Dongle your Pi w/Digi+ Pro - Its Easy

I think you are right about the Digi+ Pro not being compatible with WiFi [RPi's Internal WiFi]

I just got WiFi working with a Dongle using DietPi by editing a couple of files.


Bypass internal WiFi card and use your own WiFi Dongle

Do not configure WiFi in the Diet-pi GUI. Instead navigate via SSH to
/etc/wpa-supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Then add your network name and password. The file should look like this...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
ssid="network-name"
psk="network password"
}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Next navigate to;
/etc/network/interfaces

Then uncomment the line for hotplug wlan interfaces.

Reboot.
