After performing a minimum install, there are variety of hardware/driver problems. But the most critical issue of all, is the WiFi. At first, I cannot seem to find a GUI, since it’s not installed from the base and later I learn that it must be configured through the .conf file.
As a previous Windows user, this is very strange to me, so I went ahead to do some research, but it quickly fell short. I’ve looked at some examples from blogs and tried to modify mine according to their guidelines, but when I restart the service, there were no dhcp persistent lease database or bound to 192.168.1.9. Here’s the /etc/network/interface,
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# Wireless Interface
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-group TKIP CCMP
Qualcomm Atheros AR9285
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
When I use the ethernet cable, it works, but does not indicate anything within Debian that internet access has been connected vice versa.
