WiiToo doesn't load wireless card
August 19, 2010 04:27PM
Hi guys,
I've tried to boot WiiToo in my Wii but I've got some error regarding the load of wireless card.

Here's the error code:

Bringing up interface wlan0 [OK]
ERROR: interface wlan0 does not exists. Ensure you have loaded the correct kernel module for yout hardware.
ERROR: net.wlan0 failed to start
ERROR: cannot start netmount as net.wlan0 would not start

Does anyone know why? There isn't the module in the kernel?
Very strange because in the site is written that has wireless card support.

Now I haven't a USB keyboard, so I tried that one with ssh ... but without network is hard!

Do you have the OpenFWWF firmware installed?

I don't know. Never heard of that.
What is it? How can I check that?

Search in google and look up the first link. You can get familiarized with it there. I wish we could post outside links.

You can. As long as it's not linking to anything illegal or of questionable legality.

I know I am a little late, but Thanks BG for pointing that out. Oh and did you get it working, Possa?

Well, I have exaclty the same problem as Possa.

zeveroth, why do you think OpenFWWF firmware has to be installed? I would assume that the Wiitoo package has been tested so far since without network connection there is not much you can do. To install software you need to use "emerge" and that will download the software from the internet and install it.

I'm using whiite linux on wii. This distribution does use openfwwf. There are 3 files in the fold /lib/firmware/b43open/, which are drivers for the wireless.

You can have a try. my experience is the wireless won't work if I remove the folder.

Thank you for your post. I meanwhile got it to work and updated the WiiToo! page on WiiBrew explaining how to configure WLAN.
