Okay, I have a RasPi running openelec, xbmc and using Realtek RTL8188CUS wifi adapter. My system recognizes the device. see below:
2.455786] smsc95xx 1-1.1:1.0: eth0: register 'smsc95xx' at usb-bcm2708_usb-1.1, smsc95xx USB 2.0 Ethernet, b8:27:eb:d7:8b:ba
[ 2.535374] usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg
[ 2.637094] usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=8176
[ 2.637134] usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 2.637152] usb 1-1.2: Product: Wireless N USB Adapter
[ 2.637165] usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: Realtek
[ 2.637177] usb 1-1.2: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001

But, I cannot connect to the network. My settings in "programs" are correct. (SSID, pwd)

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

Share the URLs and that will allow us to see what's happening during boot and whether there's any config error. If none, it's probably a case where you need a powered USB hub for the card to work correctly - it's becoming a recurring theme for RPi users.

You are trying to send an empty document, exiting.

cat /storage/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/os.openelec.settings/settings.xml | paste
xxxxxxx


I tried both a powered hub and plugged straight into a wall adapter...

I have 3 other types of Wifi mini-USB cards, in case we need to try other options...


Thanks again.

/var/log/messages shows: Linux version 3.2.26 ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) (gcc version 4.7.1 (GCC) ) #1 PREEMPT Tue Aug 7 02:01:26 CEST 2012

which is probably the day before this: github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/601 was fixed

Update the version of OpenELEC that you're using and the driver should be in the build and the card should work. At the moment there is clearly no driver else /sys/class/net/wlan0/address would exist, and this check is timing out before the network manage (connman) is started.

/var/log/messages shows that you have wlan0 this time so unlike before the driver is present and loading, but settings.xml shows that you didn't configure WLAN (did you perform a clean reinstall?) :whistle:
