-connections onto a USB drive option but it doesn’t work.
using nmcli to set a static IP address
Note I get a fw missing on wlan0 and was wondering if it means “firmware missing”
This is what happens when I try to plug and unplug the adapter
Can someone please let me know if it is possible and I would appreciate it if someone can point to me in the correct direction.
