Netgear USB Wifi Dongle Detecting and powered by Rpi Zero, refuses to connect



  • Hello this is my first post on the forum, i have read the rules and the !! READ THIS FIRST !! post. The problem is, i want to play MS-DOS games but i need internet to download the required packages for Dosbox. Since i have the Zero i cant use ethernet (dont have a usb-ethernet adapter).I tried to use a Netgear A6210 Wifi Usb stick but it refuses to connect. When i use lsusb, the system detects the wifi stick as just "netgear". I have tried everything, including everything from https://retropie.org.uk/docs/.
