Pi image and Wifi = no AP mode
I tried the 0.80.3 image for Pi in the hopes it would allow me to connect wirelessly without having screen/keyboard/serial but I could not find see the AP the Pi was supposed to make. Anything to look for to find out why AP mode did not work, I think this feature is very usefull if it had worked.
Also wondering if there is a file I can "pre-seed" with wifi settings by mounting the image before writing it to an SD card? Was unable to grep my ssid name to locate a settings file. If possible to use the /boot partition that would be even better as it would allow easy access even from windows machines.
Maybe a list of reccomended manufacturers/chipset could clear up some confusion for the inexperienced users.
Still think config on /boot is the simplest way to get going with cheap wifi adapters.
Could be a user has ethernet available but not where the desired Wifi is, so adding arbitrary wifi details would be handy, even if it requires a little bash-fu or other magic.
It doesn't seen to be adding my wifi details to /etc/wpa_supplicant or did I miss something?
