So I have been reading the forums lately and it seems a lot of people are facing the same problems when trying to set up there WiFi dongles in Raspbmc. I also noted that a lot of people didn’t seem to be getting much help. If you are having these problems do not worry help is at hand just follow the simple tutorial below.
Before you start this tutorial you must have your raspberry Pi connected up with your Ethernet cable plugged in.
Step 1: In XBMC navigate to Settings.
Step 2: Go to Add-ons
Step 3: Select Get Add-ons
Step 4: Now select XBMC.org Add-ons
Step 5: Select program Add-ons
Step 6: Select Network-Manager and click Install
Now that you have Network Manger installed go to XBMC main screen. Now follow the steps below.
Step 1: Go to program’s and select Network-Manager
Step 2: I’m presuming that your dongle is connected and it should be showing in Network Manager now. Simply click on it and enter your network password.
Step 3: You should now be on WiFi unplug your Ethernet and give it a try.
