Setup A Wireless Device?

I want to start a project with my Banana Pi.

But first, I need to connect to it wirelessly. I currently have it on an ethernet connection, but how do I connect it to my wireless network?

I'm using a standard TP LINK 150N Adapter.

I can scan for wireless networks, and I found mine.

I went into : /etc/network/interfaces and added the following lines to it:

auto eth0
auto wlan0

iface eth0 int dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

        wireless-essid [ASUS]
        wireless-mode [MASTER]

What now? How do I make it automatically connect to the wireless? I won't always have a wired connection

No my issue isn't with the driver.

Plus, since I can scan, I"m sure the driver is already installed.

Going to try a fresh install with this tutorial: ... mand-line-in-linux/

Once I get this running, I need to figure out how to get Netbeans to compile on my PI. Aswell as find the includes file for this board.

let  try disconnect - unplug eth0  first, and make sure wlan0 it's present. then

/etc/init.d/networking  restart

and let see what interface status
$ ifconfig   
$ ip addr show

I try to ask here also, it is a banana pi routerboard, not an external device, i have problem with the internal device.

I tried the this configuration and works well. But, the wifi signal strength is very weak:
  1. IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"curacaong"  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
  2.           Mode:Master  Frequency:2.432 GHz  Access Point: AC:A2:13:5C:AC:81   
  3.           Bit Rate:300 Mb/s   Sensitivity:0/0  
  4.           Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
  5.           Encryption key:off
  6.           Power Management:off
  7.           Link Quality=90/100  Signal level=-67 dBm  Noise level=0 dBm
  8.           Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
  9.           Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
  10. Copy the Code
Copy the Code
I tried to increase the txpower, but it says:
  1. Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) :
  2. SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
Copy the Code
Anybody has same experience? Any suggestion to me?

Thanks in advanced.

I've re-installed Bananian and installed XDRP.

What should I do from the beginning?
