So I bought one of these boards a while ago to experiment with, and it runs fine except for one critical issue: no wifi dongles seem to work. I've bought and tried at least 4, and all of them fail, even though they are listed in the "compatible dongles" section of the wiki. All of them follow the same pattern. When I plug the dongle in (whether before booting or afterwards), Android proceeds to recognize it (and any activity LEDs on the dongle light up), says "turning on wifi" (in the wifi settings manager) for about 3 seconds, and succeeds in enabling it, but then just a frame later, it goes back to saying "turning on wifi" and wifi is disabled again. After doing this about 30-40 times, the OS crashes and reboots.
What is happened here and how can I fix it? I am using the ICS 4.0.3 release with kernel 3.1. Powered via a 5v battery at 2.1 mA.
I know these forums are mostly empty now, but if anyone's found a solution, please help.
